Up-to-date and well-maintained wiring is key to preventing electrical issues and safeguarding your home. Ampower electrical Group specialises in assessing, upgrading, and maintaining electrical calbing to meet the highest standards of safety and efficiency.

Signs of Electrical Problems

Flickering lights, frequent circuit breaker trips, or buzzing sounds from outlets are indicators that your electrical system might need an inspection

Type of wiring used

Knowing the type of wiring in your home, especially if it includes older styles like VIR or aluminimum wiring, is crucial, as these may require more frequent checks or replacement.
