Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. As of July 2009, Colorado law requires you have a carbon monoxide detector installed within 15 feet of every sleeping area. That means 15 ft or less from the doorway of any room designed for sleeping.
You see, your water heater may leak carbon monoxide a colorless odorless gas that can cause injury or death.
A detector will set off an alarm to alert you if there is a leak. This law applies to installing or replacing any fuel fired appliance.

Yes we can! Our licensed and insured electricians are experienced and qualified to install, repair, and maintain all types of electric systems, including NEST.

All smoke detectors should be replaced every ten years. If your wired smoke detector isn’t beeping or responding correctly when tested then you should replace it sooner. You should not keep any detector longer than 10 years, even if it’s still working correctly.

This is not the same as changing the batteries in your smoke detector. You should do that as soon as the alert beeping from the smoke or carbon monoxide detector begins.

At Done Electric, we understand that protecting your home and loved ones is paramount.
The cost of installing a smoke detector in your Denver or Aurora home can vary, largely depending on two key factors: your proximity to our expert electricians and the type of detector you choose.
While battery-powered detectors offer a quick and cost-effective solution, hardwired installations, known for their reliability and integration into your home’s electrical system, tend to run slightly higher, typically ranging between $150 to $250. However, the true value lies in the peace of mind and safety these devices provide.

We proudly offer FREE estimates to help you make the most informed decision. With labor costs between $80 to $120 per hour, excluding the detector, our focus remains on delivering exceptional value and safety for your family.
Choose Done for a seamless smoke detector installation experience backed by our commitment to your safety and satisfaction.

For optimal protection, smoke detectors should be installed in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of your home, including the basement. CO detectors should be placed on every level of the home, especially near sleeping areas, and at least 15 feet away from fuel-burning appliances to prevent false alarms. Avoid placing CO detectors directly above or beside fuel-burning appliances, as this can lead to false positives. Done Electric can assess your home’s layout and recommend the best locations for installing smoke and CO detectors, ensuring comprehensive coverage and adherence to safety guidelines and local building codes. Our expert installation services ensure your detectors are properly positioned to provide the earliest warning possible in the event of a fire or CO leak.

Smoke detectors and CO detectors should be tested monthly to ensure they are working correctly, and batteries should be replaced at least once a year or as recommended by the manufacturer. Additionally, smoke detectors should be replaced every 10 years, and CO detectors have a varying lifespan depending on the brand, typically between 5 to 10 years. It’s important to adhere to these guidelines to maintain the effectiveness of the detectors. Done Electric offers maintenance services for smoke and CO detectors, including testing, battery replacement, and upgrading outdated units. Our professionals can help keep your detectors in optimal working condition, providing peace of mind that your home is protected against smoke and CO risks.

Installing both smoke detectors and CO detectors in your home is essential for early detection of fires and carbon monoxide leaks, respectively. Smoke detectors alert you to the presence of smoke, often the first sign of a fire, giving you and your family time to evacuate and call for help. CO detectors are equally important as carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that can be lethal if inhaled in large quantities, and it can leak from faulty appliances like furnaces or gas stoves. Together, these detectors play a crucial role in protecting against the risks of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning, ensuring the safety and well-being of your household. Done Electric can ensure that these life-saving devices are correctly installed and positioned in key areas throughout your home for maximum protection.
