The law on fire alarms is changing from February 2022. All Scottish homes will need to have interlinked alarms from this date.
Each home will require:-
- one some alarm in the living room or the room you use most
- one smoke alarm in every hallway or landing
- one heat alarm in the kitchen
All smoke and heat alarms should be fitted on the ceiling and interlinked.
If you have a carbon-fuelled appliance eg boiler, fire, heater or flue in any room, you most also have a carbon monoxide detector in that room, but this does not need to be linked to the fire alarms.
