Home accidents are very common worldwide. More precisely in Canada, in Quebec and Montreal homes, these unexpected events are recorded daily. These include fires, which can occur as a result of improper handling of domestic gas or failure of electrical installations. You can never be predictable enough to avoid these accidents. Fire alarm systems are therefore the ideal alternative to recommend to all homes. Discover in this article everything you need to know to easily install this technology in your home.

For safe residential and commercial buildings

There are three very distinct categories of home alarm systems on the market today.

Statistics show a worrying frequency of fire cases in Quebec and Montreal, especially in the winter season. Basically, residential incidents, for example, can be sustained at any time and have a short circuitas a simple cause. Forest fires, also very dangerous occur between the months of May and September razing everything in their path. Because of the density of the forest in Quebec, 46 of the area, forest fires are rapidly growing and endangering the lives of many residents. Successfully dealing with these fires requires frequent information about local weather conditions and a contingency plan beforehand. Also, one of the best alternatives for residential fires is the installation of afire alarm system or smoke alarms.

The installation of a fire alarm is an important precaution that helps to quickly detect a fire in a residence, a building or even a school. It allows you to undertake evacuations thanks to its alarm that alerts you in case of danger, and to contact the efficient authorities to avoid or control the fire. In practice, installed in the kitchen, living room or multimedia room, smoke alarms send a signal to the owner as soon as he perceives smoke from an excess of cooking or short circuit. This system ultimately acts for the safety of the occupants of a building, especially public buildings that receive a large mass of visitors on a daily basis. All of these factors justify the importance of the availability of a fire safety system within a home.

The right location and the excellent setting of a smoke detector are necessary so that this device can perform the task for which it is designed. Moreover, a daily configuration is recommended depending on the number of people present in the space where the device is installed. For this reason, installing this type of technology requires the expertise of a qualified and competent structure. Indeed, for successful work, one or more smoke detectors and heat detectors must be available. Then, you have to have a telephone transmitter, a siren and an alarm station (dedicated only to the device). These equipments are essential for this type of installation and only a professional can handle them properly.

Soliciting a professional for a professional installation

By entrusting the task to a recognized structure competent in the fire alarm system, you are guaranteed to have a good location. This is still important because the alarm should be positioned preferably on the wall and near a telephone socket. As a result, this provision facilitates connection and transmission to remote monitoring. As for the alarm station, it will have to be installed near the living areas to facilitate its accessibility. However, it will be necessary to ensure that the location of the latter remains a little discreet and sufficiently invisible to the ill-intentioned. In addition, if the building to accommodate the work is structured in several levels, it will be necessary to multiply the number of smoke detectors to cover all surfaces..

Finally, the good professional will finish his service by checking the installation to make sure that thefire alarm responds and receives the signals of the various detectors. If it works well, it will trigger the siren as soon as it detects any fire hazards.

The Quebec Safety Code has developed safety measures to prevent residential fires. One of the first steps in this direction is the installation of fire alarm systems. Then we can decide on the implementation of an emergency plan. In addition, technical and organisational measures stipulate that the storage and handling of combustible and flammable liquid should be avoidedas much as possible. Of course, if a fire were to occur, the people in the building should be evacuated by indicating the emergency exits. Internal means may also be provided to extinguish the fire if it is noticed in time. Internal means (means of first interventions) include:

  • The fire extinguisher
  • armed fire taps…

Finding a business to install a fire alarm system usually involves searching online. But this does not guarantee that you will find providers with good expertise and experience in the field.

Opt for a first free submission

In Quebec, free bids are increasingly favoured by individuals who wish to offer themselves the services of a company. They are done online with just a few clicks and allow you to compare several offers to determine which ones are right for you.

Relying on word of mouth

This approach allows you to reassure yourself of the good faith of your professional, his seriousness, his expertise and his skills.
In addition to these measures, be aware that before selecting an expert in the installation of fire alarm systems, you must target a shop selling smoke detectors in order to purchase the equipment necessary for this type of work. In Quebec, sellers specializing in this field are legion. It is up to you to be smart to find those offering quality products.
