Smoke alarms stand guard around the clock. They’re vital to keep you and your family safe – whether you’re sleeping or out and about. To keep these alarms in good working order, it’s important to test them regularly.
The first sign of a faulty alarm is a chirping noise or intermittent sounds in a lower pitched tone. If your smoke alarm works with batteries, it could be an easy, do-it-yourself fix. Start by testing the batteries – if they’re low on power, you have to replace them. Also give the unit a good wipe to get rid of dust or dirt that may have built up. If none of these tips seem to do the trick, it’s time to get a replacement smoke alarm. Especially if your current one is older than 10 years.
If you have a mains-powered smoke alarm, there could be an issue with the wiring. Fixing this involves working with electricity, so it’s vital to get a Part P qualified electrician to do a thorough assessment. They’ll replace faulty wires, repair broken parts and secure loose connections.
