  • Troubleshooting Common Whole House Fan Problems

    A whole house fan refers to an oversize fan that is installed within an attic in order to bring in cool air from outside when the interior of the house is very hot.

  • The Basics of Living Off the Grid

    Every year, more and more people are converting to what is known as 'off-grid living'. 'The grid', of course, refers to the power grid. Technically speaking, living off the grid is living without any of the main utilities provided by society, namely electricity, water, sewage, and gas. While this may seem like an extreme scenario, it has a certain appeal to it; self-reliance, peace and quiet, reduced fossil fuel use, and a safe place to hide in the event of a zombie apocalypse.

  • A Dangerous Inconvenience: When You Need an Emergency Electrician

    When something goes wrong around the home, you generally want to get it fixed as soon as possible. A broken window? That can't wait, unless you feel comfortable sleeping in a room with a piece of cardboard protecting you from the elements. Your toilet won't flush? That needs to be dealt with immediately, since you probably don't want to have to dash over to your neighbour's house when nature calls. Sure, smaller things can be fixed as time allows, and you can live without your washing machine or TV for a few days, if they happen to give up.

About Me
Exposed Wires: The Complexities Of Electrical Installation

Jonathon here. I am currently completing my electrical apprenticeship and I have to say, it has been a challenge. Before I started, I didn’t realise that there was so much involved in wiring a house or building. Safety, efficiency, aesthetics and costs all have to be taken into account. My boss is so patient. One customer asked us to leave electrical wires exposed because he wanted an “industrial effect”. My boss explained that it would be illegal and they compromised. I have really learnt that electrical installation is one area in which people should not take short-cuts or undertake home handiwork. This blog should help you to gain a little more insight into electrical installation and its intricacies. I hope you find it enlightening. Thank you for stumbling into my corner of the blogosphere.
