17 May Smoke Detectors
Let’s talk about smoke detectors.
Buying the best smoke alarm can make all the difference in a life and death situation.
Being caught in a house fire is almost too frightening to think about. But sadly, firefighters have to fight thousands of building fires every year. To escape a house fire, early warning is vital. That’s why every home in Australia needs a smoke alarm. The choice can be confusing.
But with several different types of alarms out there, it can be confusing to know which one you need in your house. That’s why it’s a good idea to consult a professional to help you to understand what you need to install one in your home. You want the right one. The best one. For after all, this is your home, your sanctuary and you want it to be safe for you and your loved ones.
What to look for in a smoke alarm – Standards Australia certification or ActivFire registration is what you need to primarily look for. This ensures the alarm complies with the Australian Standard for smoke alarms, AS 3786, as required by law. Some models come with a pre-installed non-removable 10-year battery, typically a lithium battery, which will last for the life of the smoke alarm. This means you don’t need to remember to change the battery each year.
