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.

Melbourne-Based Smoke Alarm Installation And Repairs

Over the years, we’ve refined our process for fixing or changing smoke detectors or installing brand-new smoke detectors in new properties.

As soon as you detect a problem with your smoke alarm, promptly repairing or replacing it is imperative to maintaining the safety of your home or business.

Fixing a faulty smoke detector is essential to ensuring that your smoke alarms maintain the capacity to detect fire or smoke and alert you promptly to avoid injury or extensive fire damage to your property.

At Approved Electrix, we’re also proud to provide emergency electrical services to ensure that Melbourne homes and businesses can always access the support of our dedicated electricians and technicians.

To learn more about the smoke alarm installation, repair and maintenance services we offer, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. You’ll be speaking directly with a qualified smoke detector technician whenever you call Approved Electrix for smoke alarm services.

Here are the benefits you get when you work with Approved Electrix for smoke alarm repairs and installation:

Recent Electrical Projects

We work on many electrical projects across domestic and commercial properties. From lighting, to switchboard upgrades and more.

Why do I need a properly functioning smoke detector at home or in my business?

Smoke detector installation and maintenance are critical, as smoke detectors are your first line of defence against fires-related emergencies. Smoke alarms are also a legal requirement in Australia, and all residences and commercial properties are expected to maintain smoke alarms in accordance with federal and state regulations.

Since 1997, all residential properties in Victoria have been required to have a smoke alarm installed on premises in accordance with Australian Standards AS3786. Additionally, in homes built after 1 May 2014, smoke detectors need to be interconnected if there is more than one smoke alarm installed on-site.

Smoke detector maintenance involves cleaning dust from your smoke alarm, replacing old batteries, making sure smoke detectors are correctly wired, and ensuring that alarms are operational and responsive right. Our expert smoke alarm technicians perform a comprehensive audit of all your smoke alarms, then perform all necessary repairs and replacements to make sure each smoke detector is as good as new. 

The cost of smoke detector maintenance or installation depends heavily on the number of smoke detectors that require repair on your premises. A simple repair of your smoke detector’s wiring or a change of batteries will typically also be cheaper than installing a brand-new smoke detector. 

If you’re after a more precise number, don’t hesitate to reach out to Approved Electrix via our website. 

If your smoke detector is bepeing because the smoke alarm is detecting smoke, remove the source of the smoke, and your smoke alarm will soon stop chiming. If your smoke alarm is going off in brief, rapid bursts, then there may be a problem with your smoke detector that requires maintenance.

You might need to replace the smoke detector’s batteries, fix the wiring or even change your smoke detector completely. For more complex tasks, you’re best off getting a licensed smoke detector maintenance expert to investigate the issue. 

For both safety and regulatory purposes, Approved Electrix offers installation services for interconnected smoke detectors. Our smoke detector installation and maintenance experts have been working with both modern and older residential and commercial properties. We have installed and fixed every type of smoke alarm, including interconnected smoke detectors. 

In homes built after 2014, an interconnected network of smoke detectors is a must, and Approved Electrix has been installing and repairing these types of smoke detectors long before the rule came into force.

Smoke alarms need to be maintained and changed on a regular basis. Fire Rescue Victoria lays out some guidelines on when you need to perform certain smoke detector maintenance tasks.

  • Smoke detectors should be tested every month to check if they can still beep – this is a smoke alarm repair task you can perform yourself by pressing the test button.
  • Smoke detector cleaning should be done monthly – you can do this on your own, or with the help of a smoke detector maintenance technician if there are other repairs that need to be done, or if the smoke alarm is extremely dirty.
  • Smoke detectors need to be changed every 10 years as that’s the lifespan of lithium batteries – this requires a smoke detector service expert.

Additionally, our expert technicians strongly recommend that you get maintenance work performed on your smoke detectors by professionals annually to ensure that the smoke alarms are in top working condition should an emergency occur.
