Wiring safety for your Holland Park home
Safety is the most critical aspect of any home wiring system.
Ensure your home has safe wiring by arranging for an electrical safety inspection—the age of the wiring matters.
For example, suppose the house is more than 25 years old. In that case, the electrical wiring needed for lights, cooking, and other electrical appliances can potentially be unsafe, as the wiring can deteriorate with age or may not be up to the demands of a modern household.
Electrical home safety inspections should be performed when you buy or sell a home. It will identify any repairs that need to be done by a licensed electrician (never do electrical work yourself). In addition, the report provided with the inspection will indicate the overall condition of your wiring and record any deficiencies following the Electricity Safety Act.
Update Your Holland Park home’s switchboard
A breaker panel is a unit that distributes electricity in your home.
It is usually located behind an electrical panel in a central location in your home.
It takes mains electricity from the power grid and distributes it to different places in the house.
Modern switchboards have safety switches that protect the house. The safety switch shuts off the panel when it is overloaded. However, older boards may not have safety switches and fire hazards.
What is a safety switch?
Safety switches are an inexpensive way to protect people in your home from electrocution. They are also called RCD’s.
They are specifically designed to prevent injury or death by automatically cutting off power when faulty switches, wiring or appliances are used. Evidence suggests that safety switches can prevent up to 90% of fatal accidents.
By law, safety switches must be installed to protect electrical outlets and lighting circuits in all new homes and buildings where circuits are modified or added.
How can you tell if you have a safety switch or not?
First, take a look at your switchboard (which is usually located near your electric meter) and look for a control with a “test” button next to it.
If you don’t have this switch, you probably don’t have a safety switch installed, and you’ll need a licensed electrician to install one.
If you buy a home in Holland Park that doesn’t already have a safety switch installed, you must have one installed within three months of purchasing the property.
Looking for a qualified, licensed Holland Park electrician?
Some Australians are a bit blase regarding electrical work around the house. Many people think they can DIY and fix a few loose wires.
But, apart from being illegal, electrical work done by amateurs is hazardous.
In Queensland, a Certificate of Testing and Compliance is required for electrical installations. In all cases, the regulation is the same: a licensed electrician must provide a Certificate of Electrical Safety.
The electrician is responsible for compliance for a reasonable period. In most states and territories, they must keep their certificate for at least five years.
Do not attempt to do electrical work yourself under any circumstances. It’s simply not worth the risk.
