Electrical Safety Inspection
An electrical safety inspection is always a good idea, because your electrician will carry out a thorough survey of your home and identify any potential electrical hazards. The best times to organise an inspection would be before you buy a house, after a severe storm, or on a regular basis if you live in an old house. The team at Scott Comms conducts thorough and careful electrical safety inspections in homes across Perth, so we can help you to ensure the continued safety of your family and the security of your home.
General Light and Power
Here at Scott Comms, we have a number of skilled residential electricians in Perth, who have years of experience in helping people with their general lights and power needs at home. We create a lighting and wiring plan for every customer, so we can figure out the best places for light switches and what sort of lights will suit the house. Our team also decides where to place power outlets for the most efficiency and accessibility. We also perform expert repairs and maintenance when your electrical system has deteriorated – don’t try this on your own as you might electrocute yourself or not be able to receive your insurance afterwards.
Downlights and LED Lights
Downlights and LED lights are common choices in many residences, with the energy-efficient properties of LED bulbs making them a very popular choice. LEDs last for 50,000 hours, and because they create half the heat of traditional lights, they use much less energy.
Downlights are built into the ceiling of your house and are ideal for the kitchen or similar workspaces. They are also affordable, and suitable if you have limited ceiling space, or are going for a minimalist look. The residential electricians at Scott Comms can professionally install both LEDs and downlights, as well as a range of other lighting options.
If you’re experiencing flickering lights and fuses blowing regularly, or can smell burning and hear buzzing in your house, then it’s probably time to have a professional check the wiring. Every residential electrical system requires professional and precise wiring, and this can be done safely and efficiently by the electrical contractors at Scott Comms. We provide affordable, experienced services and go through all the plans with you before installing the new home wiring.
An RCD is a ‘residual current device’, and its purpose is to switch off the power in your house if it detects any faults in the system. It monitors the electrical current for any fluctuations, and can turn off the electricity within milliseconds – this could potentially save your life. It’s definitely a smart investment to upgrade your switchboard to an RCD. As part of our residential electrical services, Scott Comms will install RCDs, or ensure that your existing RCDs are all compliant and in top working condition.
Smoke alarms are an essential element of the legal security measures in place to keep you and your family safe in your home. If you don’t have a fire alarm, then you’re four times more likely to die if a fire starts in your home – this is because it’s very unlikely that you would smell the smoke while you’re sleeping.
The Department of Fires and Emergency Services WA states that your alarms should be under 10 years old, all interconnected, and connected to the main power supply. If you need some new alarms installed so you meet the requirements and can keep your home and family safe, then Scott Comms can professionally install them in the correct place and in compliance with any laws.
Why Should You Choose a Professional Residential Electrician?
Many people believe themselves to be amateur electricians, and often they will assess an electrical issue in their home and think they can save money by fixing it themselves – this isn’t a good idea. For one thing, you could easily electrocute yourself and cause serious damage when you don’t know what you’re doing. Also, if you accidentally cause more harm than good to the system, you won’t be able to claim anything on insurance, and it will just cost you more in the end.
A professional electrician from Scott Comms will expertly assess everything and make sure your home is a safe and secure place for your family, they will also fix the issue in a reliable manner which can prevent further problems from occurring.
