Do you know if you have Residual Current Devices (RCDs) in your properties? From 2009, RCDs became a legal requirement for all homes being sold or rented in Western Australia.
If you are selling or renting a home, harsh penalties apply if RCDs are not fitted. Even if you have circuit breakers installed, RCDs are the only devices that will prevent electrocution.
At least two RCDs must be fitted to the electrical switchboard of your property to protect all general power and lighting circuits. Your RCDs must also be tested every three months to ensure they are working correctly.
If you are unsure you have RCDs fitted to any of your properties, contact Platinum Power & Air today! Our licensed electricians can help you find out if you have RCDs installed and fit them for you if you don’t. We can also undertake regular inspections and tests to ensure your RCDs are safe and compliant on an ongoing basis. Platinum Power & Air are your electrical safety experts!
Do you have smoke alarms fitted to your properties? Do you know if they are working correctly?
The Building Regulations 2012 require mains powered smoke alarms to be fitted in all existing residential buildings prior to sale or, for rental properties, before a new tenancy agreement is signed. They must also be tested at least once every year.
Smoke alarms installed in your property must be less than 10 years old and hard-wired to the mains electrical supply. A $750 infringement notice could be issued for any premise without a smoke alarm, while the seller or landlord could face a fine of up to $5000.
If you are unsure about smoke alarms in any of your properties, call Platinum Power & Air today. Our licensed electricians can help you determine if your property complies with the Regulations and take appropriate action, where needed. You can rely on the electrical safety experts at Platinum Power & Air.
Worried about security around your property?
Maybe your tenants are having trouble finding their door keys at night. Since 1 July 2015, the Residential Tenancies Regulations 1989 require most rental properties to have an electrical light installed at, or near, the main entry. The light must also be operable from inside the home.
A sensor light can be one of the most affordable and practical ways to achieve effective lighting at the porch or main entry of your property. Sensor lights activate when they detect movement, so anyone stepping in front of them will instantly be flooded with light.
Potential burglars usually like to work in the dark so a sensor light will foil their plan to break into your property, costing you money for any damage they cause. The best part is, with a sensor light your tenants will never find themselves fumbling for their door keys again! Increase your property’s security and comply with the Regulations today with porch/entry lighting from Platinum Power & Air.
To ensure optimum safety and efficiency, you need to have your electrical work performed by an experienced professional.
