Residential fire sprinklers have received very little attention until recently. Fire sprinklers can safeguard your home and, more importantly, dramatically increase your chances of survival in a fire. Sprinklers simply make sense.
Residential fire sprinklers can be installed in both new home constructions and existing home structures. Installing a fire sprinkler protection system during the construction of your new home can be a more cost-effective option. Plus, you can save money on your homeowner’s insurance with the installation of a fire sprinkler system. Modern fire sprinkler heads are sleek and attractive, and can be concealed in your home.

Here are five statements about home sprinkler systems from the United States Fire Administration. Are they true or false?
False! Only the sprinkler over the fire will activate. The sprinkler heads react to temperatures in each room individually. Thus, fire in a bedroom will activate only the sprinkler in that room.
False! Records, which have been compiled for well over 50 years, prove the likelihood of this occurring is very remote. Furthermore, home sprinklers will be specifically designed and will be rigorously tested to minimize such accidents.
False! The sprinkler system will limit a fire’s growth. Therefore, damage from a home sprinkler system will be much less severe than the smoke and fire damage if the fire had gone on unabated or even the water damage caused by water from firefighting hose lines.
False! Current estimates suggest that when a home is under construction, a home sprinkler system should cost only $1.50 – $2.50 per square foot.
False! The traditional, commercial-type sprinklers as well as sprinklers for home use are now being designed to fit in with almost any décor.
