Reasons Your Fire Alarm is Constantly Beeping

fire alarm testing gainesville flWhen property owners complain about fire alarms chirping or beeping, the main problem usually stems from power issues. At AEGIS Fire & Integrated Services, our comprehensive fire protection company is here to help you have peace of mind when you have a defective fire alarm. Below we offer three things you can do to check to see why your fire alarm could be beeping.

  1. Check the battery in your fire alarm to see if the battery has become loose or if the battery drawer became open. During this stage, we also recommend changing the batteries to eliminate the possibility that your beeping problem isn’t due to a low battery.
  2. When your fire alarm is clogged with dust, debris, and spider webs, these fragments can impair your alarms ability to detect air from smoke, causing your alarm to beep randomly. It is important to regularly clean your smoke alarm free of dust and debris to help prolong its life.
  3. Since smoke detectors typically have a lifespan of 10 years or less, if your alarm is constantly beeping, your alarm could be expired and need a new system altogether.
