We can also conduct regular maintenance and service checks to ensure that your smoke alarms are operating at peak condition all year round so that you can rest easy knowing you’re protected.

*Please note that South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service recommend smoke alarms to be cleaned and tested every 6 months.

Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are one of the easiest and cost-effective ways help cool your home in summer and circulate the heat in winter. Like most purchases it is important to select the correct fan for your specific area and needs. The team at Deadshort can provide fans or install your own, and offer advice and recommendations to help you choose the perfect solution.

Selecting a Ceiling Fan

Location

Before installing a fan, it is crucial to consider where you will be locating it. If the area is close to a light source above, this can sometimes cause a flashing light strobe effect. In an instant like this, we recommend fans with light attached to them, or re-locating the fan or light. As a rule of thumb, we recommend mounting ceiling fans 300mm away from the ceiling and 2.1m from the floor. Extension poles are available for some models.

Cabling Accessibility

Ceiling fans will require additional cabling from the fan controller on the wall to the new fan. Cabling accessibility can be an issue for internal or solid walls. One solution to this problem is to consider a ceiling fan with a remote control. While remote control fans can reduce on installation costs, they are generally more expensive to purchase initially.

Type and Design of Fan

Metal blade fans generally make more noise than their wooden counterparts, which is why recommend wooden fans for bedroom areas. However, the noise levels of a fan will depend on the number of blades, their design and angle they are installed on. The cost of fans will vary on all the above-mentioned items, generally the quieter fans will cost a little more. As a rough size guide, rooms 20m2 can use 122cm fans, and 20m2 to 36m2 should use 132cm fans.

Property Management

Protect your investment from costly electrical damage with the friendly and reliable team at Deadshort. We can conduct routine checks before homes go to the market so that you can confidently sell or rent out your home. To prove our reliability and consideration towards those most vulnerable, the Deadshort team have obtained all relevant police clearance checks and arrive in discernible uniform.

Test & Tagging

Test and tagging involves conducting regular testing on your electrical equipment and appliances to ensure that they are safe to use. Using specialised testing equipment to test for faults, our technicians will produce barcoded tags for your appliances with all the relevant information needed such as whether it’s safe to use, when the test was conducted, and when you are due for your next check. In addition, we will also provide you with a full-service and compliance report give you peace of mind. No matter how big or small the job is, our technicians will work swiftly and efficiently to ensure minimal disruption to your workplace or home.

Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging involves using a specialised camera to take pictures of your switchboards which help us identify future electrical hazards prior to failure, breakdown or even a fire. Some insurance companies are now requesting thermal reporting of switchboards as part of their insurance conditions. After every thermal imaging service, we will also provide you with a full thermographic report for each tested item. This report will provide colour photos for every switchboard tested, and will identify any areas that need to be attended saving you both time and money.

Switchboard Installations

The electrical switchboard of any installation is one of the most important electrical components of your house or building. It’s responsible for the distribution of power via the individual circuit breakers or fuses, but more importantly, it protects you from electrical faults or electrocution.

While many believe switchboard upgrades to be a lengthy and daunting task, they can generally be completed in a day causing minimal disruption to your home or building. We can also relocate your board at the same if you please. Deadshort can liaise with SA Power Networks to arrange power removal or relocation if required.
