Really happy with the service and work I received from Dean and his apprentice. I had a number of new light fittings to install and also wanted some advice on getting power and lighting to our garages. I will book dean again for future work and highly recommend! Thanks again, Dean, the lighting looks amazing.

I am writing this review on behalf of my parents. I always use and recommend Dean to everyone. Recently my parents had a problem with random power going off at some parts of their home. Being elderly , Dean attended on site immediately, identified the issue and fixed it. He is very experienced and a genuine person , does not waste time and most importantly fixes the problem without overecharging. Would highly recommend Dean.

As a tradesperson myself I have seen and dealt with many trades of varying degrees of quality, from some of the best (rare) to some real shockers unfortunately. Dean and his team of guys most definitely impressed, the whole way through. Thanks Dean for coming by so quickly and for organising the job at lighting speed. Most appreciated thank you. Your guys were early/right on time and so friendly, polite and professional. I’m wrapped with Rob’s work and his meticulousness. Your team is teaching each other quality, and apprentice Shannon is so keen and willing to learn and keen to be helpful and back up his ‘mentor’ on the job at such a young age.. It was awesome to see!!! Quality is hard to find. Definitely highly recommend. Champions! Thank you

Dean with his excellent team (Al and John) did a number of electical jobs around our home recently. We are very happy with the whole process and outcome. Even when we added more items on the fly they were happy to accomodate and did everything to a very high standard. I highly recommend Approved Electrix for all your electrical needs!

I needed a data cable installed at our new unit. AE attended the site on short notice and provided a quote, and were able to start the job two days later. The day of the work, the electricians arrived promptly at their start time and completed their work. Would hire again.

I needed some domestic work: a mix of new power points and lights, the relocation of internet (FTTB) modem point to a more convenient location, and then running two cat6 network cables from the modem point across my apartment to another rooms.Dean responded fast to provide a detailed and competitive quote. Once confirmed he was able to schedule the job two days later.I work in IT and have seen lots of electrical work carried out by various electricians over the years so I'm confident in saying that his guys carried out the work very professionally.Rob turned up when they said he would, had the all necessary parts already with him, did the work to a high quality, and most impressively, was able to recommend creative and low cost solutions for a couple of things I hadn't considered, e.g. the network cables were cleverly able to be routed via the roof space to in between the narrow wall so there was no additional unsightly holes or conduit. Then they tested everything properly and cleaned up very well after themselves.This is all consistent with my previous experience when employing Dean several times over the past almost 10 years. Great service at reasonable prices... what more could you ask for?!

I have been using Dean and his team regularly since 2016 to assist with a range of electrical works at both my house and my parent's unit. Not only has he been very responsive and easy to deal with but the work is always of the highest quality. Highly recommended!

I went to the trouble of getting a number of quotes for a TV to be mounted & for x3 ceiling fans to be installed. Approved Electrix was not only the quickest business to respond, but the easiest to communicate with and had the most affordable quote. Their text message booking system was easy to use and made communication really easy. I was home the day the electrician (Al) came to do the job. He was so kind and helpful. He chatted to me about what he was doing and asked lots of questions has he installed the items to ensure they were positioned in the most ideal location. He even helped me fix up a few other small jobs in my house, he was wonderful & it was an excellent experience. I will definitely be using them again if I ever need electrical work done. Thank you for such a seamless service and thank you to Al for his work at my place 🙂

The boys did fantastic work very quickly at my place. My new garage is now wired up for cameras and electric car charging couldn’t be happier.Really appreciate Jordon accomodating changes to the plan on the fly as I thought of additional stuff I would like. Shannon also did great work from digging trenches to getting in the roof to run cables and wiring up all my new lights. I’ll definitely use these guys again.

Received 4 quotes for a switchboard upgrade. This group was the most professional and gave me the most confidence. Was flexible in adjusting the work to suit my preferences, turned up on time, work was completed without fuss and I was pleasantly surprised that they cleaned up everything at the end. I had an inspector drop by to review the work (because this included a new mains connection from the street) and they said it was a ‘good job’. Recommended.

Dean was super easy to coordinate with. Had 2 electricians out within hours who were super nice and replaced light switches fast. Really good prices, by far the cheapest. Would use again easily.

Very happy experience with Approved Electrix. Very prompt response to my request. Though mine was a small job, got rid of an unwanted wire and relocated a PowerPoint, it was done quickly and nicely. Thanks again to Dean and his team. Definitely will call them again when I have another job in the future.

Why Get A Safety Switch Installation?

Your safety switch is one of the most important measures for your business or home electrical safety as it aids in electrical fault detection.

Having a fully-functioning safety switch can be the difference between life and death in an emergency situation. Electric shocks can also cause fires, damage to electrical equipment and all manner of unwanted situations.

A safety switch works by shutting off your electricity when it detects an electric shock. If you don’t already have a safety switch installed in your home or on your business premises, your property may not be compliant with Australian electrical safety standards.

You should also have any installed safety switches tested every three months to ensure they’re in tip-top condition.

Approved Electrix offers bespoke safety switch installations and testing in Malvern, St Kilda, and other suburbs across Melbourne’s south-east.

Contact us on our site or call us at 03 0870 5737 for more information on residential and commercial safety switch installation services.

Here’s what you can expect when you work with Approved Electrix on the installation, testing and repair of your safety switches:

FAQ's

What does a safety switch do?

Installing a safety switch prevents electrical shocks, which can be dangerous to your property and its occupants. Safety switches work by detecting anomalies in the current electrical flow throughout a property that might be suggestive of an electricity leak. A properly functioning safety switch will then cut off the power supply where the leak is occurring within milliseconds of its detection, preventing issues like short circuits and electric fires. 

Safety switches, also called residual current devices (RCDs), must be tested regularly to ensure that they’re quick to respond in the event of a short circuit. Enlisting licensed electricians to perform scheduled electrical safety checks keeps your property, its electrical system, and all occupants safe from electrical fires, power outages, and other potentially dangerous electrical faults. Failure to perform regular safety switch/RCD maintenance can result in electrical faults going undetected, resulting in damage to your property or causing injuries like electrical shocks.

Safety switch tripping can be caused by a number of factors, including worn-out electrical appliances, rain exposure, overloaded circuits, damaged wires and more. This is why safety switch and circuit breaker safety checks should be conducted on a regular basis.

When you work with Approved Electrix, you can expect safety switch installation to take (insert time here), while safety switch inspections will take (insert time here) to complete. 

If you need help in a hurry, our emergency safety switch services are available around the clock. Just give us a call, and our experienced safety switch technicians will be at your property as soon as they can.

Energy Safe Victoria recommends property owners conduct at-home testing of their safety switches every three months. Our expert electricians also recommend performing RCD/safety switch testing by a licensed professional at least annually. Safety switch testing should be done monthly if the safety switches are located in a high-risk environment like a building site. 

 

The installation of a new safety switch involves one of our technicians visiting your domestic or commercial property to assess the ideal locations to install safety switches based on the positioning of your electric circuits. Then, we schedule another visit to perform your installation of your safety switch in accordance with all relevant Melbourne rules and regulations.
