Check the Smoke Detectors in Your McHenry New Homes

home safety

Check the smoke detector in your McHenry new homes.

Those who have not recently purchased McHenry new homes may have something aging in their houses that could affect their families’ safety. It’s something that we often forget to check because it’s one of our household items that are (hopefully) rarely used. What are we talking about? Smoke detectors.

It is a little known fact, but smoke detectors that are more than 10 years old should be replaced with a new one since age affects the sensitivity of the detector. To find the date, you should look on or under the cover of your smoke detector. If you cannot find the date, then just be safe and replace the unit.

However, if you want to forgo all of the upgrades and maintenance required of an older home, then you can give us a call. We are a leading new home builder in McHenry, Richmond, Poplar Grove and Williams Bay.

We take special care in building homes that will last a lifetime, and help to keep your family happy, comfortable and safe. Our homes include all of the newest energy efficient features that will save you money on heating and cooling costs.

With decorated models in our communities of Poplar Grove, McHenry, Williams Bay and Richmond new homes open for viewing, you owe it to yourself and your family to see what a great home we can build for you.
