Smoke Alarms

Many homes have hard-wired smoke alarms installed in there homes... and many more have alarms that have passed their "sell-by" date! Yes, that's right! Smoke Alarms have a shelf life, and it's 10 years!! 

Your Local Electrician, Rich Speller from Speller's Sparks, is often called out to complete smaller jobs, on one occasion I was asked to fix and replace a faulty smoke alarm, however, after taking down the faulty one and looking for any issues it became apparent that not only did this one need replacing, but they all did! On every hard-wired electrical alarm you will see that there is a date, sometimes on the outside of the alarm (this is good as you don't need to remove them from the wall), but often they are on the underside of the alarm and in which case you will need to take it down and check. If you've not done this recently, and maybe never have, I'd recommend you stop reading this and do this NOW... while you're there check that they are functional by pressing the 'Test' button! Hardwired alarms should all sound together when the test but is pressed, this is because they are interconnected, just another great feature of Hard Wired Alarms. 

I like to install the Aico brand of alarms, this is the one you can see in the video, you can also get more info here in my BLOG. One great feature of these is that they don't have a 9V battery that needs replacing, as they have an internal battery that is charged from the mains. So, the advantage of this is? The advantage is if there was a power-cut the alarms would still sound! I think you'll agree that this is a great way to keep your family safe!
