Why Is Property Maintenance So Important?

When you’re on the property ladder with a commercial development, there’s so much more to think about than when you’re in the residential game.

The high standards that need to be kept might include complying with health and safety regulations, or it may just be your own high mark for how you want to deal with occupants. Whatever your needs for maintenance services, it’s important to not let things slip away from being controlled. If something needs tending to, but you can’t get to it for a few days, make sure it’s a priority when you do have the funds or time to get it sorted.

If you want to make sure you aren’t ever put in a position where maintenance becomes something of an emergency because the building hasn’t been monitored properly, Prime Choice Electrical Services has a team of professionals that can make the whole process streamlined.

What’s so important about keeping up property maintenance?

Because the occupancy of your commercial building relies on people actually wanting to lease a particular premises from you, there’s a call to really make sure people are attracted to it. This might come from how clean it is, the quality of the air circulating in the spaces or even the fact that there is no work that needs to be done.

Did you know hiring a company to manage the maintenance of a building is one of the best ways to keep on top of anything that arises. The key to maintenance is to be proactive, not reactive. If something major happens, it might be too late to fix the issue quickly and cheaply.When major repairs or maintenance have to be carried out in an office space, for example, it can be totally disruptive to the day-to-day operations of the lease holder. That’s not something people want to have to go through, and if there’s another option on the market that doesn’t appear as if major works will be regularly required, that may well be their first choice.

Property maintenance can help to keep rental yields high and potential for capital gains up as well. Without regular maintenance, it’s possible that a commercial building can fall into a state of disrepair and lose value. It might also be in the trap of being vacant for long periods of time while maintenance is carried out, which means loss of income.

Avoid these pitfalls of the property industry, and get in touch with Prime Choice Electrical today to make sure the maintenance of your commercial building is looked after at all times.

Electrical Tips for Christmas

The Festive Season is upon us. It’s this time of year that families gather together to decorate the house, put up the tree, and cover their homes in colourful lights and decorations. For many families, a favourite Christmas tradition is driving around their town, marvelling at the Christmas lights that adorn each home.

Below are our Electrical Tips for Christmas:

1.     Don’t use any more than 3 standard sets of lights for one power board

It takes a good amount of power to make those pretty twinkling lights, so a great way to make sure you don’t overload the electrical system in your home and cause a problem is to limit the number of lights plugged into a single power board. Use no more than 3 in each.

2.     Turn your lights off before bed

Leaving lights on for long periods of time, such as overnight, can cause them to overheat. This increases your risk of electrical faults and fires. Make sure you turn your lights off before bedtime. You’ll be saving money on your power bill, too!

3.     Get Battery Powered or Solar Lights Where Possible

Battery Powered or Solar lights don’t use the home’s electricity, so not only will you be saving money on your power bill, but you’ll be lowering your risk of lights overheating as they are low voltage and give off less heat than traditional electrical lights.

4.     LED Lights

If you can’t get solar or battery powered, try LED Lights. They’ll save you money and they don’t get as hot as electrical lights.

5.     Use Common Safety Practices

While Christmas is the Season of Giving, it’s important not to give your children the opportunity to get a hold of matches or candles. Remember to keep your tree away from warm areas, like heaters or fireplaces, and keep your lights away from combustible material as much as possible.

One of the most important things to remember this season is to ensure that your Smoke Alarms are in good and working order, so you’re prepared. While these steps can decrease your chances of electrical faults, Smoke Alarms save lives, so reach out to Prime Choice Electrical Services today and ask us to get your smoke alarms Christmas-ready.

Electrical Safety Tips for Christmas

Electrical Safety Tips are important this holiday season as it is now upon us and amidst the excitement, never forget that electrical safety is imperative for your home this Christmas.


When it comes to turning your house into a Christmas extravaganza and proving to the whole neighbourhood that you are Santa’s little helper, first and foremost ensure that you do not cut costs and be very wary when buying overseas lights from eBay or any other store over the internet.


These lights most likely do not pass the Australian Safety Standards and can be very dangerous to your household.


Here are Prime Choice Electrical Safety tips for putting up Christmas lights and other electrical decorations:


• Check the wires for any signs of damage or wear and tear.
• Checked for damaged sockets, ripped and bare wires or anything that look unsafe.
• Check over the manufactures instructions again.
• Check all globes are fitted properly. DO NOT USE if some are missing.
• Only use lights that have passed the Australian Safety Standards.


If you decide to buy second-hand lights, they need to be checked by a licensed Electrical Contractor to make sure they are safe to use. Safety requirements for Christmas lights have changed in recent years, some second-hand lights may not meet the latest safety requirements.

