I'm bad, I haven't changed my clocks yet. Thanks for the reminder!
Stevens Point, WI
I find today’s batteries last longer than a year so I wait to change them until they “chirp.” They are back up anyway as my detectors are hard wired.
Hate to say it, but I don't. I can see by the green light that all is well. I replace when they start beeping and telling me to do so.
Good morning Tammy. The alarms at our home and office are hard wired, but we change the batteries in all our rental properties.
Make it a great week!
No I wait until they start to beep at me and my wife tells me to change them.
No, we didn't do it either. We are going to get batteries this week too.
I usually wait for the annoying chirp before I change them.
Tammy - This is a great reminder. It is good to have a specific date to change the batteries each year.
No we didn't change them. We subscribe to the method of waiting for the chirp and then we change them all. We have about 10 to change.
No, I have not in years, they are hard wired in so the battery only gets used when the power goes out. None have chirp yet so I think I am good.
I typically do, but my detectors are hard wired now and monitored by my alarm company. I spent 11 years teaching the gospel of changing your batteries when the time changes, so it does stick with me.
I do, but not every six months as we are instructed to do so.
I changed our batteries today. I change them when we change the clocks.
Thank you for the reminder.
Good Monday morning Tammy. I change my smoke detector batteries the first of the year.
It is said that when you hit daylight savings time you should also swap out those batteries. A good question Tammy.
I need to buy batteries, too. Thanks for the reminder, Tammy.
