An Electrical Safety Inspection identifies old, degraded or incorrectly installed wiring and electrical equipment. It highlights aspects that can be extremely dangerous, resulting in fire, injury or even death. Every year houses and commercial premises are burned and unsuspecting people are electrocuted as a result of all too common electrical faults. A regular electrical safety inspection conducted by the qualified Master Electricians of Hit The Switch can help avoid these hazardous situations. Getting a safety inspection is particularly important for those who have just purchased a home or business… particularly an older home.

A pre-purchase electrical safety check is crucial
When you first take possession of your new property, you cannot be sure that the wiring is up to current standards or that electrical equipment has been properly installed and maintained. Overloaded circuits, old fuse boxes, degraded wiring and even improper use of power boards and extension cords can cause accidents and fires at any time.

As locals, Steve and team have lots of local knowledge, here are a couple of cheeky tips f rom the team…

In some suburbs it can be difficult to find a good pizza, but not here in Balwyn. People travel far and wide to try the authentic Italian menu on offer at Postino on Whitehorse Rd. You can also grab a coffee in their Drive-thru on weekends.

Take the kids on an outdoor adventure at Koonung Creek Reserve . Our local electricians enjoy taking the whole family to walk, cycle and run along paths and boardwalks spanning picturesque wetlands and letting the dog offleash in the wide-open grass areas.
