Daylight saving time starts on Sunday

Daylight saving time starts this weekend, which means the clocks will spring ahead one hour. 

It officially kicks off at 2 a.m. on Sunday in the parts of Canada and the United States that observe it. 

It's also a good idea to replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms when the time changes. 

Companies that make the alarms say the average smoke alarm should be replaced every 10 years, while carbon monoxide alarms can last between seven and 10 years.

It's also a good idea to make sure you have alarms on multiple levels of your home. 

Daylight saving time runs until 2 a.m. on the first Sunday in November.
