Fire Sprinkler Initiative Combining data from the cost assessment report by NFPA's Fire Protection Research Foundation, and the residential sprinklers ISO fact sheet, the Fire Sprinkler Initiative has created one succinct resource providing valuable information on insurance discounts for sprinklers systems. According to the report, discount savings percentages ranged from 0 to 10% among all companies and agencies surveyed, with an average discount savings percentage premium of 7%.

The ISO fact sheet found credits for installation of fire sprinkler protection - up to 13% for full sprinkler protection (including all areas of a home, including attics, bathrooms, closets,and attached structures) and 8% for fire sprinkler protection of all areas of a home excluding the attic, bathrooms, closets, and attached structures as long as fire detection equipment is installed in those areas where sprinklers are omitted.
