Insulation Installation Electrical Safety Inspection Reports for Homes in Canberra

Ensuring the safety of your property and its occupants is crucial before embarking on any insulation upgrade in Canberra. An electrical check conducted by licensed electricians to assess potential risks and ensure compliance with safety standards. This inspection is not only a prerequisite for insulation work but is essential for safeguarding against fire hazards and electrocution. Here’s a breakdown of the process and the subsequent steps for property owners.

Electrical Safety Inspection:

  • Licensed electricians conduct a comprehensive inspection to identify unsafe wiring, damaged or exposed wires, and incorrectly rated wiring in the property.

  • Evaluation of potential adverse effects of insulation installation on electrical wiring or circuits, with consideration for the installation of a Residual Current Device (RCD) if necessary.
  • Examination of light fixtures, especially the replacement of halogen downlights with IC-4 rated LED downlights to mitigate fire risks associated with heat generation.
  • The electrician provides a safety check report outlining any identified electrical risks that must be addressed before insulation upgrades.
  • After rectification, the electrician issues a Certificate of Electrical Safety, a mandatory document submitted to the ACT Government for compliance.

Review Your Roof Insulation Assessment Report:
Concise and understandable reports provided by Alexander Watson Insulation include photos of the internal roof area, the condition of current insulation, and recommendations for any required upgrades.

Checklist for Landlords and Property Owners in the ACT:

  • Book a Roof Insulation Inspection:
  • For properties built since 1997, check the Energy Efficiency Rating (EER) in the property contract to assess insulation standards.
  • If insulation has been disturbed or upgraded, hire a certified installer to determine current insulation levels.
  • Safety tip: Avoid entering the roof space yourself.

Andy, Kaila and Ian were all more than happy to help and provide advice. Kaila organised Andy to visit my home and assess our needs, this happened very quickly and a quote was provided the same day. Delivery of the product was arranged and Ian arrived when stated, was polite and helpful in placing the materials where we requested. Overall 5 star service from all staff that I dealt with, would highly recommend this company.

We had ceiling and wall insulation installed, as well as a draughts-stopper over the bathroom fan.Because of the nature of the job, I had some requests that would not come up very often and were not that easy to work around. I found not only did Alexander Watson take careful note of my needs, it was also very flexible as the date of parts of the installation had to be changed (they depended on other jobs having been done).I would think that builders would find their competent staff and flexibility a huge benefit, as they would deal with a lot more moving parts some of which may be delayed than we did on our more simple insulation upgrade albeit a bit different from the norm.

The Watson team did an incredible job in spray foaming the shipping container, which is our temporary home. They went the famous “extra mile” to get the job done under difficult circumstances. Thanks heaps, for that! I can really recommend Watson and will use them again for my next insulation project.

Huge thanks to the team at Alexander Watson for insulating our ceiling (vacuum and re-lay) and for carrying out additional electrical work. Especially, thanks to Ash for answering our countless questions, to Jack and the install team for a fantastic job, and to Chris and Wally for all their help post-install. The service and communication of the whole team was excellent and we're really impressed with the difference their work has made to the comfort of our house. I would not hesitate to engage Alexander Watson again - happy to highly recommend this company.

Excellent service from beginning to end. Workers appeared on time and conducted their jobs in a timely manner. Work was finished within 3 weeks of the quote. Everything was carefully explained so there were no nasty surprises. Highly recommend this company for underfloor insulation. We are already starting to see a difference, with the house experiencing only a 2-degree Celsius change throughout the day.
