Imagine the exposure for home fire sprinklers if all Realtors made them as coveted a feature in new homes as granite countertops or hardwood floors. An article recently appearing on Realtor.com places this technology in the limelight, highlighting fire sprinkler cost, operation, and minimal maintenance.
"As more folks are educated about the life-saving value [of home fire sprinklers], we are seeing more homes including them," Lorraine Carli, NFPA vice president of Outeach and Advocacy and president of the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC), told Realtor.com. "Home fire sprinklers are one of the best ways to protect you and your family in the event of a blaze."
The article underscores water pressure needed for fire sprinklers, the heat sensitivity of a sprinkler's glass tube, and general maintenance homeowners can do on their own. Demystifying this technology to agents in the business of selling homes can help them make them a more attractive feature for potential homebuyers.
