    My Smoke Alarms Are Quite Old Now?

    Manufacturers of smoke alarms suggest replacing older than 10-year old smoke alarms every 5 years. The main reason is that as they age, the likelihood of them reacting to other variables increases, and your device may malfunction or perform inconsistently. Often we forget that we have a battery-powered device in our home until it’s gone and gone for good!

    Do Smoke Alarms Need To Be Hardwired Adelaide?

    Yes, for buildings in Adelaide smoke alarms must be either hard-wired to the mains electric supply, or use a non-grouped 9 Volt battery.

    Smoke alarms installed in these buildings must be either hard-wired to the mains electric supply or use a non-grouped 9 Volt battery. With regard to the latter, this particular type of battery is specifically designed for individual occupancy and will set off an alarm if it detects high levels of smoke based on prior calibration. The only time when they won’t work is when they are too far away from where the fire broke out (due to signal interference), but that should not happen with close proximity installations.

    Which is better hard-wired or battery smoke detectors?

    Hardwired smoke alarms are more dependable as they are connected to a power supply, so when there is no power they will still work. Battery-powered versions may not detect fire in this situation, but battery versions can be used in bedrooms that lack electric sockets.

    1. Why smoke alarms are important?

    Smoke alarms give you and your family the protection and peace of mind that comes with knowing they can be woken up in an emergency. Smoke is dangerous, even at low levels, because it’s toxic.

    2. How to install a basic model?

    Smoke alarms come with a set of installation instructions. For your basic model, you need to make sure it’s installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations and place where it won’t be easily covered up by furniture or drapery.

    3. What do the different types of alarms do and when they should be used?
    • Heat detectors should be used in areas where fires may start (such as cooking) because it detects high temperatures before the smoke stage is reached. They do not sense combustion gases like carbon monoxide, so they’re best suited for places that have a potential for fires.
    • Ionisation smoke alarms are designed to detect the small particles of combustion that come from a fire before it reaches the visible stage and can be used in kitchens, garages, or other places where there might be a risk of an early start fire. They’re also great at detecting slow smoldering fires as they can sense these small particles before they’ve had a chance to build up.
    • Photoelectric smoke alarms are most suited for use in large open spaces because the sensor is designed to detect larger, more easily seen fire particles that come from flaming fires or those with visible flames. This means this type of detector works better in areas where it can detect the smoke before it reaches a dangerous level.
    • Dual sensors (photoelectric smoke alarms and ionisation smoke alarms) or combination detectors are designed to detect both slow smoldering fires as well as flaming fires by using two different types of sensors in one device: photoelectric for detecting visible fire particles and ionisation for detecting small, invisible combustion particles that come from a fire before it reaches the visible stage.
    4. When you should change your alarm battery?

    Smoke alarm batteries should be changed when the alarm starts to fail to respond or you start hearing it chirp. If your smoke detector is powered by a non-rechargeable battery, then this usually means that the life of the unit has come to an end and will need replacement.

    4. When you should change your alarm battery?

    Smoke detectors work best in a system and by working together the alarm will sound at every detector. This gives you maximum protection which is why we recommend hard-wired smoke alarms to ensure that every unit works even when there’s no power because it takes less than an hour for each one of our electricians to install them properly so you can be sure that they are working.
