Are you looking to make electrical upgrades for your current home? Over the last few years, power regulations and requirements, and electrical safety codes have changed. Since many people don’t upgrade their electrical requirements while buying more and more modern electrical amenities, electrical malfunctions may result and cause fire, especially with homes with old electrical systems. Electrical upgrades can improve the overall safety and convenience of any home. Here are the top five electrical upgrades your home may need.
Smart Home Integration
If you’re looking to make life more comfortable at home, you can have a smart home integration system installed by a professional Brisbane electrician. You can have many things automated or controlled remotely according to your preference. Here are a few suggestions to consider:
- Remote or automatic lights
- Remote-controlled sprinkler system
- Remote security and video surveillance system
- Smart alarms, sensors, and sirens
- Smart smoke alarms
- Smart thermostats
- Remote-controlled curtains or blinds
Outlets with USB ports
This is a beneficial modification for some of your outlets, so you don’t always need to use USB adapters. You can charge directly from strategic outlets placed around the home, rooms, kitchen, and even in your home office work desk.
LED lighting for your home is much better because it’s energy-efficient, so you save on your power bill. They also provide higher quality lighting that is good for the eyesight, LEDs last longer, and they’re environmentally friendly.
Upgrading old electrical panels will ensure enhanced safety and capacity for any home. It will also save money on the power bill because it guarantees a constant flow of stable electricity and eliminates issues with burnt outlets, flickering lights, and damaged appliances. You also avoid blown fuses while using more modern devices and appliances, since many new gadgets require more power.
Smart wiring in the bedroom
This can be part of the smart home integration, but it has special mention here because of its extra safety factor. You can have your bedroom lights as well as some indoor and outdoor lighting wired to your bedside. The lights can be switched on and off without getting out of bed. For added security, if you hear something inside or outside the house in the middle of the night, you can light up anywhere immediately.
