Common overlooked electrical checks that could become a problem for the future

Electricity to the home, much like good service, is something that goes unnoticed until it isn’t there – and we’re not even talking about load shedding! We take for granted that a flick of a switch will result in the room being lit-up, or the water being boiled.

Giving your electrical wellness a once-over on the odd occasion can go a long way to ensuring that your home stays powered-up. There are a few easy to do inspections that should become routine in your home, that will save you frustration and unwanted cost in the future. 

Being mindful of electrical cords/cables, such as those attached to your kettle or your microwave and taking note of any frays in the casing is a great start to ensuring electrical safety and health. Pay attention to all cables in the home, and ensure that they are free from damage. If any frays or other damage is noted, these cables should immediately be repaired. 

Another often overlooked electrical check is to ensure that all of the plugs, light fittings and switches are securely in place. If a plug does not fit snugly into the outlet, then the outlet should be replaced or repaired. The same can be said for light fittings and for light switches. Having ill-fitted light switches and/or fittings can pose a serious hazard in your home, and can cause extended damage to your electrical health in your home. 

So be an electrically responsible citizen, save yourself the frustration and cost. Ensure that regular inspections of these simple electrical aspects are undertaken. If in doubt, please reach out to us and we’ll gladly assist. Dial 087 55 11 000 today, and a friendly Sunburst Electrician will provide expert advice and service, tailored to your needs.
