Welcome to TM Hughes & Son Electrical Services Ltd. We have a team of NICEIC-registered Electricians who install Smoke, Heat & Carbon Monoxide Alarms in Wickford.
Smoke, Heat and Carbon Monoxide Alarms play different roles. All are important for protecting a home and its occupants.
- Smoke Alarm: A smoke alarm is designed to sense smoke, typically indicating fire. These alarms can detect either larger smoke particles from slow, smouldering fires or smaller particles from fast, flaming fires, depending on the type of sensor used. They provide an early warning, potentially saving lives and minimising property damage. Regular maintenance and testing are essential to ensure their effectiveness. Installing smoke alarms in bedrooms, living rooms, and hallways is recommended.
- Heat Alarm: A heat alarm responds to changes in temperature rather than detecting smoke. They activate when a specific temperature is reached, or a rapid temperature increase occurs. Ideal for kitchens, garages, or other areas prone to false alarms from smoke detectors. Heat alarms should not replace smoke alarms but can be used in conjunction to cover different types of fire scenarios.
- Carbon Monoxide Alarm: A carbon monoxide alarm is a safety device designed to detect the presence of carbon monoxide (CO), a dangerous, colourless, and odourless gas generated from sources like faulty heating appliances or blocked chimneys. CO can be deadly when inhaled. The alarm monitors the air for increased levels of CO and sounds an alert if hazardous levels are detected, offering essential protection against CO poisoning. Installing these alarms near bedrooms and fuel-burning appliances is advisable for maximum safety.
The Benefits Of Professional Installation
Professional installation and interlinking of safety alarms by our certified Electricians ensure that these devices are not just fitted properly but are optimally positioned according to the unique layout and needs of the building.
The interlinking process enables a network wherein, if one alarm is triggered, all interconnected alarms sound off, alerting everyone in the property.
Hard wiring is a method of installation in which devices are directly connected to a property’s electrical system, providing a consistent, uninterrupted power source.
Hard-wired alarms eliminate the risk of battery failure and ensure these life-saving devices are always working.
