Changes to RCD requirements

The wiring rules have changed in Australia and your switchboard might be due for a change with them.

Previously only circuits with socket outlets required protection from a residual current device (or ‘safety switches’) but now all final sub-circuits need to be protected.

That means not only your power points but also hardwired equipment like hot water services, cooktops & AC units as well as your lighting needs to be protected.

Updating your circuit protection will not only make your home compliant though, it will also make you and your family safer.

The Electrical Safety Office recommends that each circuit receive its own safety switch, rather then safety switches sharing protection across circuits. North Gold Coast Electrical endorses that recommendation, out experience working on homes on the Gold Coast for 15 years has been that when shared safety switches trip it increases the cost and inconvenience of fault rectification.

To book an appointment with a qualified electrician to upgrade your safety switches call North gold Coast Electrical today on (07) 55 000 222

In the Christmas season it is great to see more and more homes bringing colour and light to their neighbourhoods with dramatic Christmas lighting installations celebrating the festive season.

Its important to make sure the lighting you’re using and the way its installed doesn’t cause any electrical or fire hazards.

Worksafe Queensland provides the following helpful tips for ensuring your lighting is safe:
• Use indoor lights indoors and outdoor lights outdoors.
• Buy Australian-compliant Christmas lights (be wary of purchasing non-compliant lights over the internet from overseas).
• Check old Christmas lights before re-using them.
• Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
• Don’t alter or modify lights.
• Ensure all lights, extension leads and power boards are suitable for the intended use (e.g external or internal).
• Test your safety switch and smoke detector to make sure they are working.
• Keep Christmas lights out of reach of children.
• Always turn off decorative lighting before going to bed or leaving your house.

You can read more tips and learn ways to determine if your Christmas lighting is Australian compliant on their website at https://www.worksafe.qld.gov.au/injury-prevention-safety/electricity/homeowners-and-consumers/use-safe-christmas-lights

We would recommend that if you’re unsure, get a qualified electrician like the experienced team at North Gold Coast Electrical to check your safety switches, smoke detectors and lighting installations for safety and compliance.

CBUS & DynaLight systems are popular for top-end new-home constructions but for those wanting to update their home-tech in an existing structure can be prohibitively expensive if not impossible from a practical perspective.

Luckily there are products on the market that can bring modern technology like remote operation of lighting and power outlets to your home in a cost-effective manner.

Products like these remote operation switches mean you can switch your over-head bedroom lighting without ever getting out of bed.
Not only that but the Light Switches themselves look a lot better then standard white plastic with their tempered glass finish and touch activated switches, modernising any room of the house and delivery a slick high-end result.

If you would like to know more about this range of products or other ways of updating the electrical installation around your home give North Gold Coast Electrical a call today.

What’s wrong with this Picture?

For me it’s the huge gap between the bed-side table and the wall, I’m not sure about you but it drives me crazy. Not only is it unsightly and inconvenient – the numbers of times i’ve dropped my phone down the back of that table – it also encroaches on the usable space in the room.Edited Background picture

The cultprit is always the same:

20170520_130359

Lamp plugs and phone charges push furniture off walls, be it bedside tables, fridges, televisions or cabinetry. Not only is this unsightly it often results in damage to the plugs themselves and can be electrically hazardous.

North Gold Coast Electrical’s solution in this instance was to fix the problem and eliminate the hazard by recess mounting the outlet itself.

20170520_141951

By recess mounting the power outlet and using a fitting with an integrated fast charge USB outlet I’ve both eliminate the need for a bulky phone charge block and have been able to protect the Lamp plug inside the recess.

The result:

20170520_135457

Annoying & ugly gap almost completely eliminated.
Using these recesses is a great solution for any cabinetry or appliance whose plug base is forcing them off the wall, that might mean your fridge sits back flush with surrounding cabinetry or that you don’t have to void your TV’s warranty by replacing the plug with a side-mount plug when installing to a slimline wall bracket.

Installation of a recessed outlet involves hard-wiring of electrical installations, it should not be attempted by anyone other then a licensed electrician.

For info on this remedy or for any of your electrical needs give North Gold Coast Electrical’s team of skilled Gold Coast Electrician a call today.
