Range Hood Installation

The kitchen environment can become odorous, muggy, greasy, and humid very quickly if the room doesn’t have proper ventilation in place. One of the most important aspects of the kitchen ventilation system is the range hood, which is placed directly above the stove and cooking area. At Quick Connect, we can carry out range hood installation and make sure your kitchen has good ventilation in place.

What does a range hood do?

The range hood has an internal fan and a filter in it; and it is positioned directly over the stove with enough clearance to allow you to cook without any obstacles. The fan draws all the heat, fumes, the moisture emitted during the cooking process and transports it away from your kitchen. This ensures the heat, grease, and odour from your cooking doesn’t spread throughout the house. If you don’t have the range, the grease and odours will cling to the kitchen walls, furniture, and installation, and eventually compromise the beauty of the room.

What’s involved in the range hood installation process?

Range hood installation can be quite complicated so it’s important to hire experienced professionals for the job, especially if you intend to replace your old hood with a new one. Inexperienced people often damage the surrounding areas because there’s a limited amount of space to work with. A professional installation is careful, thorough, and quick. Here’s a brief description of the professional installation process:

  • Buying the range hood – Professionals are familiar with different brands and their performance over time in real life. They can help you find a range hood that fits your budget, is of the right size, can blend in with your kitchen design, and offers a reliable performance. They’ll offer honest and unbiased advice on the range of products available so you can make the choice with your eyes open.
  • Removing the old hood – The next step is to remove the old hood and clean up the area for new installation. The technician will carefully disconnect all wires connected to the hood and remove it from its mount on the wall. They will also check if the vent opens at the right spot on the kitchen all to transport the air and smoke safely away from the kitchen environment.
  • Installing the new hood – Once they are certain the vent is located in the right place, they’ll carry on with the range hood installation process and carefully mount the new hood over the stove. They’ll make sure it’s in the right position and is properly anchored before they attach the wires to the electrical system and screw everything in place.

Electrical Rewiring

Electrical wires are usually hidden underneath the walls and are out of sight, which means most property owners don’t even realise they might be damaged until they experience a problem. Like all building materials, electrical wires also have a limited lifespan and can eventually become frayed or damaged over time. At Quick Connect, we encourage clients to inspect their electrical system regularly to ensure it’s in a good condition. If you find extensive damage in your system, you’ll have to rewire it.

What is electrical rewiring?

Electrical rewiring is replacing the old system of electrical wires with a new one. Electricians will replace old wires, fixtures, and every component of the system that’s unsafe or too damaged to provide smooth transfer of energy. While wires are designed to last for decades without problems, they do eventually wear down and become frayed. This can increase the risk of blackouts, surges, appliance damage, and even fire. Here are some things you need to consider with regards to electrical rewiring:

  • If your property is more than 20 years old, you need to carry out a thorough inspection and consider rewiring.
  • If you’re always relying on extension cords to supply power to different appliances and devices, you might need to consider rewiring and establish access points at better locations.
  • Most of your outlets are ungrounded and two-pronged.
  • If your property has old aluminium wiring instead of more secure and resilient copper wiring.
  • You have added new appliances or rooms that are a burden on the existing system.

It’s a good idea to get your current system inspected if any of the above mentioned points apply to you. A professional electrician will know how to examine the system thorough and determine if electrical rewiring is required.

What are the signs that you need rewiring?

Your electrical system will deteriorate naturally over time and provide ample warning before it’s too dangerous to use. Here are some signs that you need to look out for:

  • Tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses.
  • Over fused or over amped electrical panels in your property.
  • Wires and fixtures that are discoloured or have visible burn marks on them.
  • Frequent dimming or flickering of lights.
  • A burning smell.
  • Loose outlets that look like they’re about to fall out.
  • Wiring tears in exposed wires.
  • Buzzing or sizzling sounds coming from the electrical system.
  • Switches, boards, and sockets are hot to the touch.

If you see these signs, you need to ask a professional electrician to carry out electrical rewiring and ensure your system is undamaged and safe to use.

Why choose us?

  • Our company has been a part of this industry for over 10 years.
  • We are licensed and insured.
  • We offer honest and straightforward pricing so you don’t need to worry about hidden costs.

Data Cabling Installation

Almost everyone requires connection constant and reliable access to the Internet for their personal and professional tasks. For that, you need a properly installed data cabling system. At Quick Connect, we can install an organised and efficient data cabling system in your property. This system will be designed with your requirements in view and customised for your usage and setting.

What’s included in the data cabling installation process?

