Smoke Alarms Save Lives

The safety and security of your family is one of the most important factors to think about when you are building or renovating your home. Protecting your family against fire is a priority, and wrongly installed smoke detectors or not having them at all poses serious risk.

When smoke detectors are installed into your home, they must be placed in the most beneficial positions throughout your home to meet particular standards, and to work most effectively. Since 1 October 2009, in Western Australia, mains powered smoke alarms are required to be fitted in all residential buildings, and fines of up to $5000 can be given for failure to comply.

Where Should Smoke Alarms be Installed?

It is also important to know where and how many smoke detectors should be installed into your home. Small houses, or units may only need one smoke detector however for the average sized home requires at least two hard wired smoke alarms installed, and multilevel houses or apartments require smoke alarms to be fitted on each level. The most common hard-wired smoke alarms currently being installed are photoelectric smoke alarms, and your electrical specialists at Pascoe’s Gas, Water & Electrical have a wide range of alarms to meet your home’s specifications, and can supply and install 7 days a week.
