Why You Need New Smoke Alarms

In 2022, alarming statistics revealed that over a quarter of household fires occurred in homes without smoke alarms. More than half of household fires were detected early due to the presence of functional smoke detectors. Adhering to these new laws ensures compliance and facilitates the early detection of house fires, allowing prompt intervention and prevention of further damage or loss of life.

That’s why, as of February 2022, Scotland introduced new regulations impacting property owners and landlords concerning heat and smoke detectors, heat alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.

Every residence must now feature interlinked smoke alarms, creating a network that triggers all alarms simultaneously in case of activation.

The specific requirements include:

  • One smoke detector in the living room or the most frequently used room.
  • One smoke alarm in each hallway and landing.
  • One heat alarm in the kitchen.
  • One smoke alarm in any adjoining garage or inhabited loft.

Additionally, the regulations mandate the installation of a carbon monoxide detector in any room with a carbon-fuelled appliance, like a gas fire or boiler.

A Landlords' Responsibility to Their Tenants:

For landlords, compliance is not just a legal requirement. It's an ethical obligation. As a registered property owner, you are accountable for ensuring your properties meet heat and smoke alarm standards.

At Keith Gunn, we have over 30 years of experience. Our NICEIC-qualified electricians understand the importance of seamlessly navigating these regulations.
