Improve Your Kitchen to Help Sell Your Home

My husband and I recently put our home onto the market, because we were expecting a baby and need to upgrade to something larger. When offers rolled in that were really low, we decided to ask our realtor why people thought the house was worth so much less than it was. He was honest and told us that he had heard our kitchen was a bit of an eyesore. He was right, but I had actually put off renovations because I knew we were looking to sell the home soon. We took the gamble and renovated our kitchen. It paid off! We received an offer that was near our asking price, and it made the kitchen renovations well worth it! I created this blog to help others struggling to sell their homes realize that a few small improvements can help you finally sell your home!

Why Investing In A Fire Sprinkler System Is Ideal

Are you getting a new house built that you want to make sure is safeguarded in a fire? You may want to consider getting a fire sprinkler system installed, as it can prevent massive property damage if the house catches on fire. Find out in this article what you should know about fire sprinkler systems, as well as what getting one is estimated to cost.

Why Should a Homeowner Get a Fire Sprinkler System?

The great thing about having fire sprinkler in your house is that they can begin putting out flames before the fire department arrives. It is even possible for the sprinklers to completely extinguish the flames without any help from the fire department. Fire sprinklers are able to release a lot of high-pressured water once they are activated. The sprinklers in a multipurpose system will be connected to the existing plumbing pipes in your home. However, a stand-alone sprinkler system is equipped with separate pipes than what is used for your other plumbing needs.

You won't have to worry about a lot of water damage from all of the sprinklers coming on in a fire. Basically, the sprinklers are equipped with sensors that will only activate when exposed to an unnatural level of heat. The room that is on fire will be the only one that gets saturated with water. The only way that multiple sprinklers will come on is if they malfunction or the flames are getting close to another area of your house.

You don't have to only rely on the sprinklers being activated to know when there is a fire. The system is also equipped with a flow alarm that will sound off when a sprinkler is activated. An alarm bell can be installed on the outside of your house as well to alert neighbors that your house is on fire.

What Does a Fire Sprinkler System Cost?

You should expect to pay a little over $0.30 or more for each square foot of your house that is being equipped with fire sprinklers. The type of fire sprinkler system being installed will also have an effect on the price. A stand-alone fire sprinkler system will be the most expensive to install because it requires additional plumbing pipes to be installed.
