The Different Types of Smoke Alarm

A smoke alarm could help save your home and your life. Test your fire alarm weekly and never remove the batteries.

There are two main types of smoke detectors: ionization detectors and photoelectric detectors. A smoke alarm uses one or both methods, sometimes plus a heat detector, to warn of a fire. The devices may be powered by a 9-volt battery, lithium battery, or 120-volt house wiring.

All of the smoke alarms and fire alarm systems that we install meet all industry standards and are fully tested and maintained to make sure that everything is in full working order. Contact our smoke alarm installation team today for a free no-obligation quote.

Which Smoke Alarm Do I Need?

If your home is on one level – a flat or bungalow – you need to fit at least one smoke alarm. If your home has more than one level, you’ll need one on each floor. If you have more than one alarm, they should be linked up to each other.

In homes with more than one level, fit alarms in the downstairs hallway and on every stair landing. For extra safety, fit smoke alarms in the bedrooms too – this can help protect you while you sleep. Contact our smoke alarm installers for more information.

Where Should My Smoke Alarm Be Installed?

The best place for a smoke alarm is on the ceiling. Try and keep them 30cm (12 inches) away from any walls, lights, doors, heating or air-conditioning vents. Test the alarm to make sure you can hear it loud and clear from every room in the house – even with the doors closed. If you can’t hear it, move it or fit more alarms.

Ideally, you want to have an alarm within 7 metres (22 feet) of the living room door and 3 metres (9 feet) of a bedroom door. If you need help installing your smoke alarm, please don’t hesitate to contact our smoke alarm installers today.
