Although they usually need to be changed every ten years, it is important to ensure that the device is fully functioning. When carbon monoxide gas is consumed in large doses it can be highly detrimental to your health.

Follow the New Rules

It is the property owner’s responsibility to meet the new standards. The law came into force on the 1st of February 2022. If you do not yet have the new system installed after this date, try to have the alarm system fitted within a reasonable period after this date. Although there are no penalties for not complying with the new law, you are only imposing a higher risk to your household. The new system alerts everyone within the property of fire occurrence sooner. No matter where you may be within the property, you are always likely to hear the alarm sound during a fire breakout. Fire outbreaks can happen to any building at any time. Sometimes, the fire breakout is completely out of your control, with no way of knowing how it could have started. 

Regularly Check Alarms

Safety doesn’t stop after the installation process. It is vital to regularly check your alarm systems. You can do so by carefully lighting a match and holding it under the device to confirm how well it is functioning. It is also important to check information on the alarm system. For example, how long it lasts with lithium batteries before they need to be changed.
