Heat Detectors vs Smoke Detectors
Heat Sensors vs Smoke Detectors
Smoke detectors and heat detectors or sensors are both used to detect fires. When paired with an alarm system, one or both of these sensors can alert the system and cause all sirens to activate.
The main difference between smoke detectors and heat sensors is how they activate. Smoke detectors activate when they detect smoke, and heat sensors activate when they detect high temperatures or temperatures that are rising unusually fast.
Generally, a smoke detector will detect a fire more quickly than a heat sensor. But there are some cases where it is better to use heat sensors, especially in rooms such as attics, laundry rooms and garages are not ideal for smoke alarms due to the activities performed in that room.
It’s is not a bad idea to use a combination smoke and heat detectors in your home.
