Re: How often to change smoke detector batteries

I'm guilty of waiting til they chirp. I do "test" them more often. I guess my cheapness won't allow me to throw away a good battery. I've found that since I switched to wired, the batteries last for several years.

I'm in the same boat. We have three wired units, About 5 years ago replaced them with combo wired battery backup units and added a CO sensor.

I try to follow the "Fall Back" battery change rule but don't always remember. Have not had them beep due to low battery.
