Updating or Properly Inspecting Electrical Items

Updating or properly inspecting electrical items around your home is one of the easier ways to prevent disaster. Most electrical fires are reportedly caused by old appliances and faulty outlets. Frayed cords and improper use of extension cords have the potential to shower anything nearby with sparks. Some people have old homes which can’t support modern electric needs, and one response is to install safety switches. Unfortunately this doesn’t work in every case, and you may need to take more steps to protect your home – and your life.

Why it is Important to use an Accredited Electrician?

Accredited electricians are verified to have the knowledge necessary to carry out any job you request from them. If you ask your neighbour Tom to work on your house, he may know a few things, but he's more likely to accidentally burn your house down than anything else. It's always important to look for a professional service provider if you don't have the knowledge and tools yourself.

Ceiling Fans Vs Air Conditioning - The great debate as to which is more cost effective.

There are many points you will need to factor in when trying to answer this question including:

  • Upfront cost
  • Heat factor
  • Humidity
  • Running costs

Upfront Cost

An average household would need around 5 ceiling fans (one per room) and depending on how many rooms your household has. The costs of ceiling fans range from $100-$400*. Say you decided to get one at $250. You need 5 of them which would add up too $1250.
