What is a Smoke Alarm?

Smoke alarms are required in every home in Australia by law to protect occupants from death or injury due to smoke inhalation or catastrophic fire, but there are so many things to consider, it’s no wonder the subject is so confusing.

Basically, two types of smoke alarms are commonly available, being Photoelectric and Ionisation alarms, other special purpose alarms are also sometimes used such as carbon monoxide alarms where gas combustion or an open hearth fire might introduce harmful fumes to the living space.

The main difference between Photoelectric and Ionisation alarms is that Photoelectric alarms can sense smoke from a smouldering fire, enabling early arousal of occupants and allow time to control the fire or escape if necessary, but they are poorly equipped to sense a well-established, flaming fire.

Ionisation alarms by contrast can identify the presence of a flaming fire effectively but they are less able to provide early warning of a smouldering fire or impending breathing or visibility difficulties caused by heavy smoke. Some alarms combine both types of sensing, however, ionisation sensors can be triggered by vapours produced by cooking or by steam so their location should be suitably distanced from the bathroom or kitchen or other location where food is cooked.

Other types of smoke alarms might include heat sensing alarms, particularly suitable to fires in the kitchen where cooking oil might catch fire or from other inadvertent ignition sources, however, fires of this origin are more likely to be noticed immediately ignition takes place and easier to control.

Smoke Alarm Installation Guide

In addition to the minimum requirement of one smoke alarm per level, Fire & Rescue NSW research recommends installing smoke alarms in all bedrooms and living spaces (including hallways and stairways) and even the garage.

Avoid fitting smoke alarms in or near your kitchen or bathroom.

The ideal position is on the ceiling between sleeping and living areas.

How can we help with your Smoke Alarm?

Smoke alarms are usually quite inexpensive and readily available from many outlets. The least expensive types require regular battery replacement, usually once every year, but all smoke alarms require attention of this frequency to keep them clean and insect free.

Some smoke alarms are provided with lithium long life batteries, lasting around 10 years, however, it is recommended to replace smoke alarms after this period of time so battery replacement is not an option.

Other smoke alarms may be wired in, therefore only requiring testing of the sensor and cleaning every year. In multiple alarm installations, they can all be configured to emit a warning sound when any of the alarms in the circuit are triggered. Some also have marker lights to guide occupants to safety where visibility is impaired due to heavy smoke.

Alliance Climate Control can complete installation of any selected smoke alarms, particularly those “wired-in” systems interconnected for additional safety. Accordingly, we will:

  • Recommend the most suitable type and location of smoke alarms to protect you and your family

Install your preferred smoke alarm whether that be a photoelectric or ionising type, regularly maintained, longlife battery or wired in smoke alarm systems.

  • We can even visit annually to inspect and maintain your smoke alarm systems, ensuring your home complies with government legislation and making sure all occupants are completely safe always.
  • We can also include replacement of any longlife battery models after 10 years’ service, so you don’t have to commit an installation date to memory and set up a replacement appointment. We can do that for you and let you know a couple of weeks in advance when replacement is due.

How to maintain your smoke alarms

Once your smoke alarms are installed, it’s an easy matter to simply forget them but you need to make sure they are ready to protect you and your family if a fire does happen while you are asleep. Consequently, no matter which type you select to install, it’s important to not only replace the battery every year, if applicable, but also to test its function every 3 months or as often as you please.

Perhaps you have installed the type where a torch beam will be enough to test the alarm, maybe the smoke alarm is accessible enough to reach with a broom handle or extension arm. However, for annual inspection and maintenance, the smoke alarm should be opened and cleaned to remove any dust or insects that might have built up.

Alliance Climate Control technicians would be pleased to provide this service for you to keep your smoke alarms in a good condition and also to ensure your family and your home are always well protected.

Can't speak highly enough of the Alliance team. I had delayed the air con install a number of times, due to strata approval muck around, and nothing was ever an issue, super responsive, helpful and then finally the job completion was a breeze, very polite, courteous tradesmen, entertained my young kids and the job was meticulous. Would highly recommend using these guys.

Excellent installation by the fabulous team at Alliance. It started with Goran coming for an assessment and very competitive quote. Team came in and did a fantastic job and consulted me every step of the way as vent placement was tricky in a hertitage house. Very pleased with the outcome and an exceptionally tidy job. Now sitting here in a very warm house.Thank you!

My husband and I had selected three installers to visit our place for quotes, based on high reviews. Goran stood out from the other with his attention to detail, competitive pricing, ease of professionalism and lack of pushy salesmanship. His team did a great job installing our three units over two levels. They kept up a helpful level of communication with me throughout the installation, they were friendly, punctual, tidy, respectful to my place and belongings and were professional from start to finish. We are so impressed with the entire experience. We will have no hesitation in using their services again, and recommending them to our family and friends.

Our whole experience with Alliance has been efficient, positive, and easy - quality in home advice, a competitive quote, quick response from the accounts department, transparent invoices and payment by installments. The installation turned out to be hard work for the technicians due to a double thickness gyprock roof but they kept on it until the job was done. They seemed to have plenty of experience and the right equipment for working on installations at height (the property is a townhouse), no problems with providing information to help us gain Strata approval, and during installation they were thoughtful and respectful of our neighbors. We are 100% happy. Penny and Lance - Harris Park

Highly recommend Michael and his team. We’ve had him install a whole house ducted system; 2 multi headed units in a 2 storey semi; and a single split system in a strata unit. Every job has been executed to perfection. Beginning with the initial consultation through to completion, we experienced professionalism and expediency. Clean, tidy, efficient installations; good choice of brands and placement of units. We’re really pleased.

The team from Alliance Climate Control were extremely professional, efficient and helpful. When other companies who inspected our aircon unit said we needed to spend $4,000 to replace, ACC looked further and found it was just a few parts that needed replaced. We are thrilled with this outcome and the great service!
