Why electrical maintenance is important

Residential Electrical Services

Every home and business needs electricity, which is why regular maintenance & upkeep is so important.

Your car requires regular servicing to keep it running smoothly. In a similar way, regular electrical maintenance is important as it provides an opportunity to catch any issues before they become a real problem, such as nuisance tripping or in more extreme cases- fire.

Make sure that your wiring, outlets, switches, lights & switchboards are all working as they should! Most people think that as long as their lights & powerpoints work that there are no issues, but there could be some underlying problems.


How often should you get an electrical maintenance inspection?

It is recommended to call a professional electrician every three to five years. Many issues can go undetected to the untrained eye; so, it is critical to have a professional electrician go over your house or business.

You should get an inspection when:

  1. You have an older home or business. Wiring and fuses can wear out over time, and this can affect older properties.
  2. If you have experienced any extreme weather. Storms and bad weather can damage your electrical system and lead to problems later on.
  3. Before you buy a new property. It is strongly advised that also have an electrician check over any property you are committed to purchasing.
