Radiators.

If the apartment has any old cast iron radiators that no longer work properly, perhaps it is not worth it to save them. It is true that cast iron radiators conserve heat better and that they fit in more nicely with an antique interior, but they are not adjustable. Moreover, a quality cast iron radiator renewal service will probably cost as much as your desire to buy new, modern radiators.

Air conditioner.

If your apartment is on the top floor, get an air conditioner – once the summer comes and the sun starts sizzling right above your head, you will see the value of this device.

Smoke detectors.

One of the main causes of fires is electrical wiring, which is why it should receive some extra attention in old or renovated houses. A scheduled repair is an excellent occasion for getting a smoke detector. In stores that sell fire protection equipment and appliance stores you can find three types of local (adapted for private apartments) smoke detectors:

  • detectors that react to smoke;
  • autonomous detectors that react to smoke emitted by burning objects, but not to cigarette smoke;
  • detectors that are plugged into a system wherein they react all at once.

Detectors that react to gas leakages work on a similar principle: they are fitted onto gas boilers or stoves. An apartment has to have at least one detector, a private house needs several. Local detectors are powered by 9V lithium batteries.

Smoke detectors should firstly be fitted in the bedroom and in children’s rooms (its main task is to alert the family members in case of fire).

Fit the detector onto the ceiling, as close to the centre of the room as possible. In multiple-storey houses, detectors should be fitted on the top floor, above the stairs because that’s where smoke accumulates.

Change the battery once a year (even if the detector did not sound a single alarm during that time). Some detectors sound silent beeps that indicate that the battery is low.

Smoke detectors should not be painted over.

Once the alarm is sounded, inhabitants of the apartment have to call the fire department themselves. That is not necessary if the apartment is fitted with systemic detectors, which are connected to a watcher’s panel. When calling a rescue service, first state your address, then explain what happened (if the phone call gets interrupted, the rescuers will arrive at the mentioned address).
