Smoke Alarms

Every year the fire and rescue service is called to over 600,000 fires in the UK which result in over 800 deaths and over 17,000 injuries. About 50,000 (140 a day) of these are in the home and kill nearly 500 and injure over 11,000, many which could have been prevented if people had an early warning and were able to get out in time. In fact you are twice as likely to die in a house fire that has no smoke alarm than a house that does.
Buying a smoke alarm could help save your home and the lives of you and your family.

 In a standard smoke alarm, the battery will need to be replaced every 12 months. You can buy alarms fitted with sealed 10 year batteries. The advantage is that you don’t have to replace the battery every year.
Mains-powered alarms have to be installed in all new buildings and after a major refurb. Make sure that the chosen mains powered alarm has a battery back-up. These can be alkaline batteries (need annual changing) or the alarm can be supplied with re-chargeable lithium batteries, which will last the lifetime of the alarm. Mains alarms need to be installed by a qualified electrician.
Some people find their alarms are frequently set off when they are cooking or when the toast burns. An alarm installed inside the kitchen must be a heat alarm rather than a smoke alarm. Just outside a kitchen (eg in hall or dining room) an optical smoke alarm or, even better, a combined smoke and heat alarm should be installed, as these are less sensitive to false alarm.

Which smoke alarm should I choose?

The general rule is quite easy
Kitchen and Garage: Heat Alarms
Landings: Ionisation smoke alarms or combined optical smoke and heat alarms
Bedrooms, living rooms and hallway: Optical smoke alarms or combined optical smoke and heat alarms
  
  
  
When should you install a Co2 detector in your home?
Does everyone need a carbon monoxide detector?
What kind of appliances can cause carbon monoxide poisoning?

When you are burning indoors any type of liquid or solid fuel for heating, cooking or other use, you should have an active carbon monoxide detector installed in your home.

If you have fuel-burning appliances on more than one level of your home, you should have a carbon monoxide detector on each floor. For example, if you have a gas range on the main floor and a wood-burning fireplace on the lower level, you should have detectors on each of these floors.

Such fuel-burning appliances are generally tested and safe to use, but should there be a clogged vent line or any part of the appliance that becomes faulty, it could release hazardous levels of carbon monoxide in your home and death can occur within minutes. But you can keep your family safe by using a carbon monoxide detector which can alert you to the presence of this silent toxic gas.

Types of Fuel-Burning Appliances:

·   Any type of oil heating appliances such as a space heater,               boiler, furnace or fireplace
·   Any wood or wood-burning product such as a woodstove, heat     stove, fireplace, wood-pellet stove, box or parlor stove
·   Any oil, propane or natural gas furnace, cooking stove or range,     refrigerator, hot water heater, other appliance or fireplace
·   Any products using gas or diesel fuel such as generators (which     should only be used outdoors).
·   Any bio, agricultural or other fuel-burning types of heating             stove.

About Carbon Monoxide:

Carbon monoxide is a gas that is present in the air, but it's the incidence of high levels that can make this gas deadly. This poisonous gas is odorless, colorless and tasteless. Its presence can only be detected with a working carbon monoxide detector. Detectors are available in battery form or hard-wired models. There are also duel models which can detect smoke or carbon monoxide.

At EFS Electrical Ltd we only install Aico Smoke, Heat & Co2 Detectors, Although there are many other brands & manufacturers on the market we find the use of the Aico Detction units very reliable and comfortable to install, also the units are equally easy for the consumer to replace upon expiary due to the easy removal clip from the base which leaves all the wiring in tackt, the new unit then just slides on to the easy fit base.
