Description

If you have a TV or other large electrical appliance in your bedroom, you should fit a smoke alarm there. Looking after your smoke alarm Ten-year sealed battery smoke alarms are the best option. They are slightly more expensive, but you save on the cost of replacing batteries. Make sure you, and everyone in your home, know the fire plan for your building and where fire alarms and fire exits are. As with all buildings, you should plan and practise an escape route.

All of the major manufacturers (Aico, FireAngel and Kidde) make smoke and heat alarms that will work in combination with one another and we have tested pairs of smoke and heat alarms from each of them. Find the alarm with the red light rapidly flashing. Press its ‘Hush’ button to silence. If that does not silence it, clean the alarm using a vacuum. Wait for 10 minutes and the issue should be resolved.

It’s crucial not to ignore this signal, as it indicates that the smoke detector may not function optimally in detecting smoke or fire. Unsure how many alarms to install in your home? Ready our blog to find out exactly how many smoke alarms you should install in your home and where to fit them. Most smoke alarms now have hush buttons, for use where false alarms can be a nuisance e.g. when cooking. The alarm lets you know it’s been silenced by “chirping” or by displaying a red light – while a real fire producing lots of smoke will set it off anyway. Another helpful technology is the ‘Sleep-Easy Function’ which allows you to silence the alarm if a low battery beep starts in the middle of the night. Many smoke detectors use an LED light to show you that everything’s working properly. If your device’s on/off button has a stale red light, it likely means the system is working properly. Some detectors will even use a light that flashes periodically to tell you they’re working. Dust and dirt is clogging the smoke detector

Generally, a solid green light on your smoke detector means that it’s working properly. If the green light goes off, you know that there’s no power going to the system. As mentioned, a solid green light can also mean that your detector has finished its power upcycle. Chirping noises every 20 or 30 seconds As a rule of thumb, it’s best to use optical alarms in living rooms, bedrooms or downstairs hallways where you either have a lot of upholstered furniture and soft furnishings or the alarm is likely to be set off by cooking fumes. Keep ionisation alarms for upstairs hallways or areas where dust or exposure to the elements (say, through an open door) might potentially set off an optical sensor. If in doubt, go optical or use a multi-sensor alarm. Use of ionisation alarms is generally being discouraged by many fire services, and some manufacturers have now discontinued their ionisation products. 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. Interpretation: Some smoke detectors are equipped with an end-of-life indicator, which uses a red light to signify that the device has reached the end of its operational lifespan. Scenario 1: Sarah woke up one morning to find her smoke detector emitting a steady red light. Remembering the importance of maintaining the device, she immediately replaced the batteries.Some hard-wired detectors also use a flashing green LED light as part of an alternating current (AC) power upcycle. Whenever your home recovers from a power outage, a green light on the detector will flash periodically to indicate that the device is gathering energy from a power source (your home). The LED indicator will stop flashing and become a steady green once the detector has enough power. Solid green light on smoke detector Heat (thermal) alarms detect heat (hot air) instead of smoke. The alarm is triggered when the temperature within the sensor chamber reaches over 58 degrees Celsius – generally when a fire is well established. First Alert SA320CN: The red light on this model indicates that the smoke detector is receiving power and functioning properly. If the red light blinks or flashes every few minutes, it suggests that the battery is low and needs replacement.
