Why is my smoke detector chirping?
This is the function that advises you that the 9-volt battery needs replacement. Remove the unit from the wall or ceiling, usually by a 1/2 twist. The battery is located in the back of the unit. Replace the battery with a fresh 9-volt. Remember to change the battery in each unit, twice a year when we move the clocks for daylight savings and standard time. Call us if you have questions.
