Electrical Safety Service
Old Switchboard, Wiring & Appliances
HOME OVER 25 YEARS OLD
High power bill? Safety switch tripped lately?
Electrical fires are surprisingly common and a very real but hidden risk if you live in a house with old or unprotected wiring. Councils across Adelaide publish warnings about older homes having outdated electrics which are considered to be below acceptable safety standards. Heavy electrical use over winter and summer can inflict significant damage to old circuits and components. It time to switch thinking ‘on’ about electrical safety.

The molten switchboard adjacent was replaced by our technicians last month. Unnoticed electrical faults from faulty circuit breakers along with loose & rodent chewed cables can quickly turn into an inferno as flames travel up wall cavities or into roof spaces. Don’t let this happen to you. SWITCH THINKING

Sharpe Accredited Technician Aaron says you should have at least two Safety Switches on a switchboard. For the best possible protection, you should have a maximum of two circuits for one safety switch. Having too many connected to one device decreases the operational performance of the switch and could put you at risk in the rare event that one fails.
Many members of the public are unaware of the potential damage they can do to their electrical circuits by using too many powerboards. Solve your powerboard problem by talking to Sharpe about installing additional powerpoints around the home. Don’t forget that the latest double powerpoints now come with the convenience of combined USB chargers.

Our electricians are worried by the lack of surge arrestors at homes in Adelaide. This is a significant risk, especially if you’ve got solar panels or installed new air conditioning but haven’t upgraded the electrics. Power surges can easily damage appliances, wiring and are dangerous for anyone living in your home. Make sure you have adequate surge arrestor protection and ensure your solar system regularly serviced by an accredited electrician.
