Smoke Alarm Installation, Testing & Maintenance Northern Suburbs

In the past smoke alarms were not always as effective as they are today. Smoke alarms function as fire and smoke sensors. They are designed to notify you of smoke or fire in your home or building to allow you time to escape danger.

Smoke Alarm Inspections & Installation in the Northern Suburbs

Smoke alarms are an essential security feature for any home or business. They warn you about fire or smoke, and then sound an alarm to ensure you can stay away from danger. They must also be regularly checked by a qualified electrician to ensure they’re all in operating condition!

A smoke alarm should be checked to ensure that it was installed in compliance with the relevant regulations and codes. Installation on hard-wired smoke alarms must be completed by a licensed electrician, and an inspection must be completed prior to switching it on.

Smoke alarms should also be checked to ensure that they function properly. This can be accomplished by testing and performing regular maintenance. Maintenance could include replacing the batteries and cleaning up debris and dust by using a vacuum.

Where should you put your smoke detectors?

Smoke detector alarms should be installed in bedrooms so that sleeping persons are provided with an alarm when there is danger. However, there are different areas in the home that require protection as well, including hallways, kitchens and living areas (in other words, any place where there is a risk of flames or smoke forming).

Do electricians need to be engaged to install Smoke Alarms?

A licensed electrician must connect or unplug your smoke alarm when it’s connected to the mains power source. Smoke alarms don’t always get power from the mains , and could be powered by batteries in certain instances. If this is the case you might not need an electrician to install it however the best method to prevent future issues is to consult an electrician.

Smoke alarms that ionize tend to respond quicker to smoke created by burning fires over photoelectric alarms. Photoelectric smoke alarms typically respond quicker when the smoke that is produced by fires that are smoldering than smoke alarms with ionization.

If your smoke alarm is constantly beeping, it could mean your battery might need to be replaced. A smoke alarm is likely to chirp every 30-60 seconds for seven days, you might also hear a “low battery” message. If your smoke alarm is consistently beeping, and there is no smoke, contact an electrician to ensure your home stays protected.

NOTE: You should speak to or engage a qualified electrician to carry out any work on your smoke alarm, to ensure you’ve got the appropriate protection. It is generally recommended that:

Once a month Smoke alarm test buttons should be pushed to make sure the alarm sounds and the battery is functioning properly.

6 monthly: Clean your smoke alarm with a vacuum cleaner. This removes debris or dust that may have built up and could stop the smoke alarm from functioning properly in an emergency.

Yearly: If your smoke alarm is powered by a battery, it is recommended that you swap it with a new one every year.

Every 10 years: All kinds of smoke alarms should be replaced with a new smoke alarm at least every 10 years. They are not designed to last forever, and their sensitivity usually decreases the older they get.
