Detailing the types of electrical jobs Patrick regularly encounters..

May 2021

Patrick & the Brite Sparx team receive numerous call outs from North Shore residents for a variety of issues. Below are the top 5 most common call out reasons that we can assist with.

#1 - Faulty Lights

Flickering lights, dodgy switches or issues with brightness can be really frustrating, and are often due to poor installation. It’s one of the most common reasons Brite Sparx get called upon, and they can have the issue sorted in no time.

#2 - Power Surges

A power surge can occur due to a number of reasons; faulty wiring, your appliances, or a storm. They can cause damage to the wiring in your home and even your appliances, so the best thing to do is call on Brite Sparx to help you identify the cause and get it resolved quickly.

#3 - Tripping Circuit Breaker

Circuit breakers are designed to prevent damage to the wiring and appliances in your home, so when it trips, it is doing its job. You may find though that it may be tripping too often. An overloaded power board can be the cause, which can be resolved by spreading power use around the home, and make sure not to connect multiple power boards together.

#4 - No Hot Water

It’s never a good start to the day when you go to take a shower and the water is freezing! Another really common issue on the North Shore that we can help with is no hot water. You could have a faulty thermostat, burnt out hot water switch, or a ripple relay fault. We can help to determine the root cause and get the hot water running again in no time.

#5 - Power Points not Working

You may find that only one powerpoint isn’t working, half of them or even every power point in the house. You may have a cracked powerpoint or one with a wonky switch - the best thing to do is to give the qualified electricians at Brite Sparx a call to take a look.

Whether you have no hot water, no lights, no power or any general electrical issues on the North Shore - give Patrick a call - him and his team can handle it all. 0800 420 099
