Putting a maintenance service agreement in place will make staying compliant with industry standards easy.
You’ll find these electrical tips easy and practical. At Laguna Electrical Services—an electrician Sunshine Coast residents rely on—we hope you find this advice empowering.
Installing Smart Lighting
Add a switch or two beside your bed to control all the bedroom lighting. Place the switches above your bedside tables, within easy reach from the bed for you and your partner.
On one plate, you could have two switches—one to control your reading lamp, the other for room lighting. The switch near the bedroom door can be wired similarly, allowing you to switch everything off as you leave. Another good bedside addition is a USB port on the power socket so you can charge your phone.
Replacing Table Lamps
It’s all too easy to crowd your bedside table and all too common for a table lamp to end up as collateral damage. Consider bedside lights that are sconces, fixed to either the wall or bedhead, or perhaps hanging pendants.
Installing Extra Electrical Outlets
Install electrical outlets inside your bathroom vanity’s top drawer. This will allow you to plug in and store hairdryers, electric toothbrushes, electric shavers, etc. Top drawer positioning is convenient—easy to reach and makes it possible to stand at the mirror.
Practical Placement of Light Switches
Placement of light switches can be decided by walking through each room of your house and choosing the best positions. Average rooms need only one light switch.
Hallways and staircases, one at each end. Every exit should have a light switch for both interior and exterior lights—front door, side, back, garage entrance/exit doors, and doors to decks and patios.
So, you won’t need to fumble around in darkness to find the switch, closets, pantries, garages, attics, and basements should have their light switches on the outside. Motion-activated lights are another option for these spaces.
Think about Bathroom Vanity Lighting
The best place for bathroom vanity lighting is on both sides of the mirror, and above and slightly in front of the mirror. Standing at the bathroom vanity, you do NOT want overhead lighting.
That would cast shadows on your face, and you’d have a hard time shaving, applying makeup and doing your hair.
Consider the Installation of Fans
Ceiling fans, despite losing a little momentum in a market of air conditioners, are back, more beautiful than ever. They are practical, great value for money, mosquitoes hate them, and they are brilliant for covered spaces outdoors.
Placement of Kitchen Electrical Outlets
Power outlets in kitchens are not the best look and you would need a few of them, considering the average number of useful appliances. Add to that, the fact that power strips and liquids do not play well together.
A great idea is to install your outlets and power strips out of harm’s way on the underside of upper cabinets. This is also a good location for under-cabinet lighting, illuminating your benches and food prep areas.
As part of our extensive commercial and residential services, Laguna Electrical is happy to offer support for all your test and tag needs. We work from Gympie to Hinterland, so you can be sure that wherever you are on the Sunshine Coast, you’ll be able to get your test and tag responsibilities sorted quickly and easily.
Test and Tag means you can be confident that your electrical appliances that are portable are safe. Our test and tag process usually looks something like this.
The Australian standards are set out in AS/NZS 3760. This includes things like recommendations for Test and Tag intervals as well as giving guidelines as to who is permitted to carry out the process.
If you hire out any kind of equipment, Test and Tag is essential. If you are an employer, you also have a duty of care to your team, which includes making sure the equipment they use is safe. Keeping up with Test and Tag means you avoid costly compensation claims as well as creating a safe working environment.
How often Test and Tag is required depends on the industry and environment the appliance is in – for example, businesses in the mining sector, where there is a lot of wear and tear on equipment, are obliged to Test and Tag every three months. To find out more about the regulations that apply to you, just get in touch with our friendly team on 07 5473 0422 or complete our contact form.
Test and Tag must be carried out by a qualified person.
Test and Tag needs to be done on any appliance that has a flex and removable plug. This includes objects like kettles and hairdryers as well as industrial equipment.
Laguna Electrical has years of experience in a host of commercial and residential electrical work, which includes Test and Tag. Our teams work across the area, from Gympie to the Hinterland and all the way up to North Brisbane, so wherever you are, we can help.
Frequently Asked Electrical Questions
No. You should never try to take on electrical jobs in your home on your own.
Not only is there a risk to your health from attempting to tackle electrical jobs on your own, but you could be breaking the law. In Queensland, it’s illegal for anyone other than a qualified electrician to undertake any rewiring work in domestic properties.
It doesn’t matter whether the work is done to a professional standard or not; whoever carries out the work has to have the appropriate certification.
If you are planning on selling your home one day, it’s essential that you have the proper documentation for any electrical work that has been carried out.
Smart wiring is an industry wiring standard that is becoming increasingly commonplace.
Smart wiring is designed to accommodate smart home systems and enable you to integrate all the devices associated with a smart home.
This makes connecting your devices together much simpler.
On a regular power circuit, currents flow to appliances via a neutral wire.
If the circuit is compromised and a person comes into contact with an appliance, electricity can flow to the earth through the appliance and the person, causing serious injuries or even death.
A safety switch kicks in when it detects the loss of power from the circuit and automatically cuts the electricity supply.
The switch can work in as little as 30 milliseconds, a faster response time than the period of a human heartbeat.
This rapid response time significantly reduces the chances of death or injury.
Homes and businesses should conduct regular electrical safety checks to ensure their wiring and appliances are safe to use.
There are also some specific circumstances in which it is worth commissioning additional electrical inspections:
– You have just purchased a new property that was previously occupied
– Your property is more than 25 years old and hasn’t had a professional electrical inspection before
– You haven’t commissioned a professional inspection of your property in the last five years
– You are concerned about the installation of any electrical appliances or equipment in your home
– You have experienced shocks when using electrical appliances
– Your sockets or appliances are making a buzzing sound
Master electricians have the training necessary to deliver a safe and reliable service to the highest standards possible.
The certification that master electricians hold lets you know you can trust their work and judgment when completing a job in your home or business.
Master electricians are also required to undertake ongoing training and periodically reapply for certification so you can always be certain that their knowledge puts them at the very forefront of their trade.
Our master electricians can complete any job in residential and commercial properties to the highest possible standards.
Safety is always our number one priority, giving you and your customers total peace of mind.
