Residential Electrical Services FAQs

I just need some small electrical work done. Can't I do it myself?

No. It's against the law for anyone other than a qualified electrician to perform any wiring work. Even if this work is carried out according to industry standards, it won't meet certification - which doesn't bode well if you need to sell your property. Make sure you only hire a qualified professional, such as those on the Ralph Ottmann Electrical team, to perform all your wiring. You'll ensure the safety of your property, family and friends in addition to your own.

What are the benefits of a safety switch?

In normal power circuits, a current traveling to an appliance returns through the neutral wire. If your circuit is defective or compromised, the electricity can travel to earth through a person who comes in contact with the appliance. This can lead to serious injury or even death.

Safety switches work to detect a power loss from the circuit and take as little as 30 milliseconds to cut the electrical supply. This rapid response time is important, as it's faster than a heartbeat's critical section and greatly reduces the devastating impacts of potential injury or death.

What's the difference between a safety switch and a circuit breaker?

Safety switches protect people from accidents, while circuit breakers conserve wiring and electrical systems. Safety switches activate when they sense a potential electrical shock about to occur. In contrast, circuit breakers cut the power when they detect a fault with the current or an overload, often caused by multiple appliances going into a single outlet.

In this way, it prevents electrocution or fire. It's important you have combined circuit breaker safety switches on your property, to make sure you, your family, and your appliances will be protected at all times.

When do I need an electrical safety assessment?

At Ralph Ottmann Electrical, we suggest you organise an electrical inspection if:

  • You're buying a property that's had, previous occupants
  • Your property is over 25 years old
  • It's been more than five years since you've had an electrical inspection
  • You're concerned about electrical or equipment installation

What does home rewiring involve?

A rewire is the most invasive and disruptive work your home will undergo. It involves moving out all your furniture, pulling up floor coverings, lifting floorboards and chasing out walls for sockets and switches. The work does cause a lot of mess, but our electrical team always cleans up as much as possible.

We commit to hassle-free electrical work that exceeds our customers' standards each and every time.

When should I call a residential electrician?

There are many reasons why you should call a professional electrician.

These include:

  • Resetting circuit breakers or changing fuses too frequently
  • Dimming lights when you use your air conditioner
  • Flickering lights
  • Burning smells
  • Overloaded outlets
  • Too few power points for your appliances

You should always consult an electrical professional if you have any concerns about your home's system or wiring.

Are LED lights really more efficient?

Yes. LED lights provide improved energy efficiency compared to incandescent lighting, and they usually last longer. As such, they're cost-effective and help to lower your energy bills.

Our team at Ralph Ottmann Electrical is on hand to speak with you about LED lighting solutions guaranteed to help you save money on electrical expenses.
