Fire Alarm Installers Stirling Installation Process
The new interlinked system consists of several alarms placed around multiple areas of the home. First off, there will be a fire alarm placed on the ceiling of the main room of your home. This should be the room you spend most of your day within, which is usually the living room. Another alarm should also be placed on the ceiling of each circulation area of the property. There must be an alarm on each storey, meaning that if your home is three storeys, you will need an additional alarm. A heat alarm must also be present in the kitchen.
To put this into perspective, if you live within a two-storey, four-bedroom home, you will require three smoke alarms and one heat alarm. One alarm is placed in your main room, one in your downstairs hallway/landing area, and the other in your upstairs landing area. The criteria differs for all types of households. For example, if your downstairs kitchen and living room are combined, a heat alarm in the conjoined space will suffice. Not to worry though, the Titus Fire and Security team will take the alarm placement options onboard, meaning that you do not have to worry!
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Carbon monoxide detectors are also required under the new regulations, although they may not be needed for all properties. If you have a carbon-fuelled appliance however, then this device applies to you. Carbon monoxide gas can be extremely lethal, especially in large doses. Known as the silent killer, the gas has no taste or scent. There has been an estimated total of around 60 deaths per year within the UK that were linked to carbon monoxide poisoning. Usually, this occurs while the individual is sleeping. These fatalities highlight the importance of the detector.
