Top Fire Alarm Installation related questions

There are two common types of smoke alarms: the ionization and photoelectric fire alarm. Ionization is a practical fire alarm technology with electrically charged plates, which ionizes the air in the chamber. Whenever a smoke enters the sensor, it will trigger the ions and alarm. Meanwhile, photoelectric smoke alarms installations involve a light-sensitive sensor, which will immediately set off as soon as the smoke disrupts the path of the laser or light.

If you have them ready on hand, feel free to lend them to your Tasker. Otherwise, you can book someone who can bring their installation kit on site. Most of the time, Taskers only require cordless drills and screwdrivers for the installation of wireless smoke alarms. As for hard-wired alarms, they might need a drywall saw, cable cutter, wire stripper, and a voltage tester.

The exact time frame heavily depends on the make and model of your fire alarm system. Since wireless smoke alarms don't require complicated electrical works, then it should only take a few hours to install. Hard-wired fire alarms might take a little longer, sometimes even an entire day to successfully mount them on your ceiling. For a more accurate estimation, feel free to ask your Tasker.

Commonly used in residential properties, a smoke alarm is usually self-contained with a detector. It directly sends an audible alarm or visual warning whenever it detects products of combustion or smoke. Smoke detectors, on the other side, are simply a sensing device interconnected to a central fire alarm unit, which is then responsible for transmitting ear-piercing alarms.

Since most components deteriorate over time, industry experts recommend upgrading your fire and smoke alarms every ten years. The purpose is to ensure that they will remain efficient and reliable during emergencies and fire breakouts. In case of a technical or structural failure, it is also more ideal to simply replace them if the repair is already charging you more than half of the original cost of your old device.

It depends on the code and regulations set by your local government. Before proceeding your fire or smoke detector installation, make sure to check first whether there are licenses or certifications needed. There are plenty of online resources that can help you review your obligations and responsibilities. For more information, you can also reach out by directly calling the government offices or visiting their website.

What do fire alarm installation services include?

To make the most out of your fire alarm systems, make sure to have them installed only by the experts. Fire alarm specialists can install and fit almost any type of fire alarm for your home or commercial space. If unsure of what alarm system will best compliment your residence and budget, they can also help you select the best make and model according to your needs.

Placing your fire alarms

It's best to distribute your fire systems in every level of your home, including the basement and attic. For higher survivability, you can also install them outside the bedroom, inside the living room, or stairway. The ceiling is always the perfect spot, although there are cases where some users prefer them mounted on walls. Whatever your preference, Taskers can help verify if they are safe and suitable for your chosen fire alarm system.

Fire and smoke alarm installation service

If you are installing fire alarms from scratch, electricians might need to drill holes first as per the required depth. Keep in mind that for hard-wired smoke alarm systems, they have to create openings on ceilings or walls that will hold the electrical boxes. They might also run wire cables to connect the system from a power source. Wireless fire alarms, on the other hand, require no cabling works to activate the detectors, hence resulting in very minimal disruptions.

For smart homes, we also have qualified specialists who can help install advanced smoke alarm systems that you can connect to your phone or tablet through WiFi. If you don't have a stable network connection, we can always send a Tasker who can help. You can also hire electricians who can extend your WiFi connection to dead zones such as the basement and attic.

Final testing of fire alarms

To ensure that your fire alarms won't fail in case of an unlikely case of fire, Taskers can help run final testing. When pushing the test button, the system should emanate a loud siren sound that will immediately get the attention of the dwellers. If the sound is weak, we can help troubleshoot and repair as possible.

Fire alarm maintenance

Apart from the installation services, Taskers can also assist with maintaining your fire alarm systems. There are two reasons why you should stick to a routine maintenance check: to reduce chances of false alarms, and also ensure that the device will surely set off before a fire breakout grows out of control. Ideally, for every six months, they can help assess the plates and covers and check for any structural changes, inspect battery or wiring, signal strengths, and more.
