Most Common Misconception
Common misconceptions about sprinkler systems (also called residential fire-protection systems and residential fire-suppression systems) prevent people from including one in their home. The fear of a misfiring sprinkler head and the belief that a room fire activates the entire system are two such common misconceptions.
A residential sprinkler system will save a homeowner money in the event of a fire. When activated, a sprinkler head will spray 15 to 20 gallons per minute. Water damage from fire suppressed by a home sprinkler system incurs an average of $2,200 in costs; water damage from a fire suppressed by a fire department adds up to an average of $45,000. The fire department will dump and average 250 gallons per minute as well as chopping holes in the roof.

A correctly created as well as mounted fire defense system should offer your structure reliably for ninety years or more. The decision you make now will certainly affect your building as well as its tenants throughout your lifetime and also past.

Generally, mounting fire sprinklers is an one-time affair, so constructing proprietors and also home managers often have little or no history with this specialized type of professional.
