3 Essential Auckland Electrical Services
An electrician is an individual who has extensive knowledge of electrical wiring in residential, commercial and industrial applications.
Auckland electricians are responsible for testing, installing and maintaining electrical systems but just having the skills and knowledge is not enough. Registration with the Electrical Workers Registration Board is mandatory for those conducting electrical work. A competency refresher program is required every two years to update your knowledge and skills to maintain current industry standards.
Electrical Fires - the facts
Over 20% of New Zealand house fires are caused by appliances or the power supply or damage to power outlets. One of the most dangerous misperceptions is connecting multiple power boards to one socket; however, this is untrue. It is best not to exceed the safe limit of that socket by overloading.
Most electrical fires occur between 12 am, and 6 am, and the fatality rates increase substantially as homeowners are generally fast asleep during these times.
Book a registered electrician for these electrical services to avoid an electrical fire.

2. Update the wiring and electrical work
Old, outdated, or deteriorated wiring can cause house fires, which is especially true for homes built more than 20 years ago. The wiring in these older homes may not have been inspected for some time. A lack of regular electrical maintenance can lead to undetected deterioration that does not comply with current standards and regulations.
Electrical wires that are faulty or old that have not had regular electrical maintenance will overload and cause the complete electrical system to fail. The warning signs of electrical wiring repairs being required are:
Loose connections and sockets
Brown or burn marks on or around sockets
Burning smells or smoke
The use of excessive power boards and extension cords to cover for lack of power outlets
Dimming and flickering lights
Electric shocks when you plugin or touch a cord or appliance
