Why Fire Suppression Devices Are A Necessary Investment For Homeowners Many homeowners struggle to find the appropriate balance between protecting their property and staying within a reasonable budget when they consider protective options like insurance coverage and home defense products. Although there are limits as to what every homeowner can afford, fire protection is one area where cutting costs really does not make sense. Buying a fire suppression device is a fairly inexpensive investment which more than pays off, especially considering the frequency and high cost of home fires. The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) stated in 2013 that house fires continue to be a common problem in the U.S. During a five-year period, structure fires - which are fires that involve the actual structure of the building, rather than just one room - happened in more than 360,000 homes, killing more than 2,000 people and injuring more than 13,000. Shockingly, home fires kill an average of 7 people each day. It only makes sense for homeowners to get the most effective and dependable fire protection systems especially when you consider this high fatality rate as well as the devastating expenses that can be associated with a home fire, even one in which no one is hurt. The NFPA has found that most home fires originate from the bedroom, the living or family room, and the kitchen. The use of candles or indoor smoking is usually the cause of bedroom and living room fires so it goes without saying that if homeowners would like to prevent these fires, they should avoid nighttime candle use, keep tabs on the access that children have to matches or lighters, smoke outdoors and put out all candles prior to leaving the house. The potential for kitchen fires, however, can be slightly more difficult to totally eliminate, as homeowners cannot simply stop using the oven or stove to remove the risk. However, this possibility may not be as trivial as some homeowners may believe since the NFPA reports that cooking equipment is the main cause of home structure fires and home injuries. Sometimes accidents just happen even in spite of the fact that homeowners are being attentive while cooking and putting an emphasis on safe habits to their children. Having an active line of protection in position is important for homeowners to have in light of this fact. It used to be considered enough to store a fire extinguisher in the kitchen, but these days, there are far more effective means of stopping fires which don't require the person present to put himself or herself in danger. One of the safest choices for homeowners who take fire suppression seriously is an automatic fire suppression device. These devices are positioned near the stove or oven and activated by flames to release a fire suppressant powder. In terms of actually stopping fires from spreading, these devices are as effective - if not more so - than devices such as smoke detectors and fire extinguishers and are typically inexpensive, unobtrusive and low-maintenance. A home should be outfitted with more than just a fire suppressor for adequate fire protection; they also should be meticulous about testing their smoke detectors and keeping a fire extinguisher in easy reach, to protect against other causes of fire. But for any homeowner who frequently uses his or her kitchen and does not want to risk the economic and human consequences that come with unchecked home fires, a fire suppression device is certainly a worthwhile invention.
