How Much Does a Fire Sprinkler System Cost?
One of the most important things you can have in your home or building is a working, well-maintained fire sprinkler system. Fire sprinklers provide fire protection coverage 24 hours a day, responding almost instantly to the heat from a fire and knocking back the flames, smoke and heat while you wait for the fire department to arrive.
Average Fire Sprinkler Costs
The best news about fire sprinklers? They’re not expensive! The average costs for a fire sprinkler system are as follows:
- A complete fire sprinkler system integrated into a new construction project costs about $1 – 2 per square foot. This includes equipment and installation.
- Retrofitting an existing building usually costs between $2 – 7 per square foot.
- Retrofitting a high rise building will run you about $2 – 4 per square foot.
- Installing a fire sprinkler in a historic building can sometimes be more expensive – up to $10 per square foot. This occurs only when there are strict design standards required to meet the building’s aesthetic requirements.
In addition to keeping your building protected from fires, fire sprinkler systems provide added cost benefits. Many insurance companies offer steep discounts for building owners and homeowners who install fire sprinklers – sometimes as much as 60%!
