Smoke Alarms - Choosing The Correct One
The cheaper ionisation detectors are best at detecting fast flaming fires but can be more prone to false alarms. The slightly more expensive optical detectors are more effective at detecting slow burning fires from wiring faults and furniture foam etc and are much less prone to false alarms. Heat detectors should be used in kitchens to avoid nuisance alarms. If you can, fit a smoke alarm with a Lithium battery as these last for 10 years and cannot be removed and forgotten about.
Smoke Alarms - Where To Fit Them
Downstairs rooms, hallway, landing and any bedroom that has a large appliance such as a TV or computer. In general, the more you have the safer you'll be - The best systems have a mixture of ionisation and optical alarms to cover all types of fire.
