Is your home safe from electrical hazards?

Homes with cracked or faulty outlets, seizing safety switch buttons or malfunctioning smoke alarms are unsafe and overdue for electrical maintenance.

1. Have you had safety switches installed?

Safety switches (RCDs) are lifesaving devices that shut off power to faulty appliances within a fraction of a second. If your home only has one (or none!) we strongly recommend two safety switches – one for power points and another for your light circuit. Safety switches are required by law in Queensland rentals and new builds.

2. Does your home still have halogen lighting?

Halogen lights are inefficient, dangerous and have not been preferred since 1992. They are a common cause of house fires when not properly installed. If your home has halogen oyster lights or downlights we recommend replacing these with LED lights – they are safe, more reliable and cost less to run.

3. Do you have the safest smoke alarm protection?

The best smoke alarm protection for fires is the interconnected photoelectric smoke alarm system in bedrooms and hallways. Queensland is leading the way for smoke alarm safety. By 2022 these systems are required in all dwellings leased and sold and in 5 years time all homes will be expected to have them.
If your smoke alarms are over 10 years old or if they are constantly set off by insects our Townsville electricians can install the right smoke alarm system for our climate.

4. Are any of your outlets or switches cracked?

Faulty outlets, cracked power points, wonky light buttons can have exposed electrical components, which can electrocute you. These seemingly minor issues should not be overlooked as they can worsen over time.
