Frequently Asked Questions
  • What can I expect electricians to fix?

    Electricians in Johannesburg install and maintain all of the electrical and power systems for our homes, businesses, and factories. It’s a great idea to have an electrician in your contact list. They install and maintain electrical wiring, equipment and machines. In addition, electricians generally focus on either construction or maintenance, although many do both.

    The following objects can be fixed by an electrician:

    - Electronics/ technology
    - Appliances
    - Light fixtures
    - Electrical wiring (plugs, switches and chords)
  • How do I know that my electrician is qualified?

    You might come across electricians in Johannesburg who have not undergone the necessary training or registration. It’s compulsory to be a registered electrician in order to legally operate in South Africa. As a client, it’s advisable to log into the Electrical Conformance Board of SA (ECBSA) website. This body plays a central role in registering electricians across the country. It allows you to confirm whether the given contractor has all the necessary licenses and experience.

    You will have the option to look up an electrician by the area, ECB number, company name, electrician’s name or the DoL number. Whichever option you choose, it will indicate whether the given person is right for you and has the necessary qualifications. You’ll be sent a confirmation message with the details. Once you’ve done this, you can decide if you want to proceed.
  • Do I need to provide tools for the electrician to use?

    It depends on the electrician and the tools that they have available to them. However, a reputable electrician in Johannesburg will have all of the necessary tools to complete their job effectively. There are certain tools that electricians will need for more complicated projects and sometimes people don’t have them readily available at home.
  • Can I do my own electrical wiring?

    No, you cannot do your own electrical wiring unless you are qualified to do so. Your wiring must be done by a professional in Johannesburg in order to be safe and recognised by insurance. Licensed electricians are required to know the current electrical code too. If you go to the extent of changing or adding electricals, you must follow the regulations. In addition, professionals in Johannesburg will purchase the correct material, in the correct amounts, creating the least waste possible which can save you money in the end.
  • How do I protect my property from electrical fires?

    The first step is having a licensed electrician in Johannesburg to inspect your home. They can identify any fire hazards. Secondly, you must follow their advice and involve them in the process of maintaining or changing electricals. There’s also a newer technology on the market called Arc Fault Breakers. They are required in new buildings and can be added to older wiring in older homes. If the breaker detects a spark, it shuts off electricity to those circuits. Proper grounding and lightning protection is also recommended.
