Smoke Detectors/ CO2 Detection Installation & Maintenance
Fires can happen at any time, but it is crucial to have a smoke alarm installed in your home. These devices will detect fires and wake up those who need attention most – even if you don’t smell the burning wood or fried electronics from across the room. A lot of people may not know this about sleep: when we nod off our sense of smell disappears too.
Hardwired smoke detectors are strongly recommended for all residential properties. The alarm is powered by mains and has a battery backup in case of power outage, making it safer than relying solely on batteries that can die quickly during an emergency situation such as fire. The iLux Electrical Services team help homeowners find solutions specific to their needs so they’re prepared should there ever be one! We also perform annual smoke detectors maintenance and inspections to ensure they are kept in optimum condition. This includes checking their ionization batteries as well, so you can sleep soundly knowing that your family is protected from any fire or carbon monoxide alarms.
Smoke Alarms Maintenance
Smoke alarms must be maintained. All smoke detectors in a home should have been checked at least once within ten years and updated more frequently depending on use. A fire can start from just one cigarette so it’s important you know how your particular type of alarm works for emergencies like these – we recommend regular cleaning with non-toxic cleaner or replacing any expired batteries as soon as possible after they’ve gone flat. We also do some other things while here such as testing them regularly against standards set out by the authorities.
Smoke alarms are a must-have in your home. But if there’s ever been an emergency and electricity is knocked out, you’ll want them hardwired with backup batteries so that they stay working even when the power goes down. Our qualified local electricians can show up at any time to make sure nothing gets left unchecked – we’re on call 24/7 365 days of year.
