Electrical Health Check

It’s crucial to know the electrical safety of a property you are purchasing

If you are on the cusp of buying a home it is important to know if the property you are purchasing is electrically safe and if there are any upgrades required to its electrical system. Mountain Man Electrical can help you undertake your due diligence with an electrical health check, which can be highly valuable in your negotiations. An electrical health check will provide you with a written and photographic report of the age, condition and safety of the current electrical system and make recommendations.

You can take the time to discuss your future energy requirements with our licensed electricians to determine how and if this system needs upgrading in the future should you proceed with the purchase.

In Queensland property sales are based on the premise buyer-beware. It is up to you, the buyer, to thoroughly investigate the property you are seeking to purchase.

Why are Electrical Health Checks important?

As your trusted local electrician, we understand the importance of Electrical Health Checks for your safety and peace of mind. These checks help to identify potential hazards in your electrical system that could pose a risk to your safety or damage your property. From damaged wiring to faulty equipment or overloaded circuits, our licensed electricians will detect these issues early on and can book you in to make the necessary repairs or upgrades to prevent accidents from occurring.

In addition to ensuring your personal safety, Electrical Health Checks are crucial for ensuring your electrical equipment meets all relevant regulations and requirements in your local area. This compliance is essential for homeowners and business owners to avoid costly penalties and fines. Non-compliance can affect your insurance, the sale of a house and is a legal requirement in rentals. It is equally important to potential home buyers who wish to be made aware if they need to budget for a full or partial rewire after purchase to ensure their home is safe, efficient and up to regulation. 

Additionally, well-maintained electrical equipment is more energy-efficient, helping you save money on your electricity bills.

Electrical Health Checks in older homes

If your house is more than 30 years old or you are about to purchase a house more than 30 years old we strongly recommend an Electrical Health Check as a myriad of issues could be hiding in the walls and ceiling. 

An electrical health check can save your home from any potential electrical fire hazards such as homes that have exposed wiring, wiring chewed by rats, or deteriorated cables such as the vulcanised Indian rubber, now understood to be extremely dangerous. In many older homes our licensed electricians have alerted home-owners and potential home-owners to potential electrocution hazards such as cracked switches and outlets, homes that do not have the recommended safety circuits or life-saving technology such as residual current devices (RCDs) which shut down the power within milliseconds when a fault is detected. We will identify smoke alarms that are not working or are out of date, the presence of halogen lighting and much more. 

Our Process

It’s important to remember that only a person with an appropriate electrical work license should conduct an Electrical Health Check. Our licensed electricians have the training and qualifications necessary and will perform the following to ensure your electrical equipment is safe for use:

1. Inspection and testing

Our licensed electrician will thoroughly inspect your electrical equipment, including power points, light switches, and light fittings. Using specialized tools, they will also test your electrical system's power, voltage, and current.

3. Repair or replace

If any electrical equipment is found to be faulty during the inspection, our electrician will compile a quote for repair or replace it as required.

2. Safety switches

Our electrician will test and inspect all safety switches in your electrical system to ensure they work correctly. Each safety switch is crucial for preventing electric shocks and fires, so it's essential to ensure that they are in good condition.

Comprehensive report

After the inspection and testing, we will provide you with a detailed report that outlines the condition of your electrical equipment, any faults that were found, and any recommended repairs or upgrades.
