The Importance Of Wired Alarms Vs Battery Alarms
Wired-in and interlinked smoke, heat, and carbon monoxide alarms provide several critical advantages over stand-alone, battery-powered units:
Wired-in alarms are connected to your home’s electrical system, meaning they don’t rely on batteries that can fail or run out. Many wired-in systems also include a battery backup in case of a power cut.
If one alarm in the system detects a threat, all the alarms are activated. This ensures everyone in the building gets the warning, even if the source of the danger is far from where they are, such as a fire downstairs while you are upstairs sleeping.
This is especially useful in larger homes or buildings where a fire or carbon monoxide leak in one area might not immediately trigger a stand-alone alarm in another area.
Having smoke, heat, and carbon monoxide detection in one system provides a complete safety solution.
Each type of alarm is designed to detect different threats. Smoke alarms are good at detecting smouldering fires, heat alarms are best for high heat or flash fires, and carbon monoxide alarms are necessary for detecting this deadly, odourless gas.
New build homes and rented properties require hard-wired and interlinked alarms. Professional installation ensures compliance with regulations.
The Types Of Alarms And Their Differences
Each type of alarm is designed to detect different dangers, providing complete safety coverage when used together.
Smoke Alarms detect the presence of smoke particles often produced in fires, giving an early warning for smouldering or flaming fires.
Heat Alarms sense a rapid increase in temperature or a heat level that exceeds a preset threshold, making them ideal for areas prone to rapid, high-heat fires. They’re less prone to false alarms from cooking or high humidity.
Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Carbon Monoxide Alarms detect carbon monoxide, a colourless, odourless, and poisonous gas produced from incomplete combustion in appliances like boilers or fireplaces.
