Taking Electrical Issues Seriously

If you can see it, feel it, smell it or hear it – these are real hazards. Sometimes these signs come and go, and it’s tempting to think “it’s not that bad” or “it’ll go away soon”. However, even intermittent signs need professional attention.

If you think you have an electrical emergency, call us on 1300 723 753 and we’ll respond in 25 minutes.

It’s important to take recurring issues seriously. If the same fuse keeps tripping, don’t just reset it again, get it checked out ASAP.

Preventing Electrical Hazards - 5 Steps to Take Today

Taking preventative steps to avoid electrical hazards is crucial for your family’s safety. Here’s 5 things you can do:

Common residential electrical hazards include:

  1. Never do DIY electrical work – It’s not just dangerous but also illegal
  2. Schedule regular electrical inspections – Identify hazards before they become problems
  3. Install Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs) and Safety Switches – Proper safety breaks can potentially be the difference between life and death
  4. Clean and inspect appliances – Get them checked ASAP if you spot any signs of damage
  5. Don’t overload circuits – Know your system’s capacity and don’t have too many appliances running at once, especially through powerboards. Instead, have an electrician install more powerpoints and circuits, or upgrade your home’s system.

GlobileNet is ready to investigate and repair any electrical issue in your home. We only service the Hills District so we keep our wait times short and are always just around the corner. Call us today for our nearest appointment.

Comprehensive Service - Diagnosis, Repair, Testing & Aftercare

A quality electrical repair starts with an accurate diagnosis. Previously, investigating an electrical issue involved large holes in your walls so the electrician could get behind there and see what was going on. Today, GlobileNet’s sonar technology and tiny cameras that can be manoeuvred behind walls mean an accurate diagnosis can be achieved with zero or minimal invasion into your home’s structure. By using these tools we can spot things like deteriorating wires or loose connections, and get to the bottom of your electrical problem.

Then we begin the repair process, using our expertise and attention to detail to care for your home like it’s our own. We only use the highest quality products for your family’s safety, and we always make sure to test our work so you are confident the issue is resolved. We’re so confident in our work that we provide a 12 Month warranty.

Lastly we clean up after ourselves, leaving your home in the same, or better, condition as when we found it. Treating your home and family with respect is a number one priority to us at GlobileNet so you won’t find bits of wire or boot smudges on the ground after we’ve left. We also take the time to educate you about electrical safety and the things you can do to avoid risks and hazards in your home.

Issues with Lighting

There’s few things more annoying than lighting issues. From flickering lights to bulbs blowing, no power going to a light or stuck switches, it’s frustrating to deal with and a real disruption to life. Fixing your lighting issues begins with understanding the cause of the problem. Common causes include:

Common residential electrical hazards include:

  • Overloaded circuits – This occurs when there are too many lights, appliances, or devices connected to a single electrical circuit. This can lead to flickering lights or, in severe cases, circuit breakers tripping to prevent electrical hazards.
  • Short circuits – When a hot wire comes into direct contact with a neutral wire, it causes a short circuit. This can result in excessive current flow, causing fuses to blow or circuit breakers to trip, leading to flickering or lights going out.
  • Fluctuating voltage and power surges – Sudden increases in voltage can cause bulbs to blow, while consistent fluctuations may lead to flickering lights.
  • Wrong bulb type – Incorrect bulbs cause various issues for both the bulb and fixture. In particular, using a bulb with a wattage higher than the fixture is designed for can lead to overheating.
  • Loose connections – Whether in the wiring or at the light switch or fixture, loose connection can result in unreliable power supply or flickering lights.
  • Old equipment – Worn out electrical components such as switches, outlets, and wiring may lead to poor electrical connections, increased resistance, and various lighting problems.

Addressing lighting issues requires a systematic approach and professional experience. GlobileNet is always ready to provide our expertise and attention to detail to fully diagnose and address the issue. We’ll help you get your lights back on ASAP, so you can get on with the rest of life.

Problems with Powerpoints & Power Outages

Power outages, whether the whole home or just certain circuits and single powerpoints, can be a real hassle. It’s important to take these issues seriously, starting with diagnosing the cause.

