How often should our smoke detectors be changed?

Typical smoke alarms last about eight to ten years, after which they should be replaced. Like most electrical devices, smoke alarms wear out. You may want to write the purchase date with a marker on the inside of your unit. That way, you’ll know when to replace it. We also recommend that you change smoke detector batteries annually.
