Smoke Alarm Installation Melbourne

Testing, Replacing and Installing new Smoke Alarms keeps your family safe!

Attention Home Owners: Have you had your smoke alarms tested recently? Smoke alarm testing and replacement should be done by a licensed electrician regularly!

Smoke alarms have a real impact on the safety of you and your family in the case of a fire. According to the Melbourne Fire Brigade, if you don’t have a working smoke alarm installed in your home, and a fire occurs, you are:

  • 57 per cent more likely to suffer property loss and damage
  • 26 per cent more likely to suffer serious injuries
  • Four times more likely to die

If your smoke alarm keeps going off or beeping for no reason, it could be faulty. Try changing the batteries yourself and make sure you have an electrician test and replace any faulty smoke alarms.

Smoke Alarms Need Replacing Every 10 Years

Smoke alarms need maintenance! The Melbourne Fire Brigade states that all smoke alarms must be tested regularly and be replaced every 10 years. You should have a smoke alarm between each bedroom area and the rest of the house, on each floor of your house, and inside any bedroom where someone sleeps with the door shut.

Our smoke alarm services include cleaning, testing, and installing new smoke alarms. We ensure compliance with the Building Code of Australia and Australian Standards AS 3786-1993. It is now mandatory to hard wire your smoke alarms to your mains power with a backup battery in case of a blackout.

Have one of our licensed local electricians come and inspect the smoke alarms in your home to check they work and are keeping your family safe.

Attention Landlords and Real Estate Agents: Get peace of mind knowing that the smoke alarms in your rental properties are keeping your tenants safe! Our electricians can service the smoke alarms in your properties to check you are meeting your legal responsibilities when it comes to fire safety.
