Most people aren’t aware that electricity is one of the main causes of fires on commercial as well as residential properties. Home-related electrical accidents aren’t as uncommon as people believe them to be. Modern homes have a large number of electrical appliances and devices and we depend on these to provide us the convenience and comfort we need.
For example, even up until a decade ago, most homes in Australia had only one radio and one TV, but all of that has now changed; and on an average most homes now have a minimum of two TVs. Home theatre systems are common as are gaming consoles, almost every room has air conditioning units and most homes have many large appliances too; computers, laptops, music systems… the list is almost endless.
This also significantly increases the risk of electrical fires. This is why it’s crucial to ensure that you get the electrical system in your home frequently inspected for defects, deterioration or damage. This electrical health check should be conducted at least once a year or more if you feel that something is amiss. When a potential electrical problem is caught early, it helps prevent any major problems in the future. Very importantly, it can help prevent the break out of an electrical fire that can cause extensive damage to your property and pose a risk to the lives of you and your family members.
Vital electrical checks
Just as you get your vehicle inspected and serviced regularly, it’s crucial that the electrical system in your home be inspected with regularity. Old sockets, plugs, outdated wiring and flexible cables can all cause damage to your property or also result in electrical shock. While it’s best to hire skilled professionals like the ones at Quick Connect Electrical for the job, there are some basic checks you can do as well, such as:
- Check all the sockets and plugs for arcing sounds
- Check these installations for burn marks
- If you find that the circuit breakers are tripping too often that can mean there is excessive load on the electrical system.
- Check electrical cables for wear and tear and get them replaced without delay
- If you experience shock when you touch any appliance or electrical device call us in to get it checked
