If you are concerned about the condition of your electrical equipment contact BCS Electrical to have it checked today and keep the emergency number handy on your fridge or in your phone in case of problems in the future.

BCS Electrical can assist with prevention of electrical fires and breakdowns with some of the following services:

  • Thermal imaging – this can highlight hot spots and enable BCS Electrical to identify where a hidden problem is occurring.
  • Fuse box – these can be upgraded including modern fuses which are easy and safe to replace and for householders to check.  You also need to ensure you have a safety switch installed to shut down the power automatically in the event of a problem.
  • Rewiring – some homes may not have been wires by a licensed professional and this can lead to some serious hazards.  BCS Electrical can take a look at the wiring in place to ensure it is safe.
  • Lighting – an assessment of your lighting could reveal hazards particularly where older light globes are running hot adjacent to timber and insulation.  It’s recommended householders replace with cooler LED lights.
  • Electrical test tagging – BCS Electrical offers an electrical test tagging service for electrical appliances, tools and equipment.  This can be done at their showroom or on site, depending on the number of items involved.  This can identify a potential problem.  Checks usually also include a visual inspection for potential hazards too.
LIGHTING FIRE: Older lighting can often be a fire hazard. More modern LED lighting is much cooler. Is it time you had a professional assess your lighting?
