We want to make sure all our customers are safe as houses. To protect you and your family, it’s essential your home has working smoke alarms that are regularly tested.
We’re pleased to say all homes that are re-wired by Beyond Housing automatically receive a hard-wired smoke alarm. As part of your gas safety checks, we will also check that your smoke alarms are working, and will fit a new battery-operated smoke alarm free of charge where necessary.
Your smoke alarm
We hope you never need your smoke alarm, but if you ever did, you need to be sure it’s in good working order. So:
- Test your smoke alarm every week, by pressing the button firmly until the alarm sounds.
- If the alarm doesn’t sound, change the battery as soon as possible and retest the alarm.
- If the alarm still doesn’t sound, contact us on 0345 065 5656 and we’ll fit a new alarm in your home.
