 New fire alarm legislation.
Topic Originator: twin par  
Date:   Fri 24 Sep 18:53

We have to put a heat alarm and linked alarms,as well as a monoxide detector,in our homes as from early next year.How the heck,is that enforceable. Only problem,could be that insurance policies, could demand it.

This was already the case. They just delayed the implementation because the idea of having workers going door to door fitting alarm in houses during a pandemic was idiotic.

Most modern houses (built after 2000ish) should already have linked smoke alarms. However, many will need a heat and carbon monoxide alarm fitted. Long life battery ones are probably the least invasive.

It can be for HMOs. Can't really be for private homes. May be that home insurance is higher for those without them.

Worse than that Jake. You may find in the event of a fire insurance may not pay out if the house doesn`t meet legal requirements.

You are talking about 200 quid plus, to come up to speed on this,really? Some households, just could not afford that.

Shop around and you can get a set of four interlinked smoke and heat alarms for £100.

Elderly neighbour got ripped off for £600 last year. Check out Safelincs online (it is a Lincolnshire based company, hence the spelling), got what was required for just over £100 and easy to pair and fit.

I have read that there are a lot of companies that have hiked up the price of these detectors because of this new system being Introduced.
Guy next door (I'm in a block of 4) regularly burns his dinner and sets off his alarm.... Does this mean that my alarms will go off too now?

No, it means a whole load will go off in his flat rather than just one.

No it`s even worse than that Jake. If he burns his dinner then whatever Widtink is cooking at the same time will also be burnt. Sure that`s how it works.
