Electrician not needed
So, apparently I have some smoke detectors that are battery-operated and some that are hardwired into the house. The fire department came by today to do the smoke-detector inspection, and the hardwired ones didn't go off. So my realtor says I need an electrician to come in to look at this and get them working. Anyone have someone to recommend to do this? So I guess my realtor is bringing an electrician in tomorrow, so it's not something I have to deal with.

(I'm wondering if I can't just rip those ones out and install new battery-operated ones in their place. Not sure what that would mean for the wiring that's there for the existing ones, though.) (According to the realtor, I can't do this.)

Alot of times those hard wires detectors are also wired to a direct 911 response or to the sprinkler system in the building.

My sincere hope is that I will have no future need of an electrician, because that will likely mean I haven't been able to sell my house.

Well, if you ever purchase again. (You could be crazy enough someday; who knows.)

Most of my electrical work is in walls, not under tables :-)
