“You need an electrician in Caringbah, Sydney for ceiling fan repair, smoke alarm electrician, ASAP”. My wife received the same email a few days ago. There had been a knock on her door while she was at work and a man had let himself in. She asked me for help, so I went over to her house to find out what happened.
“We had to go to the Sydney local ceiling fan repair, for ceiling fan repair”. My friend called me that night to report the problem. She said that the air conditioner in her home had been turned off and when she got home the smoke alarm electrician in Caringbah advised her that they could not guarantee her electrical safety that night. My advice to her was to call an electrician in Sydney. She was able to give the details of the problem and the electrician in Sydney offered to come and take a look. The electrician in Sydney told my friend that she was not going to pay any bills for the ceiling fan repair that night.
“Are you sure that we are not going to have an electrical fire?” she asked. “The air conditioning company sent a worker over this morning”, the electrician in Caringbah reassured her. “He will be here shortly to take a look at your ceiling fan units”. My friend was really glad that she wasn’t paying any of her electricity bills that night.
The next day the ceiling fan repair was completed. My friend went to visit the Local Caringbah Electrical again that afternoon. The electrician recommended my friend to go online to locate a reputable electrical contractor in Sydney. My friend contacted the contractor that evening and confirmed that the ceiling fan wiring was fixed, but the nut that connects the ceiling fan blades to the fan was damaged.
My friend was devastated! The nut was completely out of order! She was calling all day long with her friends to no avail. The best idea that came to her mind was to find the electrician in Caringbah who had performed the ceiling fan repair the first time and contact him to see if the nut was actually replaced. The electrician in Caringbah came to the rescue. He informed her that she could replace the blade with a new one, the nut would be reinstalled, and she would be able to pass on a copy of the invoice to her other friends and family members.
This story illustrates just how important referrals can be when trying to find an electrical repairs expert that you can trust. A referral from your trusted friend or relative can save you a lot of money in the long run. I also know of several friends and family members who have had problems with different contractors. Some of these experiences include having the electrician install the wrong parts of the ceiling fan, which cost extra in the end.
The electrician advised my friend to buy a ceiling fan compressor separately to replace the damaged nuts. This saved my friend a lot of money and added another step to the installation. The electrician made sure that the two items were together the entire time, and he even accompanied her to the hardware store to assist her.
One word of advice: make sure that you have the correct number of nuts. A smoke alarm electrician may not know how to ask for the correct number of nuts but he certainly could if you asked him. This is especially true if your ceiling fan has become stuck on the ceiling. Your electrician will also need to know how to properly tighten down the bolts. This could save you countless dollars down the road because he didn’t have to spend time changing the ceiling fan wiring or rechecking the installation.
