Replacing Smoke Alarm Systems Can Save Lives

Smoke alarms are great, but they have a limited lifespan. The Department of Fire and Emergency Services recommends replacing them every ten years. If you live in an older home, however, it may be even sooner. We can help you replace all types of smoke alarms by giving you a free quote and installing them for you.

5 Signs You Need to Replace Your Smoke Alarms

You may not realise it, but your smoke alarms may have seen better days. If you’ve had the same smoke alarms for more than ten years, it’s time to replace them! Here are five other telltale signs that you need to order a replacement ASAP:

Your Smoke Detector is Turning Yellow

Yellow smoke detectors signify that your alarm is getting old and needs replacing. New smoke alarms are so important because they come with new features like photoelectric smoke alarms, new sensors and casing. So when their colour starts to fade away, you know it’s time for a new one. The yellow colour indicates that the smoke detector has undergone hundreds of tests and that its lifespan is coming to an end.

It Chirps Almost All the Time

A smoke alarm constantly beeping is not something you should disregard. If you don’t do something about the endless chirping, you’ll become numb to it. This might result in you ignoring a smoke alarm sounding for a legitimate reason. When particular smoke detectors are nearing the end of their useful life, they may chirp repeatedly. By replacing the batteries in your smoke detector, you may be able to permanently silence the chirping. However, if you have new smoke alarm batteries in it or had it rewired by an electrician and it is still chirping, you should be very concerned.

It Doesn't Respond When You Test It

To test a smoke alarm, press the button on top of the unit and listen for a loud noise indicating that the battery is working. If you don’t hear anything, try changing the batteries and test again. If it still doesn’t work, consider replacing it with a new one.

It Goes Off for No Reason

Have you ever been woken up in the middle of the night by your smoke alarm? It’s not fun, we know! If a smoke alarm goes off when there is no fire, this is called a “nuisance” or “false” alarm. This can be caused by dust, steam, or other small particles getting into the detector and causing it to go off without a fire. It can also happen when the detectors in your system start to wear out and need to be replaced.

It Contains Faulty Parts That Led to a Recall

If you have a smoke alarm that has been recalled, you should replace it immediately. Recalled smoke alarms are dangerous and can cause severe injury or death. This is because they contain faulty parts that may not work in the event of an emergency.

When it comes to maintaining or installing smoke alarms in your home or business, hiring a local electrician is a necessity. However, finding and evaluating service providers in the area can be a daunting task. Our expertise and commitment to customer satisfaction is why you don’t need to look any further.

Highly recommend!! Had a couple of PowerPoints installed, one was a bit more complex, musty found a great solution and didn't take the easy way out. Musty went above and beyond and put me in touch with some other trades.

I was referred to Musty from a friend and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the service I received from the Blackout electrical team. Musty is very reliable, genuine and honest. He is also very knowledgeable across multiple areas of construction. No job was too big or too small for the team at Blackout and the quality of work they delivered was first class. I will gladly continue to use Musty and highly recommend. Keep up the great work, very thankful. Cheers Jacko

Definitely someone to recommend. I was able to send him photos to get the job quoted up. Musty responded quickly and came out the same day to make the necessary repairs. Was also able to help me out with recommendations for other jobs that I need done around the house and will be looking at having him return for another job once I’m ready. Very friendly and polite. Musty made my experience an easy one without having to chase him up constantly and very accurate with his quote.

Both of the gentlemen I dealt with were friendly and easy to deal with. They came when they said they would. Did a nice job and cleaned up after. I would be happy to use them again.

I recently hired Mustapha to mount my TV on the wall, and I couldn't be happier with the results. From start to finish, Mustapha was professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. He took the time to carefully assess the aluminium framed wall and determine the best placement for the TV, and then installed everything quickly and efficiently. Overall, I highly recommend Mustapha for anyone in need of electrical services.
