Sometimes choosing the style that will best suit your premises can be a little daunting which is why we have it covered, right through from the supply to the installation stage.
*Why Should I Choose LED Lighting?*
💡Highly energy efficient to help keep your energy bills down
💡Long lasting – capable of lasting more than 50,000 hours
💡Eco friendly: Zero emission of UV rays or infrared radiation and they use only a small fraction of the energy of halogen or incandescent lights
💡Expend a third less energy than CFL lights
💡LEDs function at a much cooler temperature than other lights, making them a safer option

🔌 BLACK OUT KIT 💡
There are many causes for a surprise power outage, including fallen power lines, damaged power poles 🔥, high winds 🌬 and lightening⚡️. In any case, prepare yourself with an easy to access Black Out Kit.
You will need
🔋 Spare batteries

Make sure you have everything in your kit in one spot, altogether. It's also important to put it somewhere that will be easy to locate when it's dark.
Just think how much easier it would be to have everything you need in one place, rather than fumbling around trying to find all your bits and pieces!

Both machines performer similar activities, but one of these can cost significantly more to run! Is it the dishwasher or the washing machine?

It's time for another power face off!
(PS. React on this post with the ANGRY FACE if you hate ironing?!)
Ok, now which one do you think uses more power? Ironing some shirts take around the same amount of time to dry your lucious locks - so which one is costing you more?
We'll be commenting soon with the answer!
🔥 WINTER WARMERS 🔥
This week's tip is about the little things you can do to help keep your home warm and SAVE MONEY on your power bill!
❄️Hot Water Bottle - go old school and take one to bed or snuggle on the couch with a hot water bottle!
❄️Layer Up - dress warm and pop some socks, slippers or ugg boots on around the house
❄️Find the draught - Make sure your windows and doors are completely closed! Invest in door runners which stop the warm air escaping the room. And utilise doors to section your home and keep the warmth in the area you're using
❄️Rug up - if you've got wooden or tiled floors, get some rugs happening! They're excellent for providing immediate insulation!
❄️Wood Fire - these cost around the same as it does to install a reverse cycle aircon, but once it's in, it's much cheaper to run! You can purchase a tonne of wood for around $200 which should see you through your winter.
❄️Insulate - make sure you've got your home insulated. You can save around $450 a year from having adequate insulation!
❄️Seal it up - go through your house and seal all the cracks and windows. Did you know, if you added all your cracks up, it would be roughly equivalent to a 1m x 1m window being left open?!
There's been another Product Recall of RCD's/Safety Switches and Cables sold in the Bunnings 'SmartSpace' Kit Homes, with realistic risks of electric shock or fires in the homes they've been installed in!
Let your sparky look after finding quality and safe products from reputable wholesalers.

🔌 Services Highlight || Testing & Tagging 🔌
'Test and Tag' is the process of checking the safety of portable electrical appliance to guarantee the safety of the people in the workplace who may come into contact with the appliance, as well as minimising the risk of an electrical hazard.
WHO NEEDS IT?
Industries such as construction, demolition and mining are required to have their appliances tested and tagged every three months and thanks to our top of the range testing and tagging Perth team, we can offer the service as a one off or as part of an ongoing maintenance contract. Due to the harsh nature of the industry, which means equipment may be damaged at a faster rate than usual, such regular scheduled testing is essential. The test and tag colours will change for different periods throughout the year, which effectively makes certain times of the year coincide with a specific test tag colour.
🔧3 months: building, construction and demolition
🔧6 months: factories, warehouses and production
🔧12 months: an environment where the equipment/supply cord is prone to flexing or open to abuse
🔧5 yearly: an environment where the equipment/supply cord is not prone to flexing or open to abuse
If you're still unsure if you need to have your appliances checked, give EV Electrical Services a call and we can advise you FOR FREE!
⚡️ KETTLE vs TUMBLE DRYER ⚡️
Comment below with the appliance you think uses the most power! Will it be making a cup of tea or drying some clothes?
EV Electrical Services will comment soon with the answer!
🔌 LED Vs HALOGEN 🔌
LED’s or Light Emitting Diodes are fast becoming the favored globe for all light fittings due to their higher level of efficiency compared to Halogens. These days, you’ll find Halogen globes are being phased out, easily replaced with LEDs.
💡LEDs run cool, meaning they’re safe to touch and use less energy
💡 They reach their ultimate brightness the moment they’re turned on
💡LEDs are excellent choices for retail stores and galleries, as well as the home because they don’t emit UV, therefore they won’t damage fabrics or artwork.
💡Compact and durable, LEDs are suitable for most indoor and outdoor installations
💡They can last up to 50,000 hours— which is about 13 times longer than halogen bulbs.
💡Power consumption is the lowest compared to all other lighting technologies—80 percent less than incandescent bulbs and 75 percent less than halogen bulbs.
💡The shatterproof bulbs are shock resistant and have no brittle filaments.
💡LEDs require higher initial investment but produce greater energy returns over time.
💡LEDs contain no mercury, harmful gasses, or toxins.
💡They are available in many different whites and colors.
💡Because of their low power consumption, LEDs are great alternative lighting solutions for solar-powered systems.
If saving power, replacing your globes less often and a bigger choice of lighting options interests you, contact EV Electrical Services today for an on-site consultation about how downlights can be installed in your home or business.
Ever wondered why we call our electrical business 'EV Electrical Services'?
Well, firstly we will tell you how we started.
A few years ago, with little to no electrician jobs around Perth, Steve had no choice but to restart his FIFO work. It was always difficult, but we were now a family of three, with our daughter only one year old.
4 week long stints were the only thing on offer, so we took it.
It felt worse than it ever had at the airport, and after tears from me (Jessie), he walked over to the line to board the plane. I stood a few meters away with Jaxxi. I suddenly had an overwhelming feeling this wasn't the right choice and I texted him to say 'my gut says don't go.' He jumped out the line the moment he read it. He called and cancelled his work. And then we went home and decided to start our own business.
After getting a small loan to pay for the Electrical Contractors course, Steve got his certificate & insurances and EV Electrical Services had officially began.
So why the EV? We named it after our daughter, because her middle name is EVELYN.
And she is the reason we decided not to separate our family for a month at a time and instead bust our butts to make this work.
This photo is from almost 3 years ago, when we got our certification!
