Smoke, Fire & Gas Detection FAQs

Why is my smoke alarm beeping?

If your smoke alarm is sounding continuously, first check there is no smoke or fire in your property. If no fire or smoke is present, or the alarm is beeping intermittently, there are three main reasons why this may be happening:

  • It could indicate the alarm is over 10 years old and needs replacing. View our range of smoke alarms to find a replacement.
  • There could be a build up of dust inside. To clean it, you can use a vaccum cleaner or hair dryer on a cold setting.
  • It could also be an issue with the power supply or the batteries may need replacing.

Read our in-depth smoke alarm troubleshooting guide to find a full list of reasons and solutions.
