Smoke detectors? Heat Detectors? How do they work? Why are they important?

Smoke detector with a battery

Knowing and understanding the difference between heat and smoke detectors will help you determine which detector is ideal for your home or business. 

There are four primary types of detectors that detect the presence of a fire. They are HEAT, IONIZATION, PHOTOELECTRIC, and IONIZATION/PHOTOELECTRIC detectors . The difference is how each of these detects fires, excess heat, and smoke.

Heat detectors

smoke detector

Heat detectors detect the presence of heat and an increase in air temperature. These detectors have few false alarms but, they take longer to identify a fire than a smoke detector. They’re ideal in situations where smoke detectors may cause false alarms such as steamy, humid, or dusty environments. Infrequently occupied areas like storage facilities, warehouses, or machine rooms also use these types of detectors.

Smoke Detectors 

Simpson smoke detector

The three most common smoke detectors are ionization, photoelectric, and combination ionization/photoelectric. All smoke detectors sound an alarm, when they identify smoke, to notify a building’s occupants. What differentiates these detectors from one another is the way that they detect smoke.

Ionization Smoke Detector 

Ionization Smoke Detector

Ionization smoke detectors have a constant electrical current that occurs between two metal plates in the device. When smoke enters the chamber it disrupts the electrical current and causes the alarm to sound. These detectors are excellent at detecting fast-burning fires.

Photoelectric Smoke Detector

Photoelectric Smoke Detector

Photoelectric smoke detectors have a beam of light in the device and when smoke scatters the light it causes the alarm to go off. This type of device is quicker to identify small smoldering fires than an ionization smoke detector. They’re extremely reliable and produce few false alarms.

Combination of Ionization/Photoelectric Smoke Detector

Combination of Ionization/Photoelectric Smoke Detector

A combination smoke detector is the best way to protect your facility and its occupants from a fire. When both forms of smoke detection are together on one device it helps to ensure that regardless of the type of fire, it will be detected as soon as possible.

Why do i need a smoke detector ?

Smoke detector offers

A smoke alarm stands guard around the clock, and when it first senses smoke, it sounds a shrill alarm. This often allows a family the precious, but limited, time needed to escape. About two-thirds of home fire deaths occur in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. Properly installed and maintained smoke alarms are considered to be one of the best and least expensive means of providing an early warning of a potentially deadly fire and could reduce by almost half the risk of dying from a fire in your home.
