Surry Hills has had its fair share of crime in the past, including Kate Leigh and Tilly Devine, but today it is the centre of the fashion wholesale businesses in Sydney, not to mention its’ fair share of restaurants and pubs, especially on Crown Street. It is also a wealthy area now, with the median household income of $2,345 compared with the national average of $1,234. Another odd fact is that the average number of Australian households that don’t have a car is 8.6% whereas in Surry Hills it is 47%!
Emergency Electrician Surry Hills
However, what Surry Hills has in common with not just the rest of Sydney but the whole of Australia is that almost every building has electricity, and that on occasions that electricity can become faulty.
Usually it is not the electricity supply which is faulty, although that can happen from time to time, but it is the equipment and appliances inside every building that can cause problems. Many houses and businesses date back 70 years or more, built just after the Second World War, and some are as much as 100 years old.
This can mean that electrical faults can develop quite often in properties where the wiring is older and has not been replaced, which is why Aussie Electrical & Plumbing offers a 24 hour emergency electrician Surry Hills.
You never know when there is going to be an electrical fault, either in the wiring of the building or in appliances used inside it.
Commercial Electrician Surry Hills
Of course, today modern homes and offices are built with safety in mind and include residual circuit breakers which will cut off the electricity in a split second if there is an electrical fault. However, some older properties still do not have residual circuit breakers: if your home or business is one of these you should call us in immediately to have one installed. If you are not certain whether or not your property has a residual circuit breaker, call in our local electrician to check. He will be able to tell you in the space of a minute.
What if I don’t have a residual circuit breaker?
We can install one for you and it won’t cost a lot. You could perhaps go for 100 years without an electrical problem, but then again you could have one in the next half hour. Why take the risk?
It’s a form of insurance. If you insure your home and contents (which you no doubt do) and you get burgled, you can claim on your policy for items which have been stolen.
If you have an electrical fault you could have a fire (which is very probable) or get killed by a faulty appliance. Losing treasures from your home is one thing, but losing your life or that of a loved one doesn’t compare. We don’t want to sound as though we are talking doom and gloom here, but in the 21st century we have technology which is designed to protect us from harm, so it is sensible to take every precaution.
Actually, I do have a residual circuit breaker. What do I do if it trips?
This can be caused by a number of different things such as faulty appliances, wiring faults, using too many appliances at once and overloading the system, a badly wired plug, and more. If you have a residual circuit breaker which trips you should unplug the appliance that you were using and turn the switch on again. If it stays on, then it is the appliance that is at fault. If it still trips there may be a fault with the wiring, the fuse box, or with the switch itself.
Either way, you need the services of our electrician Surry Hills. It really doesn’t matter what time of day or night it is because we are open for business 24 hours a day, 365 days a year (366 in a leap year!) because an electrical fault is often a real emergency. One thing that you really cannot mess about with is electricity, if you don’t really know what you are doing. Certainly, many Surry Hills people can change a fuse and wire a plug, but after that it becomes ever more difficult.
How do I know if my house wiring is OK or needs rewiring?
The short answer is that you don’t. However, we do. At Aussie Electrical & Plumbing our expert technicians use the very latest up to date technology which can test the whole of the wiring and all the electrical appliances in your home. We will be able to detect any faults, whether visible or not, and provide you with a list of any defects that we find. Many of our customers have an annual inspection from our electrician in Surry Hills in order to have peace of mind. The old expression is that it is far better to be safe than sorry, and in the case of electrical faults it could not be more true. Why take unnecessary risks?
I need a couple of extra power points. Can you install them?
Of course. In today’s world we rely more and more on electrical gadgets. We all have our laptops and – unfortunately some might say – so do our kids. So every member of the family wants to be plugged in at the same time, not to mention all of the other things that we need to do like charging up our mobile phones every day (that’s another four sockets needed in a family of four!).
So yes, if you are suffering from plug-in overload, our electrician can install some extra power points for you. One, two, – ten if you need them.
What about smoke detectors?
That’s a very good question. If you haven’t got smoke detectors you most certainly need them. It is calculated that people in homes without smoke detectors are four times more likely to die in a fire than those who have. They are really very inexpensive to install and our electrician Surry Hills can do it for you in a couple of hours.
I have been thinking about some garden lighting. Can you help?
Certainly. Garden lighting can be an absolute joy and transform your garden at night. You can spotlight a favourite tree or shrub, light up paths, light up your deck so that you can stay outside on those warm summer evenings – really, garden lighting can make a huge difference to your life. There is a vast range of different lighting from which to choose in order to achieve the ambience that you desire. Call our local electrician to envisage all the possibilities.
