  • Can I do any domestic electrical work myself?

    According to Australian law, the only electrical work you can do, yourself, is changing a burnt bulb or a burnt fuse. Undertaking any other type of electrical work might lead to serious harm either to yourself or your property or both.

    The law also stipulates that any work apart from this should be carried out by a registered and qualified electrician.

  • How can I fix a recurring circuit trip?

    An electrical circuit will trip the circuit breaker if it becomes overloaded with electricity. This is something you can fix after taking the right precautions.

    First, unplug all electrical appliances and switch off all lamps and electrical fixtures. Then, locate the tripped breaker in the breaker box and put it to the complete ‘Off’ position to clear out any overloads in the circuit.

    After that, put the breaker to the ‘On’ position to restore power to that circuit.

    If a tripped breaker is a recurrent issue, however, contact a certified and registered electrician to look into this issue.
