The most likely culprit is a faulty appliance. To determine if this is the cause, unplug all electrical items (fridge, kettle, toaster, washing machines, irrigation controller) from your power points and reset the circuit breaker. If you are able to reset the circuit breaker, then plug in electrical items one at a time, until you can identify the problem. If you cannot reset the circuit breaker, contact MPE.
Can you change a single power point to a double or quad outlet?
Yes! As long as it does not exceed 20 points on that power circuit. You can have 20 single outlets, or 10 doubles or 5 quad power points on 1 power circuit. Contact us today and we can arrange an electrician to help you with your power points in your home.
Are you able to move my switchboard?
Yes, we can move the switchboard which contains the power, lighting and other circuit breakers, but not your electricity meter. We can arrange all aspects of relocating your switchboard, whether you are renovating your home, looking at subdividing your property or just to make access easier. MPE will carry out all work while meeting Australian standards and electrical safety regulations.
I have purchased lights, or power outlets, or ceiling fans from a shop. Are you able to install them?
Yes, we are able to install your electrical items and inform you about the ideal locations for installation. For instance, some lights can only be surface mounted or recessed into a ceiling. Some lights and power points are designed for indoors whilst others are specifically designed to withstand the elements outside.
My smoke alarm keeps beeping.
The most likely issue is that the battery needs to be replaced, or the smoke alarm may have reached the end of its lifespan.
My lights keep flickering.
Loose wiring is the most likely reason lights may flicker and can cause a fire if left unattended.
