DUCT SMOKE DETECTORS ARE THE FIRST STEP for Ensuring Safety

Stop Accidents Before They Happen

There aren't many things that can be worse than an indoors fire. You may have a store or an office you want to protect, but even your own house can be in danger. You deserve to know that everything is OK, and the feeling of safety in your home and your workplace is one of the best things in life.

Installing duct smoke detectors is an easy and cheap way to protect your life’s work. They let you know any changes in the air that filter through the ventilation ducts, and as soon as anything changes for the worst, you’ll know it before it escalates.

Duct smoke detectors are a fundamental part of anyone’s alarm system. Don’t be the exception.

New York Engineers are experts when it comes to taking care of your house, your store, your apartment, and your spaces in general. Don’t risk your life’s work by letting strangers handle your safety. Choose only the best!

1. What Is A Duct Smoke Detector?

A duct smoke detector is a device that's installed at strategic positions inside of a building to detect the presence of smoke in the air. They're placed in the ventilation ducts so that they can sense any changes in the air that moves around the rooms.

They offer many advantages over conventional smoke detectors since they tend to be more sensitive to changes in the air. The detectors are also placed in the ducts where all the air circulates in a building, so they're more efficient.

  1. Where Should You Place Them?

Duct smoke detectors are placed in the ventilation ducts. However, there’s more to it than that.

Duct smoke detectors have the advantage of detecting smoke in rooms where they’re not installed because they’re in the ducts that connect different spaces. Therefore, you don’t have to place them in each room.

Ideally, you want to take advantage of their large radius, so spread them around your installations.

3. How Do Duct Smoke Detectors Work?

They’re able to detect the changes in the elements that make up the air flowing through the vents.

From there, the system can perform several actions to prevent the smoke from spreading and inform you about the issue. Of course, they will sound an alarm, but today’s smoke detectors can contain the smoke by sealing the vents and even shut down the whole ventilation system!

  1. Why Are Duct Smoke Detectors Important?

Smoke is the most famous sign of trouble. In fact, even those who never experienced a fire knows that seeing smoke inside their homes means immediate danger.

Duct smoke detectors provide more than the functions of conventional smoke detectors. They take it to the next level by applying automatic measures to keep the dangers contained and everyone in the building safe.

Lacking a smoke detector is the easiest way to place yourself in the way of danger.

  1. How Can You Benefit From Duct Smoke Detectors?

Duct smoke detectors are the most efficient method to keep fire hazards at bay.

Even if the fire is contained in another room, the smoke can filter to adjacent spaces through the ventilation system. Conventional smoke detectors let you know when a fire occurs, but duct smoke detectors help you stay away from the dangerous fumes generated by the fire.

Remember, the most dangerous part of a fire is the smoke!

Advantages Of Duct Smoke Detectors

  1. Early Detection

Smoke doesn't appear after a fire is spreading; smoke is the first sign of a fire, one that shows up before the issue escalates.

A smoke detector spots the smoke when it’s starting inside its room, but duct smoke detectors can detect a fire forming in any place around it. Therefore, as soon as the possibility of fire arises in any room of your home or business, you’ll know it.

If you spot the flames, the damage has already started, but duct smoke detectors prevent the slightest loss.

  1. System Shutdown.

The most significant danger of an indoors fire is smoke inhalation, and a duct smoke detector can shut down the entire ventilation system to prevent the air from being forced into the other rooms.

That way, the chances of escaping increase dramatically.

As an excellent (and lifesaving) addition, if the cause of the fire is electrical, shutting off the entire system will prevent further damages to your air conditioning unit. By reducing the needed repairs after the fire dies, it saves both lives and money.

3. Sealing Your Ducts

Again, the most crucial part of managing a fire breaking out is to prevent people inside from inhaling the smoke.

Modern duct smoke detectors have the added functionality to kill the flow of air; this effectively isolates the fire, which can go a long way in saving lives and preventing damage.

Even better, by sealing the ducts, you prevent oxygen from entering and strengthening the fire, which may just be enough for it to die out on its own after a couple of hours. Of course, it depends on how flammable is the room and the stuff in there, but it’s a neat possibility nonetheless.

  1. Environment And System Evaluation

Overall, a duct smoke detector lets you know the situation of your surroundings.

In addition to that, this system also lets you know if your ventilation system is working correctly. If a malfunction occurs, you’ll probably learn it from your device sensing the smoke generated.

New York Engineers also give you the advantage of being able to call for an evaluation of your duct smoke detector system. If anything out of the ordinary appears, we can fix the issue in minutes!
