LED Lighting

Today, when builders, developers, architects designers and even individual property owners are planning their home or commercial building projects, they look for ways and means to improve the energy-efficiency of their property. To this end, they create open floor plans, use energy-efficient and insulating building materials and make use of large glass windows and doors. The latter bring in more natural light which reduces the dependency on artificial light and adds to the structure’s energy-efficiency.

However, every home and commercial space will need a certain number of light fittings in the indoor and outdoor spaces. Using lights for extensive hours increases the electricity bills significantly. The one way to reduce the amount you spend on your monthly utility bills is to opt for LED lighting. We at Quick Connect Electrical have noticed a shift in the requirements of customers.

LED lighting- the benefits

Many clients that want new electrical installations specifically ask for energy-efficient fittings and when people are looking to upgrade electrical installations, they too prefer to switch to more energy-efficient options. LED lighting is the modern day option to traditional halogen and CFL fittings and there are a number of benefits to using these installations such as:

  • LED bulbs and fittings are compact and small; so they can easily fit into odd-shaped and tight spaces.
  • They lend sufficient illumination despite their small size
  • These bulbs use 85% of energy supplied to turn it into light; only 15% generates heat which makes the bulbs cooler to the touch. Since they emit less heat, they also reduce the stress on the HVAC systems on the property and help reduce energy bills.
  • LED bulbs are available in omnidirectional as well as one direction models; this makes them ideal for applications such as ambient and mood lighting as well as task lighting. These fittings can be used in combination to create the kind of look and ambience you want on your property.
  • LEDs start immediately once you switch them on, unlike CFL bulbs in which there is a delay in reaching full brightness.
  • They provide up to 50,000 hours of illumination which means they last 25 times longer than incandescent & halogen fittings and 3 times longer than standard CFLs.
  • LED bulbs are available in a variety of different colours, and you can use the ones you like to create the perfect lighting effect.

LED downlight installation

Many people install halogen downlights on their property and these lend a very unique and attractive look to the property. Downlighting is one of the techniques used in layered lighting and it’s a great way to highlight the beauty of textured walls, beautiful flooring and well-crafted furniture. It works well with other ambient lighting fixtures as well as spot lights and ceiling lights to illuminate indoor spaces and create the right ambience in your home or commercial property.

Downlights are also installed in alfresco areas, retaining walls and boundary walls as well as exterior walls of structures to add to the aesthetics of the space. But halogen lights emit heat along with the light and when you use them extensively, that also escalates your electricity bills significantly.

This is why we at Quick Connect Electrical recommend the use of LED downlights in the indoor and outdoor spaces of residential and commercial properties. We are a fully-licensed and insured company that has been operating in this space for over 10 years now and know what it takes to provide customers prompt, professional and high quality services. But in addition to providing high-grade solutions, we also focus on providing you value for money and solutions that will add to the energy-efficiency of your home and help reduce your utility bills. This is where LED downlight installations come into the picture.

The benefits of LED downlighting

  • LED lights are 80% more energy-efficient than standard bulbs and with regular use, you will find there is a significant drop in your electricity bills
  • These bulbs can provide up to 50,000 hours of illumination and can easily last for 10-15 years depending on the number of hours they are used per day.
  • Today, the best LED downlight fittings manufacturers launch products that are sleek and elegant and available in a range of colours. This gives you the design flexibility to create the kind of look you want on your property
  • Since they have such a long operational life, maintenance is easy
  • LED bulbs are highly eco-friendly as they do not contain any toxic materials
  • These bulbs are 100% recyclable, making them some of the most environment-friendly lighting options.

While the upfront cost of LED bulbs and fixtures is higher than traditional halogen and CFL bulbs, the former provide you value in the long term, which makes them extremely cost-effective.

Cost-effective LED donwlight installations

Regardless of how you look at it, LED downlight installations are a smart money saving choice. However, you need to hire experts for the job. We can provide you all the information you need about these downlights and handle the installation expertly and professionally.

3 Phase Power Installation

In Australia, the electricity distribution is done through 3 phases- the actives, neutral & earth ground. The neutral phase allows for a 3-phase supply that goes out at a steady voltage. This electricity is then supplied to groupings of multiple residential properties; all of which have a single phase loads. The arrangement of the connections is such that within each group, equal amounts of power get drawn from every phase; which helps balance currents within the distribution system.

3 Phase power applications

Most individual homes have single phase electrical supply. But businesses that operate a number of a heavy appliances and machinery require 3-phase power installation. In many ways, this type of power becomes a crucial aspect of the industry as it is a much more efficient and effective way of supplying power to heavy machinery. It helps balance the heavy incoming electrical loads and reduces the stress on your property’s electrical system; which in turn adds to the safety and efficiency of your business.

The 3-phase installation work process

If you are getting a 3-phase power system installed on your premises, you need to hire a licensed and experienced company like Quick Connect Electrical for the job. When you call us with your requirement, we send a team of expert electricians for a comprehensive site inspection; they will ascertain whether you require a completely new electrical system or an upgrade to 3-phase power.

Switchboard Upgrades

Older homes with older electrical systems have fuse boxes instead of modern switchboards. They’re not quite as secure or reliable as switchboards with circuit breakers, which is why it’s a good idea to upgrade your system and ensure it’s up to modern standards. Older homes often need a complete rewiring and switchboard upgrades if they’ve been built more than 20 years ago. At Quick Connect, we have handled a number of switchboard installations in the past and understand the process well.

Why do you need a switchboard upgrade?

One can never be too careful when it comes to electrical systems because there’s always a chance of electric shock or a fire hazard if the system isn’t properly installed or maintained. If your electrical system is up to modern standards and all wires and boards are of good quality, you’ll experience fewer electrical problems and won’t have to deal with damaged devices and appliances.

  • Short circuits – Older switchboards, especially ones with fuse boxes, are particularly vulnerable to short circuits so you’ll experience them more often.
  • Electrical shocks – These boards are more likely to cause electrical shocks and even start fires, especially if the wires leading up to the board are also damaged and frayed.
  • Modern electrical demands – Electrical systems that were installed more than 20 years ago aren’t always capable of handling the demands of modern appliances and devices safely. Appliances like computers, vacuum cleaners, coolers, dryers, washing machines, etc.  require a more sophisticated electrical system.
  • Power tripping – Frequent power tripping is an indication that your system can’t keep up with the demands of different appliances and devices in your property. If you experience it, you need switchboard upgrades.
  • Lights flickering – This is also an indication that your switchboard needs to be upgraded and your wires need to be examined. A dated and damaged electrical system won’t provide sufficient power or an uninterrupted flow of electricity to your light fixtures, which will lead to flickering.

Modern switchboards also allow you the option of shutting the system down in case of emergencies, which isn’t present in older fuses. For example, if you experience a flood and need to cut power in order to keep your home safe, you can simply switch it off in a modern switchboard.

Modern switchboards are also well-designed and can be flush against the wall surface, which fits in with the modern aesthetic. Older boards are bulky and stand out like a sore thumb, especially in minimalist modern designs.

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.

  • We have over 10 years of experience.
  • Our company is licensed and insured.

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.
  • $0 call out fee.
  • Our company provides customer satisfaction guarantee and money back workmanship guarantee.

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.
