Why we love working in Nambour

Nambour was first settled in 1870 and is bursting with the charm, character and stories of centuries past. With so much heritage, what a wonderful township it must be to settle into and raise a family, or to retire in the peace and tranquility of the area. We can’t help but notice the resurgence of Nambour in more recent years, with the growing number of lovely cafes and eateries, plus basement bars and galleries too. There’s your museum to be proud of too of course, as well as other nearby attractions to enjoy such as Hinterland wine tasting, the ever popular Yandina Ginger Factory and the famous Eumundi Markets, all within easy driving distance of this charming town. I think our favorite is the rainforest walks and waterfalls of the region. What would be your favourite? 

From a smoke alarm angle, we find we are servicing a broad cross section of homes with smoke alarms of all ages and conditions in Nambour, which keeps us busy. Nambour, as you would expect, has a significant number of older homes, some of which have no working smoke alarms at all … scary! On the other hand, however, we are discovering a lot of other homes in Nambour have smoke alarms installed that are nearing their 10-year expiry date, which means they now need to be replaced with new ones. 


Here are some of the smoke alarm services we offer you in Nambour...

We carry out all smoke alarm services in Nambour, so if you don't see what you need below, chances are we can help anyway. Get in touch with us today to discuss what you need.

Smoke alarm repair

If you find your smoke alarms are false alarming and/or randomly chirping (and they're less than 10 years old and of acceptable condition), repairing the smoke alarm is often a more cost-effective option than replacing them. Reach out to us today to schedule a site visit and free consultation. After inspecting your smoke alarm(s) and running some tests, we'll be able to give you some prices and options for its repair.

Nambour QLD 2022 and 2027 Smoke Alarm Legislation Upgrades

QLD 2022 and 2027 Smoke Alarm Legislation upgrades

By the 1st January 2022, all properties in QLD being leased or sold will require to have photoelectric smoke alarms (mains powered or powered by a non-removable 10-year-life lithium battery) inside EVERY bedroom, in the spaces connecting the bedrooms and the escape areas (i.e. the corridors) and on each level. They will also require interconnection with each other (i.e. when one smoke alarm sounds, all alarms sound). For all owner-occupied homes in QLD, the same standard will be required by 1st January 2027. See QFES for more information.

Contact Smoke Alarmed today for a free quote to upgrade your Nambour home to the incoming 2022 and 2027 smoke alarm standards.

Rental Property Smoke Alarm Testing Nambour

Smoke alarm testing and compliance for rental properties

In rental properties in QLD, smoke alarms require testing in the 30 days prior to a new tenancy or tenancy renewal. Contact us today to take the hassle out of your rental property smoke alarm and electrical compliance obligations

Expired Smoke Detector Replacement Nambour

Expired smoke alarm replacement

All smoke alarms expire when they reach 10 years of age, after which they need to be replaced. The manufacturing date and/or the expiry date are often labelled on the rear of the alarm. How old are yours? 

If you're not sure, arrange for one of our smoke alarm electricians to visit and assess your smoke alarms. We'll provide a free, no obligation quote if they need to be replaced with new.

Smoke alarm testing

When it comes to smoke alarm testing, we're thorough and leave no stone unturned. We carry out a thorough 7-point testing and service process on each alarm. 

This includes an audible (sound pressure) test using a sound meter, a simulated smoke test (to ensure the alarm activates under real-life conditions), an internal sensor clean, and replacing the battery of course (whether that be a back up battery or the alarm's main power source), just to name a few. We also apply insect repellent on the smoke alarm and surrounding surfaces to limit the chance of insect ingress which can cause those annoying false alarms. Just pressing a test button on a smoke alarm is simply not enough to ensure your smoke alarm works when you need it to work the most. 

Smoke Alarmed are relentless in their smoke alarm testing procedures and go further than any other smoke alarm testing company in Nambour. The safety of you, your family or tenants is far too important to risk on anything less!

