Most people don’t often think about plumbers when it comes to the fire sprinkler systems found in most commercial buildings and some homes. When you consider what goes into installing a fire sprinkler system, including the necessary materials, it makes perfect sense that plumbers would be involved.
Plumbers that are qualified and knowledgeable when it comes to installing these systems are providing a very important service that has become much more in demand than it once was. Most cities and towns now have building codes and ordinances that require at least commercial buildings to have a fire sprinkler system installed. In addition to having the system installed, it must also be maintained and inspected on a regular basis.
In addition to commercial buildings, fire sprinklers are becoming more and more popular in residential homes. In fact, there are some states, such as California and Pennsylvania that now require this added safety feature in all newly constructed homes.
How Fire Sprinkler Systems Work
A fire sprinkler system is designed and installed to help decrease damage should a fire start in a building. They are programmed to automatically trigger when smoke is detected in a building or when the temperature reaches a certain level. When working properly, they can help to extinguish flames from a fire or at least limit the amount of damage that a fire causes.
Not only do fire sprinkler systems help to protect buildings and everything in them, they can also help save lives. New studies show that the risk of perishing in a home fire decreases by up to 80% when both fire sprinklers and smoke detectors are properly installed.
Finding a Qualified Plumber
When looking for a qualified plumber who is experienced in the installation of fire sprinklers, be sure you take the time to do your homework. This means asking questions and researching websites to see if the plumber you are considering has the correct credentials for installing or maintaining a fire sprinkler system. You can also check with the Arizona state licensing board to verify if your plumber is certified.
