  • Myth: Fire sprinklers go off all the time, even if there is no fire.
  • Truth: Fire sprinklers are very reliable and only go off when there is a fire. They are equipped with heat-sensitive heads that detect smoke and heat, and only activate when the temperature reaches a certain point.
  • Myth: Fire sprinklers will damage my property more than the fire itself.
  • Truth: Fire sprinklers are designed to put out a fire before it gets out of control, which can help to minimize damage to your property. In fact, studies have shown that fire sprinklers can reduce property damage by up to 90%.
  • Myth: Fire sprinklers are expensive to install and maintain.
  • Truth: The cost of installing and maintaining fire sprinklers has decreased significantly in recent years. In fact, many insurance companies offer discounts on premiums to homeowners who have fire sprinklers installed.
  • Myth: Fire sprinklers are difficult to install and maintain.
  • Truth: Fire sprinklers are relatively easy to install and maintain. Most systems can be installed by a qualified professional in a few days. And once they are installed, they require very little maintenance.
