Remember to Change Your Clocks, Check Your Alarms when Daylight Saving Time Ends
Daylight Saving Time ends soon after Halloween. This is a great time to Change Your Clocks, Check Your Alarms. As you go around your home changing the clocks, check the manufacturing date printed on the back of your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Smoke alarms should be replaced after 10 years and carbon monoxide alarms should be replaced after five to seven years. Unless you have an alarm with a 10-year sealed battery, this is a good time to change the battery. Even hardwired alarms have back-up batteries that need changing.
