Homeowners given DIY electricity tips

Homeowners given DIY electricity tipsDIY enthusiasts hoping to carry out a new project in the new year have been given some advice by Australian electricity supplier Energex.

According to spokesperson for the organisation Mike Swanston, it is important that people are aware of the dangers of electrical systems when undertaking home improvement schemes.

Mr Swanston commented that electricity can be a potential problem as it is well-hidden yet extremely dangerous.

"So before cutting, drilling or hammering nails into walls, floors and ceilings, home handymen should thoroughly check for electrical wires behind them," he advised.

He added that DIYers who do not feel sure that they can locate wires should always call in the help of a professional to help before carrying out the project.

Energex provides energy to approximately 2.8 million people living in the south-east Queensland region of Australia and boasts a workforce of over 3500 employees.

The firm also has more than 80 years-worth of experience in the sector.
