Signs You Need Electrical Maintenance

  • You’re uncertain if your electrical system complies with state regulations
  • You want to ensure your family’s safety at home
  • Reducing the risk of fire in your home is a priority
  • You’ve noticed that your power outlets are discoloured
  • Your circuit breaker frequently trips
  • You are planning renovations and may need your electrical system upgraded
  • You’ve caught your kettle switching itself off before the water has boiled

Keeping Up with Maintenance for Your Family’s Safety

A well maintained home is a safe home. This especially includes your electrical system, crucial to your household functioning and dangerous if left unchecked. Many electrical hazards do not immediately lead to problems. Although they pose serious risks to your family, they may go unnoticed if not looked for in routine maintenance.

Unnoticed risks include:

  • Deteriorating wires
  • Smoke alarms malfunctioning or running out of battery
  • Worn out powerpoints components
  • Loose connections
  • Old switchboards

Preventative maintenance is the best way to keep your family safe. GlobileNet’s team of dedicated electricians have the skills and latest technology to give your home a comprehensive inspection and make the repairs necessary to protect your loved ones. Beyond our electrical expertise, we care for your family by showing attention to detail, discussing any concerns, and recommending upgrades.

Regular Maintenance Keeps Your System Efficient

With the rising costs of living, it’s important to save money where you can. Getting your home’s electrical system to run efficiently is one of the best ways to cut ongoing costs, without reducing your quality of life. It’s good for your wallet, and good for the planet.

A good electrical maintenance plan can help you in a surprising number of ways.

Improve your AC and Heating Efficiency

Cooling and heating our homes is one of the number one energy drainers. An electrician can improve your systems efficiency by inspecting and cleaning components and ensuring proper insulation or ventilation. GlobileNet can also help you install a programmable thermostat and even integrate this with a new or existing Smart Home system. This way, your AC system never works more than it needs to and you don’t have to worry about leaving it on when you leave the house.

Upgrade your Lighting

It’s well and truly time to step away from traditional incandescent bulbs and into the world of LED (light-emitting diode) and CFL (compact fluorescent lamp) options. With so many on the market, you can choose the exact colour and luminosity to suit your home, even creating a traditional look if that is what you desire. GlobileNet takes a consultation first approach with all our work, but especially with lighting upgrades. We want our customers to feel completely comfortable in their homes, and lighting is a key part of that. Call us today and get lighting you love that also cuts down your utility bill.

Prepare for Solar Panels, including Switchboard Upgrades

Solar panels require your electrical system to have a certain capacity. A residential electrician can assess your current system and perform a switchboard upgrade or total replacement if necessary. GlobileNet does this with decades of experience, with older homes in particular, so we know how to make the adjustments without damaging other parts of your system. Trust us to help you make the switch, and start saving on energy costs today.

Staying Compliant with Regular Checks and Accurate Records

Ensuring your home’s electrical system complies with local, state and national regulations is crucial not just for legal but safety reasons. The codes are designed to keep your family, and neighbours, safe from dangers like electrical fires.

Older homes are most likely to be out of step with current regulations or operating below modern safety standards. Your home may have these issues:

  • Outdated Wiring – Knob-and-tube or aluminium wiring may not meet current safety standards. Upgrading to copper wiring ensures better conductivity and reduces the risk of electrical fires.
  • Insufficient Electrical Outlets – Older homes may have fewer electrical outlets than modern houses, leading to the use of extension cords and power strips which can overload circuits and pose fire risks. Adding more outlets where needed ensures a safer and more convenient electrical setup.
  • Ageing Electrical Panels and Fuse Foxes – Old equipment may not have the capacity to handle the electrical demands of modern appliances and devices. Upgrading improves safety and accommodates increased power needs.
  • Lack of Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters – Many older homes may lack GFCIs, which are crucial for preventing electrical shocks in areas prone to moisture, such as kitchens and bathrooms. Installing GFCIs enhances safety by quickly cutting off power in the event of a ground fault.
  • Unearthed Electrical Systems – An older home might have an electrical system without proper grounding, crucial for dissipating excess electrical energy safely. Installing grounding systems reduces the risk of electrical shock and enhances overall system stability.

With decades of experience in the Hills District, GlobileNet is familiar with all these older home issues and more. We’ll work to get your home both compliant and safe ASAP, and continue to provide affordable maintenance service for years to come. We’ll also help you keep thorough records of your home’s maintenance so that, if you decide to sell in the future, you’ll be ready to demonstrate that your home’s in tip top shape, even if it looks a little antique on the outside.

