Smoke Alarm Installation gives you Peace of Mind
Install Smoke Alarms...they may save your life!
Installing smoke alarms saves lives. It’s that simple. But smoke alarms are only of benefit if they are installed properly, well maintained, and you get the right smoke alarm for the job in the first place. Many people aren’t aware that when you sleep, you lose your sense of smell, so you will not be woken by the presence of smoke. This is why smoke alarms are so important. At night when your family is sleeping, they are the only reliable indication you have that there is a fire in your home.
Which Type of smoke alarm should you get installed?
Not all homes are the same, and not all smoke alarms are the same. There are two main types of smoke alarms, and they respond differently depending on the situation. Some are better for fast burning fires while others are better for slow, smouldering fires. We can recommend the best option for your home or business. Smoke alarms need correct installation in the home to work effectively. There are many ‘dead air’ spaces in every home where smoke will be slow to travel to. Proper placement of smoke alarms is essential for quick activation in the event of a fire.
Hard Wiring Helps. We strongly recommend that all homes install hard wired smoke detectors – and in fact they are mandatory for all new homes. A hard wired smoke detector draws power from the mains so it is always on, and has a battery backup to protect your home during a blackout. This is much safer than battery-only smoke alarms where the battery is the only source of power. Hard wired smoke alarms can also be wired together so that if one alarm detects a fire, all of the alarms will sound at the same time. This ensures that everyone in every corner of the home is alerted before the fire has time to spread.
