Looking For An Electrician for Smoke Alarm Installations In Springfield Lakes?
Smoke Alarm Installation Specialists In Springfield Lakes
Does your home have an operational smoke alarm? It’s strongly recommended that all homes have a smoke alarm installed and operational. This is never more true than in Springfield Lakes, where proximity to bushland means fire is an ever-present risk.
Changes in the Queensland law governing smoke alarms means that all Springfield Lakes residents will need to upgrade their smoke alarms – or install new ones– before 2027. Here’s why.
What’s changing with smoke alarm regulations?
Due to a concerning number of fire-related deaths because of non-functional smoke alarms – or no smoke alarms at all – changes to Queensland law were introduced in 2017. As of 1 January 2017, all smoke alarms more than ten years old must be replaced with new-style photoelectric alarms.
In addition, by 2027, interconnected photoelectric alarms must be installed in every bedroom, hallways linking bedrooms, egress path and on each level of your house.
What’s a photoelectric smoke detector?
Unlike ionisation smoke alarms, which detect small smoke particles, photoelectric smoke alarms are activated when particles enter a light chamber. Photoelectric smoke alarms not only provide better protection, they also don’t go off by mistake (as long as they’re properly installed) and can be mains powered – so no more nuisance alarms or forgetting to change the battery.
