Ottawa's Best Electrician
for Smoke Detector
Professional Smoke Detector and Fire Alarm Installation Services in Ottawa
Do you know that around 20,000 fire incidents are reported in Ontario every year, with residential fires constituting over 50% of these occurrences? These fires not only destroy homes but also result in injuries and deaths. In most cases, residential fires occur late at night when people are sound asleep and cannot quickly smell the smoke.
If you install a smoke and CO2 alarm in your home, it can quickly identify dangerous smoke and send out alerts early.
Ottawa Electric can install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms on each level of your home, preferably next to sleeping areas. Do you have outdated smoke detectors in your home? We can inspect or replace them to ensure that your house is a safe place.
Our expert electricians can ensure the fire and CO2 detectors are installed in the right locations to efficiently detect fire while avoiding false alarms from kitchen operations. We can also maintain your CO2 smoke detectors and give you advice on how to make sure you are getting the most out of your system.

Smoke Alarm Installation Ottawa
If your home fire detectors are setting off false alarms or, worse, not reliable in emergencies, it is time to upgrade it. Many fire alarms work for 10 to 15 years and require an upgrade or repair after this period.
You should update or replace your non-compliant system if it doesn’t meet the necessary sensitivity test requirements. Sometimes, the fire alarm systems lack new features like fire monitoring, fire department dispatch, or early detection or notification. Depending on your facility, consider adding those features to your fire detector system.
Yes. The 1986 Ontario Building Code requires direct-wired smoke alarms to be installed in all new homes. Similarly, the 2001 Ontario Building Code requires the mandatory installation of carbon monoxide alarms in homes and other residential buildings built after 2001. Alarms may be hardwired, battery-powered, or plug-in.
Smoke alarms must be installed on each storey of the home and outside sleeping areas. Because smoke rises, smoke alarms should be installed on the ceiling. If this is not possible, install the alarm high up on a wall. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when installing smoke alarms. Hardwired smoke alarms can enhance fire safety in the house.
Hardwired smoke alarms must be installed or replaced by a licensed electrician. Are you looking for a smoke detector repair? Book an appointment with us today. We can help with fire detector installation and repair.
Landlords are required to provide working smoke alarms; tenants are required to maintain those alarms in working condition. These alarms can play a critical role in fire protection.
Put simply, a smoke alarm detects smoke and sounds an alarm. A smoke detector is strictly a sensing device only, which senses the products of combustion (smoke) and sends a signal to a building’s fire alarm system to activate an audible and sometimes visual warning or alarm.
