Your free Fire Risk Assessment Survey will provide a price indicator of any work required to make sure your home complies with the new Scottish Government legislation.
Can I fit the smoke alarm system myself?
Yes you can. It is, however, advisable to book a free Fire Risk Assessment Survey. Then you will know what you need to fit and the correct location of the units.
What if I choose to do nothing?
Please contact your insurance company to find out if they will continue to cover your home for fire risk after February 2022. The new rules are LEGISLATION and NOT recommendations. Every Scottish Home MUST comply.
Why should I get AHS to install my Smoke alarm system?
When AHS install a smoke alarm system in your home they issue a Certificate of Compliance. This is signed and dated by your AHS professional installation engineer. This is proof for your insurance company that your home complies with the Scottish Smoke and Fire Alarm legislation. It will also form part of your home report should you wish to sell your home.
