Asbestos panel removal

Our team at BMS Electrical are licensed and trained to handle asbestos. Switchboard panels containing an asbestos material should only be worked on for minor upgrades. Where possible installation of new non asbestos panel is always recommended.

Smart Meter Installations and upgrades

Our team at BMS Electrical NSW are authorised to install meters through Plus ES. This enable us to install New Type 4 Smart meters for the majority of retailers saving the need to coordinate our works with your retailer or another meter provider. Smart Meters are required to be updated whenever Consumer Mains are upgraded, Solar Installed, New sites and for most switchboard upgrades.

Mains Connection Box

This is a small plastic box located at the point of attachment. This joins your consumer mains to the service fuse and service mains. Its an old an outdated way to install your consumer mains. The Mains box can be very dangerous if damaged, loose connections or if water enters inside. Where possible we will remove the old box and make new connections inside a new Sicame HSC435 House Service Connector and protect the old consumer cable with additional insulation.

Private Pole Installations

The standard electrical POWER POLES are HOT DIP GALVANISED 100NB PIPE. The Pole is 6.5metre’s long 114 OD x 4.5mm Wall Thickness and required to be at minimum depth of 1200-1500mm surrounded by 3-6 bags of standard concrete. We don’t use quick set concrete as it can destroy the pole within 7 years. These poles can only be used when the overhead service is within 20metres of the network pole. Larger size poles are required if the distance is over 20 meters. As per NSW Service rules Private poles must installed within the first 1000mm of the front boundary and the overhead service wires cannot encroach a neighbour’s property.

Private Pillar Installations

As per NSW Service rules Private pillars must installed within the first 1000mm of the front boundary. Private pillars are often used with private pole replacements when the consumer mains require any addition join due to being damaged or not enough length. Another reason is when the underground conduit from the network pillar to the switchboard is unable to meet the requirements or NSW service rules. Installation of private pillar will allow the underground mains to be classed as consumer mains instead of service mains allowing more flexibility with the installation.

Builders Temporary Service

A temporary builders service is generally required at the start of a new development or construction site. Our team at BMS Electrical can install the private pole, connect to the overhead mains, install temporary consumer mains, install the new meter with a powerpoint providing power ready for use.

Permanent Disconnections

Our team at BMS Electrical (NSW) can generally arrange a permanent disconnection of supply and metering within 3-10 days notice. This involves the removal of the overhead service wire and metering. In some cases the energy retailer will need to be required to remove they're own smart meter. When making a permeant disconnection request, try and have a copy of your electrical bill handy. A copy of this bill is generally enough information for our level 2 ASP team to submit the initial applications to the supply authority.

Point of attachment repairs and upgrades

Consumer Mains upgrades

Consumer mains are the electrical cables that connect the electricity meter of a residential or commercial building to the distribution network of the utility company. These mains carry the electricity from the distribution network to the main switchboard of the building, where it is distributed to different circuits and appliances. Consumer mains are typically made of copper. They are designed to handle the maximum load required by the building and are usually protected by circuit breakers or fuses to prevent overloading and electrical hazards.

What does a level 2 Electrican do?

A level two ASP (Authorised Service Provider) electrician is a licensed and qualified electrician who is authorised to perform electrical works on the electrical network and infrastructure owned by the electricity distribution network. They are responsible for installing, repairing, and maintaining electrical systems that connect to the electricity network, including overhead and underground power lines, substations, and service lines.

In addition to performing general electrical work, a level two ASP electrician can also perform specialised tasks such as:

  • Disconnecting and reconnecting electrical supply to properties
  • Installing and upgrading metering equipment
  • Installing and repairing consumer mains and service lines
  • Performing live electrical work on the high voltage network
  • Issuing compliance certificates for electrical work performed on the network

Level two ASP electricians are required to have completed additional training and hold a valid accreditation from the relevant state electrical safety authority. They also need to adhere to strict safety procedures and regulations when working on the electricity network.

What causes services fuses to fail?

In 95-98% of cases the service fuse burns out due to old age. A new assembly is required to be replaced. If the fuse cartridge only is replaced it will burn out again within a few days. In the other cases the fuse could blow due to fault within the consumer mains, mains box, main switch or fault with oven or hot water.

My RCD Saftey switch keeps tripping. How do I fix?

The cause for RCD fault is usually a faulty appliance that is plugged in. Other factors are faulty protection devices and faulty wiring. 1st step to repair is to turn off and unplug the appliances that aren’t working. Start with kitchen, laundry and any outdoor outlets. Try and reset RCD. If it resets you have disconnected the faulty appliance. Its now a process of elimination until you can determine the faulty appliance. Most common causes are fridges, freezers, electric jugs, dishwashers, power boards and recently issues with sewage pumps

How much does it cost to replace a service fuse assembly?

Most Level 2 electricians have a similar pricing structure. You should be able to receive an estimate price over the phone from the level 2 ASP. Normal Hours 7am-4pm with service fee + supply and install parts $380-$450
Late afternoon after 5pm or Saturday day 7am-3pm $450-535
Late at night after 9pm, late Saturday afternoon after 3pm or anytime Sunday/public holiday $580-720
