Remodeling 101: How to Choose a Home Fire Extinguisher






Every home needs at least one fire extinguisher that?s kept readily at hand. And yet many homeowners either (A.) know they don?t have a fire extinguisher and don?t think it?s a problem (I’m embarrassed to admit I was in this category until I started researching this post), or (B.) own a fire extinguisher (or several) but have no idea how to operate it or even if it would still work in case of a fire. Here?s what you should know about fire extinguishers to help keep your home and family safe.

Above: Spotted at the La Garçonne boutique in New York City: a sleek silver fire extinguisher. Photograph by Michael A. Muller for Remodelista.

1. Do I really need a fire extinguisher in my home"
You do; every home should have at least one portable fire extinguisher installed in an easily accessible spot. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has determined that almost half the fires in the home occur in the kitchen, so that?s a good place to start.

 
Above: A tried a true option: The Kidde Fire Extinguisher Pro 210 weighs 7.5 pounds and is suitable for classes A, B, and C; $49.99 via Kidde.
2. How many fire extinguishers should I have, and where"
According to the NFPA, you need a fire extinguisher on each floor of your home, including the basement. One in the garage is also recommended. They should be installed in spots that are easy to reach?and close to an exit so you don?t have to run past the flames to leave the area if the fire cannot be controlled.
Above: The First Alert 2-A:10-B:C Heavy Duty Rechargeable Fire Extinguisher is currently on sale for $53.99.
3. How do I choose a fire extinguisher"
The label on the device will show a rating that includes some or all of the letters A, B, and C. These indicate the different types of fire that a particular device can handle: A is for ordinary combustibles like trash, wood, paper, and cloth. B is for flammable liquids, such as cooking oil, gasoline and paint thinner. C is for live electricity?electrical appliances or machinery, wiring, fuse boxes. (K is sometimes used to designate kitchen-specific extinguishers that fight cooking oil and grease fires.)
The number before the A or B indicates the device?s relative effectiveness against that type of fire. (The C designation never has a number.) The NFPA recommends at least 2-A and 10-B. Luckily, there are multipurpose ABC fire extinguishers, so you don?t need to stop to consider what type of fire you?re fighting.
However, the flame-retardant chemical in an ABC extinguisher can damage the surface of your oven. For that reason, some homeowners opt for a BC extinguisher in their kitchen, since a fire there will most likely be caused by cooking oil.
Look for a fire extinguisher that?s not too heavy for you and your family members to handle, has clear and easy-to-read instructions on the label and pressure gauge, and has a rating certified by Underwriters Laboratories. Amerex, Kidde, and First Alert are among the reputable ...
