At The Local Electrician, our tradesmen all have the needed qualification to perform an electrical safety inspection. Firstly, a level 2 status for an electrician means they have done additional training than a regular electrician. As a result they can work on a wider variety of jobs and do more dangerous jobs. As a result, average level 3 electricians cannot inspect a building for electrical defects/ safety issues. Therefore, our team has the Level 2 license so that they can inspect your electrical systems.

Fully accredited master electricians

All the tradespeople at The Local Electrician have the highest qualifications necessary to perform an electrical inspection for any property. What this means is that each of our technicians is a certified Level 2 electrician, which is the only professional who should be performing this important safety task. This is because they have undergone more training than a regular electrician.

As a result, they can perform more dangerous jobs and work on various projects, including inspecting a property for electrical defects and safety issues — something that an average Level 3 electrician is not allowed to do.

Our expert electricians are fully accredited and have to abide by a stringent active electrical safety process for every job we work on. Just like a building inspection designed to locate any structural issues in your home, an electrical safety check and inspection cover every aspect of the electrical system in your existing property or a property you’re planning on buying.

Commercial and residential electrical safety services

An electrical inspection is something that many property owners overlook when it comes to annual maintenance, whether in a commercial or residential setting. But it is a simple fact that electrical fires or direct electrocution are responsible for multiple deaths every year.

While death and injury are the extreme consequences of a faulty electrical system, you’ll also lose a lot of money in wasted power. A high-quality electrical safety test and check from The Local Electrician will ensure that everything about your electrical supply operates at full capacity and is completely safe.

It is good practice to have an electrical safety check or home safety inspection on your Sydney property every 2-3 years. Among the specialised equipment we use are thermal instruments that allow us to quickly investigate your outlets and wiring without majorly disrupting your daily activities.

What is Included in an Electrical Safety Inspection?

There are many tasks which our electricians will perform during an electrical safety inspection service. Some of the main inspections involved are:

  • Inspecting Electrical Systems and Appliances – our team will look over each electrical system to make sure that they are functioning correctly. Small tests, from checking their voltage levels to any visible damages, are performed. Each appliance, system and electrical component of the building will be thoroughly tested and inspected. 
  • Examining for Broken or Exposed Wiring – wiring systems will be properly inspected for noticeable damages. To prevent house fires and electrical spikes these wires will be replaced as soon as possible. 
  • Looking Over Any DIY Projects – an electrician will ensure that any electrical jobs which were not carried out by an electrician have been properly completed. DIY electrical jobs can be performed poorly with loose connections and systems out of place. The electrician will look over the whole project to make sure that it is safe. 
  • Testing Electrical Switchboard and Similar Systems – the switchboard and also the safety switches and RCD switches are properly looked at. These systems are extremely important in protecting appliances and people from electrical overloads and spikes. Small tests and precise inspections are carried out to ensure each system has not defected. 
  • Light Inspection – all types of lights in the building are correctly looked at. These inspections on the lights make certain surges and other potential electrical problems are avoided. 
  • Electrical Surge Protection Levels – tests will be carried out and the electrician will determine if there needs to be more protection from electrical surges. This might include adding updated safety switches or new electrical outlets, all protecting electrical surges.

Reasons For An Electrical Safety Inspection

The most important reason why you would have someone check your electrical system is because of safety. Consequently, here are some main points which further your chances for having an electrical safety inspection:

  • Your home or building is older than 25 years
  • Especially for appliances that are over 5 years of age, equipment/ appliances operating in a faulty/ incorrect way
  • An older wiring system is present in the building
  • If you are moving selling homes then the new buyer can be reassured that everything is safe. Bonus – it is a good selling point
  • It can save money, as in lowering the costs of future problems. As well as, if replacement of appliances occur, more energy efficient ones being installed reduce electric bill prices.

Overall, you would want an electrical safety inspection as soon as possible. This is to reduce the risk your current system has on damaging your work or home. Additionally, it can prevent future issues from occurring. Also, can possibly save money from your electric bill on better and more energy efficient appliances.

When Should I Get an Electrical Safety Inspection?

It is strongly recommended that an electrical safety inspection occurs at least once a year. Below is a guide on other times which safety inspections regarding electrical systems should occur:

  • Residential Places – Every 3-5 years
  • Commercial Properties – Once a year
  • Industrial Buildings – Every 3-6 months
  • When buying or renting a home for the first time
