Mains Wired Smoke Alarms in Edinburgh

Landlords have a raft of regulations to adhere to (EICR, PAT testing) and one of the most important is having mains wired smoke alarms and heat alarms in your properties. This regulation is to ensure the safety of tenants and there is a legal requirement to comply.

As NICEIC electrical contractors, Keith Gunn Electrical Solutions offers landlords in Edinburgh a complete electrical service to ensure that you comply with all regulations.

Smoke Alarm Guidance

The Scottish Government has issued landlords with guidance on fire detection in private rented properties. There are more than 6000 fires detected in homes in Scotland each year with around 50 deaths and 1300 injuries resulting from these fires. The Domestic Technical Guidance Handbook states the following:

  • one functioning smoke alarm in the 1 room which is frequently used by the occupants for general daytime living purposes
  • one functioning smoke alarm in every circulation space, such as hallways and landings
  • one heat alarm in every kitchen, and
  • all alarms should be interlinked.

Why Smoke Alarms and Heat Alarms Are Important

According to national statistics, fires in homes which have installed hard wired smoke alarms are discovered more rapidly (less than 5 minutes) after ignition; and are associated with lower death rates.

If you need to install mains wired smoke alarms into your property, then contact us. We have years of experience and will ensure that your property will have the right detection systems in place.

“I needed a light fitting replaced with a new one. After getting an email quote from Keith Gunn I phoned up the following day to arrange someone to come round to do the job. I was lucky enough that someone was able to come out that morning to do the job. The fitter that came round was lovely and polite and did a fantastic job! Would happily recommend and I will definitely be using Keith Gunn again for any future work.”
