You should look out for signs of electrical faults – there is always a risk of them becoming more serious, so you should get a professional to check them out.
Given the rapidly-growing electrical needs of modern life, you may require an upgraded switchboard at your property to handle this increase in demand.
We can ensure your switchboard has the correct circuit breakers and RCDs (residual current devices), as older homes might still have unreliable ceramic fuses.
All of your house’s wiring goes into the switchboard, so it must be able to handle your electrical needs – for example, if you have a renovation or extension that means more wiring, you must ensure the board can take these new connections safely.
Reliable Air conditioning is critical to beating the Queensland summer heat, so it is important to arrange regular servicing to ensure that your system is up to the challenge now and in the coming months.
We can install both ducted and split system air conditioning units, as we are well aware that different properties have unique needs – and each option has its advantages depending on your home’s size and other factors.
Our technicians can both install and diligently maintain these systems so that you can get the most from them; we inspect and repair where needed to give you the best and most efficient summer air-con possible.
Your smoke detector helps keep you and your family safe in the event of a fire, but their vital warnings are most reliable with regular maintenance and tests.
We not only install and repair quality smoke detectors, but we also carry out safety checks wherever necessary to double and triple-check that your alarm will reliably alert you to any danger.
Smoke alarms will be your first defense against fires, giving you the time and awareness to evacuate; without one, you could lose precious seconds or even minutes that you need to survive.
Frequently Asked Questions
What qualifications does the team at O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Coopers Plains have?
Not only do we meet the ISO 9001 standards of quality, but we are also part of the Master Electricians Australia association; this alone shows that we do not cut corners in our electrical services.
On top of this, we are CM3 certified – this means we meet a high standard of health and safety as contractors.
What is the difference between a safety switch and a circuit breaker?
Safety switches immediately shut down the electricity if the current starts to leak – in doing so, it prevents the risk of electrical shocks or burns. Their priority is to protect the people from electrical failure.
Circuit breakers, in contrast, focus on protecting the wires and appliances. Ideally, you should have both in your home – safety switches are a legal requirement.
Can I do any rewiring myself?
Only qualified electricians can legally conduct wire work in Queensland. Electricians have the vital equipment and knowledge to work on wires – anyone else would be risking their safety attempting any kind of electrical work themselves.
How often should I have an electrical safety check?
We recommend you get a professional to perform an electrical safety check every five years. If you purchase a property over 25 years old, you should inspect the systems as soon as possible.
However, there is no ‘wrong’ time to ensure your electrics are working. The more often, the better for your safety.
What is ducted or split-system air conditioning?
Ducted air-con is a relatively hidden design that sends air through the home using a series of ducts above the ceiling, distributing it across the whole property with ease.
Split systems are cheaper and benefit smaller properties by focusing on cooling a specific room. They are cheaper and easier to install and can be quite efficient if run correctly.
Can I install smoke detectors myself?
In Queensland, you can install a battery-powered alarm on your premises, but only a licensed professional can install a hardwired smoke alarm.
A connection to mains power is not perfect, but it is more reliable than batteries, which people can easily forget or neglect to replace.
