Tips for Safe Electrical Installation at Home

In Australia, electricity is a primary need for everyone, from turning on the lights to charging a smartphone. Of course, electrical installations must be done as well as possible to avoid short-circuiting.

 Remember that the Australian Energy Regulator is in charge of providing electricity. Homeowners are responsible for installing their electrical installations.

 Now, for those of you who are renovating or building a house that is currently installing an electric house, you can contact the Electrician Capalaba Phone at (0424 363 749)

 The following guidelines and tips that you can follow to make the installation safe : 

Know the Plans for Electrical Home Installation

 The initial guide in installing a home electrical installation is to adjust the placement of the box, lights, switches, and sockets of the MCB (Miniature Circuit Breaker). Not only to ensure that there are enough sockets for home use, but the placement position also needs to be adjusted to the needs of the homeowner.

Use Standard Cables when Installing Home Electricity

 When you do a home electrical installation, you must use cables with standards that have guaranteed safety and are not easy to peel. For example, a 2.5 mm diameter cable that is classified as strong for electric power that flows up to 5,000 watts in a house with an area of under 70 square meters.

 For electricity distribution in household devices such as lamps, you can use a 1.5 mm diameter cable that is safe to apply to electrical outlets and lamps under 100 watts. Don’t forget, wrap the power cord with a flexible conduit so that it is easier to replace and ensure the electric current remains stable even if the cable is pinched.

Cable Line Distribution during Electrical Home Installation

 Ideally, you distribute the cable channels as needed during your home electrical installation, for example for water pumps, air conditioners, lights, electrical outlets, and MCB reserves.

 MCB (Miniature Circuit Breaker) is one of the electrical equipment to cut off electricity in the power supply group when there is excessive use or short circuit.

 Use Separate Paths on Large Power Devices

 For large scale household electronics such as water heaters, water pumps, and air conditioners, it is better to use separate channels so that they are safe and do not interfere with other electricity usage. The distribution of electrical lines during home electrical installations also makes the cable stronger because the load is not excessive.

Use Quality Plugs when Installing Home Electricity

 The use of good quality plugs is very important when carrying out electrical installations at home. At a minimum, use plugs that are stable and not narrow, especially when there is a pile-up at one point because it can cause a jump in the flow of electricity and make the device more easily damaged if the flow is not fully connected.

Check the Quality of Home Electrical Installation regularly

 After the home electrical installation was carried out a few years ago, take the time to check the current flow in the home electrical installation. If you find a cable that starts to peel, bend or sheath that has begun to harden, it is recommended you replace the cable with a new one. If you encounter difficulties during the installation of Robinson Electrical Bevan can help you overcome this problem.

 The six guidelines above can be done so that home electrical installations can be done more safely and avoid electrical installation errors that can cause a short circuit. Also, you can use a certified electrical contractor to supervise and ensure the proper installation of home electricity.
