FAQs

Can I do my own electrical work?

DIY electrical work is both illegal and dangerous, and all electrical work in Queensland must be carried out by a licensed and insured electrical contractor. If an accident was caused by unlicensed electrical work, your insurance may be voided and you would also be responsible for any damage caused. What’s more, you could face fines or jail time if damage to people or property occurs. Don’t risk it! Call AMG Electrical Solutions on 07 4179 0104 when you need licenced electrical work at a great price.

What’s a safety switch and what does it do?

A safety switch or RCD is an essential device that saves Australian lives on a daily basis and is designed to protect people if an item of electrical equipment fails due to a fault. In the event of a fault, it switches off before reaching a dangerous level (to a healthy adult). All homes should have at least one safety switch installed with new Australian Standards requiring all domestic circuits to be protected.

If you’re unsure if your house has a safety switch installed or would like to get them professionally inspected and tested, call AMG Electrical Solutions on 07 4179 0104!

Can I use LEDs to save money on my power bill?

Yes, of course! The installation of LED lighting in your home or workplace is a great way to save on your power bill, especially if you still have halogen or incandescent lamps installed.

My switchboard has old rewireable fuses, is it still safe?

If your switchboard contains old style fuses, it’s most likely time for an upgrade. Households today use far more electricity than they did 20 or 30 years (due in part to our dependence on electronics and air conditioning) which puts increased pressure on aging fuses.

Call AMG Electrical Solutions and we’ll ensure your mains cables and switchboard are more than capable of working safely well into the future. When performing a switchboard upgrade we encourage our clients to install safety switches on every circuit to ensure the long term safety of your home and family!
