Repair & Maintenance for Fire Protection Equipment

With proper installation and regular inspections, a fire alarm and life safety system provide 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
  • Vandalism
  • Improper or neglected maintenance
  • Humidity & temperature extremes
  • Environmental contaminants
  • Voltage fluctuations
  • Equipment age

American Fire Systems pretty much does it all. They can handle your new construction installs, and all of your accounts after construction has left the building. I have been referred to at times as the AFS cheerleader, but with good reason. Not only do they have a Class A Team, but have also saved us thousands of dollars with their honesty and commitment to going the extra mile. They are, hands down, your best solution for fire protection and security.

If you have not worked with American Fire Systems then it's time to start. These two men David and Craig will not do you wrong. They are on board from preliminary design to final punch out and owner acceptance. They handle all aspects of their work in a very professional manner. They pay their bills on time and you very seldom see a change order. Let's put it this way- I trust them so much I would play poker with them over the phone.

AFS believes that the work they do matters... and that the manner in which they do it is even more important. I can't say enough about the passion and integrity they employ in their relentless pursuit of customer satisfaction. I also think being in an industry that provides life saving systems is completely appropriate for who they are as individuals.
