Home fire sprinkler systems automatically contain fires and prevent flames from further spreading to other rooms of the house. Not only do fire sprinkler systems protect homeowners and families, fire sprinkler systems also minimize the overall damage to a building that may result from smoke, fire, and sources of water, than if the fire continued unabated or if fire hose lines were used. Fire sprinklers operate when a fire reaches a certain temperature which will then activate the sprinkler head. Only the sprinklers in the area of the fire will activate. The sprinkler head will spray water directly onto the fire from the ceiling. The use of a residential fire sprinkler system will provide a safer home for you and your family, as well as possibly reduce homeowner insurance costs.
