How much does a fire sprinkler system cost?

It is essential to know how much a fire sprinkler system costs. While the installation cost varies by location, it typically ranges from about $1-2 per square foot for new fire sprinkler system installations and about $2.50 per square foot for fire sprinkler retrofits.

The average annual operating costs will depend on which type of system you choose: wet pipe or dry pipe. Wet pipe systems are more expensive because water must be piped through them continuously for cooling purposes; these systems are also more labor-intensive to maintain due to their complexity. Dry pipe systems provide constant air pressure in the piping that activates underground sprinklers when temperatures exceed predetermined thresholds; they require less maintenance than wet pipe systems but may have higher repair bills if there is a fire.

As a property owner concerned with safety, you need to determine your budget for a fire sprinkler system. A dry pipe sprinkler system will be your best option for a smaller budget. Keep in mind that while the system’s initial cost may seem high, it will pay for itself if it saves just one life or prevents one significant loss due to fire damage.

Don’t forget; many insurance companies offer a discount on your homeowner’s insurance when you have a working fire sprinkler system in your building. Therefore, if you consider purchasing, building, or remodeling a structure of any type, installing a fire sprinkler system might be beneficial. This is especially true if you are building a commercial or industrial design but could be helpful for any residential property.

Overall, sprinkler systems can be expensive but typically pay for themselves with time because they save lives and property, which is priceless.
