Regular electrical maintenance for your home or business
Our electricians are often surprised how often repairs and electrical faults and down-time could have been avoided before they happen.
Think about taking a pre-emptive approach to your electrical infrastructure by simply arranging a scheduled maintenance visit to check your system, your home and business can avoid costly repairs or down-time!
How often should I get my electrical system at home checked?
Not surprisingly, the best time for your system’s check-up would be a month before you estimate an increase in your power usage. For instance, in Summer you’ll be relying on your air conditioning and fans a lot more, and in Winter you’ll be using your clothes dryers and heating. Why not schedule a yearly maintenance visit in April or October?
At Faraday, our electricians check for any signs of wear and tear, loose or worn connections, or potential hazards that could cause failure or safety issues. They can also test the performance of your electrical equipment, such as sockets, switches, and meter boxes to see if there are any spikes that could indicate a fault in the system.
You should also take immediate action if you’ve noticed any tell-tail signs such as flickering lights, power surges, or strange smells (such as burning!). If you do, it’s important that you call us, as our electricians are able to act quickly and prevent further damage, ensuring the safety of your home and family.
Why commercial buildings require more frequent electrical check-ups?
Well, there are a number of reasons:
- Commercial buildings often have more complex electrical systems compared to residential properties.
- They have higher electrical loads, multiple circuits, and a larger number of electrical equipment and devices.
- Commercial buildings often have higher occupancy rates and longer operating hours than residential homes. This means that the electrical systems in commercial buildings are subjected to greater wear and tear, and longer usage.
- Compliance with Australian electrical codes and safety standards are mandatory for commercial buildings. Regular check-ups by Faraday’s commercial electricians ensure that all electrical systems and components meet the necessary Australian standards, and helps protect the safety of employees, customers, and the building itself.
Depending on the size, nature and age of your electrical system, we recommend giving us a call to discuss the recommended scheduled testing and maintenance to suit your premises.
