24 Hour Power

Your Questions Answered

At 24 Hour Power, we can’t provide a quote over the phone because we are in the service industry. The reasons are pretty simple. It has happened endless times that a repairman came to someone’s home to fix an issue and asked for more than what they told it would cost over the phone. No matter how closely you describe your electrical problem or project, we cannot provide an accurate estimate unless we have seen the problem in-person.

If our electrician gets a problem description from you and provides you with a quote, and visits your home to see the issue is much more complex, it can be an awkward situation for everyone involved. Besides, electrical services are not a one-size-fits-all form of service. Every call requires a unique solution and we cannot just provide standard prices to everyone. So, we hope you will understand why we cannot provide an over-the-phone quote for your electrical service requirement.

That depends on the type of electrical job involved. If your home requires rewiring due of an extension or renovation project or upgrade, it can take a few weeks depending on the number of rooms and floors. Besides the actual electrical work, inspections can also affect the duration of the project. We will divide such a project into different stages to plan and to make it easier for you to understand how much time it can take. It can be difficult to fix the tasks to specific days because many factors could be involved.

Replacing an outlet can take minutes or an hour. The amount of time it takes will also depend on how your previous electrician installed the first receptacle. If everything is alright and, in its place, it may not take more than 10 minutes to change an outlet. On the other hand, if we have to work to locate the right circuit breaker, if the receptacle is painted over, and/or if it is a push-in type receptacle, it can take much longer.

At 24 Hour Power, quality and timely service are our top priorities. When you choose us, whether for a new installation project, repairs, or upgrades, you can expect nothing less than top-quality electrical services and products. This is why we use only the top-grade and certified products and components available on the market.

Given that electricity systems are much more reliable nowadays, it is easy to forget or overlook their routine maintenance needs to keep your home safe against electrical hazards. In order to prevent the risks of electrical hazards in your home, office, or commercial building, it is recommended to have a licensed electrician conduct electrical safety checks at least once every 6 months. The frequency of inspection can vary based on how old the building is and your power consumption.

If you don’t remember the last time your home had a safety check, you should immediately call 24 Hour Power. You should schedule a safety check in the following scenarios as well:

  • You have recently installed one or more new large appliances
  • Your power bills have risen high without any apparent reason
  • You have encountered and electrical problem in your home or office
  • Your home is over 25 years old
  • Your home has outdated wiring
  • You are buying or selling a house
  • You are upgrading your old electrical system
  • You have concerns about your home’s electrical status
  • You are looking for ways to make your home more energy efficient

We have a $0 call out fee. This helps us provide a more competitive pricing and reasonable quote. Our quotes depend on a number of factors including the following:

  • Size of Electrical Job: A bigger job will take longer to finish and will cost more.
  • Complexity: The difficulty of a job can also affect the duration and thus the overall cost. We can always provide you with a timetable so that you can keep track of the project.
  • Products & Materials: The products and materials used in your project also affect the quote.

Some of the common electrical jobs include ceiling fan installation, lighting installation, safety switches, power points, rewiring, fault finding, fixing damaged cable, and circuit repair. We will provide you with the exact quote only after conducting a thorough assessment on site. This helps us prevent any surprises and improve customer satisfaction once we have completed the job.

At 24 Hour Power, we strive for transparency and openness. This is why all our job’s come with a turnaround time of one week. We would also like to make it clear that there are conditions to this turnaround time.

There are several factors that influence a typical electrical service’s turnaround time. The most important of these is the availability of components and materials. We handle all types and sizes of commercial and residential electrical projects in Melbourne and we don’t want to disappoint our clients by making promises that we cannot deliver on. From experience, we know what it takes to complete each type of job and the custom requirements that can arise.

This helps us set up customer expectations and ardently deliver on them, while also allowing you to stay prepared.

Smoke alarms need to be replaced every 10 years. This is required under the Australian Standard. After this, it is expected that these systems may not be able to operate effectively because of factors like build-up of insects and contaminants, and corrosion.

No matter what type of smoke alarm you may have, a 9-V battery-powered system or a mains powered system with 9V battery backup, the removable battery needs to be replaced every year. It is further recommended that the smoke alarm is replaced in the following scenarios:

  • The smoke alarm has become dirty or clogged up beyond repair
  • It is an older type of smoke alarm without photoelectric sensors. The system will need to eb upgraded to ensure optimal safety and protection against potential fire hazards.

If you are not sure about the status or lifespan of your existing smoke alarms, it is recommended to contact us for an inspection.

Safety switches are an essential component of your home’s electrical safety system. Just like any other equipment, they should be regularly checked to ensure they are working properly and are reliable. Manufacturers suggest running monthly tripping using the test button on the switch. While some may suggest testing the electrical safety switch twice or at least once a year, it is best to test them once a month.

It can be impractical for many people to run a monthly test because they see safety switches only when they check the switchboard. So, you should test the switches at least once 3 months. It is recommended to schedule a maintenance and inspection routine with 24 Hour Power for optimal electrical safety.

The safety switches in your home will go off in the following situations:

  • Damaged wiring
  • Damaged or faulty appliances
  • Bad weather
  • Nuisance tripping
  • Defective switches

If you are unsure about the safety switches in your home, it is recommended to call us at 1300 016 667 for regular inspection and testing.

There are many reasons why a safety switch or circuit breaker may trip. Some of the common ones include:

  • Temporary Electrical Faults: These may not require the services of an electrician as they may be easily fixed.
  • Damaged/Worn-Out Wiring: Such wiring is no longer reliable and requires electrical repair.
  • Power Breakdown/Heavy Rainfall: This situation requires immediate electrician service.
  • Thunderstorm/Lightning: You may not have to do anything as it can resolve itself.

It is recommended to turn off all the lights and re-check the safety switch.

If the safety switch or circuit breaker keeps tripping, it can be due to:

  • A short circuit
  • A ground fault
  • An overloaded circuit

In this case, it is recommended to make a service call to 24 Hour Power to inspect the system. Electrical safety inspections are amongst our specialties and we offer unparalleled safety, convenience, professionalism, and reliability. As part of the electrical service, it is recommended to get a safety switch check at least once a month.

LED lights typically consume 90% less energy compared to incandescent bulbs. They are also much more efficient compared to CFL bulbs. Lighting can account for 10% to 20% of a home or business’ energy bill. So, when you make a switch, you can expect significant energy savings.

The amount of savings you can make will eventually depend on the size of your property and your lighting requirements. Incandescent lights will use around 60W power compared to 10 LED watts. LEDs use 5 times lesser energy. Your savings will not only be in terms of the energy you save but also in the longevity of the bulbs. LEDs can last almost 25 times longer compared to incandescent bulbs.

When compared to halogen bulbs, LEDs consume 85% lesser energy while generating the same level of illumination. Besides, LEDs can last over 10 times longer. If you need an accurate estimate of your potential savings, feel free to contact 24 Hour Power at 1300 016 667 or write to us.

When it comes to installing lights, we provide the quote on site. The cost will be affected by many factors. Installing lights involves working with an electrical system and it is best handled by a professional electrician. The key factors that affect the cost of installing lights include:

  • Lighting Cost Per Square Foot: The effectiveness of a lighting fixture depends on the fixture, the lightbulbs used, and the size of the room.
  • Type of Light Fixture: The type of light fixture used is a big factor affecting the cost of installation.
  • Removal Costs: The existing light fixture will have to be removed for installing the new lights. It may have defunct wiring. Complex fixtures can take time for full removal and can affect the cost.

Labour costs also affect the final quotation. Eventually, these costs will depend on the complexity and duration of the job.
