QUINCY, Mass.--Builders who offer fire sprinklers as a standard feature are seen by homeowners as being "safety concerned, innovative and caring," according to a survey commissioned by the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition in December. The results of the survey, released in March, also said that 69 percent of the 1,019 U.S. homeowners surveyed said they believed having a fire sprinkler system increases the value of a home.
