Free 10-Point Safety Check
When an electrical switchboard is unsafe or old, it can pose a risk of fire, electric shock or even death! We value our customers’ safety above all else, so we offer a free 10-point visual safety check of your home’s switchboard. This safety check encompasses the following:
1. Exposed live wires or parts
Yes, we’re very affordable and aim to provide the best value for money possible.
pests such as vermin, geckos, cockroaches and similar creepy crawlies that live in or around electrical equipment pose a risk of fire or general wiring damage. We’ll let you know how to get rid of them and keep them out in the future.
asbestos exists in more homes than most people realise. It’s stable if it’s left alone, but should definitely be removed! Don’t ever try to do this yourself - if we identify asbestos, we’ll advise you who to call for safe disposal.
4. Earth / ground wire
the earthing wire will protect you from electric shock, so it should be replaced if it’s missing, damaged or not properly functioning.
5. Rewireable fuses
these are illegal in Queensland due to a number of safety incidents and fires. A combined circuit breaker and safety switch should be installed instead and we can do that for you.
6. Safety switches on power points
a working safety switch will cut the power off immediately in the event of a short or an electrocution event. These are now absolutely mandatory in Australia and if yours aren’t functioning correctly, you’re seriously putting yourself at risk.
7. Safety switches on lighting circuits
these are mandatory on all newly built homes. If you have an older home, it’s a good idea to install them.
8. Safety switches on all final circuits
these are also mandatory on new homes. Safety switches truly save lives, so if your home doesn’t have them on all the above, it’s worth considering.
9. Cable quality
just like everything else, cable can become worn pver time and there have also been quite a few cable types that have been the target of product recalls in the past, so an inspection is worth its weight in gold. Let us check these for you!
10. Switchboard integrity
many things can affect the safety of your switchboard, from rust corrosion to water leakage, loose hinges and broken doors. These safety risks may pose a danger of electrocution or fire.
We’ll be able to check all of these dangers and advise you what (if anything) requires repair or replacement, what you can do in the meantime and what you can do to prevent issues in the future.
