The electrical system in your house has a number of components and fixtures and the workings of each one of them is dependent on the other. While most of the features in a home do get maintained on a regular basis, people rarely focus on hiring the services of a Residential Electrician in Sydney to maintain the electrical installations on their property.  People also tend to ignore early signs of electrical problems and are then surprised when they are faced with an electrical emergency.

The simple fact is that all the electrical fittings and fixtures are used very regularly and this also means they have to withstand a considerable amount of wear and tear. It’s common for electrical switches to get worn down over time and the connections may become loose as well. When that happens the; hissing or crackling sounds emerge from them, when the switches are being turned off or on.

This is called arcing and if you notice any such signs, it’s important that you contact a 24 Hour Electrician in Sydney without immediately to attend to the issue. Sometimes the loose connections may also result in heat in the wiring and this causes the insulation to melt which in turn results in a burning smell.  These are the common signs of problems in electrical switches.

The other signs to look out for are:

  • Lights flicker in a room or a certain area of the house
  • You can hear arching sounds when you turn on switches
  • The switches are loose
  • Discolouration around switches and powerpoints

The other thing to keep in view is that there are a number of other electrical issues that show the same signs and only an expert Local Electrician in Sydney would be able to inspect the system and identify what is causing the arcing or burning smells. It’s important that you get the electrical installations in your home inspected on a regular basis and make electrical maintenance a part of regular home maintenance.

Very happy with the great service and professionality! Mohammed was very patient and meticulous, going (quite literally) above (our deck's roof) and beyond to find and fix problems with some existing bad wiring. Explained all the problems in a very clear and informative way. Would highly recommend this service to friends and family!

"I would highly recommend Karl and his team for any work his professionalism and dedication to his work is remarkable.

We are currently building a 225sqm complex extension in Strathfield and he has continuously offered great advice on how to proceed with all things electrical from led lights and power points to HDI cables for the TV. He has always been on time and has gone above and beyond expectation. He and his team even worked 10hrs on a day that was 45 degrees. Once again I would highly recommend Karl"
