|WHERE NOT TO INSTALL SMOKE ALARMS
1. Where combustion particles are produced. Combustion particles form
when something burns. Avoid installing in the areas include poorly
ventilated kitchens, garages, and furnace rooms. Keep units at least
6m from the sources of combustion particles(stove,furnace,water heater,
space heater)if possible. Ventilate these areas as much as possible.
