Home Sprinkler Systems
More than 3, 000 lives are lost every year due to fire. Problems with fires in the U.S. are overwhelmingly home fire issues. According to the National Fire Protection Association, home fires account for about 80% of all fire deaths in a typical year and more than 95% of all fire deaths in structure fires in a typical year. Installing a home sprinkler system in your residence would cost approximately $1.50 per square foot.
