There are two types of fire security systems. Most people are familiar with smoke alarms. They might not be familiar with heat detectors, which utilizes a detecting element inside the unit that activates when it reaches a certain predetermined fixed temperature. While they are slower than smoke detectors at detecting fires, they have a significantly lower false alarm rate.
Loss of heat detection is best suited for small, confined spaces where are fire might burn rapidly. It is also useful for spaces where detection speed is not a prime consideration. If you have questions about whether or not your property is suited for heat detectors, associates at Berkshire Alarms Systems will be glad to assist you.
