Kudos to Allstate for recommending home fire sprinklers on its website. The information provided by the fourth largest property and casualty insurance company leaves no doubt that it promotes residential sprinklers as a way to reduce damage during a fire.
Citing the U.S. fire problem and stating that home fire sprinklers are “tough on fires and smart about water damage” Allstate advices homeowners to consider fire sprinklers as one of three fire safety devices and tools for fire damage prevention.
The site states; “Even though most homes have at least one smoke alarm, homeowners may be surprised to learn that smoke alarms are just one part of a state-of-the-art fire protection system.” Allstate also informs that, “since residential sprinklers discharge water at low rate, water damage to your home is also minimized.”
Allstate also tells readers, “one more important thing to keep in mind: installing or building with an automatic sprinkler system can help you save up to 15% on homeowners insurance.
