Check the side of the smoke alarm and see if there is a date. This is the expiration date of the smoke alarm. It could be chirping because it's too old.
I had to replace mine a couple years back because one of them was chirping. I discovered the one that was chirping was expired and the others were close so I ended up replacing all of them.

Mine are Kidde and I simply bought the same brand. I also didn't feel like replacing the mounting bracket in the ceiling and took a chance that the new Kidde alarms used the same mounting bracket and they did. I also recall an adapter that came with the smoke alarm but I didn't need to use it because I was able to use the existing ones as well.
