Home wiring

Home wiring safety checks provide peace of mind about the condition of electrical wiring in the home.

A safety check provides an independent assessment of the fixed electrical wiring, including the main switchboard and fixed appliances such as electric ovens; hotplates; range hoods; and your electric hot water service. Electric heating, cooling and fans are all checked to make sure they are safe.

Homeowners wishing to have a home wiring safety check should use a registered electrical contractor or a licensed electrical inspector, these may be found in your local newspaper or via the internet.

The Energy Safe Victoria website has further information about electrical safety.
