How do I know my electrical repair is safe?

Safe installations are performed by competent people to appropriate industry standards. At Starpoint Electrical Services we are all licenced electricians and operate to the highest levels of safety.

Electrical Contractors must certify the work is safe and complies with regulations before supply is connected. Certifications can be independently validated for authenticity with Energy Safety.

If completed correctly, modern electrical installations will remain safe for the installation’s expected life.

Older appliances may be more volatile and safety concerns such as electric shocks must be reported to your electrical supplier as soon as you notice them.

What do I need to know about smoke alarms?

To better protect homes and families in Australia, the AS/NZS 3000 Wiring Rules and State Building Codes have a number of stringent electrical standards in place.  By Law, every house and rental property in Australia is required to have a residual current device (Safety Switch) and a 240V smoke alarm installed by a qualified electrician.  To enforce this, Australia implements stringent laws and standards to ensure that every home should have a 240V smoke alarm and a Safety Switch installed.

“Many older homes have only battery-powered smoke alarms – if indeed they have any.  In order to ensure you are able to get out of the home during a fire, you need to make sure your smoke alarm will work when you need it to.  A smoke alarm connected to the mains electricity supply, with a battery back up, is the best way to ensure you can get out during a fire.“

Queensland Government & QLD Fire and Rescue Service recommend the installation of Photoelectric Smoke Alarms.

Photoelectric smoke alarms are connected to the mains electricity supply, with a battery back up.  They are the best way to ensure you can get out during a fire.

QLD Fire and Rescue Service strongly recommends, when purchasing smoke alarms, people check that the smoke alarm they are buying complies with Australian Standards.

For further information go to CSIRO’s Activfire website which provides consumers and fire safety advisers with details of smoke alarms that have been verified as conforming with requirements of Australian Standard AS 3786-1993

Is There A Difference Between An Electrician And An Electrical Contractor?


“An electrician is known as an electrical worker or an individual qualified tradesperson.
An electrical contractor is a suitably trained individual or business that holds the required insurances and can employ an electrical worker.  Electricians are typically not allowed to perform work for the public unless under the employment of an electrical contractor.

Electrical contracting businesses are licensed and insured to perform electrical services such as:

  • Install a ceiling fan or power point
  • Install or alter a switchboard or safety switch
  • Install a split cycle air conditioner
  • Install or alter wiring or fixed appliances in a building

While electrical contractors and electricians both hold licences, only electrical contractors hold the required insurances to properly and safely operate a business.

These insurances protect the employees and home owners/business owners from insurance liabilities.  These requirements vary from state to state.” *
