How do i make sure my smoke detector works?
Make sure you change the battery in your smoke detector once a year. In the meantime, press the button on your smoke detector to make sure it works at least once a month. If at any time your smoke detector begins to "chirp" consistently this is a signal that your smoke detector battery needs to be changed.