We have worked on several data cabling installation projects and understand how the process works well. Our goal is to install a system that’s durable, flexible, and can grow with your requirements over the years. The installation process includes:

  • Network planning – You want your data cabling to be discreet so it doesn’t disrupt the flow of design on your property. If the cabling isn’t installed in a planned and organised manner, it will be quite visible and that will have an impact on the overall beauty of your room. Installers will study your property carefully and plan the cabling installation based on the design of the room or building. They’ll ensure the access points are placed near devices that require connection and install cabling in areas where they’re less visible.
  • Access points – Most properties use Wi-Fi but even these hubs require well-placed internet access points. These access points should be within easy reach of the devices to minimise the amount of exposed cabling. For example, if you want to connect your smart TV to the internet, you need to make sure the access point is as close to the television as possible in order to get the best connection to the Internet.
  • Installing cable hubs – Cabling in large and complicated networks needs to be organised and consolidated in order to be manageable. Installers will add cable hubs to different areas of the system to ensure all the wiring is organised and repairs or replacements can be performed easily. This will help ensure the data cabling installation is systematic and there’s no tangled mess of wires left behind.
  • Equipment – The quality of the Internet depends largely on the quality of the wires because frayed and damaged wires can disrupt the flow of data. The access points and routers should also be of good quality in order to ensure there’s no disruption of data. A reliable installation service provider will purchase the right equipment and ensure all wires are of good quality to help preserve data integrity and flow.

Why choose us?

  • We have more than 10 years of experience in this industry and a solid customer base so you can rely on us to do a good job.
  • Our electricians and installers are licensed and well-trained.
  • Our pricing is honest and straightforward with no hidden costs.
  • We offer 100% customer satisfaction guarantee and  a money back workmanship guarantee.

The Importance of Regular Commercial Electrical Maintenance

As a commercial property owner, you make it a point to keep all the areas of your establishment in a good condition and ensure that all the amenities, features and installations are in state of good repair. Electrical maintenance is a very important part of the overall maintenance of any commercial building. A downtime on any of these installations or fixtures can result in loss of business and can impact your reputation.

On the other hand, when you make sure that all the electrical systems are maintained well by experts like the ones at Quick Connect Electrical you can rest assured that you will have fewer problems to deal with. Electrical installations have to endure a significant amount of wear and tear because they are used almost 24/7 in one way or the other, especially on commercial premises. In addition to lighting and HVAC systems, electricity is used for hot water, security alarms and CCTV installations as well as to power various equipment, devices and appliances.

The importance of regular electrical maintenance

In short, if anything goes wrong with the electrical installations that can cause considerable inconvenience to the people on the property and disrupt the workings of your business. However, when you opt for regular electrical maintenance, you can rest assured that the electricians you have hired for the job will come in at fixed intervals, through the year and carry out thorough inspections of all the electrical systems on your property.

Signs that You Need Light Switch Replacement

Every home and commercial establishment has light switches in every room. Today, we are dependent on electricity for a number of things and use a variety of appliances, gadgets, and devices that run on electricity. In addition to appliances such as washing machines, ovens, driers, dishwashers, toasters, grills, BBQs, we also need switches to operate fans, lights, air conditioners as well as a number of other things.

Different light switch problems

It goes without saying that in order to use all these devices, gadgets and appliances, we also need to make sure that all the switches are in a good condition. However, the fact is that the switches on our property see a significant amount of wear and tear and regular use results in deterioration. This makes it important to be aware of the signs of light switch problems. Some of the things we should be looking out for include:

  • Loose /jammed switches – If you find that any switches are loose or if the mechanism juts gets stuck and doesn’t work at all, don’t try to force the switch or try to push it in an attempt to fix it. It’s best to replace the damaged or malfunctioning switch entirely.
  • Circuit breaker trips– In some instances, you notice that as soon as you turn on a specific switch, a circuit breaker trips. Most people mistakenly believe that the switch is the culprit; but in this instance, it’s actually the circuit breaker that’s at fault and you would have to reset it and get it checked.
  • Flickering lights– In some cases, the lights may flicker when the bulb is loose in the holder and tightening the bulb will solve the problem. However there are times when the connection within the switch is damaged or has come loose and only replacing the switch will solve the problem.
  • Overheating switches– If you notice that some switches are hot to the touch or are emitting a buzzing ort hissing sound, it is an indication that the switch mechanism has deteriorated and the piece would have to be replaced.

Homeowners often feel that switch replacement isn’t very complex and that they would be able to handle the job themselves. But the fact is that it’s never a good idea to try to handle any kind of electrical job on your own. Always call in a skilled a licensed electrician for light switch installation and replacement.

We at Quick Connect Electrical are one of the leading companies in this space and know what it takes to provide excellent, customised services to our customers. We can provide you the type of services you need at very cost-effective pricing. To check if we serve your area, just enter your pin code in the box on the right of the page.

