Having a fire insurance policy, in addition to a homeowners insurance in the Philippines, is a surefire (pun intended) way to secure your home and finances. Installing a few heat and smoke detectors can also go a long way. The challenge, however, is what to get.
To give you a run down of the types of alarms you can get, we’ve listed the most common ones below:
While it may take longer for it to detect a fire, heat detectors are generally more accurate. As the name suggests, heat detectors are able to recognize heat presence and catch rise in air temperature. This device is fit for storage facilities, warehouses, and other areas with a steamy and humid environment.
Ionization Smoke Detector
Great in handling aggressive types of fire, an ionization smoke detector has two plates with a constant electrical current passing through. Once smoke disrupts the current, it will sound its alarm.
Photoelectric Smoke Detector
While the ionization smoke detector detects fire through electric currents, a photoelectric smoke detector can do so with light. This device works best in identifying small fires.
Ionization/Photoelectric Smoke Detector
Said to be the best of both smoke detectors, this machine will be a plus to any establishment as its dual-function can help detect any type of fire.
Investing in your and others’ safety and security is never pointless. Being able to ensure it is something you’ll be thankful for should any unfortunate incident come your way.