The Difference Between Commercial, Residential and Emergency Electricians

An electrician is not a one size fits all profession and there are marked differences in the skillset required to complete commercial, residential and emergency electrical installations. Each type of job requires different techniques, equipment, load demands and legislation to abide by and choosing a specialised electrician for your area will amount to a better-quality installation.

Residential

Unless you are a qualified electrician, doing electrical work in your home is against the law and will probably invalidate your home insurance policy. Even such simple tasks as replacing a lead on a plug must be done by a licensed residential electrician. Small projects can include installing a new power outlet or repairing a light switch.

Efficiencies of LED Lighting

Commercial lighting in larger spaces can account for up to 40% of a business’ overall electricity usage and subsequent energy bills, making it one of the priciest outgoings for companies. Essential for the running of any business, not to mention the health and safety of employees, companies can cannot simply cut back by turning the lights off more often. However, the type of lights that are installed at a business premises can drastically impact the overall running costs. At Prime Choice Electrical we are committed to assisting our clients implement efficient lighting solutions. Quite often we discuss the benefits of LED lighting with our clients.

Why LEDs?

When we, Prime Choice Electrical work with you to install LED lighting, we strongly promote its energy efficiencies and highlight the better quality of light it provides. LED’s are brighter and transmit a whiter, cleaner light than traditional luminescent bulbs and are typically lower wattage. Replacing a typical bulb with a LED bulb can help to reduce lighting electricity costs by up to 60% making the payback on these installations as little as 1-2 years, depending on the size of the premises.

Longer Lasting

When Prime Choice Electrical works on LED lighting installations we also provide our clients with much lower maintenance costs than traditional bulbs, lasting up to 10 years from the first time they are switched on. Normally within this timeframe, typically bulbs would need to be replaced upwards of once per year, amounting to 10 bulbs per LED light, meaning more money spent on fittings, installation and maintenance over this period, than it could cost to refit the entire premises with LED lights!

Less Wastage

Aside from using a lower wattage, LED lighting provides a better like for like product than traditional bulbs. By producing ‘cleaner’ light and directing the beams directly below to ground level where they are needed, 100% of the energy used by the bulbs is converted into light, whereas traditional filament bulbs convert some of that energy into heat, which is wasted and transmitted into the air around.

Business Guide: Maintenance of Electrical Systems

Like most things in life, electrical components and installations require regular maintenance to stay in top condition. Read on below to find out the regular maintenance guide for commercial businesses.

Fire alarms

Regular maintenance of electricals includes inspection and testing of the very systems employed to keep the business safe – the fire alarms. These systems should be tested weekly by caretaking staff for the building, who should also record their findings in the systems logbook and immediately rectify any problems. Once every 6 months companies are required to source a specialist to inspect their system to ensure compliance with current regulations and produce an overall report.

Thermographic Surveys

Sometimes faults in electrics are not easy to identify, either because the problem is internal wiring that is in walls or sealed trunking, or because there are seemingly no tell-tale signs of a problem. A thermographic survey can be employed to monitor heat levels of electrical installations and identify any areas where there is a load imbalance or potential fault in a system, without anybody coming into contact with it.

Lighting

Many businesses use emergency lighting to light external areas such as walkways and car parks, as well as to display emergency exits and hazardous areas. As the purpose of emergency lighting installations is to keep employees safe, it must always be free from dirt, working adequately and able to run on a back up battery, which is why maintenance of this electrical system is required regularly.

Prime Choice Electrical Services has an outstanding reputation as an electrical services provider for security & alarms throughout Sydney and are available whenever you need experienced and reliable electrical services.

All You Need To Know About LED Lights

LEDs are a semiconductor that emits light when energised. Most households and industries across Sydney have shifted to LEDs, mostly because of their efficiency and brightness. However, some people often misinterpret how LED lights work, which leads to assumptions and distorted facts.

Generally, these mislead views are evolving around incoherent information and resistance to new technologies. You may have been so curious about LED lights, and hearing rumours might have fuelled your confusion – Are they good or not?.

To assist you in understanding all that you need to know about LED lights, we’ve explained some common myths and facts.

Myth #1: LED Lights are Costly

LED bulbs prices have significantly dropped over the past years, despite still being slightly expensive compared with incandescent bulbs. A traditional filament bulb costs less but has a short lifespan. On the other hand, an LED’s price speaks for its reliability. So you save more with a single LED bulb than a handful of incandescents over time.

Myth #2: LEDs Don’t Last Long

The assumption of LED lights being short-lived is by far way out of context, since LED products have gained recognition for their long serviceable life. LED lights can operate significantly longer compared to standard halogen and fluorescent lights. A typical fluorescent lamp can last about three to five times shorter than LED lights, while standard halogen lights operate for twenty-five times lesser. Thus, among the three most common light bulbs, LEDs are capable of giving you a brighter light for a longer period.

