You don’t want faulty smoke alarms installed in your home. We see this quite often when we visit people’s homes. Smoke alarms hanging with the battery removed, obviously due to the continual chirping that can come from alarms needing attention. In case of fire, it will not be able to set an early warning alarm and save lives if the basic maintenance and testing are overlooked. Please don’t let this happen to your family.

A few indicators that you should keep a lookout for to see if your smoke alarms need replacing are when it’s going off for no reason, the test button fails to operate the alarm, or the battery that you replaced didn’t even last a year or random chirping sounds.

Yes you need to be a qualified electrician to replace 240-volt hard-wired smoke alarms unless you can get a replacement that will slide into the smoke alarm base, that is the hard-wired part of the alarm. If you have battery-operated only smoke alarms, then any competent person can replace these.