Smoke Alarm Testing Nambour

Upgrade to photoelectric smoke alarms

Photoelectric (optical) smoke alarms are far superior to their older 'ionisation' counterparts. Photoelectric smoke alarms alert you to a fire quicker and they are far less likely to false alarm from burning toast, cooking smoke and humidity. 

Upgrading to photoelectric smoke alarms is a worthwhile investment to improve the fire safety in your Nambour property.

My fire alarms kept going off despite me replacing the batteries. Smoke Alarmed were quick to respond to my request and had an electrician here in a few hours. He ended up replacing the alarms as they were old. Friendly and prompt service I've told many people about.

Some helpful FAQ's

Do you charge a call out fee?

No, there's no call out fee. It costs you nothing for us to visit you wherever you're located in Nambour. We price our services 'by the specific job' and not by the hour so once we assess your requirements, you will always be given a fixed up front quote before any work starts. You will have no nasty surprises.

How much does it cost to ... ?

The best way for us to provide you with the right advice and accurate pricing is to visit you in person and assess your property's floor plan and existing smoke alarm system. After that, we will provide you with a fixed priced quote. If you wish to proceed, we can usually carry out the work on the spot so you don't have to wait for us to come back another time. As mentioned above, we don't charge a call out fee, so it costs you nothing for our site visit and consultation. 

Are you electricians or just a smoke alarm company?

We're electricians who are licensed to carry out all electrical work. However, we are also smoke alarm specialists. We are not typical 'jack of all trades' electricians who might only install the odd smoke alarm here and there. Nor are we a traditional smoke alarm company who travels from property to property to only test smoke alarms. Being licensed electricians, we're qualified to attend to all mains powered (hard wired) smoke alarm repairs and installations. In addition, we have the knowledge and experience to handle the complexities of any smoke alarm problem.

Do you only work in Nambour?

We're often in Nambour, but it's not the only suburb we visit. We service all Sunshine Coast QLD suburbs between Beerwah in the South, to Noosa Heads in the North, and West out to Montville and Maleny. If you're unsure if we service your area, reach out to us today.

When do the new QLD smoke alarm laws come in?

By 1st January 2022, all QLD properties being sold or rented will be required to have mains powered or 10-year-lithium battery powered photoelectric smoke alarms installed in every bedroom and outside the bedrooms in the corridors, and all alarms will need to be interconnected with each other (meaning, when one alarm sounds, all alarms sound). All owner-occupied homes in QLD will be required to meet this standard by no later than 1st January 2027. If you need more information on the incoming QLD Smoke Alarm Legislation, please give us a call today!

Hard wired smoke detector testing

Hard wired smoke detectors are our specialty at Smoke Alarmed. We test countless hard wired smoke detectors every day, and would be only too happy to inspect and test yours. 

Ideally, hard wired smoke detectors should be interconnected with the other detectors in your home, so that when one detector activates, all detectors activate, thus providing you with the earliest possible warning and best chance of escape should there be a fire. Smoke Alarmed can not only test the compliance and operation of your hard wired detectors, but also their successful interconnection with other detectors in your home.

By 1st January 2022 for rental properties and homes being sold, and 2027 for owner-occupied homes, all smoke detectors in homes in QLD will need to be interconnected with each other. Contact Smoke Alarmed today to arrange an assessment of your hard wired smoke detectors and if required, we can provide you with a free fixed price quote or upgrade your detectors to be interconnected with each other.


Smoke alarm testing in rental properties

Current smoke alarm legislation states that a rental property must have its smoke alarms tested in the 30 days prior to a new tenancy agreement or tenancy renewal to confirm they are safe, compliant and working correctly. 

If you're a rental property owner, Smoke Alarmed will efficiently liaise with real estate agents and tenants to arrange access to your property to carry out the required smoke alarm tests.

Whilst there, we carry out our advanced 7-point testing and service process on each and every alarm and provide you with a report of the test as well as a Smoke Alarm Compliance Certificate if they've all been deemed compliant. 