Here’s some common reasons for loss of power:

  • Faulty outlets
  • Damaged wiring
  • Overloading of circuits
  • Short circuits
  • Problems with the electrical appliances
  • External factors such as storms, faulty transformers, or issues with the power supply from the electricity company.

If you find yourself having to reset your power frequently or that particular powerpoints are still not working, it’s possible you’ve got a bigger issue. An outdated or malfunctioning switchboard may struggle to handle the electrical load, leading to disruptions. Circuits that are not properly wired or maintained can also contribute to ongoing power issues.

GlobileNet is equipped with decades of experience to thoroughly investigate and repair powerpoint and power outage issues. We’re exclusive to the Hills District and understand the problems commonly found in older homes. We help to repair and upgrade the electrical infrastructure to ensure safety, reliability, and compliance with current electrical standards.

Appliances and Electrical Hazards

Old, malfunctioning and non-compliant appliances are a real hazard to your home’s electrical system and your family’s safety.

  • Worn Out Appliances – If you’ve owned an appliance for many years, it may no longer be safe to use. If you see any signs of wear such as discoloration, cracks and especially frayed wires, it’s time to discard it or see if it can be repaired.
  • Faulty Appliances – You may notice an appliance is not working properly or is overheating. Using this appliance may have also coincided with your circuit tripping. In this case, stop using the appliance until it can be inspected and repaired. Continuing to use the appliance may cause damage to your home’s electricity system.
  • Non-Compliant Appliances – Make sure your appliances are compliant with the relevant Australian Standards by only purchasing from certified Australian suppliers or other credible retailers. Buying appliances online and especially from overseas can increase your risks of electrical hazards.

If a malfunctioning appliance has led to any sparks, smoke, smells of burning or other signs of damage, don’t take any further changes. Turn off the power to that appliance, unplug it and call an electrician to assess it ASAP.

New electrical appliances can also cause trouble when they have energy needs above your system’s capacity. Some single phrase systems are simply not able to handle the demands caused by new appliances with high energy needs. In these situations, you’ll need a professional assessment and potentially an upgrade to a three-phase power system.

GlobileNet can help you assess your appliances and your home’s system. If you’re considering upgrading to a three-phase system, GlobileNet can get you started with a free consultation.


  • I’m not sure if my wires or cables or lights need repairing. Do you charge a call out fee for an inspection?
    Our fixed call out fee is $100, but free for first time customers.

    Damaged wiring, cables or lighting fixtures can pose a serious risk to your family. If you’re experiencing issues, don’t wait until it’s a bigger problem. Contact us today and let us take a look.
  • I have some frayed wires and powerpoints that look rough on the edges. People keep saying I need to get them repaired or replaced, but they work just fine. What do you suggest?
    It’s best to get them checked and repaired or replaced. Until then, do not use those powerpoints.

    Even if they’re still functioning, frayed wires and loose powerpoints can be a real safety hazard as they increase your risk of shock, fire, and short circuits. Damaged electrical equipment may also violate safety standards and lead to issues with insurance claims in the event of an accident.

    Contact us for an inspection and quote. We’ll assess the visible damage, as well as test for early signs of deterioration in the wiring around the problem area. Don’t leave your family at risk, get in touch with us today.

    Don’t waste time wondering about who to call. Contact us for a free inspection and, if necessary, referral. We’ll get your appliance up and running ASAP.
  • I don’t want to have to call someone every time something doesn’t turn or malfunctions. Is there something you can do to keep something fixed?
    Definitely, repeat problems are both frustrating and can be a sign of a bigger safety issue.

    We’d recommend you call us for a thorough inspection. This will include things like checking your wire for early signs of deterioration and your switchboard’s capacity. From there we may suggest repairing or replacing your wiring, switchboard, powerpoints, switches, surge protectors, etc.

    As for your appliances, you should maintain them according to the manufacturer instructions, and replace them with energy efficient models if possible. We can help you install new appliances. We also always recommend regular electrical maintenance every 5 years, especially if you reside in an older building.
