Upgrades and Repairs
A device that quickly switches off the electricity supply if a fault is detected, to minimise the risk of electricity-related fires and incidents and injuries.
By the law passed in 1991 stated that all new homes and in buildings where electrical circuits have been added or altered, safety switches protecting power points and lighting circuits must be installed. Contact us, a licensed electrical company to inquire about your protection and your safety switches.

Signs to rewire a house
Trade Focus wants to let you in on a little secret that are the signs in which you can tell if your home must be re-wired:
- Age – If your home is above 40 years of age and across your knowledge has never been re-wired prior we could test to see if the insulation of the wires is damaged.
- Burnt Smells – A constant burning smell that can be noticed but not necessarily identified by its source could mean the electrical wires are consistently overheating and working harder than necessary.
- Sizzling Noise and Discoloured Looks – A present sizzling noise or a crackle from a light bulb as you flick the switch to turn it on can mean there is a loose or damaged connection; possibly causing problems with outlets and sockets. Discoloured and worn out outlets and sockets that begin to overheat are just greater proof of loose connections and faulty wirings that must be inspected immediately.
We are able to relocate and upgrade your meter box as well as its contents such as its switchboards. Trade Focus Electrical can assist to your allocation of the meter box as well the wiring necessary to complete the move. You may wish to relocate it due to further renovations or for greater ease of access, our electrical technicians will use their industry knowledge and experience to ensure your preferences are met the most proficient way we can.
