Why is my smoke detector chirping?
If you hear a faint chirping or beeping noise approximately every 30 seconds, your smoke detector is probably trying to tell you something: It's hungry! Some smoke detectors are built to sound a warning alarm when the battery power begins to run low. By chirping, the smoke detector is trying to get your attention and convince you to put a new battery inside it.

Of course, if you properly maintain your smoke detector, you probably won't hear this type of chirping.