The Importance of Following a Detailed Fault-Finding Process

Electrical faults have the potential to cause extensive damage not just to the appliances in your home, but can prove to be a fire hazard as well. Most people aren’t even aware that they should be checking their electrical installations for faults; but this is a task you should make the time for. That is one of the best ways to catch issues early and you can quickly call in experts like us at Quick Connect Electrical to get the problem fixed. Electrical fault finding isn’t difficult if there is a very noticeable or evident problem. However, when it comes to certain installations like wiring etc. faults aren’t always apparent. It’s far better to call in experts to deal with the problem.

Common signs of electrical faults

While it’s never a good idea to try and fix electrical problems yourself, it’s important that you be aware of the signs of electrical faults. Here are some of the commonest ones:

  • Lights that either dim or flicker unexpectedly
  • Light switches are hot to the touch
  • You can hear buzzing or hissing noises in light switches or behind power points
  • You can feel a tingling sensation whenever you touch a power outlet or the outside of some light switches
  • Appliances don’t function as well as they should
  • You notice discolouration around the light switches or power points
  • The fuses and circuit breakers constantly blow

If you hire a licensed and experienced electrician to evaluate the electrical installations in your home, that becomes one of the most effective ways to detect faults in the system; its also the best way to avoid problems that can arise from having to deal with undiscovered electrical faults.

Fault finding and repairs begins with investigation

When we handle any type of fault finding, we adopt a very systematic approach to the process; this begins with getting information from you about the faults you have noticed or the areas you are facing problems with. The next step is to observe; if you feel that any piece of electrical equipment or appliance has a fault, the electrician would have to visit your home and determine what the cause of this problem is. In most instances, this will allow them to see what is wrong and what can be done to fix it.

We use specialised fault finding equipment to safely help with detecting problems in the electrical circuits. There are a number of different electrical problems that can arise in a home and only professional electricians can help with detecting and fixing them. It’s never a good idea to do any DIY electrical work as that can pose a risk of electrocution or fire. There can be a number of different causes of electrical problems on your property and we have the skill, experience and tools to identify what is wrong and fix the problem to your 100% satisfaction.

Things to Keep In View While Getting Commercial Lighting Installed

Things to Keep In View While Getting Commercial Lighting Installed

Most people spend long hours at their workplace; and if you are a business owner or a manager of a commercial premises, it’s crucial that you ensure the atmosphere is comfortable for the people working there as well as for people visiting your business. While it’s important to have well-designed and well-planned and well-maintained commercial spaces, it’s equally important to ensure that these areas have the right kind of illumination. Here are a few business lighting solutions that you should keep in view while planning the lighting for your business.

  1. Lighting Design

It’s crucial that the lighting design be planned well and for this you need to hire a skilled electrical company like us at Quick Connect Electrical that would be able to provide you some advice and ideas on how to make the lighting attractive and functional. If you have already hired the services of an interior designer to design and plan the indoor spaces, we would be able to work with this professional to ensure all the electrical installations and fittings are in line with the design and plan. Pay special attention to spaces that don’t have any windows and natural lighting; in addition to the ambient lighting in these spaces; position a few spot lights and more task lighting to counter the lack of natural light.

  1. Outdoor Lighting

If you are a business that operates even in the late hours of the evening and night, you would need to focus on the outdoor lighting as well. It’s important that the exterior of your commercial building and its immediate surroundings be well lit for customers that will be walking into your establishment at those hours. Not only will the right type of outdoor lighting add to the ambience of your property and attract customers to it, but will make the entry and exit points as well as the parking areas safer.

  1. Backup Power

Regardless of whether you have an office where a large number of computers are used and are critical for the working of your business, or are a retail or hospitality establishment, you would need to have some reliable backup power system. This would ensure your property has lighting even during a power outage and your business will continue working in an unhindered manner. The backup power can be used for operating computers and their peripherals and other important systems on your property.

Tips to Improve the Energy-Efficiency of Your Home

Whether you’re constructing a new home or remodelling or upgrading your existing one, it’s a good idea to get some energy-efficient features installed on your property. Electrical bills can run high in both the winter and summer months because you may use heating and cooling systems, hot water systems, indoor and outdoor lights right round the year. While most of these things help add to our comfort levels, we do end up paying a very a hefty utility bill at the end of the month.

The one way to curb this is to opt for various energy-efficient solutions such as LED bulbs, sensor lighting,-efficient shower heads and more. While all of these are important things, increasing the broader energy-efficiency of your home involves a number of other things too, such as:

  1. Proper home insulation

It’s important to insulate the topmost floor in your home as that reduces the amount of heat entering from the roof in the summer months. In the winter months, the insulation helps trap the warm air indoors. You can use various insulation options such a reflective foil, glass fibre batts and loose fill etc. The heat build-up in your ceiling cavity can be reduced even further by installing a good whirly bird on the roof.

