D.I.Y Vs calling an electrician

D.I.Y is great for putting up shelves, but when it comes to electrical work – leave it to the professional electricians in Sydney – electricity kills, it is as simple as that. There are people out there who think they can do electrical work around their home but if you get it wrong, it can cause a lot of problems – just don’t do it!

How often should I get my electrical wiring looked at or replaced?

If you have new wiring in your home then it shouldn’t need to be looked at for years as its new wiring and it has been designed to last for years. However it’s often not the wiring that needs to be checked, but the connections – this is where problems can occur. There is a thing known as a *hot join* this means if you have a switchboard with a cable in it, but the connection between the two isn’t good it can become a *hot join* and this is where a fire will start. At Electrician To The Rescue we recommend you have it checked every year – it could save your life.
