At XTREME Fire Protection, Inc. in Davie, FL, we are dedicating more time than ever before towards raising awareness of the importance of home fire sprinkler systems.
Whether you are a homeowner, real estate agent, or builder, installing an effective fire safety system could well mean the difference between life and death.
The Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) is a leading resource for accurate, non-commercial information and materials relating to home fire sprinklers for consumers, fire service workers, builders, and other professionals.
HFSC’s free educational materials give answers to common myths and misconceptions about the operation of home fire systems, explain how they work, and how they provide affordable protection.
The Cost of Home Fire Sprinklers
A study performed in September 2013 by the Fire Protection Research Foundation compares current home fire sprinkler system costs against a 2008 benchmark study to help consumers gain a better understanding of how increasingly widespread adoption of sprinkler ordinances impacts system cost.
Using a larger sample size, the current study attempts to gain a better understanding of the impact of sprinkler ordinances on home fire sprinkler system costs and other factors that affect system cost. In the 2013 report, the average cost per square foot was $1.35. In the 2008 report, the average cost per square foot was $1.61.
