What Is Smoke Detector Installation?

There are many types of smoke detectors on the market – including wired smoke alarms and radio smoke detectors – and each have minute differences when it comes to their installation. In general, battery-operated smoke detector installation involves attaching your detector to a wall or ceiling (as close to the centre of the room as possible) with screws or adhesive strips. If not battery-operated, smoke detectors must be hardwired by a professional – like us – for the most secure installation possible.

Smoke detectors are a legal requirement in any property and have been for many years. They’re necessary because they do exactly what their name suggests! They detect fires and give a loud warning, allowing for a swift and safe evacuation. Indeed, by investing in proper smoke detector installation, you cut your risk of dying in a home fire in half.

There’s no installation more worthwhile.

What our customers say

Some of our previous reviews include:

Rapid, efficient, friendly

I was impressed from the word go with this firm. I was initially contacted by Alicja who took the basic details of the job and collected images of what I needed doing, presumably to pre-filter me to the right team. This was done very quickly and with minimal fuss, but in a personable and friendly way - which I appreciate is not an easy thing to balance. Less than 24 hours later I was contacted by Sameera who reconfirmed my details and booked me in with a contractor - again, with a friendly attitude and efficiently done. I got a text message with a tracking link telling me exactly when the contractor Giourgken was going to arrive, and it was helpful but unnecessary because he was precisely on time, completing the job perfectly and very quickly. He then did an assessment of another light fitting that we'd forgotten to ask to be included originally. All in all, I cannot fault Essential Repairs. I will absolutely be using them again and I thoroughly recommend them for speed, service and value.

Excellent maintenance company for central London

The team at Essential Repairs are excellent. They are extremely well organised and very helpful, and fair on their pricing too. Engineer visited the property on time, solved and repaired the issue and made some good suggestions. Got a report back that day with a sensible cost. They have done other work for us since then, and the service levels are consistent. Would highly recommend.

Highly Responsive

Highly responsive, clear reports and accurate quotes. Have used their services for a number of years and will happily continue to do so.

Good communications

Good communications by phone, email and text. All appointments kept too. Surveyor reviewed the dampness problem and arranged for a specialist firm to carry out an inspection. The specialist firm gave me advice that they would pass to Essential Repairs for action. I look forward to the work being undertaken by ER in due course. All undertaken at nil cost (so far)

I could not have hoped for a more…

I could not have hoped for a more efficient service. Repairs were done and replacement parts were supplied and fitted very well.

The team were fantastic

The team were fantastic - I had an issue at 6pm with the boiler breaking, and contacted Sameera that evening, who arranged an engineer to come the next day at 8am. He reviewed, ordered the parts, came back the following day and all was fixed by 12 noon. Highly recommend - both for service, time and skill!

Reliable service

I have used Essential Repairs a couple of times now and have found them to be responsive, professional and their tradesmen to be courteous and very pleasant to have around the house. Keep up the good work.

Smoke Detector Installation FAQs

Smoke detectors installed by Essential Repairs last 8-10 years from the date of manufacture, after which a replacement is required.

Your smoke alarm should be installed in high risk rooms, or your bedroom. For example, the hallways or kitchen. This ensures a swift evacuation in case of fire. Do not install a smoke alarm in a bathroom, as it could be falsely triggered by the steam. 

There should be at least one smoke alarm on each storey of your home, though customers can opt for a smoke alarm in every room if desired. 

For the leading professionals at Essential Repairs, we can install a smoke alarm system in anywhere between 30 minutes to a couple of hours – it depends on the detector you’ve chosen, and how many you’d like to install.
