Smoke Alarms FAQs
How much does smoke alarm fitting cost?
The cost of smoke alarm fitting will depend on your property, but uur standard package includes x2 smoke alarms x1 heat detector at £235. It is cheaper if you purchase smoke alarm fitting along with other services as a bundle
How long do smoke alarms last before needing replacement?
At Energy Cert Scotland we recommend that smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years. This is because the sensors in the smoke alarms become less sensitive and may not activate when a fire is present.
Do I need an ionisation smoke alarm or an optical (photoelectrical) smoke alarm?
Ionisation smoke alarms detect fast flaming fires and are suitable for landings. Optical smoke alarms detect slow smouldering fires typical for burning soft furnishings. Optical alarms are suitable for living rooms and sleeping areas and are used near kitchens as they are less prone to false alarms. Please note that ionisation alarms contain a small amount of radioactivity.
Do you need an electrician to connect mains powered smoke alarms?
It is necessary that an electrician installs mains powered smoke alarms.
