It’s fair to say that the law is relatively black and white when it comes to Do It Yourself electrics on the Sunshine Coast. In essence, if the job entails much beyond changing a light bulb, then it needs to be carried out by a licensed trades person. Just to give you a further idea, here are 5 occasions when you really do need to be hiring an electrical contractor.
Home wiring for a new construction
If you’re fortunate enough to be building your own home then an experienced electrical contractor can work with your builder to create a plan that works for you and one that provides sufficient and adequate electricity throughout your new home. This could include telephone wiring, data cabling, and security system cabling too.
Revamping old wiring
If you’re looking to modernise your home and need to put in extra plug points or upgrade your existing electrical supply then this is the perfect time to contact an experienced electrical trades person who can come and do the work. You may even want to increase the electrical capacity of your home to make it fit with modern day living and the right electrical contractor will be able to help with all of this.
Falling trees, broken fence panels, or major gusts of wind can cause damage to the exterior of your home resulting in a loss of power. If the problem isn’t that the trip switch has done its job and…well…tripped, then it’s definitely a job for a licensed electrical engineer. The problem mightn’t be as simple as you think so call in the experts and leave it to them.
Upgrading your lighting
Whether you’re installing the latest recessed, track, or outdoor lighting then an experienced electrical engineer should be able to carry out the work quickly, safely, and cost-effectively. They can also provide suggestions and solutions which you may not have even thought about.
Finally, if you notice problematic signs that might mean that you have faulty wiring such as lighting that constantly dims, plugs that get hot, charring around plug points or frayed wiring, then it’s well worth calling an electrical engineer to investigate the problem. They will know just where to look and therefore can get to the root cause of the problem quickly without it costing you the earth.
