your smoke detectors

* Functional Test every year with aerosol smoke.

* Must be tested for sensitivity every 2 years with UL approved testing device.

* Smoke Detectors must be replaced every 10 years or sent in to be re-calibrated by the manufacturer.  Replacement is almost always the most practical option.
