Maintenance & Emergency

Electricity is a core part of our everyday lives today. We can barely imagine life without it. 

But things go wrong and when they do, you need a reliable electricity services provider on your side to get you kicking again, whether you are a business or individual. 

Maintenance is the surefire way to prevent things going wrong in the first place. 

In either case, WCG Electrical is a reliable partner for all your maintenance and emergency electrical needs.

Hot water system repairs

A hot water system is vital to our modern lives, providing the warm water needed to wash clothes, do the dishes or have a shower. This is why it is vital to know the signs of a failing hot water system.

Ever noticed a slight change in the quality of water coming out of shower? Does the water taste different or is the colouration affected? These can both be symptoms of a failing water heating system. 

Whatever the reason and however it shows itself, when your hot water system fails, WCG Electrical can provide the rapid repairs you need to get kicking again. 

Switchboard upgrades & repairs

Switchboards are the central hub that enable power to your home or business to work effectively. 

Due to short-circuits and other issues, rapid repairs are sometimes needed to get your switchboard functioning again at short notice. When this happens, we’re there to help when you need it most.

Most switchboards are old and ill-suited to modern needs. When you decide to make the inevitable upgrade, we’re there to ensure your upgrade is effective.

Why should a switchboard upgrade be considered?
  • Old switchboards are likely to overload
  • Lower risk of fires, shocks and short-circuits
  • Reduces the risk of fuses blowing due to power overloads
  • To meet compliance with regulations in homes and businesses
  • Solar installs often need new switchboards
Signs that a switchboard upgrade is needed:
  • The age of a home is 25 years +
  • Flickering lights
  • Fuses blowing
  • Unusual noises, sparks or shocks
  • Old wiring (black or grey wires) indicative of wear
  • Short circuiting appliances
  • Discoloured/ hot power points

Test and Tag

Test and tag is a term used to ensure that appliances comply with Australia’s WHS and electrical safety regulations.

Test and tags are carried out both in a maintenance context and also sometimes after repairs or new installs have been carried out as a result of emergency repairs.

WCG Electrical has extensive experience testing and tagging. We carry out test and tags regularly, both after installing new systems but also after maintenance and emergency repairs.
