Home Smoke Alarm Testing in North London and Hertfordshire

Over time, even the best alarms can begin to wear down as they collect dust and dirt, lose battery life, or generally degrade with age.

As part of our comprehensive smoke alarm testing service, our fully qualified specialists carry out a full and vigorous check on all aspects of your system, from the mains panel and batteries to smoke and heat detectors and sirens, are functioning as they should.

Types of Smoke Alarms We Support

We're proud to serve our community with comprehensive testing, replacements, and new installations of all Grade A - F smoke alarms. Some of the more popular models we work with include:
Battery-Powered Alarms
The standard alarm types fitted in most alarms, powered by a 9-volt battery.
Mains-Powered Alarms
Offering greater reliability than battery-powered models, mains-powered smoke detectors run on your home power supply with a back-up battery installed in case of power failure. If you're thinking of upgrading to this type of alarm from your battery-operated system, our North London Electricians can help with that.
Combination Strobe and Vibration Pad Smoke Alarms
Likewise, we can help you upgrade to a mains-powered alarm system with added strobe lights and vibrating pillow pads. These are ideal for nursing homes as well as in residential properties occupied by elderly people or those with hearing and sight difficulties. As a more affordable alternative, we can also fit alarms with a basic emergency light.
Interconnected Alarms
The most popular type of fire alarm in large commercial buildings, an interconnected system ensures that if heat or smoke is detected by any single alarm, all of the other alarms throughout the property will sound. For added safety, these can be connected to your fire sprinkler system and even to electronic doors to ensure an easy exit.

How to Test Your Smoke Detectors at Home

If you’ve had your alarm installed for a while and aren’t sure whether or not you need us to come and take a look at it, there’s a quick and simple way to test it for yourself.

  • Find the button labelled ‘test’ on the face of your smoke and hold it down. If the alarm starts ringing loudly, that’s a good sign that it’s in good working order.
  • If the alarm rings quietly (especially if it’s too quiet to hear over common household noises like the sound of your television), or if it doesn’t ring at all, that means there’s a problem.
  • It may be that simply changing the battery solves the problem. If it doesn’t, or if you’re still not confident that your smoke detector is working as it should, call us and we’ll be happy to help.
