What’s better than sitting on your porch swing and enjoying a warm autumn evening with a cold glass of iced tea? How about swinging on your porch and sipping cold iced tea under the cool breeze of an outdoor ceiling fan? But before you enjoy the breeze, make sure that you wouldn’t put your indoor ceiling fans outside to face the elements.
While an indoor ceiling fan is perfect for cooling your home inside, the motor and blades are not made for your outside living areas. Instead, you need to consider buying an outdoor ceiling fan.
The kitchen is the heart of every home. It is the place where families come to reconnect after a long day; preparing meals and sharing stories. Consequently, kitchen renovations are one of the most valuable and popular types of home upgrades to improve both liveability and potential resale value.

That’s why it’s very important to have working smoke alarms on your property.
Along with upgrading safety switches, your smoke alarms are probably the most important piece of safety equipment that you have in your home. Yet each year people still die in house fires.

Imagine yourself sitting in front of your TV, watching your favourite crime series on Netflix. Suddenly, just when you’re about to find out who the real murderer is, the power goes out. A blackout! What to do then? Should you call an emergency electrician?
Before you start calling your licensed local electrician in Brisbane to help turn the power back on, there are things you need to do to ensure your and your family’s safety.
The safety law in Australia is pretty black and white when it comes to only having licensed electricians and/or electrical contractors doing electrical work in your home. In the most basic terms, if a job goes much beyond changing a lightbulb, you will probably need to hire a licensed electrician.

The electrical wiring in your home is something we all take for granted… when it is working. If you flick a switch and the lights turn on, or you push start on your washing machine and a cycle begins, you just assume the electrical components to your house are working and continue to go about your day.
