Repair & Maintenance for Fire Protection Equipment
With proper installation and regular inspections, a fire alarm and life safety system provides years of protection for your Houston home, business, or facility. Regularly scheduled inspections and maintenance procedures are the keys to continuing that reliable performance, and major fire equipment manufacturers recommend annual or more frequent testing to ensure maximum reliability.
Common Causes of Fire Alarm Failure
Component failures are rare in fire alarm and life safety systems less than 10 years old. In fact, these systems often perform reliably for 10 to 20 years before components reach the end of their useful lives. Like any mechanical or electronic system, however, fire protection systems may be subject to early component failure. Risk factors include:
- Poor installation procedures
- Improper or neglected maintenance
- Humidity & temperature extremes
- Environmental contaminants
- Voltage fluctuations
- Equipment age
