Your safety is our top priority!

The team at Wilcox Electric can ensure your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms are flawlessly installed. We carry Kidde Devices, the #1 Home Fire Safety Brand in North America, but of course we can install any other brand you may have already purchased.

Ask us about upgrading to long-life lithium battery-powered carbon monoxide alarms and smoke detectors. These devices are built to last up to ten years providing your home with continuous protection for a decade, without the hassle of yearly battery replacements.

The National Fire Alarm Code (NFPA 72) requires smoke detectors to be replaced after 10 years or when they become inoperable, whichever comes first. Most Smoke Detectors have an expiration date (or date of manufacture) that’s visible on the outer casing of the device.

Learn about the regulations that govern smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors, which are specific to D.C.

"We discovered an electrical issue in the morning when our siding contractor opened up the wall on the back of our house -- a nail had been hammered directly through an electrical wire probably decades ago, and the wire was just barely hanging on. Wilcox was able to get an electrician out to us within hours to do the work before the siding was put back up on our house. It was a challenging spot to work on and meet code, but they did an excellent job, coming up with a good solution that they expertly and relatively quickly implemented. They are very professional and, importantly, very personable too. We highly recommend Wilcox!"
