How do we quote?
Customers generally provide a copy of their house plans with or without an existing electrical design. We have a free consult with you to find out your needs and wants for your dream home so we can create a free customised quote. We generally quote on a per point basis, so that you can easily add or remove items to suit your budget and vision. During the development of your new home we break up the payment into progress payments throughout construction. This helps with your cashflow and budgeting so you have an idea of how your costs are running at all times during, and this is generally what you bank expects to occur.
Smoke alarms save lives. Without them in your home, your risk of death from a house fire is up to 3 times higher. Nearly half of all house fire deaths occur when people are sleeping.
Fire and Emergency Services recommends all homes are fitted with photoelectric smoke alarms (not ionization types).
Photoelectric smoke alarms are more effective than ionization types because they 'see' the smoke by detecting visible particles of combustion. For this reason, they are good at detecting smoldering fires and dense smoke and are not as prone to false alarms (from cooking etc.).
There are 2 kinds of photoelectric smoke alarms:
240-volt smoke alarms (also called 'hard-wired smoke alarms'). These are connected to the house electrical system and have a battery
9-volt smoke alarms (also called 'battery-operated smoke alarms') are stand-alone battery operated alarms.
Legislation has also been brought in that if you sell or rent your property that all homes must be fitted with photoelectric smoke detectors before sale or renting - so don't wait until then, make your home safe now!