We treat your property and tenants with respect by using protective mats, drop cloths and shoe covers whilst carrying out the testing, and leave no trace of mess behind.

Discounted recurring annual testing and service plans are available which include unlimited visits to the property each year as well as free return visits should your tenant's experience beeping smoke alarms or random false-alarms.


Smoke alarm testing certificates

Sometimes you may need a smoke alarm compliance certificate for insurance purposes or at the time of a property sale or transfer. Smoke Alarmed can swiftly carry out this service and provide you with the required documentation within 24 hours of our scheduled visit.

Some of the checks we carry out include:

* The age of the smoke alarms (they should be less than 10 years old)

*Their positioning in the dwelling, proximity to bedrooms, corridors, egress paths etc.

* Whether they contain a photo-optical sensor or the older ionisation type

* Whether they are stand alone smoke alarms or interconnected with each other (when one alarm activates, all alarms activate)

* Their compliance with AS3786

* Their general condition including the security of the mounting bracket on the ceiling

* And of course, testing and operational checks to ensure they are safe, compliant and working properly

When required, and with your approval, we can carry out any repairs or upgrades whilst we are on site.


Pre-purchase smoke alarm testing and audits

How do you know the smoke alarm system in the home you're planning on buying is compliant with current standards? Sure, your purchase contract may have a box checked to indicate the smoke alarms are working correctly, but experience often tells us, nothing can be further from the truth.

For peace of mind for your family's safety, arrange for Smoke Alarmed to carry out a pre-purchase inspection of your smoke alarms and safety switches.

We will thoroughly inspect and test your smoke alarms and safety switches and advise on if they are satisfactory, and if not, provide a written report of non-compliance accompanied by a quote to have the system repaired or upgraded.


Smoke alarm battery testing

A beeping/chirping smoke alarm is everyone's enemy. If your smoke alarm is beeping once every 30-40 seconds or so, or you are confused as to why the new battery you've installed in your alarm is still causing it to beep, contact us today. We will visit swiftly at your location on the Sunshine Coast and carry out some tests on your smoke alarm battery (whether it be a replaceable 9 volt battery or sealed rechargeable lithium battery) to determine the best course of action to have the issue solved.


Fire alarm audible testing

Residential fire alarms should meet a minimum requirement of 85dB of noise output at 3 metres.

Your smoke alarms may be proven to operate, but how do you know if they are loud enough to wake you in the event of a fire?

Smoke Alarmed electricians are equipped with the test equipment to carry out this smoke alarm audible testing of the siren, and take the additional steps of measuring the sound level where you sleep at the bed head.

We'll be able to provide you with recommendations to improve the safety of the smoke alarm system in your home, which may include relocating your existing alarms or adding more smoke alarms in key areas (and interconnecting them with others so that when one alarm sounds, all alarms sound).


Smoke alarm inspections

If you're a little unsure how old or effective your existing smoke alarms are, or perhaps your alarms are giving you a bit of grief, contact Smoke Alarmed to carry out a smoke alarm inspection.

We don't charge a call out fee to visit and chat about your smoke alarms. We'll be able to give some honest, un-biased advice about the condition of your smoke alarms and what you can do to improve the fire and electrical safety in your Sunshine Coast home. Whether or not you choose us to carry out any work is irrelevant, but our hope at least is to provide you with some fire safety tips and advice which may one day become useful.


Annual smoke alarm testing

Aside from rental properties which need their smoke alarms tested in the 30 days prior to a new tenancy or tenancy renewal, many private home-owners arrange for us to carry out a recurring annual smoke alarm test and service. This provides them with a level of peace of mind that the smoke alarm system in their home is safe, compliant and working properly  should it be called upon to operate in the time of need.

Call us today on 1800 SMOKE ALARM or send us a text message on 0447 377 453 to find out about our low annual pricing and schedule a convenient time to commence your annual smoke alarm testing.
