Certificates of compliance can only be issued by a licensed electrician and are required whenever electrical work is carried out on a property. This includes work such as installing new electrical wiring, sockets, or light fixtures or carrying out repairs on existing electrical systems. They are also needed if you are planning to sell or lease a property.
You should have an electrical safety inspection once every ten years or whenever you buy a new home. Insurance companies often require an up-to-date electrical safety inspection before they will provide coverage.
Homes in Australia are required to have certain safety features to protect occupants from electrical hazards. These features include circuit breakers, residual current devices (RCDs), and earthing.
Circuit breakers are devices that protect electrical circuits from overload by automatically shutting off the power when too much current is flowing. RCDs are devices that protect against electric shock by disconnecting the power if there is a current leak. Earthing is a system that connects electrical equipment to the ground to prevent shocks.
To keep your home electrically sound, you should regularly check your circuit breakers and RCDs to make sure they are working properly. You should also have your electrical system inspected by a qualified electrician every three to five years.
There is no definitive answer to this question as it depends on a number of factors, including the age and condition of the house, the type of wiring used, and the electricity usage of the occupants. However, as a general guide, it is recommended that houses built before 1970 should be rewired every 25 years, while those built after 1970 should be rewired every 40 years.
While you may be capable of carrying out your own electrical work, it isn’t advisable, as electricians are required to have a license in order to perform work on electrical systems. This is for your safety and the safety of those around you, as electrical work can be extremely dangerous if not carried out correctly. If you attempt to carry out electrical work without a license and something goes wrong, you could be liable for any damage or injuries that occur.
