It can be hard to know what to ask when your appliances, air conditioning, hot water system, smoke alarm, and other electric systems start playing up. That’s why we’ve answered a few common questions about electrics and repairs. To get a quote, or for the answers to any other questions you have, contact us today.
If your power keeps tripping, it’s likely that there’s an overload on the system. Start by unplugging all lights and appliances in the affected area, including things like dishwashers, cooktops or rangehoods.
Then, flip the safety switch in your circuit box to reset the power (you may have to do this a second time). If power appears to return, go along and plug in and turn on each appliance one by one, trying to identify what is tripping the switch.
If everything plugs back in as normal but the power continues to trip, there’s likely to be larger underlying problems, and you should call us.
For starters, doing your own electrical work is illegal. This includes installing new power points, replacing light switches, repairing appliances, installing ceiling fans, and internal wiring.
On top of that, trying to do your own electrical work is highly dangerous. You might think you know exactly what you’re doing, but the risk for untrained people doing their own repairs is very high.
For any and all electrical repairs and installations, please call us today.
Smoke alarms need to be regularly maintained for the safety of your family and your home. Our technicians are qualified to make sure your smoke alarms will go off when you need them to for your peace of mind.
As a matter of fact, you can. With lighting comprising of up to 15% of the average household electricity bill now, it can make quite a difference to switch to energy-efficient bulbs.
These bulbs come in 2 categories—light emitting diodes (LEDs) and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs). LEDs and CFLs use markedly less energy than incandescent bulbs while still managing to have a longer life than their predecessors.
The best part is these energy efficient lightbulbs can be easily found in supermarkets and hardware stores.
