Smoke alarm installation is not a simple “screw it on and leave it” affair. The procedure involves following strict standards and regulations that are imposed by fire protection agencies in Australia.
Take location, as an example. You don’t put a single alarm in the living room or kitchen and practically ignore other parts of the house where a fire could break out. There is also a need to check the electrical systems of your house to ensure that your smoke alarms will be always supplied with power.
These factors and more are what Safe Fire & Electrical experts look into before installing smoke alarms in your home. First, we do a thorough inspection of your house to determine the best locations for the smoke alarms. Usually, the ideal places include all bedrooms and hallways. We do not install smoke alarms in ventilated areas, like near windows, fans, air conditioners or doorways, because air and wind can blow away smoke, making the smoke alarms ineffective in times of real fires.
Second, we determine which smoke alarms are best for your home. The most common smoke alarms that we have installed in Australian homes are photo electric smoke alarms which are best positioned on ceilings.
Third, part of our initial inspection prior to installation involves checking your main electrical systems. We not only ensure that any smoke alarm we hardwire with your electrical system will be guaranteed a steady supply of power, but we also check for and repair any damages or faulty wirings, which can result in fires in your home.