Fuss-free & Non-invasive Check-Ups

Electrical maintenance can be a lot of work, and not just for the electrical. Residents need to be home while the electrician works and often try to clean up beforehand. It’s hard to get on with another task when there’s someone moving through your house, taking things apart, putting them back together, and occasionally making holes in your walls.

It doesn’t need to be this difficult. GlobileNet electricians understand your house is your home, so we don’t expect it to look like a showroom. We take special care when handling your electrical equipment and appliances, treating your property like it’s our own.

With our latest technology, we rarely cut into your wall to inspect your electrical components. We use tiny cameras mounted on flexible probes that can be manoeuvred inside small cavities. These allow us to inspect hard-to-reach areas such behind panels, or in conduits or pipes, without the need for extensive dismantling. If we do need to cut into your wall, we use sonar technology to make sure there are no water or gas pipes that could be damaged.

The GlobileNet team makes electrical maintenance as easy, fuss-free and non-invasive as possible. Don’t make excuses for putting it off any longer, call GlobileNet today and get your home looked after.


  • Can you do an inspection before the actual electrical maintenance?
    Yes, we’re happy to provide you with a house electrical inspection.

    This would include a thorough check of your power outlets, connections, switchboard and circuit breakers, lighting, heating, ventilation and AC and more depending on your unique electrical system.

    From there, you can decide whether or not to proceed with our electrical maintenance services.
  • Will you provide me with an inspection report of your findings, even if I don’t proceed with your services?
    Yes, following our inspections we provide all our customers with a comprehensive and itemised report.
  • What is included in your electrical maintenance services?
    Our electrical maintenance service begins with a thorough inspection of all aspects of your electrical system - wiring, power outlets, connections, switchboard and circuit breakers, lighting, heating, ventilation and AC, etc. We especially check for early stages of cable deterioration. From there, we make both necessary and desired repairs or replacements.

    Our goal is for your home’s electrical system to be not just working today, but safe and efficient for years to come. Therefore, we’ll also recommend and install affordable and cost-saving energy efficient solutions for your home.

    We’ll test your smoke alarms, security alarms, and other appliances to ensure they are in full working order. Finally, we’ll provide a status report for your records and future appointments.
  • How will you customise your service to the specific needs of my home?
    We’ll always assess your unique home and discuss any areas of concern with you before we begin our maintenance services.

    Here are some ways we may customise our services:
    • Older homes: many homes in the Hills District are older and require specialised maintenance. We’ll pay particular attention to your wiring and connections, looking for signs of deterioration.
    • Newer homes: yours may feature Smart Home systems, CCTV systems, EV charging stations, and other technologies. We’ll make sure to test the functionality and efficiency of these systems.
    • Outdoor and Pool Lighting: these systems require special attention to ensure they are still weather resistant and waterproof, i.e. safe for your family.
    • Energy Efficiency: if your goal is to reduce your energy consumption and costs, our maintenance services can focus on improving your systems and appliances’ efficiency.
  • It’s been a long time since I tested my smoke alarms. When do I know is the time to do a maintenance check on them?
    You should replace the battery every 12 months, and the smoke alarm every 10 years (or sooner).

    You should also test your smoke alarms once a month, and vacuum them every six months.

    If you’re not sure when the last time your battery or smoke alarm was replaced, contact us today and we’ll come take a look.
  • I’m concerned about the old wiring in my home. What can you do to help me make sure it’s safe?
    Old wiring can increase your risks of shorts, overheating, fires and shocks.

    Our first step is to conduct a thorough assessment of your wiring. We’ll look for early signs of deterioration and corrosion, frayed wires, loose connections, overloaded circuits, and outdated components.

    We’ll then outline the necessary steps to bring your wiring up-to-date with the latest ASNZS3000 2017 Wiring Rules (Australian Standard New Zealand Standard). These may include a complete or partial rewiring, repairing connections and improving grounding and surge protection.

    Your safety is our priority. Instead of worrying about it, contact us today and let us take a look at your wiring ASAP.
  • Will you provide me with a status report for my records after you complete the electrical maintenance service?
    Yes, we provide all our customers with a comprehensive and itemised report including details of the work we’ve recently completed.

    All our work comes with a 12 Month warranty on all workmanship.
