Check your alarms and change the batteries this weekend

Saturday, November 2, 2019

If we ever get to stay on Daylight Saving Time, we'll have to figure out other reminders to check our smoke alarms and change the batteries, but until then:

Change the batteries in your smoke alarms. Even if they are wired into your electrical system there is a back up battery for when the power is out.

I just found out there's a battery in my thermostat. I found out when the thermostat stopped working and started flashing LO LO LO LO. Not particularly helpful, particularly in the middle of the night. I had to go to the internet to find out it needed new batteries. I didn't even know it had old batteries. Since we've had it for eight years, you are probably safe with yours - but now you know what it means when it starts flashing you.
