HOME RENOVATIONS ELECTRICAL SAFETY TIPS FREMANTLE & MELVILLE
All home renovations have potential electrical risks and require you to be vigilant, even if there is no direct electrical involvement.
If you are not a licensed electrician, you should never do your own electrical work as it is illegal, dangerous and if you have an electrical fire, your home insurance company may not cover you.
All electrical work regardless of whether it is a small or large job must be done by a registered electrician.
The only jobs a homeowner can do in regards to electrical work are change a light bulb or tube, reset a fuse or change a fluorescent bulb or tube.
You may purchase electrical supplies or appliances which need hardwiring, but it is recommended that you leave this for the electrician you have hired to do your work, as they will most likely purchase from wholesalers who have Australian compliant products.
