Cost of Smoke Alarms

Smoke alarms are inexpensive to buy and it is a must have for property of any nature. The cost of smoke alarm depends on the type of smoke alarm

Ionisation alarms contain a small amount of radioactive material (not enough to affect health). They work by detecting particles emitted in a fire, rather than smoke or heat. They are best at detecting fires that break out quickly and don’t emit much smoke, but are less quick to detect smoky fires.

Photoelectric alarms use a photocell and light beams directed away from the device. They detect smoke when some of the light is scattered by smoke particles, triggering the alarm. The drawback of photoelectric alarms is that dust and even insects may sometimes trigger an alarm.

Dual sensor alarms include both ionisation and photoelectric capabilities. This means they have the benefits and drawbacks of both systems, so should not be installed in bathrooms or kitchens because of the likelihood of false alarms.

If you have gas heating, it’s also a good idea to install a carbon monoxide alarm. These alarms only detect carbon monoxide, which is a waste product of gas heating. If a ducted or unflued gas heater develops a fault, dangerous levels of carbon monoxide can build up in a house and the alarm can alert you to the danger.

Photoelectric alarms may be the best choice, because most fires are accompanied by smoke and smoulder before they start to spread. In most cases, photoelectric alarms detect smoke in 3 to 5 minutes, giving you enough warning to evacuate the house.

Ionisation alarms can take up to 20 minutes to respond. A fire may be too advanced by then to allow a family to evacuate.
