Yes – heat alarms and smoke alarms detect fire in very different ways. Smoke alarms, as the name suggests, alert you to fires by detecting smoke, so if there’s a slow smouldering fire (which usually doesn’t give off a lot of heat) it could be missed for some time if a you only have a heat alarm installed. We would recommend you review the regulations specific to your area, but as a guide we recommend that homes have a smoke alarm in the hallway, landing and in the room most used in the daytime, alongside a heat alarm in the kitchen.
A Heat Alarm is perfect for detecting fires like those caused by faulty white goods, as they usually create a ‘blast’ of fire that’s very hot. Heat Alarms won’t false alarm to a dusty or humid room which makes it perfect for kitchens, utility rooms and garages where these items are usually found.
