Common Homeowner Questions
Q: If there is a fire in my home do all the sprinklers spray water at once?
A: No, when a fire
ignites in your home only the single closest sprinkler will activate. Most home fires are suppressed from a single sprinkler,
although sometimes the second closest sprinkler will activate to provide additional protection.
Q: I’m building
a custom home, are there options to hide sprinklers so they aren’t as noticeable?
A: Yes, we offer a wide variety
of options to fit the style of any home. Concealed sprinklers are popular amongst homeowners, because they hide the sprinkler
up above the ceiling or in walls so that they are virtually unnoticeable.
Q: Can cooking or smoking in my home
cause the sprinklers to go off accidentally?
A: No, sprinklers only activate from high temperatures in excess of 155
ºF, not from smoke. Smoke from cigars, cigarettes or even burnt toast will not trigger sprinklers to discharge.
Q: Aren’t sprinkler systems expensive to install in homes?
A: No, the cost of installing a sprinkler system in
a new home is typically about 1% of the total home cost. Plus, many insurance companies offer discounts up to 15% on homeowner’s
insurance premiums, so you can save money in the long term.
