Electrical Inspections

Most electrical permits require three inspections: cover, service, and final. Cover inspection. Schedule this inspection when all new circuits are wired (boxes installed, wires run, grounding conductor connected or made up, nail plates installed in areas as needed). Don’t cover your work with insulation, receptacles, or wall switches until the inspector has approved it. Cover inspections also include underground installations. Don’t cover trenches, ditches, or slabs until the inspector has approved them. Service and feeder inspection. Schedule this inspection when the service electrical mast, meter base, service panels, grounding electrode conductors, and branch circuits (if possible) have been installed. Final inspections. Schedule this inspection when the electrical work has been completed. Make sure panel boxes are covered, circuits are labeled in the right spaces on the box, and all cover plates are installed. You must have all of equipment and appliances installed, grounded, and energized for final inspection. Why do I need an Electrical Certificate of Compliance? An Electrical Certificate of Compliance is required by law when transferring ownership of a property and to ensure that the electrical installation is safe as per Code of Practice SANS 10142. This Certificate of Compliance (COC) is issued by one of our accredited inspectors once the prescribed inspection and tests on the installation wiring have been done and deemed safe. Tips Before An Electrical Inspection: On the day of the inspection ensure that all light fittings/globes are working. Make sure all the circuits on all distribution boards are labelled correctly. Make sure all isolators are accessible from fixed equipment. Remove all redundant leads. Check that the light fittings have their covers in place (e.g. ball lights). Allow all distribution doards to be accessed during the day of inspection.

Electrical Wiring For Your House
Electrical Wiring For Your House is an electrical installation of cabling and associated devices such as switches, distribution boards, sockets and light fittings in a structure.Wiring is subject to safety standards for design and installation. Allowable wire and cable types and sizes are specified according to the circuit operating voltage and electric current capability, with further restrictions on the environmental conditions, such as ambient temperature range, moisture levels, and exposure to sunlight and chemicals.Associated circuit protection, control and distribution devices within a building’s wiring system are subject to voltage, current and functional specification. Wiring safety codes vary by locality, country or region. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is attempting to harmonise wiring standards amongst member countries, but significant variations in design and installation requirements still exist.Electrical Wire Repair & CareElectrical circuits can incur any number of problems, and, because of the potential fire hazard faulty wiring can present, it is important to diagnose and repair a problem immediately. In Electrical Wiring Repairs, we take you through a list of the most common problems and refer you to other articles that will help you narrow down the possibilities. One of the most common problems occurs with electrical cords and plugs, which can deteriorate after years of use. We show you how to replace them.

There are still many electricians using the incorrect documentation which will render the Certificate of Compliance invalid.

Standby Generator Installations

What Is A Standby Generator? A standby generator is a back-up electrical system that operates automatically. Within seconds of a utility outage an automatic transfer switch senses the power loss, commands the generator to start and then transfers the electrical load to the generator. The standby generator begins supplying power to the circuits. After utility power returns, the automatic transfer switch transfers the electrical load back to the utility and signals the standby generator to shut off. It then returns to standby mode where it awaits the next outage. To ensure a proper response to an outage, a standby generator runs weekly self-tests. *Choose Between Natural Gas & Liquid Propane Generators* Standby generator systems operate on either natural gas or liquid propane vapor. Both natural gas and propane generators provide a seamless transition from utility to backup power. If your home already utilizes one fuel or the other, it makes sense to use what’s already available.
