Do you really need surge protection?

Do you really need surge protection?

Electricity is something we can’t do without in our homes. We use a variety of electrical devices, large appliances as well as electrical fixtures, HVAC systems, heaters and more. Even though it is so important, we tend to take electricity for granted, and really ever of focus on regular maintenance all for various electrical installations on a property.

It is important to understand the electricity can be very harmful and can cause electrocution or fire without the right kind of protection. This is where a surge protection devices come into the picture. We at Quick Connect Electrical provide excellent surge protection installation solutions to both, residential as well as commercial properties.

Why you need surge protection

In typical homes, the value of electrical equipment and electronics has significantly increased. But these systems are extremely sensitive and vulnerable to electrical surges caused by lightning. While the circuit breakers and fuses will provide AC protection, these aren’t sufficient when it comes to providing total protection. Electrical surges can be caused by:

  • Lightning strikes
  • Problems transformers close to your home
  • Upgrade to the power grid by the Utility Provider

Whenever there is a surge, it lasts for just a few seconds. However, the damage it causes, can be extremely costly. In certain cases, you are able to seek compensation from insurance companies, but that may not always be the case. Most homeowners today protect crucial electronics such as home theater systems, video equipment, etc. using surge strips. But expensive large appliances such as washers, dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, air conditioners, computers that etc. also need proper surge protection.

Types of surge protection

It just isn’t practical to buy individual surge protectors for every single electronic device and appliance in your home. This is where full house surge protectors come into the picture. These devices are connected to the electrical mains in your home and provide complete surge protection for all the circuits connected to them. You can also opt for devices such as:

  • Wall outlet surge protectors
  • UPS surge protectors

Light Switch Problems and How to Fix Them

Light switches are integral to all electrical installations on both commercial as well as residential properties. They are required to controlled all the electrical appliances, devices, and fixtures. Any malfunction in the switches can also impact the integrity of the electrical features they control.

In situations such as these, replacement becomes the only option. This job should always be handled by a licensed electrical professional.
  • Fuse burnout or circuit breaker problems- There are times when the problems aren’t with the actual light switch, but with the fixture that the switch is connected to. This makes it very important to ensure that you are checking what the root cause of the problem is before attempting to carry out any repair work. Electrical jobs should always be left to professionals and you can call us to inspect the installation to determine what the problem is
  • Flickering lights­- Sometimes, flickering off lights is caused due to loose bulb fixtures, when they aren’t connected properly to their sockets. This problem can be easily fixed by this tightening the bulb. However, if the flickering continues after you have done this they could be a problem with the light switch installation itself. Call an electrical expert to get the problem checked.
  • Overheating of switches- There are times when dimmers and control switches overheat or the start to emit buzzing sounds where they are in use.

All About Motion Sensor Lights

Sensor lights are a great addition to any home and these are a security lighting feature.  It’s always a good idea to have security lighting installations on your property. They help keep the exterior spaces of your property well-lit and safe. But keeping these lights switched on right through the night can also increase your electricity bills. The one way to overcome it is to get sensor lighting installed.

Sensor light installation

These lights have motion sensors on them and need to be installed at strategic points on your property such as the entryways, porches, patio, poolscape, deck and any other areas that are entry points to your house. The lights connected to the motion sensors get switched on the minute they sense movement within a specific area. This acts as a deterrent to burglars and vandals and increases the security levels of your property. We at Quick Connect Electrical have handled a large number of sensor light installations for customers across Sydney and cater to residential as well as commercial customers.  Our licensed electrician in Sydney team can handle all types of electrical jobs big and small.

Sensor lighting benefits

Let’s take a detailed look at all the benefits of sensor lighting:

  • As mentioned earlier, these lights help save energy and are a great way of reducing the burden on the environment. These lights get switched on only when someone is in the area. So if you get these installed on your patio or deck they will get switched off once you move out of range. You can end up saving a significant amount of money in the long term.
  • You need to have properly-illuminated outdoor spaces in order to move around without tripping or bumping into any hardscaping and that’s when sensor lighting comes into the picture. They help prevent trip and fall injuries and are a great installation to have especially if there are kids or pets in your home.
  • In some settings, there isn’t sufficient space to install switches easily or the area may be too dark to locate the switch quickly. Sensor light installations become a great option in situations such as these.

Since there are a number of different products available on the market, our team will provide you all the information you need about these fixtures.

Switchboard Upgrades- When Do You Need Them?

