What kind of fire extinguisher should I get for my home?

I’m glad you have asked that! First, you should familiarize yourself with the different kinds of fire extinguishers and types of fires that they can handle. Let me start by mentioning that I own a fire extinguisher and service company called Lompoc Fire Equipment Service. Also, I have a web site at www.fireprotectionguys.com that you will find informative.

The most popular fire extinguishers are called ABC or Multipurpose. ABC denotes the kinds of fires that this extinguisher will extinguish. The “A” stands for ordinary combustibles such as wood, paper, fabrics, trash, etc. The “B” stands for burning liquids such as grease, oils, gasoline. The “C” means energized electrical fires such as a toaster, microwave, iron, etc. Most businesses are required to have this particular fire extinguisher installed in the building because it handles most fire hazards. I recommend at least one five or ten pound multipurpose dry chemical fire extinguisher for the home. If your house has two levels then one should be placed on each level.

I am a distributor for Amerex fire extinguishers, which I consider the best in quality and economical to maintain. Amerex fire extinguishers have a six year warranty and their High Performance extinguishers have a twelve year warranty. These are used for high hazards and frequent use. The model numbers are 594 & 581. The models that I had mentioned for your home are 5LB, B500 and 10L, B456. These extinguishers contain a non-toxic special mono ammonium phosphate dry chemical that insulates class A fires and melts at approximately 350 degrees. It smothers and breaks the chain reaction of class B fires and will not conduct electricity back to the operator. The model B417T is a good compliment for your car, it is a 2.5LB. ABC dry chemical extinguisher and comes with a vehicle strap bracket.

There are other types of fire extinguishers made for certain hazards and they come in different sizes and can be seen at www.fireprotectionguys.com. Please feel free to call us at our Toll Free number 877-418-3473 between 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM.