Myth #3: LEDs are Harmful

Modern LEDs are composed of inorganic materials, which means that they do not contain hazardous substances like mercury and other noble gases present in fluorescent lamps. Additionally, LEDs are 100% recyclable and eco-friendly, debunking any myth that says LEDs are harmful.

Myth #4: LED Takes Time to Light-up

Unlike standard fluorescent lamps, LED lights do not take much time to light-up. Once you switch it on, it will instantly provide the light you needed without the annoying flickers or warming up. Modern programmable strobe lights even use large LEDs to produce that upbeat light show.

Myth #5: LED Lights Can’t Tolerate Cold Temperatures

LED bulbs work best under cold temperatures. Since they dont create much heat, LEDs are ideal for lighting areas that need to be kept cool. While the extreme cold does not generally affect the lifespan of LED bulbs, they are vulnerable to extreme heat, just like any other circuitry.

Myth #6: LED Bulbs Only Give Off Bright light

Nowadays, varieties of LED bulbs giving off warmer shades are widely available. Moreover, keep in mind that there are LED lights that can be tuned in to generate different colour temperatures.

It is necessary to avoid confusion and misinformation. You should first know the essential facts about LED lights before you jump into vague assumptions. With factual data, you can then decide whether to use LED bulbs for your home and building lighting solutions.

Moreover, LED lighting systems take a bit of time and skill to install. That’s why Prime Choice Electrical Services is always available to provide you with quality electrical services.

We have highly skilled and trained Electricians capable for your LED installations. Our team across Sydney will gladly share relevant information and provide you with exceptional electrical services.

Energy Efficiency FAQs

Many people consider energy efficiency as merely avenues to save energy and money. At Prime Choice Electrical Services, we frequently speak with our clients about energy efficiency. At Prime Choice Electrical Services, we emphasise that there’s more than just energy and cost savings. On that, here are the 10 frequently asked questions on energy efficiency:

1. What is energy efficiency?

Energy efficiency is the measure of energy productivity of any service or goods. When there’s lesser energy needed to produce an output, the activity is then considered energy-efficient. It is also associated with energy intensity, which is commonly used as a measurement in economic goods and service industries.

2. How energy-efficiency improves over time?

Energy-efficiency will improve when both our technology and economy go at a more advanced pace. For instance, improved energy-efficiency indicates using less gasoline to drive the same amount of miles. It’s also connected with improving thermal efficiency as power plants generate more electricity with less fuel.

Moreover, it improves with the emerging energy-efficient technologies such as the transition from kerosene and incandescent bulbs to compact fluorescents and LEDs.

3. Who can offer energy efficiency activities?

Accredited Service Providers (ASPs) are businesses authorised to offer energy efficiency operations. They can provide discounted energy-saving services and products to residential customers. These businesses also work with third-party installers such as electricians and air conditioning technicians.

4. Is it compulsory to upgrade our home to energy-efficient products?

No, the NSW government won’t require you to upgrade your home with energy-efficient products. Like any other consumer decision-making, the choice is solely on you in selecting the energy-consuming products you must have at home. But it’s an advantage to have energy-efficient products as it utilises energy at an optimal rate for a low cost.

5. What difference does replacing a regular light bulb with an energy-saving bulb can make?

Replacing your old light bulb with LED light bulbs can prevent 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide from being emitted to the atmosphere from power plants. Also, energy-efficient LED bulbs can last for more than a decade, helping you save hundreds of dollars throughout the bulb’s lifetime.

6. How do LED bulbs become very energy-efficient compared to other bulbs?

LED bulbs convert less energy into heat, and it’s noticeable as they don’t get hot. It illuminates bright light due to the movement of electrons in its semiconductor materials. The semiconductor exhibits both properties of conductor and insulator that results in the high efficiency of the bulb compared to regular bulbs.

7. Does the energy star label in products signify energy efficiency?

Yes. Products bearing star labels indicate a more energy-efficient performance than standard products, thereby saving money and energy. The energy star certified products include appliances, HVAC equipment, lighting, and office machines. Using these products can slash 30 per cent energy cost in your home or commercial space.

8. How can I become energy-efficient without spending a large sum of money?

Most people often think that an energy-efficient living is achievable with upgrades in appliances and the use of solar panels. But it is not always the case. You can be energy-efficient by using energy in a disciplined and effective manner.

9. What are the indirect benefits of energy efficiency projects?

It might be surprising that energy-efficient projects contribute to increased health, less stress and better productivity. Old technologies often are noisy, smelly and break down quickly, which is annoying and stressful.

Prime Choice Electrical Services can help you when it comes to an energy-efficient project. Our licensed electricians offer electrical system upgrades following recommended specifications towards energy-efficient living. With extensive experience in this space, our team ensures to provide energy-efficient services to all our customers.
