Redundant for life.
You heat your house and water with LP?
As you say, they are cheap enough and if they give you a sense of security they must be worth it.
What about radon and mold detectors? it would seem only prudent.
It really is good to be prepared, we have smoke detectors in our house and CO detectors are required by law here , although not provided with the house when bought last year. I'll likely get one someday, maybe.
Around here the security companies are on constant hardsell as well and offer programs and devices to protect against burglary, home invasion and health emergencies.
Since refrigeration has saved more lives than all of the above, temperature alarms to warn of it's failure may be prudent.
On the proactive side there are weapons, fire extinguishers, and Escape
ladders, along with MRE's and stockpiled bottled water and food.
As long as all these things are legal, available and optional, then each of us can have all the devices we need to feel secure in an uncertain world and no more.
Me? I have enough of those things to meet my needs,and when you consider all those angels, I guess we really are both ..."Redundant for life"!
BTW; That redundacy post really was only intended to be humorous,so wear a belt and suspenders and don't get caught with your pants down!