  1. Cross ventilation is important

Many people make it a point to keep windows and internal doors or even the balcony, porch and patio doors open at least for some time during the course of the day and this helps cool the house to a certain degree during the summer months. If you are building your home, make it a point to discuss the possibility of cross-ventilation solutions with your builder. The different aspects you can incorporate are higher ceilings, wider hallways and properly positioned doors and windows; you can also include sliding stacker doors and bi-folds that help in air circulation.

As mentioned earlier add LED light fittings as these provide 80% more energy-efficiency than regular bulbs. It’s also a good idea to add more shutters, shades and blinds on windows on the western face of your home’s structure. Use electrical appliances & devices on your property more responsibly; as they account for about 20% of your energy bills. Purchase energy-rated home appliances as they consume much less energy than the standard ones. Install sensor lights that will get switched on and off only when someone enters or exits the room.

Electrical switch problems- and how to identify them

Electrical switches are a very important part of any electrical system and every home and commercial property will have a number of switches in the indoor and outdoor spaces. When you get good quality switches installed by experts, you generally don’t have to worry about problems arising very often. But these fittings are used almost on a daily basis which causes a lot of wear and tear and they can deteriorate over time.

Common problems with switches

If you hear crackling/popping or even hissing sounds coming from any switches in your home, these indicate there is a fault in the device. Leaving it that way will only cause it to deteriorate very quickly. It’s important that you call an expert electrician like the ones at Quick Connect Electrical  to attend to the problem without delay. In addition to the arcing sounds we just mentioned, there are a number of other indicators of switch-related problems such as:

  • Burning smells- when the contact points in the switches get heated up the various plastic parts begin to melt which results in the burning smells.
  • Lights flicker- If you notice that the lights in a particular room are flickering constantly, this indicates there could be a problem with the switches and a loose connection might be causing the problem.
  • Arcing- The buzzing and arcing sounds are very prominent when you switch on the lights.
  • Loose switches- If you notice a wiggle in the switches this could be caused by deterioration of the components.

While these are some of the common indicators of problems in electrical switches, it’s important to keep in view that many other electrical issues may also have similar problems.  For example, crackling sounds may be heard if the screw terminal’s wiring has come loose. If you have noticed any of these signs in any room in your house, call us without delay. We will inspect all the switches in that space and find out whether there is a problem with them or any of the other components of the system.

24/7 emergency electrical services

We are very methodical in our approach to the work and make sure that the testing is carried out using the most advanced tools and equipment. If we see any signs of a problem, you will be immediately informed about it and the problem can be fixed before it goes out of hand and turns into a more complex one. We provide emergency electrical services and are on call round the clock to provide you the solutions you need.

You only have to give us a call and we will come over to your location and fix the problem quickly and efficiently.

Electrical wire melt problems and why you need to fix them on time

Electricity is something we use day-in and day-out and a number of activities are dependent on it. We use it to illuminate our home’s indoor and outdoor spaces; it’s used to run our kitchen appliances, the washing machines and dryers and a number of electronic and electrical devices that we use in our homes. Even though we need electricity for so many things, we tend to take it for granted and don’t pay too much attention to it until something actually goes wrong with it.

Melted electrical wires- the causes

This is also often why most electrical problems seem like they have cropped up out of the blue. But the fact is that very few electrical issues are so sudden. There are always some signs of trouble that we tend to overlook. Electrical fires or leaks can be very dangerous and in some cases can result in fatalities as well. Many fires are caused by wire insulation melts as that leaves the wire exposed. There are a number of things that can cause electrical wiring to melt:

  • Arcing- The electromagnetic field that flows through the wires sometimes gets escalated and results in a power overload. This buildup can cause the insulation of the wiring to melt. If you hear any sizzling, crackling or buzzing sounds coming from the electrical points or wiring, you should get these checked by the professional electricians at Quick Connect Electrical.
  • Power overloads– If you live in an older property, the old wiring and electrical systems may not have the capacity to bear the power loads. In this case, the wiring may start to heat up and cause the insulation to melt when you operate heavy-duty appliances such as washing machines or ovens etc.
  • Short Circuits– If live wiring comes in contact with any neutral wire that can cause a short circuit. If this happens and the fuse connected to that circuit blows, it will disconnect the electrical supply. However, if this doesn’t happen, it can cause the wires to heat up which results in melted wires. 

Get electrical faults addressed on time

If you have noticed any arcing in your home, have found that electrical points are hot to the touch or notice burning smells coming from the electrical fixtures or wires in your home, call us without delay. We will provide you with a prompt response and quick and efficient electrical services. We never compromise on the quality of our work and make sure that the best materials and workmanship are used in every project. This ensures the longevity of the electrical fixtures in your home.
