It depends on how much you value your life and the life of your family members!I'm a home inspector, career firefighter & fire cause and origin investigator.Smoke and CO alarms alert you to a problem. Sprinkler systems put the fire out or contain it until the fire department arrives. 50 years ago furniture, draperies and carpert were made of natural fibers which burned slower and produced much less heat. Today everything is synthetic (oil based) which burns much faster and hotter and produces much more thick black smoke.The HRR (Heat Release Rate) of combustibles has increased ten-fold. A room reaches "flashover" at 1100 degrees. Once this temp is reached everything in the room ignites. Everone in the room, including firemen in full protective clothing, is DEAD! Nobody survives a flashover. It used to take 20-25 minutes to reach flashover, now with synthetics it takes as little as 3 minutes. No fire department will be able to respond and deploy hoselines in 3 minutes. A sprinkler system reduces the rate of burning and toxic gasses emitted giving you and your family a fighting chance to escape. And they actually use less water than firemen with hoses!There has not been a recorded fatality in a sprinklered home!Yes it is more expensive to install after initial construction.No you probably won't recoup your entire "financial" investment. Yes it will require maintenance.Yes it may just save your life or the life of your loved ones!I hope you install it, maintain it and never have to find out if it works!www.911inspections.com
