Should You Replace Your Fire Alarm?


Making sure your alarm is working and in the best possible condition can save lives. However, alarms are not infallible, and sometimes they, too – begin to show wear and tear. Here are some reasons why you might need to get your fire alarm replaced.

Why You Should Replace Your Fire Alarm

The no-brainer reason right off the top is that the alarm itself has failed and is no longer working. We’ll usually discover this during inspections and it’ll need to be addressed immediately. Even if it’s defective or malfunctioning, falling out of compliance with local state and federal authorities and regulations can cost you a pretty penny. Make sure that your building is as safe as you can possibly make it or it could cost you.

The second reason is that when we do inspections, we sometimes find that certain components of an alarm aren’t working or need replacement. That OR the alarm is showing signs that it will fail in the near future. Just like components of a car, when it’s time to replace a part, it’s simply time to replace it.

The last reason to get a new alarm is if you’re doing renovations – where you’ll have to cope with new codes and standards that might make purchasing an upgrade necessary.


Most fire alarm systems last around 12-15 years depending on the make and model. Keep in mind, however – that that life span depends on your taking care of it and making sure that it’s properly installed, fixed and maintained over the years. When these things aren’t happening, your alarm could wear out sooner than expected and you might not realize that you need it replaced until it’s too late.

Why Go New?

It should go without saying that newer systems come with a whole host of advantages. Technology has taken a massive step in recent years and the effectiveness of modernized alarms has increased tenfold. In addition, the newer your system is, the less you’ll have to worry about tests, repairs, and inspections – which for a little while – will save you and your company some money. Most importantly – if a fire does break out – lives will be saved.

If you need to repair your alarm or are worried you may have to replace your system soon, then call Protegis Fire & Safety and we’ll be happy to discuss your needs.
