Smoke alarms

Smoke alarms are crucial for every household. Each year, the Fire and Rescue Service visit over 600,000 fires which result in over 800 deaths. These incidents could be prevented by getting smoke alarms placed in every house or business premises.

Smoke alarms are self-contained devices that detect a fire and sound an alarm. They should be fitted to the ceiling, although in certain properties you might see them fitted towards the top of a wall. They can detect fires in their early stages, giving you time to react to a fire.

You will find various varieties of smoke alarms and they can be battery-powered or wired up to the mains electricity. Alarms that are powered by the mains are thought to be safer as you don’t have to be concerned about replacing the batteries when they run out. Providing you don’t have a power cut, the smoke alarm should detect fires and keep you and your family safe.

An electrician will help you install a smoke alarm and connect it to your mains power. Just fill in our online form and we’ll put you in contact with as much as 4 electricians who're certified to offer you a competitive quote.
