Why Are Smoke Detectors So Important?
Smoke detectors are essential. When you’re fully asleep you are not aroused by smells. House fires can get fatally out of control very quickly. This is why you need smoke detectors. Smoke detectors work by warning of fire with a loud alarm as soon as smoke is detected. They’re hyper sensitive to smoke and we all know how loud and disruptive they can be when they go off when you burn the toast. This is a good thing because having an operational smoke detector could save your life. Smoke detectors are a legal requirement nationally. Mr Emergency is your one-stop-shop for smoke detector installation, service and repair.
Types Of Smoke Alarms
There are two main types of smoke detectors for home use:
- Ionization smoke detectors: Containing a very small amount of radioactive material, these smoke detectors can essentially ‘smell’ the particles emitted in a fire, which makes them better for detecting fast flames that don’t emit much visible smoke
- Photoelectric smoke detectors: These smoke detectors can essentially ‘see’ smoke before it bursts into flames by containing a photocell and light beam shining away from the cell. This makes them more effective for slow-burning or smouldering fires, often characteristic of house fires
Before you install smoke detectors in your home, you should seek advice on regulations and maintenance requirements. Our team of trusted electricians will ensure you have the correct smoke detector for your home, including the installation of light and vibrating pads to assist the hearing impaired. Your current detectors may be a bit out of date and need replacing with newer more reliable ones, or you want to add extra units in other rooms for added safety. No matter the reason, Mr Emergency can help. It’s imperative to have your smoke detectors serviced regularly to ensure the safety of your home.

By law, you should replace your smoke detectors every 10 years and have them serviced regularly, depending on the location and nature of your home.
