Here at Hott Electrics Wollongong, we have a team of experienced and qualified electricians who can help you with all your electrical needs, including upgrades. We can advise you on the best upgrades to suit your individual needs and budget, and carry out the work quickly and efficiently.
If your outlets are the old-fashioned kind that don’t have ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs), it’s time for an upgrade. GFCIs are outlets that shut off automatically if they detect a ground fault, which can prevent electrical shocks and fires.
If you find yourself using extension cords or plugging multiple devices into one outlet, it’s a sign you don’t have enough outlets to meet your needs. This can be a fire hazard, so it’s important to have a professional electrician add more outlets to your home.
If your outlets are loose or the cover plates are coming off, it’s a sign of a bigger problem. Loose outlets can cause sparks and electrical shocks, so it’s important to have them repaired or replaced by a professional.
If your circuit breaker keeps tripping, it’s a sign that your electrical system is overloaded. This can be a fire hazard, so it’s important to have a professional electrician assess the situation and make the necessary repairs.
Safety switches are a vital safety feature that can help protect you and your family from electrical shocks. They work by instantly switching off the power supply if they detect a current leak, which can prevent serious injuries or even death. If you don't already have safety switches installed in your home, we highly recommend having them fitted as soon as possible.
If your home is more than 30 years old, there's a good chance that your switchboard is outdated and no longer compliant with current safety standards. Upgrading to a modern switchboard can help protect your home from electrical fires, as well as improve your energy efficiency.
If your light fixtures are more than a few decades old, they might be outdated and inefficient. Today’s LED light bulbs use a fraction of the energy of older incandescent bulbs, so upgrading your light fixtures can save you money on your energy bill and reduce your carbon footprint
If you’re interested in going solar, Hott Electrics can assess your home’s electrical system to see if it’s up to the task. Solar panels can place a heavy demand on your electrical system, so it’s important to make sure it’s up to the task before making the switch.
If you're looking to improve your home's resale value, then you'll want to focus on electrical upgrades that will make your home more attractive to potential buyers. For example, installing new lighting fixtures or upgrading your electrical panel to a more modern one can both be great ways to add value to your home.
