The best protection against electrocution, fire, and electrical damage is an electrical system that’s healthy, regularly inspected and rigorously-maintained by a professional
As part of Plateau Electrical’s focus on the safety of the Northern Beaches and North Shore, we offer an obligation free safety inspection on all our jobs.
We are more than happy to take you through our findings and explain any potential hazards as well as things to look out for in the future as potential problems, and discuss the best possible way to rectify these issues.
Our team of qualified electricians bring a wealth of experience to your electrical safety inspection. We come from a background of large, industrial-scale electrical jobs.
Not only are these jobs considerably more complex, but they’re also a lot more dangerous, necessitating even stricter safety measures – measures which we bring into your home electrical safety check.
Home electrical safety inspection checklist
These are some of the most important safety features we look at when we come to your home.
As part of your electrical safety inspection, our electricians will take a look at your home’s electrical wiring, paying particular attention to connections and electrical insulation to ensure that everything is in good condition and that there are no breaks or other issues.
While your circuits may appear to be fine, they could be hiding all sorts of issues just underneath the surface.
Our electricians will take a look “under the hood”, inspecting not only the condition of your sockets and plugs, but also the state of their in-built safety measures such as RCBO safety switches.
In many cases, light fixtures will only be able to handle a certain wattage. To ensure your safety, you’ll need to ensure that the bulbs you choose fall within that safe range.
If you’re unsure about this, our team of electricians can check out your lighting and determine whether or not it’s safe to keep on using, as well as suitable alternatives.
In addition to your main electrical circuits, certain high-wattage appliances or high-demand rooms will have their very own electrical circuits.
Our team can inspect and evaluate the condition of each of these circuits, ensuring that they’re capable of handling your electrical requirements and that more importantly, they’re safe and fit-for-purpose.
Your switchboard is one of the most important parts of the electrical safety equation, responsible for shutting off the flow of power in the event that something goes wrong.
For complete peace-of-mind, it’s imperative that you call a professional to check your switchboard and ensure that it’s ready to spring into action to protect you and your home.
Smoke alarm testing
We can inspect both battery-powered and hardwired smoke alarms, keeping you safe in the event of a fire and making sure your home meets Australian regulations.
We offer installation, inspection, testing, and replacement of all your smoke alarms to ensure your home and family has the best protection possible should a fire occur.
If you’re buying an old house, you’ll want to first make sure that its electrical circuits, wiring and sockets are still safe to use.
Give us a call before your settlement, and we’ll perform an in-depth, top-to-bottom pre-purchase electrical inspection so you can understand the current condition of the home, and what fixes may be required.
Our inspection service will ensure that all appliances, devices, and installations are safe for use.
If we find any hazards or potential issues, we’ll let you know how they are best rectified, to ensure you can comfortably continue using appliances without the risk of injury or danger.
