The best electricians you could use in Melbourne by a country mile. From the moment I called Byrd electrical and spoke with Tara I was confident I was going to be in good hands. In the midst of some home renovations in Albion, my wife contacted Byrd Electrical with the intention of installing a new oven and induction cooktop. Prior to engaging Byrd electrical we were given ridiculous quotes and even told by some what we wanted wasn’t going to be possible. From the moment we engaged Byrd Electrical the whole project felt like a relief rather than a task. The team at Byrd Electrical gave us numerous options factoring in different budgets. Along the way during the demolition and installation process the tradies were very open in their communication with how things were coming along aswell as accurate timeframes of when things would be done. What was very noticeable was how respectfully the tradesman Boyd, Mark and Leon spoke to and treated their newly appointed apprentice Pat which we thought spoke volumes about the company. All the tradies that came through the house were very respectful and patient to our two young children who were in the house for the renovations a lot of the time. The job was done to an incredible standard and upon completion the owner Ben took us through everything to ensure we were happy with the finished product. Highly recommend Byrd Electrical and will definitely be using the team at Byrd Electrical in the future.

I had Ben wall mount our new TV, relocate our existing TV, plus install a new power point. I would recommend Ben & his team very highly as he was on time did an excellent job & both my partner & I are extremely happy with the finished results. Ben was polite, tidy & explained everything before doing it. Ben is also well priced, no extra charges as some others. A big thanks to Ben & his team on service & quality will definitely use them again for future projects.

"Boyd from Byrd Electrical is a superhero in disguise as an electrician! Not only did he expertly install our three ceiling fans and four pendant lights faster than a bolt of lightning, he also managed to explain the warranty information to our 3.5-year-old with such finesse, that our toddler thinks they're the new warranty expert in town! Boyd's dedication, patience, and knack for making electrical work seem like a magical show deserve a standing ovation. If there were an award for the 'Coolest Electrician,' Boyd would win it hands down. Five stars just aren't enough to rate this electrifying experience!"

Smoke Alarm Installation

Smoke Alarm Installation

Working smoke alarms save lives by alerting you of the danger in time. They are essential and mandatory in all residential buildings in Sandringham, Victoria.

Types Of Smoke Alarms

There are two main types of smoke alarms that are compliant with the Australian Standard AS 3786, which are acceptable in Sandringham, Victoria:

Ionisation chamber smoke alarms:

These have been around the longest and are the most common in Victoria. They are efficient in detecting smoke particles caused by fast-burning fires but less effective in detecting slow-burning fires.

Photoelectronic smoke alarms:

This technology is newer. The light sensor detects smoke from slow-burning fires, which is how most house fires start. The CFA recommends photoelectronic alarms.

Smoke Alarms Can Be Powered in Several Ways:

9V battery-powered:

These are not connected to any wires and can be installed by the homeowner anywhere. If the battery dies, there is no backup power, so ensure to change the battery annually. Only acceptable in homes built before 1st August 1997.

Hard-wired:

Smoke alarms that connect to the 240V mains power and must be installed by a certified electrician. They also use a battery as backup in case the power goes out. Homes built after 1st August 1997 must have hard-wired smoke alarms.

Wireless smoke alarms powered by a 10-year lithium battery:

These have the added convenience of long life without the annual change of battery.

CFA Recommendations:

  • It is recommended you install smoke alarms in every bedroom.
  • Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one alarm detects a fire, all other alarms should activate.

Why Choose a Professional To Install Your Smoke Alarm

A licensed electrician must install hard-wired smoke alarms in compliance with regulations. They are also experts in properly interconnecting all of the alarms, so you will have an effective warning system. In addition, a licensed electrician can conduct an electrical safety inspection to make sure that your home is safe.

Advantages of Having a Working Smoke Alarm

Statistics show that most home fires in Australia start during the hours when people are asleep. A working smoke alarm will detect a fire before a sleeping person awakes. The network of alarms will ensure your household is warned early enough to get everyone to safety.
