The Content Of The Article:

I have an open wood chimney that smokes a little sometimes, in a house, while on the ground floor. Where should I put the smoke detector, to avoid ringtones at each wood fire: wall or ceiling, and how high?

The smoke detector must not be disturbed by fumes unrelated to a fire: chimney, cooking, etc. It must therefore be positioned in the less fluffy volume to be reached by these fumes. Only the observation in the event of a chimney fire will make it possible to determine the best situation, and in all cases, as far as possible from the chimney. As a general rule, the detector must be screwed to the ceiling, at least 30 cm from a wall or, at the top of the wall, more than 15 cm from the ceiling.
