Smoke Detector Repair
To say that smoke detectors or smoke alarms are an important investment in a home’s fire security is an understatement.
Smoke detectors save lives and protect a property during a fire emergency. However, the device is one of the most overlooked safety tools.
A smoke alarm has to be strategically installed according to the National Fire Safety Association’s fire code and must be replaced every five years to ensure the reliability of functions.
If your smoke alarms at home are malfunctioning, it’s best to have a professional technician diagnose and repair them according to safety codes and standards.

Do electricians fix smoke alarms?
Yes, you’ll need to hire an electrician at some point to diagnose problems with the smoke detectors at your home.
Although basic tasks like monthly testing and replacing batteries can easily be completed by yourself, smoke detector installation, maintenance, and major repairs should still be done by a professional. Here are the ways an electrician can help you:
Choose the Best Smoke Alarm Units
Smoke detector models vary in quality, safety, and effectiveness. Electricians only install devices with great quality, up to code, safe, and reliable.
Be Up To Code
They are knowledgeable and updated with the latest rules and regulations of the national and state fire codes, and will guide you in following those. This way, you’ll ensure that you’re up to code and will prevent any potential fire safety violations.
A quick repair is always more cost-efficient than replacing your smoke detector constantly. It’s also a lot cheaper than having your property destroyed by a fire due to a malfunctioning smoke alarm.
Fix Other Electrical Problems
While installing a new smoke alarm or repairing an old one, the electrician can also diagnose other electrical issues in your home that may affect your fire safety later on.
