Importance Of Electrical Inspection And Testing

00Latest news

Before buying or renting a property, an electrical inspection must always be your top priority. It’s a vital part of evaluating a home or a commercial space, whether it’s ready for occupancy or needs some quick repairs. Faulty wiring can lead to all sorts of dangerous situations and if it’s ignored, it may be harmful to all members of your family or company.

But with the help of a registered electrician, you can have your property and appliances inspected first. Having these inspections performed regularly will make sure that all your appliances and wires are in working order. And this may also help to lower the risk of an accident that may occur.

Avoid unexpected delays and expenses

Routinely checking your electrical system can help prevent problems from happening that can cost you as a homeowner, helping to keep your wallet at ease.
It can also prevent any hold up from occurring when selling your home. If your electrical components and wiring are checked routinely, there will be no need for the buyer to undertake a check which can cause undue delays.

Reduce costs

Always make sure that wherever you’re moving too has had an electrical inspection to check the property’s wiring. If you move in and you find some issue with the home’s wiring or conclude that it’s faulty, you’re going to have to pay a huge amount of money to have it fixed. So it is worth even paying for the inspection yourself to ensure that the wiring to the property you’re moving to is all okay and up to date.

Save energy

Faulty home wiring and circuits can cost a lot with your energy supplier, meaning a bigger electricity bill. An inspection can recognise wiring and circuits that have been connected incorrectly to help decrease energy consumption.

Safety

An inspection can easily determine any complication with electrical wires, circuits, connections, or oversize breakers and fuses that could produce many risks such as fire hazards or electrocution.
An Electrician can spot outdated wiring that could pose as a risk for another fire-starter in the home.

Energy-Saving Tips

How To Reduce Your Electricity Bill This Summer

00Latest news

The sun is high and you want to enjoy your time under it, but that doesn’t mean your electricity bill has to be, too. But don’t worry, when it comes to reducing your expenditures there are a number of ways to lower your electric bill. So if you’re looking to save some electricity this summer, the following picks just might be what you’re searching for.

• Turn off your air conditioner

Turning off and adjusting the temperature of your air conditioner while you’re sleeping or if you’re leaving your house can result in huge electricity savings.

• Energy efficient light bulbs

You can use compact fluorescent and light-emitting diode bulbs because they are more efficient and use less energy than a traditional incandescent bulb. You can purchase these kinds of bulbs at your local hardware store.

• Blinds and drapes

Window coverings can prevent your house from heating up during summer and can also save energy. When a blind is fully pulled down over a window with a lot of sun exposure, during summer days, they can lower heat gain by up to 45%. Drapes on your windows prevent heat gain as well and reduce this by 33%.

• Place the fridge right

Your fridge accounts for 15% of a household’s total power consumption. To lower your electricity bill, make your fridge more power efficient by allowing the air to circulate around it. Your refrigerator should be at least 2 inches away from the wall of your house, don’t put to much stuff in your fridge, because there won’t be enough space for air to circulate inside and lastly, don’t expose it to direct sunlight, because it will need more power to function.

• Use fans

Fans get air circulating around your room that means you may be able to detain turning on the air conditioning in your house, especially if you can also leave your windows open on cool summer evenings.

• Natural ventilation

During summer we experience heat during daylight, but when the night comes so does a cool summer breeze, which you should take advantage of. Eliminate your electricity usage by opening your windows when you’re sleeping at night so the cool air outside can blow through and help to cool the house down without the need of fans or air conditioning units.
