We will visit your premises and systematically verify all electrical components. As part of our inspection process, Hit The Switch will:
- Ensure all appliances are safe, have not been tampered with, and are in proper working order
- Report on appliances that aren’t safe
- Check for damage to plugs, leads and casings to ensure that there are no live parts that could electrocute someone or start a fire.
- Test electrical wiring, socket outlets, switches, safety switches and smoke alarms
If everything checks out, we will issue a Non-Prescribed Certificate of Electrical Safety (COES) and submit it to Energy Safe Victoria for approval. Then, and only then, can reconnection take place.
Incidentally, some insurance companies also require an electrical inspection and safety certificate, so check your home and contents insurance policy before reconnecting.
For total peace of mind, we recommend that safety checks be carried out on appliances from time to time, say every two to three years.
For more information or advice about reconnecting power, or to book our service, call Hit The Switch on 1300 205 205 or simply contact us.
