LG Electronics Australia (LG) has today announced a 25-year product warranty on all NeON 2 solar panels manufactured from 1st of October 2017. The new warranty period is one of the longest solar panel product warranties available in Australia, and represents a 10-year increase on LG’s existing warranty term. “LG NeON 2 and NeON R panels now offer a 15 year longer warranty period, than the industry standard 10 years, we see this as a Game Changer,” said Markus Lambert, General Manager Solar & Energy.

Is my switch board safe? Do I need safety switches and how do i test them?

Monday, April 23, 2018
Any alteration to power or lighting circuits shall have a separate individual safety switch for that circuit. All new homes must have safety switches protecting all power points and lighting circuits. Any new home or renovation from 2017, all circuits to be protected by individual safety switch. If you don’t have a safety switch and have fuses or circuit breakers then you should invest in safety switches to protect you home and any person from electric shock and fire. If you have one safety switch, sometimes these cause nuisance tripping eg. all power goes out when a fault accrues or small leakage in appliances over too many circuits trip. If your safety switch is protecting more than three circuits (breakers or fuses) you should consider getting them checked by Donna's Electrical. We recommend getting that switch tested ‘at the least’ and recommend upgrading by installing individual safety switches to prevent...Read More

How do I know if my smoke alarm needs replacing and where do I install them?

Friday, April 06, 2018
Two types of smoke alarms are commonly found in Australian homes; Photoelectric and Ionisation. It is important to note that currently both types can be legally purchased and used, as both meet the required Australian Standard AS3786. However, for a number of years now, photoelectric smoke alarms have been the only type recommended by Australian Fire Authorities and Fire Brigades, as well as the International Association of Fire Fighters. In fact, a global campaign is now calling for a total ban of ionisation alarms. For that last 2 years we have been using Photoelectric Smoke Alarms for New homes, replacement or adding to existing homes. Highly recommend replacing smoke alarms older the 8 years as this is the life span of smoke Alarm. Batteries replaced once a year and tested. Hard wired smoke alarms should have a green light and can be easily swapped over to a Photoelectric if older...Read More
