it is important to enlist the services of a professional regarding installation and testing.
Fire Alarm Installation and Testing Offers Complete Peace of Mind
Nobody likes to think about the worst-case scenario, but this doesn’t mean that safeguards
cannot be instilled in a home or business. Fire alarms were once just an alert,
but the functionality on offer today is far more sophisticated.
Of course, the same alert feature is still in place, but there will be other components that
help enhance the safety of a building, as well as those inside it.
The complexity of these safety functions means that an electrical company
experienced in fire alarm installation and testing must carry out the work.
Testing the fire alarm can be carried out internally, but it is advisable
to also run tests through a qualified electrician to ensure that all aspects
of the fire alarm are operating as they should. Instructing an electrician
also allows for potential faults that can be fixed quickly so the integrity
of the fire alarm system isn’t compromised.
Is a Fire Alarm a Legal Requirement?
The installation of a fire alarm can confuse some, as they are unsure of the regulations regarding warning systems.
There is no legal requirement to have a fire alarm installed in the home, but it is advisable from a safety aspect.
The installation of a fire alarm can also help reduce the cost of home insurance, although there are other factors to consider.
From a business perspective, there is no legal requirement for a fire alarm,
but the company needs a proactive fire detection system. Given the potential damage a fire can do,
many businesses will choose a fire alarm system because of the additional features it offers.
Again, a business that takes time to review its fire safety protocols can find there are financial
advantages regarding insurance policies. The protection a fire alarm system delivers allows for complete peace of mind.
Do Fire Alarms Require Maintenance?
As fire alarms are connected to the mains, they will require maintenance to ensure they’re operating at their full capacity.
Those with a fire alarm system should aim to carry out a test once a month.
Fortunately, those who choose MrWatt for their fire alarm installation and testing
can also arrange a regular maintenance schedule.
Can I Install My Own Fire Alarm and Smoke Detector?
Some people can think smoke alarm and fire alert systems are the same, but they offer different functionality. Although the two can overlap from a safety aspect, the installation requirements are different.
The focus on smoke alarms is attributed to how easy fires can start.
Their use has been so prominent that it is not unusual for the fire brigade to fit them in residential homes for free.
Where a smoke detector senses smoke, a fire alarm offers both detection and action.
