Detectors

If we have fitted hard-wired smoke detectors in your home, these will be serviced annually by our heating engineers (if you have gas central heating), or by our own maintenance operatives (if your heating is electric or oil fired).

Please note that hard-wired smoke detectors will have batteries fitted even though they are wired in the mains. This is to ensure that, should there be an electrical problem, the alarm will still be activated.

If we have fitted battery sealed-unit smoke detectors, these will be replaced every seven years as part of our cyclical maintenance programme.

We will provide and maintain carbon monoxide detectors to properties that have back boilers, as part of the annual servicing programme.
