Electrician Adelaide


Did you know it is illegal in South Australia to do your own electrical work? It’s not surprising this law is in place as each year, about twenty people die by electrocution in Australia and many more are injured. Most of these deaths occur from people trying to DIY electrical work.

“But it’s just a power point you say?” It’s tempting to try and save money by doing small electrical jobs yourself, but the risks aren’t worth it. And, if there is a fire in your home, insurance won’t cover you so the cost in the end can be huge. In the words of the Energy Safe Commission in Victoria – DDIY – Don’t Do It Yourself.

Electricity passes through an intricate web of wires before it gets to your light switches or appliances and along the way it is safely contained with insulation. Even a small break in this insulation, which is required when doing electrical work, exposes the electricity and can cause harm.

Spending money up front to get a professional electrician to do the work isn’t just about safety, it’s also about having peace of mind that the work will be done to industry standards.
