Choose photoelectric smoke alarms when protecting your home or apartment | #ESC_LLC #SmokeAlarm #LifeSafety #Safety | It’s a known fact that when detecting smoke in a residential-type setting, photoelectric smoke alarms detect and notify faster than ionization smoke detectors. Ionization detectors work better where there’s more flame than smoke, as opposed to photoelectrics that operate on the premise of obstruction of light in a light chamber. “Don’t skimp where it comes to smoke detection in your home or apartment. The additional money you spend for photoelectric smoke alarms can save your life and that of your family,” says John Larkin, Senior Partner with ESC of Greater Ohio.
