Frequently Asked Questions
CAN I DO SMALL ELECTRICAL WORK MYSELF?
Definitely NO!! In nsw it is illegal for anyone but a qualified electrician to do any domestic wiring or house rewiring. Even if the work has been done to standard it will not pass certification which is bad news especially if you need to sell the property. It makes sense for safety to hire a qualified electrician to carry out all your household wiring. You also risk your personal safety and the safety of your family and friends.
WHAT IS AN RCD?
An RCD is a residual-current device, also known as a safety switch. The device is designed to monitor the electrical current and disconnect the power when a leak is detected from a fault in wiring, an appliance or switch.
WHEN SHOULD I HAVE AN ELECTRICAL SAFETY CHECK?
We recommend that you should have an electrical inspection carried out if:
- You are purchasing a property that has been occupied
- The property is more that 25 years old
- If it is more that 5 years since one has been done
- If you are concerned about how any of the equipment may have been installed
WHY SHOULD I USE A MASTER ELECTRICIAN?
A Master Electrician is trained to deliver professional, safe, reliable service at the highest standard. Master Electricians must carry out ongoing training to ensure they continue to be at the forefront of their trade.
HOW DOES AN ELECTRICAL SAFETY SWITCH SAVE LIVES?
On a normal power circuit, the current flowing to an appliance returns through the neutral wire. If the circuit is compromised, the electricity can leak to earth through a person in contact with the appliance, causing death or serious injury.
A safety switch detects the loss of power from the circuit, and cuts the supply of electricity in as little as 30 milliseconds – 0.003 seconds. Importantly, this response time is faster than the critical section of a heartbeat, and therefore significantly reduces the risk of death or serious injury.
WHAT IS TEST & TAG?
Test and Tag is a system where our electricians will test all the electrical equipment in a workplace for faults ensuring it is safe to be used by employees. The electrician will then attach a tag to the piece of equipment stating the date it was tested and when the next test is due.
WHAT ARE OUR HOURS OF WORK?
Our normal operating hours are 8am-5pm Monday to Friday. Outside of these hours we are available for emergency electrician work and if you have emergency work we are available 24/7
