Please advise the approx cost for installation of smoke alarm for 2 bedroom unit. Thank you

If you don't mind changing batteries every 6-12 months during the year then you can pick up these smoke alarms from any hardware or even discount store. The also come in blister packs (2 to 6 or more for value packs) Most will screw mount to attach to wall. You can also use self stick foam tape to 'stick it' anywhere. Try to put them in a high spot on wall or ceiling depending on the surface (crumbly textured surface won't stick well. It will have to be mounted with a screw) The higher locations will give you quicker response time but It's harder to get at without a step ladder. Lower units have slower response time as the smoke has to collect and lower to the point where the alarm is.
*** Note; you will need to check your fire code requirements for placement of alarms. (though once this minimal requirement is met there is no reason you can't add more in other locations for added coverage; like a large walk in closet, baby's room, laundry room, etc.)
* Getting back to your question, I'm guessing you have the updated required powered alarms or need to have a "Powered" fire alarm. The newer homes (well last 20 years is new to me) have low voltage power lines running from room to room where the alarms are placed. If you required to install this type of system then depending on the ceiling access (crawl space, lowered ceiling, etc.) and the need to run the wires "hidden" behind wall and ceiling will increase the installation time and labor costs. Electrician or authorized fire alarm technician will be needed. They should check your fire alarm requirements for you local, indicate locations for alarms, run wires, install and test. Check with several companies in your area and get several quotes. Check with Better Business Bureau for rating or complaints.
* With Smart ware being all the rage. It may be possible to use these "smart devices" to alert you to other situations besides just fire hazards. Break in, baby monitor, door ringer monitor, water (flooding), Carbon Monoxide, etc. But the alarm guy should be able to give you more options. Though I's still up to you how much you want to spend.
* Final; You check what the fire codes require. If they called you first then suspect a scam or a sales pitch to get you to buy something you don't require. You can always go with the 'stick on' alarms if that is allowed for your area. Call the fire Dept in your area. Those are the 'good guys' that want to keep you safe.

Smoke alarm went off None of the other smoke alarms went off just the 1 I have a CO alarm and that didnt go off either Smoke alarm has a green light on and a red light that flashes every 30 seconds

Most smoke alarms depend on a mirror and laser. If the one is question is near a bathroom, it probably went off after someone took a shower? The steam from the bathroom will fog the mirror and set it off. Same problem if it is near a source of cold air on a cold day with heat on in the house. If the problem is cold air from the attic, go to the attic and move the insulation. Seal the hole for the wires with canned foam like Great Stuff, and put the insulation back over it.

Wont stop beeping and saying fire, how do I stop it?

It sounds like you have a CO detector, or a combo smoke/CO detector. The alarm you are describing indicates that the unit is sensing carbon monoxide. If you are sure that none is present and the detector is mounted in a location suggested by the documentation, the detector is bad and should be replaced.

Why does alarm activate when there is no smell of smoke or fire not a battery operated unit 120v hard wired unit

The unit probably needs replacing (every 10 years by code for 120V smoke alarms; NFPA 72). Note that most 120V devices are of the ionization type and must be disposed of appropriately. The label on the under side of the device often has instructions. Also try searching for your model on the manufacturer's website.

Two of my smoke alarms went off (no fire/smoke in or near house), one has a green light blinking and one has a solid green light, which need a new battery/reset?

The constant green LED means the alarm has AC power.
A flashing green light every 2 seconds without an audible alert means the unit recently sounded ( was the one activated ) and is now in latching mode to let you know that it was the unit that detected the problem. To clear the latching mode hold down the test button for 5 seconds.
Red LED flashing once per minute means that the back-up battery is connected and functioning.
Red light flashing constantly during alarm means that it is the unit that initiated the alarm siren.

I have a Kidde combo CO / Gas monitor. The last two mornings at almost the same time (7:00 AM) the alarm sounded with the word GAS displayed. The condition went away in about 30 seconds each time and the...

Besides the obvious jokes about gas in the bathroom, I would advise you move it out of the bath room. It is being affected by excessive moisture causing errors in the sensors. The same can happen for smoke alarms with condensation or other moisture sources. It should be located relatively close to a possible source of problem, but not right on top of it.

Is the shower in use at around 7 am every AM?

One of the alarms is peeping every 30 seconds. Why and how do I stop it?

Normally this means the smoke detector's battery or batteries are getting weak and need to be replaced. Since your detector incorporates carbon monoxide detection it could also mean the sensor that measures CO is going bad. Most units with CO detection have a life expectancy of 8-10 years. If your unit is that old I would suggest replacing it. Hope this helps.

Alarms go off with humidity.too sensitive.Any

All smoke detectors, whether they are of the photo-electronic or ionization type, can false alarm due to steam. There are basically two solutions to your problem. Either move the detector further away from these areas (I have found keeping a smoke detector at least 6 feet away from the bathroom door normally works) or if that is not practical, after showering try to evacuate steam by either opening a window or turning on the exhaust fan for several minutes before opening the bathroom door.

sounds like a smoke detector to me. usually they just break the red or the green through a relay, if it smells smoke. could be dust burning off the heat strips first use, or you could get on the roof and find burned wires or motor. lots of old wires burning up with heat strips kicking in this time of year. i usually have em turn off alarm so fire dept wont come and turn to max heat and burn off the strips , measure amps, check wires, and all relays etc. you may have to bypass smoke detector till done. then return to correct "as found" wiring and reset alarms. hopefully no call backs. good luck.
