Is your home safe and free of electrical hazards? Generally speaking, the homes around Botany were built prior to 1960. Many of these homes have had additions and extensions and appear to be quite modern on the outside. Despite this, I continually discover that the electrical systems within these homes are often forgotten about.
So, is your wiring and switchboard up-to-date? Ambient Electrical has serviced many of these homes and have discovered most do not meet the safety requirements set out in Australian Standards AS3000.
These homes I refer to have old wiring which has deteriorated and are a potential fire and shock hazard. Furthermore, this old cabling is protected by ceramic fuses that no longer meet the basic Code requirements.
If your switchboard looks like this than I strongly recommend that you consider getting an inspection by a qualified electrician in Botany.
Why consider getting an Electrical Inspection? Unlike your plumbing, Electricity is something you do not see until something goes wrong. A large portion of your electrical installation is hidden behind walls, ceilings and floor boards. For most of us, we don’t realise we have an electrical issue until it’s too late. A tripped circuit is one thing. But what if we notice a smouldering scent or witness sparks and fire at the switchboard?
Hire Ambient Electrical as Your Emergency Botany Electrician
An electrical inspection by a qualified person will test your wiring throughout your home or business premise. They will make an evaluation on the state of your electrical installation. A report will be issued outing any recommendations necessary. If work is required then Ambient Electrical strongly suggests that the home or business owner requests an itemised quote.
This quote should then be compared with other quotes from qualified electricians. Making a decision on your preferred Contractor should not be based on price alone. A Contractor’s reputation should be strongly considered when making that final decision. Reading independent Customer reviews and watching video testimonials is an effective way to choose an Electrician that’s right for you.

Are you seeking expert advice on installing LED lighting in your Botany home or business premise?
Ambient Electrical has installed LED lights in both homes and businesses in Botany. Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting is a rapidly developing technology that is offering useful alternatives to traditional incandescent, fluorescent and halogen lighting. Good quality LEDs provide excellent lighting and offer major benefits.
Quality LED’s have a lifespan of 30000-40000 working hours. In real terms, leaving your lights on for 8 hours a day 365 days of the year you can expect a lifespan between 7 and 14 years. The obvious benefit is the lowered maintenance costs and inconvenience of having to replace globes more regularly and in hard to reach places like Atriums and stairwells.
One of the defining features of LEDs is that they emit light in a specific direction, which reduces the need for reflectors and diffusers that can lower efficiency. By comparison, Compact Fluorescents (CFL), Halogen and Incandescent globes only emit 50 to 60% of the total light produced whilst the remainder is lost in the light fitting and surrounds.
Arguably, the greatest benefit comes by way of their running costs for homes and Businesses in Botany. At 80% more efficient than traditional incandescent globes and marginally less for Halogen and CFL’s it pays to make the switch. Energy usage has become more important in recent years with rising power costs. On average, lighting contributes to around 11% of household energy use and by installing LEDs.
