Does my home electrical system need to be maintained?

Why you should have your wiring checked

Just as you get your car regularly maintained, it’s a good idea to have your home wiring checked. This is because bad electrical wiring, if left unchecked, can be a danger to the safety of your home. It’s a good idea to have your wiring checked if you live in an older home, especially if there’s been any renovations. You need to be sure any wiring that may have been changed was carried out safely and professionally.

You may not think it, but light switches, powerpoints and light sockets are usually the most over used devices in your home. Switches are turned off and on hundreds of times every day and power points have plugs either permanently left in, or power cords plugged in and removed regularly. Over time, these switches, sockets and power points can become worn out and damaged.

At Electrician To The Rescue all our sparkies are fully licensed, skilled and highly trained, and although some think that hiring professional electricians is expensive, the potential damage to your home if a wiring-related problem happens will cost far more. In the long term, good maintenance of your home electrics will save you a great deal. It’s recommended to have the wiring and fixtures in your home checked by a professional at least once a year to ensure everything is working as it should be. This way you can be sure there are no electrical hazards or faulty wires lurking in your home.

Most electrical wires are hidden from view behind walls. This means that you may be completely unaware of any problems simply because you can’t see the state of your wiring. Electrician To The Rescue’s team can check your wiring and give you a full report on your home wiring before it becomes a problem!
