The Smoke Alarm Is Chirping
When that battery is getting low, the alarm chirps to let you know. It’s important not to ignore the chirping; that’s why it’s so annoying. If you ignore it long enough, it will stop because the battery is dead and you’re no longer protected.
Why is my smoke alarm chirping if it’s hard wired?
Most hard-wired smoke detectors include a 9-volt backup battery that’s supposed to kick in if your home loses electricity. If that battery is running low, your detector alerts you with a high-pitched beep. Remove the old battery and replace it with a new one. Press the “test” button and listen for a beep.
