    Thanks WW. I just bought 4 new ones before the Christmas holidays. :) I'll bet I have 15 in this house, but there battery not hard wired. I believe in redundancy when it comes to detectors! :yes:

    I bought new fire extinguishers this past weekend. Last year was the fire alarms that have the 10 year batteries.

    I'll post this here. I got new neighbors about 2 years ago. Not long after I heard him running a saw. Nosey that I am I went over. He was cutting green hickory,oak and maple. I made a comment about taking several years to dry. No he was planning on burning it that winter. Fast forward to Wednesday nite. My wife woke me up and said there was an ambulance in front of our barn. When I went out and asked the driver what was going on he sad their CO detectors went off from a clogged chimney but they were ok. I offered to help the neighbor clean it but he declined. Luckily a tragedy was averted.