If you’re moving into a new home, or aren’t sure if your existing home has a modern electrical switchboard, it’s a good idea to call the experts at Quick Connect Electrical to inspect the system and provide custom solutions. Most people don’t realise that getting the switchboard updated is one of the most important things to do with reference to the safety of your family and home. Here are three reaaons why you should consider getting your switchoard upgraded without dealy:

  1. Australian Electrical Standards Require You to Have Safety Switches

Australian Electrical Standards are constantly reviewed & updated to comply with all the modern day electrical usage, demands and safety. The latest electrical standards require that all power & lighting circuits need to have safety switches installed to prevent electrical hazards in your home. These devices very quickly switch off the power supply to your property in case an electrical fault is detected.

While circuit breakers & fuses can protect the switchboard against electrical overloads, a safety switch can protect your life and property, disconnecting the power in about 0.03 seconds if an electrical current is detected. If you haven’t got your switchboard updated recently, you might at risk and should consider calling in a professional electrician to inspect the system and fix the problem. Contact a licensed electrician in Sydney today for a quote. Take a look at when you would need a switchboard upgrade:

  1. An older switchboard can’t handle modern day power demands

Older switchboards were designed to handle the appliances that existed at that point of time such as small kitchen appliances, a washing machine, small fans etc. But today, every home has a large number of larger appliances and devices that require higher power. This, in combination with dated wiring, can result in hazards such as electrical shocks. These are responsible for about 300 hospitalisations and 15 deaths and in Australia annually.

  1. Fire risk

Older switchboards that rely solely on fuses and replaceable wires can pose a significant fire risk. If your home has an older switchboard and you regularly experience blown fuses, this is usually caused by excessive power demands from the modern heavy-duty appliances mentioned above. The main problem is that the more a fuse blows, the higher the impact on the circuit breaker. It becomes less effective at doing its job which can eventually result in an overload in the system.

Electrical overloads in older switchboards can lead to reduced capacity for safety, causing the switchboard parts to overheat and melt and eventually catch fire. The best way to find out whether your switchboards are updated is to call us to get the system assessed.

Quick Connect Electrical can provide excellent switchboard upgrade services, all-round electrical installation, repair and installation solutions and 24/7 emergency services at very cost-effective pricing.

Common Light Switch Problems

Not all light switch issues need the assistance of a licensed Sydney electrician. Often, the primary reason why light switches don’t work is that the light bulb is busted. However, there are some instances in which simple switch malfunctions can result in devastating consequences such as house fires. Here, we discuss some of the commonest problems that homeowners complain about & encounter when it comes to light switch features.

  1. Broken or damaged light switches mechanisms

This is one of the commonest light switch problems that people face. If you find that the light doesn’t get switched off or on regardless of how much you flick the switch, it means the mechanism inside is broken. If the toggle or switch doesn’t stay in place any longer, it means you need to replace the unit.  It’s never a good idea to handle switch replacements yourself. Call the experienced Light switch installation experts at Quick Connect Electrical for the job. We have come across several instances where homeowners experience an electrical shock or get burned while replacing light switches by themselves.

  1. Circuit breaker trip or fuse burnout

A trip in some circuit breaker or a fuse burnout can cause problems in your light switches. If you are experiencing switch problems, purchasing new switches shouldn’t be your first option. It’s important that you inspect the circuit breaker or fuse first to identify whether it has tripped or gotten burned out. If the problem lies at this point, replacing the fuse can solve the problem.

  1. Lights flickering

One major problem that gets homeowners worried is when the lights begin to flicker as soon as the flip a switch. In most instances, this is caused by a loose fitting bulb, and tightening it solves the problem. However, if the flickering doesn’t stop with this fix, a loose wire under the cover or switch plate may be causing the problem. An electrician from our company can identify and resolve this problem. You should never ignore or defer fixing it because the bare or loose wiring can result in electrical accidents and sometimes even house fires.

  1. Glowing switches, buzzing or overheating

It is quite normal for a dimmer switch to make a buzzing sound or heat up when in use and you shouldn’t be alarmed by these symptoms.  However, if you’re using a standard toggle switch, the heating up/glowing/buzzing of the switch are signs that the breaker is overloaded or there is a loose wire somewhere. In this case, it’s best to call us in to fix the problem.

In addition to light switch installation services, we also handle all type of regular residential and commercial electrical jobs. Quick Connect Electrical can provide excellent all-round electrical installation, repair and installation solutions and 24/7 emergency services at very cost-effective pricing.
