We are taking the following precautions due to the COVID-19 virus. All of our technicians have masks, glasses, latex gloves and shoe booties if they have to enter your home. Our technicians also have hand sanitizer and disinfectants that they use after every call.
If we are there to do maintenance and we don’t have to come inside your home to get to the equipment, we are asking homeowners to adjust the thermostat for us so we can do the system maintenance without entering the home. We will not be shaking hands and will keep our distance from customers.

Residential Smoke Detector Requirements in Northwest Arkansas
In order to ensure that you are properly alerted in the event of a fire, a smoke detector will need to be installed in every bedroom and in every level of your home; you will also need to have a smoke detector installed in the hallways outside your bedrooms.
Our experts at Paschal Air, Plumbing & Electric are up to date on local requirements and code, and can help you identify the appropriate locations for installing your smoke detectors.
Choosing the Right Type of Smoke Detector
Ionization smoke detectors: These devices are more efficient at detecting flaming fires. If there is a fire, smoke will enter the device’s ionization chamber and disrupt the ion flow, which will trigger the alarm.
Photoelectric smoke detectors: These devices are best at detecting smoldering fires. The alarm will set off when light from smoke is reflected on the sensor.
Dual-sensor smoke detectors: We recommend this option for most households since it uses both photoelectric and ionization technology, providing more comprehensive and efficient protection.
Our experts will go over the different options available during our initial visit to help you select the device that best meets your needs.
Regular Smoke Detector Maintenance and Testing
We recommend testing your smoke detectors on a monthly basis. This is a simple task: all you need to do is push the “test” button on the smoke detector, and if your device is still in good condition you should hear the alarm sound. If the alarm fails to come on after you have pushed the “test” button, try replacing the batteries; if that still doesn’t work, faulty wiring may be causing the issue and will need to be inspected by a professional.
In order to avoid interruptions and safety risks, make sure to replace the batteries on your smoke detector every year. The smoke detector should also be replaced every 10 years.
