Electrical Maintenance: What Perth Homeowners Need to Know – Advice from NJP Electrical

April 30, 2024

In our experience, electrical maintenance is often overlooked by homeowners until a problem arises. However, it plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety and efficiency of your home’s electrical system.

At NJP Electrical, as experienced electricians servicing homes here in Perth, we understand the importance of regular electrical maintenance to prevent loss of power, unexpected blackouts and potentially more serious hazards such as an electrical fire or electrocution (It also prolongs the lifespan of your electrical appliances and fixtures too!).

Electrical Maintenance and Its Importance

We understand the significance of electrical maintenance to keep your household safe and happy. It can mean the difference between cool air conditioning or sweating it out in summer, powering up your tech for work or being uncontactable, plugging in an appliance safely or getting an electric shock .. or worse.

Maintenance is not just about checking wires and switches, it’s also about keeping informed of what is new and possibly more efficient. Think upgrading to low voltage or LED lights and downlights, installing timers or sensor lighting – all these can lower your energy bill as well as update an ageing fitting.

It is also important to employ qualified, professional electricians to install and maintain the electrical system in your home. Don’t be tempted by the idea of a cheap DIY solution – it’s not the safest option.

So, our goal is to provide top-notch, qualified and trusted electrical services that prioritise safety and reliability.

Essential Electrical Maintenance Tips for Homeowners

Routine Checks and Why They Matter

Routine electrical checks are essential for identifying potential issues before they escalate into major problems. We advise all our clients of several regular electrical checks they can carry out in their homes to ensure the safety and efficiency of their electrical system.

Most of these checks are simple: inspecting power outlets, switches and wiring for signs of wear or damage, checking for loose wiring, connections, switches or powerpoints and testing any RCDs in the property’s electrical box are all simple yet effective ways to keep your electrical system running smoothly.

DIY vs Professional Maintenance: What You Need to Know

While a few DIY electrical maintenance tasks can be safely performed by homeowners, others require the expertise of a licensed, professional electrician. Attempting complex electrical work without proper training and equipment is dangerous and may lead to serious injury or property damage.

At NJP Electrical, our team of licensed electricians has the knowledge and experience to handle all of your maintenance needs safely and efficiently.  Whether it’s replacing outdated wiring, upgrading electrical panels or troubleshooting electrical issues, we have the skills and resources to get the job done right the first time.

Example 1: A Kensington homeowner recently contacted us to install energy-efficient and feature lighting in their newly renovated home.

When considering upgrading lighting in older homes, deteriorated wiring and old style lighting come with the territory. For this home, we conducted a thorough inspection and listened to the homeowner’s wishes before suggesting improvements. Take a look at these super results.

Example 2: A Thornlie homeowner decided to upgrade to energy efficient lighting both inside and out.

We fitted LED spotlighting outside to improve not only the look but the safety of the property. Indoors, new energy efficient lighting within some well-chosen shades has produced a stylish aesthetic whilst reducing the owner’s energy bill.

We are often contacted by homeowners wishing to completely upgrade their home’s electrical system or renovate. Our mission here is to find out exactly what you want to achieve with your upgrade. Do you want to upgrade to efficient LED lights?  Do you want to extend your power supply outdoors for a new pool or garden lighting?  Do you need a complete re-wire? Consider extending the wiring to have more power points or lights fitted.

After discussing your plans with you, our electricians will conduct a comprehensive inspection of the electrical system ‘as is’ to determine its viability and then outline a plan of action with a quote for your consideration. Here are some more of our recently completed projects.
