Installing Replacing Your Smoke Alarm When Needed

Expired Smoke Alarms

Over time with the build-up of dust, insects and other impurities, smoke alarms will inevitably impact their ability to detect fire and will expire. Today, most smoke alarms will last up to 10 years. However, in addition to a build-up of impurities,  there are a number of factors that can accelerate the wear and tear of your smoke alarms.

As a necessary fitting, smoke alarms are always on and working. This means that they are constantly drawing on power. As such, their batteries will eventually deplete. While this does not necessitate replacement, batteries should be changed every year.

Smoke detectors are made of plastic and do not do much to protect their internal components. As such, these electrical components tend to corrode over time from exposure to moisture, smoke and air affecting their ability to detect smoke particles.

While it is not possible to know how long your smoke alarm will last, you should replace both the battery and the entire unit every 10 years. Similarly, if your alarm looks faded, yellowed or you do not know when it was installed, it is probably time to replace your smoke alarms.

Educating You About Smoke Alarm Safety & Compliance

A smoke alarm’s ideal location is in the center of the room, however this is not a requirement.  They must be 300mm from any corners or lighting and 400mm from anything that maybe blow air i.e. fan or air conditioner.  Different requirements are needed for any sloping/exposed beam ceilings.  

Any dwellings built pre 1997 may have battery powered smoke alarms.  Domestic dwellings built 2014 and after are required to have all smoke alarms interconnected.

  • Smoke alarms older than 10 years or have failed to operate when tested must be replaced. 
  • If a smoke alarm is being replaced, it must be AS3786-2014 photoelectric and powered by what is present.

All property owners and landlords must ensure that working smoke alarms are well maintained and are compliant with recent legislation.

All compliant smoke alarms have “AS3786-2014” on them.
