What is a heat alarm used for?

July 30, 2008

Heat alarms are designed to alarm when they sense a certain temperature, and are less sensitive to temperatures, humidity and insects.  They will not react to smoke and should not be used to replace alarms, rather to supplement your system in certain locations where they are preferred, such as in a garage or attic.

We offer three heat detectors.  The Kidde® model HD135F and Firex® model ADH heat alarms sounds at a temperature of 135 degrees Fahrenheit, while the Kidde® model HD200 heat alarm sounds at a temperature of 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
