Does your smoke detector always start beeping at the most inconvenient moments? The nonstop chirping as you’re trying to sleep or do some reading can be a real nuisance. We have a simple tip to ensure you’re changing your smoke detector batteries often enough.
Check the batteries in your smoke detectors at the same time every year.
If you live in an area that observes Daylight Saving Time (DST)
You “gain” an hour when it is time to set your clocks back to standard time so change the batteries in your smoke detectors when you change your clocks.
• Daylight Saving Time ended on Sunday, October 28, 2018 in the northern hemisphere, across much of Europe and some of Mexico.
• Sunday, November 4, 2018 is the end of Daylight Saving Time across parts of Canada, the United States (excluding Hawaii and most of Arizona), and some of Mexico.
If you live where DST is not observed, choose Halloween or an easy-to-remember anniversary
Numerous countries—as well as individual states and territories within countries that do mark DST—keep standard time instead of changing to Daylight Saving Time. You don’t gain an hour but you can put your time to good use. Check your smoke detectors and their batteries.
