Default Fire protection

After seeing my old house burn down (planned) my mind shifted to fire prevention, I thought I'd share what know about fire extinguishers.

A few years back I was talking with the company that did the fire extinguishers at work. He explained that the cheap fire extinguishers you see at Home Depot, Walmart etc. will completely trash your house and do a lot of damage. We had a lot of expensive electronics at work, computer room etc. and he recommended Halotron for those expensive equipment areas. The agent on the cheap extinguishers will get into everything.

So I bought a couple of these. They are 10x more expensive, but based on what he told me, they are well worth it. You also have to go much larger to cover the same size fire.


I have (had) Z-Wave CO / Smoke Detectors in both houses. On the new house I'm gonna go with all Nest.

Also going with an Induction Cooktop stove.
