FAQs

Can I do small electrical jobs around the house?

No.

According to the latest Australia Government statistics on average 75 people / year end up in hospital “while the person was doing unpaid work, including household maintenance”.

But these are just the people who end up in hospital and do not include injury to others from incorrectly installed or deaths. 

Apart from safety to you, incorrectly installed wiring or equipment can cause fires and other issues. 

It is also illegal, can affect insurance claims and could also create issues if you were to sell your house.

How can an electrician help me save money and the environment?

LED lighting, effective use of Tariff 33 power, smart charging of electric cars, DC Fans, economical heating and reverse cycle air-conditioning are all things you can do to minimise your electricity usage. 

Reducing your power usage means smaller bills and/or smaller solar systems which also helps the environment because coal does not need to be burnt to generate power. 

Did you know: 

88% of Queensland’s power generation comes from coal and Queensland became the biggest emitter of greenhouse gases in Australia due to its reliance on coal power and road transport. (Source wikipedia)

However Noosa Council is going green by 2026 and there is a lot you can do to reduce your power needs too. 

Can I install LED lighting if I have older halogen or other lights?

Absolutely. These days quality LED lighting works really well in pretty much every situation. 

That is not all:

Not only can LED lighting save you money it also provides options for the type of light that is generated – warm to daylight white and bright or moody. 

We find that homeowners are delighted when we instal LED lights.

How much money can I save with LED?

A lot depends on how long lights are left on and what you are currently using:

Here is a common example:
In a typical 3 bedroom house there are about 20 50W Halogen lights in their house which are used about 8 hours per day. Assuming 30c/kwh power.
The cost to run a 50W Halogen is about 12 cents for 8 hours.
The cost to run a 7W LED is 0.017 cents for 8 hours.
Annual Halogen costs:
20 x 50W annual cost = $.12 x 20 x 365 = $876 / year
Annual LED costs:
20 x 7W annual cost = $.017 x 20 x 365 = $124 / year
Saving of $752 / year.
5 years $3760

Easy to see how the costs of installing LEDs makes a lot of sense and can easily pay for itself.

I am about to purchase a new house, should I get it tested by an electrician?

Prior to buying a house having your house checked from an electrical point of view is a good idea especially if the house is older. Many basic electrical aspects are covered as part of a pre-purchase property inspection report (or building inspection). If the inspection report raises any red flags it is often a good idea to dig deeper. Electrical systems in a house can be expensive to replace and unsafe if there are issues. 

Did you know:

The Australian Bureau of Statistics says major causes of house fires occur inwiring, meters, switches, cords, plugs, lamps and light bulbs” thorough “short circuits, ground fault and other electrical failure”.

Do I need a qualified person to install data/NBN?

Data, phone cabling and Cat6 data cabling (inc. the NBN) within Australia requires a licensed ACMA certified technician to perform installation or maintenance.

Good to know:

To run NBN you need a power source that’s within 1.5m of the modem so your phone and internet can work on the NBN.

To make life easy we are able to do both at once if required.

How can I protect my home from storms / lightning strikes?

Protecting humans, property and electronic equipment from lighting strikes can be done in a number of ways:

  1. Installation of lightning and/or surge protection
  2. Install transient voltage protectors (for electronic equipment)
  3. Unplug electronics in a storm

Basic surge protection for electronic equipment can be achieved simply by using quality power boards like HMPSchneider or Clipsal in Australia. Of course power boards are limited to the electronics where they are placed and have limits on how much protection they offer.

Switchboard surge protection covers your whole house which means all your electronics, appliances, lighting and communication systems have a good level of safety.

Transient voltage protectors may also be a good idea. 

Your budget and the cost to replace are all factors. 

What is Tariff 33 and Tariff 31?

These tariffs (or prices) enable homeowners to save money on their electricity bills by connecting equipment like your hot water system and pool pumps to cheaper power usually only available at off peak times.

  • Tariff 31 supply is for 8 hours per day connected to the Ergon Energy network, and 5 hours per day for the Essential Energy network.
  • Tariff 33 guarantees supply for 18 hours per day for Ergon Energy network, and 10 hours per day for Essential Energy network.

Residential customers in regional Queensland (including Noosa) must be on Tariff 11, Tariff 12A, or Tariff 14 before being able to access Tariffs 31 or 33.
