    Do I need a new fire alarm?

    It’s recommended that every home should have at least one working smoke alarm on each level of the house. The Fire Service recommends that smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years. So, if your fire alarm has been in place for a few years, or you don’t have enough alarms to cover your entire home, it may be time to install one or more new ones.

    Detecting a house fire in its early stages is important, but your smoke alarm needs to be located in the right place to detect the fire and alert you in time. We can help you to think about where to position your fire alarms to maximise that early warning. Good positions include:

    • Hallways, stairwells and landings
    • Close to sleeping areas
    • Near electrical equipment or anything else that could be a fire hazard

    Why choose a mains powered fire alarm?

    It’s possible to buy both battery-powered smoke alarms and hard-wired alarms that connect to your mains electricity. Mains powered fire alarms have several advantages:

    • No battery failure. Your alarm will keep working as long as your mains power is turned on
    • Longer life. Hard-wired smoke detectors tend to last longer and work more reliably than battery-powered alarms
    • Wakes you faster. You can connect all of your mains-powered alarms together, so that as soon as one alarm is triggered, the others will sound. This means you’ll be woken by your upstairs fire alarm as soon as your downstairs unit detects a fire starting in the kitchen
