Why Should I Upgrade My Smoke Alarms?

Older homes more often than not have ionisation smoke alarms installed; these are usually not interconnected and past their replacement date. The main concern with ionisation alarms is the time it takes them to detect smouldering fires. In tests, ionisation alarms on average responded 15-50 MINUTES SLOWER than photoelectric alarms. When you hire a smoke alarm installation expert from Sorted Electrical you will only get the best quality photoelectric alarms installed, offering peace-of-mind for your family.

Have you had problems with your smoke alarms being triggered for no reason or constantly beeping? This is a sign that your alarms are not working correctly. When new photoelectric smoke alarms are installed, you won’t get nuisance warnings or beeping. They provide early detection and are less prone to be triggered by cooking or steam from the bathroom. Sorted Electrical offer competitive prices and great value with our smoke alarm installation services – need Smoke Alarm upgrade for a house in Cannon Hill, Tingalpa or Chandler? Call us for a no-obligation quote. 

Photoelectric smoke alarms have been the only type recommended by Australian Fire Authorities, Fire Brigades and the International Association of Fire Fighters. A global campaign is now calling for a total ban of ionisation alarms. A wireless smoke alarm upgrade is a great way to get your alarms to standard in homes that don’t have access to run cables or need additional alarms installed in bedrooms. At Sorted Electrical, our smoke alarm installation services cover a range of wireless options.

Where Should Smoke Alarms Be Installed in Your Brisbane House?

Smoke alarms need to be installed in accordance to the 2022 QLD regulations. You can not just go and purchase wireless alarms and install them throughout your home. All alarms need to be certain distances from walls, A/C outlets, ceiling fans and lights. All Bedrooms require an interconnected alarm, every level of a home needs at least one alarm and within certain distances of bedrooms alarms need to be installed. Please give us a call to check your floor plan and advise on number of alarms required to be compliant and safe.

What Type of Smoke Alarm Is In My Home?

It should be clearly stated on each smoke detectors label whether it is ionisation or photoelectric smoke alarm. However, if it is not clearly stated, you will see a bright yellow ‘radiation’ symbol inside or on the back of an ionisation alarm.

If you see this symbol, then it’s a good sign that you should have a smoke alarm inspection and also check that all your bedrooms and living spaces have a detector in place. If you are looking for a smoke alarm installation expert , give us a Call at Sorted Electrical.

FAQs

Since 1 January 1995, smoke alarms have been required in all new homes in South Australia.

Yes some smoke alarms can detect carbon monoxide.

Yes. Because smoking and vaping is not limited to tobacco products, modern smoke and vape detectors can also pick up the presence of THC vapor or marijuana smoke. The detection process is the same (Vape Index).

Smoke alarms will make a ‘beep’ or ‘chirping‘ sound when they have a low battery or are faulty. … All smoke Alarms also have a red light that flashes momentarily every 40-60 seconds to visually indicate they are operating. This same red light flashes continuously when the Smoke Alarm has been activated.

Install smoke alarms inside each bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement

Every 10 years or when not operating correctly.

Average cost for a quality smoke alarm supplied and installed is between $135 and $185 per alarm. You may find cheaper prices but be wary of low-quality alarms.  

Photoelectric smoke alarms tend to respond faster to the smoke produced by smoldering fires than ionization smoke alarms. It is a legal requirement to only install Photoelectric alarms in QLD. 

Interconnected alarms are safer and are required under new legislation.

Interconnected smoke alarms are safer than standalone smoke alarms, because they let you know about a fire/smoke faster. Even if you’re in the house, you may not be close to the area where the fire started. If you’re in the basement, you may not hear an alarm in the bedroom. If a fire starts in a bedroom that does not have an alarm, it could take several minutes for the smoke to reach the next closest alarm. By then it could be too late. If an interconnected alarm was in the bedroom, it would alert straight away and trigger the other alarms in the house. This is why having interconnected smoke alarms in bedrooms is so important.
