Smoke detectors save much more than kiloWatt hours. Smoke detectors save lives!
Today's wireless smoke detectors are very reliable and easy to install. It is an easy DIY project and you don't need an electrician to install it.

However, what The Green Electrician does is the installation of the hardwired smoke detectors. The hardwired smoke detectors come in a wide variety of models, but there are generally two kinds of them: smoke and smoke+CO detectors.
Smoke detectors are required in Toronto, Etobicoke, Mississauga and the GTA on new construction, but don't forget to add them when you renovate or rewire your home. The smoke detector is required on every level of the home. in Toronto, Etobicoke, Mississauga and GTA there are rules regarding the smoke detector locations in bedrooms. In areas where open fire could be present (fireplace, gas stove, furnace, etc), the smoke detector has to include a CO detector option.

For many people, the smoke detector is not an object of beauty, but they really save lives and have to be located on the ceiling, where regular airflow occurs. Hiding it in the corners or closets makes no sense nor is it allowed.
With the hardwired smoke detectors you will never have to change the battery in the detector, but it is a good habit to change the hardware itself every 7-10 years just to keep your installation updated. The smoke detector generations keep getting more sensitive and more efficient. The most expensive part of your installation, the wiring, would already be installed in the walls anyway!
