Regular electrical safety checks are an important part of keeping your home and family safe. An experienced electrician can inspect the wiring in your home, identify potential hazards, and suggest corrective measures if needed.
Routine inspections help to ensure that your electrical system works safely and efficiently, avoiding common problems such as overloading circuits and fire hazards.
Having an electrician come in to regularly check all areas of the electrical system is essential for rental providers, homeowners and businesses. This helps identify any potential faults or future problems with your electrical system, so you can address them before they become serious and extremely costly.
Electrical systems tend to age and deteriorate over time, which increases the potential for damage caused by wear and tear or other issues such as rodents chewing on wiring. Having a regular inspection helps to prevent these types of problems from occurring, keeping your home safe.

Pakenham Test and Tag Services
Our team of highly trained and certified professionals are here to provide you with comprehensive test and tag services that keep your workplace compliant with industry standards.
Test and tagging is a process in which electrical appliances are thoroughly inspected for safety. This includes the inspection of cords, plugs, switches, insulation, terminals, circuit breakers and other components for any signs of wear or damage. It also involves testing to determine if the equipment is electrically safe to use.
Upon completion of the tests, a tag is affixed to the appliance that indicates it has been tested and passed all safety checks. The importance of having your equipment tested can never be understated – faulty wiring can lead to fires or even electrocution in extreme cases.
Our test and tag specialists are dedicated to providing you with premium customer service every time! All our staff have undergone extensive training courses so they know exactly what needs to be done in order to ensure a safe environment for everyone involved. Contact us today for more information on how you can book a test and tag service appointment at very competitive prices.
Types of building electrical system testing services that we provide
Our electricians perform various types of electrical tests. Testing the electricity of a building involves inspecting wiring, checking insulation resistance, continuity testing, earth leakage current testing, measuring voltage drop and power factor measurements.
Visual inspection involves examining the visible components of any installations to make sure everything is in working order and that there are no signs of wear or damage that could affect performance. The visual inspection checks for correct connection points, labels and markings so that it can be determined whether it complies with local regulations. In addition to this, we also use specialised equipment such as voltage detectors to check for live wires or loose connections.
Continuity testing is a vital procedure used to ensure proper functioning of electrical installations. This type of test verifies if electricity flows from one point to another without interruption or short circuit by measuring resistance along the path of the circuit’s flow. Low-resistance readings indicate a good connection whereas high-resistance readings indicate a poor connection or even a break in the circuit which could cause dangerous shocks or fires if left unchecked.
Insulation Resistance Testing (IR) checks how well insulated two different circuits are when they’re connected together at one point in order to avoid any undesired cross-circuit currents flowing between them leading to faulty operation or dangerous shocks due to incorrect wiring practices. This test uses very high voltages which makes it particularly important for detecting weak or broken insulation materials which otherwise would not be detected by normal visual inspections alone; ensuring absolute safety for end users of any given installation.
Earth Leakage Current Testing measures the amount of current leaking from an energised system into earthing devices such as ground rods; identifying any broken wires or faulty components before they become hazardous due to improper grounding methods implemented during installations; preventing potential electrocution risks caused by unbalanced earthing systems caused through improper wiring practices.
Voltage Drop Testing examines how much voltage drops across different loaded circuits within a given installation showing any discrepancies between desired currents & voltages supplied versus those actually received on-site indicating any possible overloads; ensuring proper power supply & distribution throughout all parts within an electricity network.
Power Factor Measurement assesses how effectively energy is being used across different parts within an electricity network; making sure all necessary loads receive adequate & stable power while avoiding unnecessary wastage due to poor management practices throughout its operation period.
By carrying out these tests, we can ensure that the electricity being supplied is safe and compliant with all current regulations. This provides peace of mind for our customers as well as ensuring their safety. Our team is highly trained and experienced in testing electrical systems so you can rest assured that any test carried out will be done professionally and to a high standard.
