Remembered that I'm starting a new tradition...

...to replace smoke detector batteries and test them on Christmas Day.

I used to use Daylight Saving Time transitions as when to test and replace batteries. Pretty sure I used to do it in the spring when I was last a home owner. Then I lived in apartments that had hard-wired smoke detectors, though one place I stayed in had battery backup in the detectors...and it got really annoying when it needed to be replaced, which was unexpected...but I lived close to a Wal-Mart then.

I was kind of using the DST transitions to test and replace, though I went to replace in the fall. But, DST has gotten a lot longer, and I seemed to think there was a 6 month recommendation somewhere...so I thought I should find a new anniversary date to do things.

I figured June 25th and December 25th would be nice days to use.

Though I guess times have changed....because I tried to google to find out...and there were lots of vague suggestions and recommendations...but the consensus seems to be replace batteries annual, using either one of the DST transitions, a birthday or some other date. And, to test according to manufacturer's recommendation.

Well, while replacing the detectors, I read the writing on the inside and it says to test weekly. I doubt any of my neighbors test theirs that often, plus I wonder if they even bother with regular battery replacements....wish I had better neighbors.

Oh well, too late to go back to old schedule I guess....will see how this new tradition goes :lalala:

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
