Should I call a Perth Electrician or can I do it myself?
When it comes to conducting electrical work around your home, the answer is no, call an experienced Perth Electrician. Australian Law is precise and whether it be residential, commercial or industrial, an experienced Perth Electrician must conduct the work. Each state varies in regards to the details of this regulation but the general outline defines work on any electrical equipment including:
- Testing and Tagging
- Electrical Maintenance
- Removing or Replacing Electrical Equipment
- Alterations or Electrical Repairs
- Installation of Electrical Equipment
Ensuring to be safe around electricity is very important in your home, especially if children are in the house. Ignoring electrical safety can have disastrous consequences if you don’t ensure your home is protected. Being cautious of common signs of electrical faults and ensuring electrical safety precautions are in place can reduce the risk of fire or even injuries from faulty electrical wiring or appliances. An electrical fire can occur simply from a wire overheating due to it being connected to something that draws a great current.
DIY maintenance can be expensive!
Any electrical work around your home is still against the law even if you feel comfortable and confident about electrical wiring and conducting certain electrical services. You can even find yourself in trouble with your insurance provider if you take matters into your own hands. Your insurer has the right to refuse electrical claims for accidents resulting from DIY electrical works you have conducted.
Another thing to consider is that all electrical work requires a compliance certificate from a fully qualified and licensed Perth electrician so you may find these DIY jobs could even leave you in a difficult position when you try to sell your house. This can be due to DIY electrical works seem to work well at first but can cause faults in the long term that require emergency attention. This can be due to the quality of work and lack of knowledge of electrical repair and maintenance. Even faults can arise from overloading circuits or electrical wires can deterioration to overheating.
