Smoke and Heat Alarms

Government statistics show that people are four times more likely to die in a house fire if there is not a working smoke or heat alarm. Most of us recognise the importance of fire alarms to protect ourselves, our homes and our belongings.

Smoke alarms are critical for the early detection of a fire in your home and could mean the difference between life and death.
Most fires at home start accidentally. The main causes are cooking, a dropped cigarette or faulty electrics.
They can start in any room of your home.

Early warning saves lives

But no matter where or how, having a smoke or heat alarm is the first step towards securing your family’s safety.
The warning sound given off when smoke or heat is detected gives you the crucial time you need to safely evacuate and get help. A modest investment in an alarm will ensure your family and home are protected.

Important information

The most commonly used smoke and heat alarms in domestic properties are mains powered alarms. They require a constant 230v supply but also have a battery backup. The supply can come from a designated circuit or a nearby lighting circuit.

Mains powered smoke and heat alarms should always be installed by a qualified electrician. This guarantees that your alarm installation functions correctly and provides effective protection.

Legislation for Landlords

Legislation came into force in October 2015 for private landlords in England regarding smoke, heat and Carbon Monoxide alarms.

The regulations require:

• At least one smoke alarm installed on every storey of their properties.

• A carbon monoxide alarm in any room containing a solid fuel burning appliance (eg a coal fire or wood-burning stove).

• That the landlord ensures the alarms are in working order at the start of each new tenancy.
