A commercial fire alarm system is something you may have wanted for your business but you have put off, thinking you can’t fit it into your budget. The question is – can you afford NOT to make room for it? If your business hasn’t experienced a fire, consider yourself lucky. Many others have, and many of them were able to save their assets due to an early warning from a commercial fire alarm system.

The cost for a commercial fire alarm system

Just like any other investment, you need to understand what the cost will be before you lock yourself into a purchase. The best way for you to find out how much a commercial fire alarm system will cost your business is to have the professionals at 1st Alarm come in to give you an estimate. They will be able to provide you with a good comparison in options and prices.

Usually, the cost will depend on the size of your building. It also will take into consideration any local building codes related to a commercial fire alarm system. The cost will also vary depending on the type of commercial fire alarm system and the features that you choose.

Here are a few tips to make the process a little easier:

Don’t be shy. Ask questions. Make sure that you understand exactly how the commercial fire alarm system works, how much it costs, and how it will help protect your business.

Be informed. Do research before you have anyone come to give you an estimate. Have an idea of what features you want and need. For instance – Do you want your fire system monitored?

There are many fire alarm system companies looking for your business – so make sure you only talk to the companies that have good reputations. 1st Alarm is the best in the region so they are the best place to start.  They can give you references for their other clients to help build your trust and confidence.

The cost for equipment is usually around $300-$500 on an annual basis. Monitoring – $50-$250 per month. Again, the actual cost for equipment depends on the size and type of building you have, and the features you choose.
