5. Transparent pricing
Ideally, your electrician will inform you upfront about the cost of any work. Invoices and quotes should be clear with no hidden fees. You should feel confident that any unexpected expenses will be disclosed to you, and that you get what you pay for.

There are a few common signs to look out for that may indicate a faulty switchboard, including:
- Flickering lights
- Porcelain Fuses
- Constantly tripping safety switch
- A burning smell or visible signs of damage
Flickering lights are often a sign of fluctuating electrical currents running throughout your home. Many people will consider a flickering light as nothing more than an annoyance.
However the truth is that this often abrupt change to voltage can cause significant damage in your home, including burnt out bulbs, damaged appliances, or even electrical fire.
Bulbs that burn out too quickly
There are many reasons why you’re noticing your light bulbs burning out faster than normal. From loose connections, short circuits or even old frayed cable, these burning light bulbs are sending you a sign!
Make sure you ask your local residential electricians to investigate the cause and provide the right resolution. Best of all, you’ll save energy and money with a more efficient lighting
Common Electrical Problems In The Home
Tripping safety switches
A safety switch (RCD) protects against electrical shock, and most importantly, protects people and saves lives. Safety switches should be installed in all homes to ensure your family is safe from any injury and prevent electrocution.
All new builds should be fitted with a safety switch, however many older homes throughout Victoria do not have one.
All homes in Victoria should have safety switches installed.
We cannot stress the importance of these life-saving devices in your home. They don’t just protect appliances; they protect people from injury and death from electrocution.
Old or faulty electrical switchboards
The brain of the home’s electrical circuit is the switchboard. It’s the place where all electrical ‘nerves’ of your home connect and meet. Sometimes, old switchboards need to be replaced because they cannot handle the growing demand for multiple, energy-hungry appliances and devices of our modern lifestyle.
Under immense strain, older switchboards simply can’t keep up.
Do You Live in an Old Home With Electrical Issues?
Older homes are more likely to have old fuse boxes and may not be equipped with electrocution devices such as safety switches (RCDs).
- An upgrade to your switchboard has three major benefits:
- Helps reduce your electricity bills Increases safety and peace-of-mind in your home
- Ensures your home can keep up with today’s energy-hungry demands
We believe that proactive action is key to ensuring your electrical systems remain up-to-date and in compliance with current industry standards.
