A Growing Trend That’s Here to Stay
Fire Sprinklers are Coming to Your Community
If you haven’t yet written a policy for a home with fire sprinklers, it’s just a matter of time.
Fire sprinklers have been saving lives and protecting property for more than a century. Home fire sprinkler technology has also evolved greatly over the past 25 years, increasing its use dramatically. Today, reduced labor costs and low-profile sprinklers have helped make home fire sprinkler systems a highly desirable option, particularly in new construction.
Installing fire sprinklers in homes is quickly catching on in communities large and small, urban and rural. And because fire sprinklers simply have no life safety equal, national codes now require sprinklers in new home construction. Similar local ordinances are in place in hundreds of jurisdictions across the United States and Canada.
Sprinklers Increase a Home’s Value
Savvy homebuyers are increasingly choosing to build homes with the options they want and need – including home fire safety. A national poll conducted by Harris Interactive® found that over two-thirds (69 percent) of U.S. homeowners say having fire sprinklers increases a home’s value.
