A neighbour recommended Ku-ring-gai Electrical Service for our external lighting, and what a great recommendation it was! Pat came out to do the quote - he was full of great ideas and extremely practical in his approach. Mark, Cameron and Hayden did an amazing job with the installation. There were a few tricky aspects, but perseverance won the day. I couldn't be happier and will be using Pat and team for all our future electrical needs. Thanks Pat and Team!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the requirements a smoke alarm must meet to comply with AS 3786:2014 ?

AS 3786:2014 includes the following requirements that smoke alarms must meet in order to be compliant:

Sensitivity: Smoke alarms must be able to detect smoke at a concentration that is likely to cause a fire.
Alarm output: Smoke alarms must produce an audible alarm that is loud enough to be heard throughout the dwelling ( ISO 8201 and ISO 7731).

Battery life : Smoke alarms must have a battery life of at least 10 years.

Installation: Smoke alarms should be installed on the ceiling or high on a wall, at least 4 inches away from any corners or obstructions. They should also be at least 12 inches away from windows, doors, and air vents.

Maintenance: Smoke alarms must be tested monthly, cleaned every six months, and have their batteries replaced annually.

Markings: The smoke alarm should be marked clearly with the AS 3786:2014 standard, its type, for example, A for photoelectric smoke alarms, dates of manufacture and replacement, and the radioactive symbol.

Speak to an electrician at Ku-ring-gai Electrical Service to choose an ideal smoke alarm for your property and get it professionally installed.

Who is responsible for smoke alarm maintenance in NSW strata properties?

All kinds of electrical work should be conducted by a licensed electrician in NSW strata properties, including smoke alarm installation and replacement. Here are some scenarios pertaining to smoke alarm maintenance:

Tenant: If you own the unit, you must hire electricians for the full spectrum of smoke alarm servicing, from installation to upkeep.
Landlord: When a tenant reports a malfunctioning or nonfunctional smoke alarm, you must resolve the issue within 48 hours. You must hire electricians for part and whole-unit installation, replacement, and inspection.
Owners Corporation: If you are in charge of the building, you oversee all smoke alarm concerns for common areas. You should appoint an electrician to ensure that the smoke alarms are connected to the mains and that the battery is non-removable with a ten-year life-expectancy.
Contact us for smoke alarm services in your strata building.

Where are the best places to install smoke alarms in the house?

The best places to install smoke alarms in your home are:
Inside each bedroom: This is the most important place to install a smoke alarm, as people are most likely to be asleep in their bedrooms when a fire starts.
Outside each sleeping area: If you have a large home with multiple bedrooms, you may want to install a smoke alarm outside each room, such as in the hallway or living room.
On every level of the home: This includes the basement, attic, and garage.
Near the kitchen: The kitchen is a common place for fires to start, so it is important to have a smoke alarm in or near the kitchen.
Near the furnace or water heater: These appliances can also produce smoke, so it is important to have a smoke alarm near them.

What is the importance of interconnecting smoke alarms for my property?

Interconnecting smoke alarms in your property significantly enhances your safety and protection against fires. If one alarm detects smoke and triggers, all the alarms in the property will simultaneously activate. This provides an immediate, property-wide alert, ensuring that all occupants, no matter where they are on the property, are promptly warned of potential danger.
This is particularly important in larger properties or multi-storey buildings where a fire in one area might not immediately trigger a distant smoke alarm. Interconnection ensures that even if a fire starts in the basement, the alarms on the upper floors will still alert the occupants.
Talk to us if you would like to install interconnected smoke alarms or link existing ones.

What is your smoke alarm installation cost?

smoke alarm installation depends on various factors such as type of property, number of alarms required and their location. At Ku-ring-gai Electrical Service, we offer transparent, honest and affordable pricing. We also provide upfront and free quotes so that you don't get any surprises later on. Call us today on 0418 442 578.
