Electrician Checking The Electrical Panel


Can I carry out my own electrical work?

No, carrying out electrical work if you are not a qualified, licensed electrician can be very dangerous.

In Australia, there are laws against unlicensed practitioners carrying out electrical work precisely because of the dangers involved.

Does my switchboard need to be upgraded?

Generally, a sign that the switchboard may need upgrading is frequent power outages and electrical faults.

You should also check your switchboard for a safety switch or RCD because if it doesn’t have one of these it should be upgraded to prevent potential electrocution hazards.

What’s better: copper wiring or fibre optic?

Copper wiring is considered superior because it meets all Australian standards as well as being durable, cheap, and reliable.

What are the benefits of having home automation installed?

Home automation systems can improve convenience, aesthetics, and energy savings around your home, and can be tailored to your family’s lifestyle and routine.

A home automation system could also increase the value of your home.
