Emergency & Exit Lighting

Do I need Emergency & Exit Lighting? This is the most common question we get asked over the phone. And the answer is not always straight forward, to give you a good idea of whether or not you need to install Emergency & Exit Lighting here are some key points to consider in relation to the space in question.


Is the floor area over 300m2? If so the answer is simple – Emergency & Exit Lighting is always required.

Otherwise, you must consider factors like, class of building, public access, natural light and layout of walls/rooms.
Different classes of buildings have different requirements, for instance a class 9 building will always require Emergency & Exit Lighting, whereas a class 1 will never require Emergency & Exit Lighting.

If you have a property where members of the public are likely to be invited into, say a shop or doctors surgery then Emergency & Exit Lighting is always recommended.

According to the Building Code of Australia (BCA), if the exit from any room does not open onto a space with adequate natural light (in the event of an emergency) then Emergency & Exit Lighting is required. This can be interpreted many ways but the simplest way is, if you are in any room on the property and you went out the most obvious door, or door you just came through, in the event of no power at any time of day, could you see where you needed to go to get out? If your building has glass walls then this is likely but if doors of different rooms open up onto corridors or other areas then trying to get out in an emergency can be difficult.

There are so many different scenarios that I could be here for hours going through each, but give us a call on 0410 548 994to discuss your property today!

Qualified Electrical & Saftey Inspections

Regular electrical inspections will ensure your home or business is electrically safe protecting your family or workers. Our experienced electrical team offer comprehensive electrical inspections for any sized house or building throughout Perth.

Why should I get an inspection?

There are a number of reasons why you should have electrical inspections done regularly. The most important reason, of course, is safety. Generally speaking, without regular thorough electrical inspections, the first sign that there is something wrong is when there is a major problem, like a fire or an electrical accident.

By having regular electrical inspections you can reduce the chances of disasters occurring.

If you are an employer, under the Occupational Health and Workplace Safety Act you are required to provide a safe workplace for your employees, meaning that you are legally obliged to make sure that you have done everything you can to ensure their safety.

What will happen during an electrical inspection?

It all depends on what you are having tested. Our electricians will check appliances and switches to ensure that there are no faults. They will make sure that all powerpoints are safe, the safety switch is operating correctly, as well as reviewing any other electrical systems in your home. Our team will then report on any aspects which need repairs or attention.

Please Note: To perform a proper inspection, they will need to turn off the power to your house or workplace and will need access to all areas.

Why should I use ASTEC Electricians?

We have a team of qualified electricians who can be at your place in no time flat in a fully stocked van. They will provide you with a comprehensive inspection and talk you through what might need to be done in layman’s terms. We pride ourselves on our speedy, professional and friendly service.

Ceiling Fans

Ceiling Fan Installation

Energy Efficiency with Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans use minimal energy and operate at a fraction of the cost of air conditioners.

Ceiling fans will save you money in both winter and summer.  In summer the blades are set anti-clockwise and you will obtain a cool breeze making your home and/or deck more comfortable.  A good quality ceiling fan can make a room feel 4 to 5 degrees cooler.

Ceiling Fans Reduce Electricity Usage in Summer

Ceiling fans also mean you will use your air conditioner less, therefore you will reduce electricity usage.

When it is really hot and you really need to use your air conditioning, then your ceiling fans will still save your cash.  You should run your ceiling fans at the same time as your air conditioner.  When doing this you can now set your air conditioner to cool at a higher temperature.  Your air conditioner does not need to be set as low as it was previously as your ceiling fan now assists with the cooling.

The higher you set your air conditioner to cool to in summer the less electricity you will use.  Hence the greater level of saving on your electricity bill.

Ceiling fans used in conjunction with air conditioners can save you around 40% of your cooling costs.

Ceiling Fans Reduce Electricity Usage in Winter

In winter ceiling fans reduce electricity usage too.  The blades set clockwise so that the fan will push down warm air from the roof of your home, making it warm and comfortable.  In the same manner as in summer ceiling fans mean that you can set your air conditioner can now be set to heat at several degrees lower.  This really helps you save on electricity bills.

It is recommended that the fan be run at a low speed in winter to make sure that there is no wind chill effect.  It is generally agreed that when using a ceiling fan in conjunction with an air conditioner it can reduce your heating costs by around 10%

Ceiling fans themselves are very economical to run.  Typically ceiling fans use around the same amount of power as a 60 watt light bulb.  This equates to around 3 cents per hour.

Other Advantages of Ceiling Fans

In addition to being energy efficient and saving your money, ceiling fans too will help keep mosquitoes and other flying insects from your home or deck.

Ceiling fans in contrast to pedestal and floor fan consume less electricity.  They are also safer as they won’t be knocked over by children.

Finally there are some really attractive ceiling fans on the market now that provide the ‘wow’ factor to your home or deck.

Ceiling Fan Installation Cost

A ceiling fan needs to be installed by a qualified electrician such as Globe Electrical Solutions.  The cost for installation of ceiling fans varies due to a number of factors.  These include the number of fans to be installed, whether it is replacing an existing fan or light, the height of the ceiling, whether there is access to the ceiling and whether there is a timber beam available to install the ceiling fan onto.

Ceiling Fan Installation with ASTEC Electricians

Aaron is a Qualified Electrician who with his team has over the years installed literally hundreds of ceiling fans into Perth homes.  Ceiling fan installation can be quite a quick process, depending upon the type of fan and where it is to be installed.

At ASTEC Electricians our rates are very competitive, yet our workmanship is excellent.  We are also very knowledgeable about the different ceiling fans on the market and can advise you with brand and size would suit you and your budget best.

Please phone the our team 0410 548 994 and we can provide you with a quote to install your ceiling fans and schedule a time to undertake the work that best suits you.
