  • Whether you live in the city or in the country, fires can be destructive – especially during the holidays when people have lit their trees, candles, and various other holiday preparations. Whenever you have a lot of lights or open flames, it because doubly important to protect your homes against fire. With thirty-eight percent of fatal fire injuries occurring in homes with no smoke alarms, installing an alarm like the Kidde Worry-Free Alarm is a simple step you can take to help protect your family.

    Kidde Worry Free Alarms

    An alarm for every room in the house!

    Installation was very easy. Since I was installing my alarm in the kitchen, I just needed the single drywall screw to attach the alarm to the wall. All said, installation took about 2 minutes. The benefit of the special Kidde Worry Free Kitchen Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm is that it uses “intelligent” sensing technology to prevent any “false alarms.” With my old smoke detector, the alarm would go off every time I cooked hamburgers. (I promise I wasn’t burning them!) Since installing the Kidde Worry Free Alarm, I haven’t had to throw open windows and start fanning the detector with a dish towel – not even once! The Kitchen alarm also has a carbon monoxide detector and a talking voice alarm.

    Kidde Worry Free Kitchen Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm

    A “smart” alarm that detects real fires vs. cooking smoke.

    I didn’t know until recently that smoke alarms have a “lifespan” of about 10 years. Since I’m not sure how old our alarms are, I’m taking the step of replacing all of our smoke alarms with new smoke alarms. With the old smoke detectors, I needed to replace the battery every 6 months to ensure the alarms were in working order. Kidde Worry Free Smoke Alarms are powered by a long-life lithium battery, which means you don’t have to replace any batteries…ever. Once you install the Kidde alarm, it automatically turns “on” and doesn’t need to be replaced for 10 years.

    Not to get too “mathy”, but replacing your smoke alarm’s 9V battery twice a year costs at least $5/year. For 10 years, that means you’ll spend $50 in replacement batteries. The cost of the Kidde Worry-Free Smoke Alarm starts at $25. That means you’ll save about $25 or more across the life of your alarm, just by switching to Kidde Worry-Free Alarms.

    This holiday season, you can help ensure that your friends and families are safe against fire and carbon monoxide. With four different alarm options – one for the Living Area, Kitchen, Hallway (which includes an LED “light” to help light escape routes,) and Bedroom (with a talking voice alarm to help wake people up) – Kidde has a smoke alarm for every room in the house. You can find Kidde Worry Free Smoke Alarms at select home improvement stores and other retailers nationwide and costs $25-$49 (depending on the model.)

    About Kidde Worry-Free Smoke Alarms
