Homeowners Desire Sprinklered Homes


Survey highlights likelihood of homeowners purchasing sprinklered homes

In a 2014 Harris Poll conducted on behalf of the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition, homeowners demonstrated improved awareness about the benefits of home fire sprinklers. And while there is a need for ongoing education to overcome common myths about sprinklers:

  • 74 percent of homeowners said they are more likely to buy a home with fire sprinklers than without them.
  • 98 percent understand fire can happen to anyone, no matter the age of the home.
  • 78 percent say fire sprinklers provide the ultimate fire protection in the home.
  • 70 percent say a sprinklered home has more value than a home without sprinklers.
