Let CMP Plumbing help keep your family and your home safe in the event of a fire. You most likely have a couple of fire extinguishers around the house. That’s great if you keep them charged, know how to properly use them and have the time to use them safely. A better solution is to have CMP Plumbing install an automatic home fire sprinkler system for you. We install NFPA 13D Certified Residential Fire Systems so you can have peace of mind knowing that your family and your home are protected.
Residential Fire Suppression System Questions
What is NFPA 13D?
NFPA 13D is a residential sprinkler design standard from the National Fire Protection Association focused on one and two family dwellings and manufactured homes. You can learn more about the standard on the NFPA website.
Why Should I Install a Fire Sprinkler System?
Fires can happen when you least expect them. They commonly happen at night when you and your family are asleep. Fires are also fast; they can go from a tiny flame to a total blaze in as little as three minutes. Fire sprinklers can suppress and often extinguish a fire before the fire department arrives, giving your family time to escape.
How Much Does A Home Sprinkler System Cost?
It varies from home to home depending on the size of the home and the amount of rooms that will be protected by the sprinkler system. Contact us today and we’ll be able to give you an estimate on how much your new sprinkler system might cost.
Does Every Sprinkler Go Off At The Same Time?
No. Residential fire systems are designed so that only the sprinkler heads directly affected by the heat of a fire become activated, not the whole system.
How Much Water Damage Will There Be When It Activates?
Less than if the fire department needs to put it out with their hoses. When activated, a sprinkler head will spray 15 to 20 gallons per minute. This is about 1/10th of the amount of water that comes out of a firefighter’s hose which sprays at approximately 125-250 gallons per minute.
