Most homes receive their electricity from an overhead electrical service. If you are a homeowner, you are responsible for taking care of the point of attachment bracket and electrical service riser.
If the components are damaged or need to be serviced, you need to hire a Level 2 Electrician. The electricians at HP Electrical Contractors PTY LTD can take care of all your electrical needs.
What is a Level 2 Electrician?
A Level 2 Electrician has been certified by the government. They possess the requirements needed to physically connect your electric service to the network. A grade electricians cannot perform the same work as Level 2 Electricians.
They have not had the training or possess the required certifications. When your point of attachment bracket or electrical service riser needs to be repaired, you need a Level 2 Electrician.
What is a Point of Attachment Bracket?
Your overhead electrical service has electricity strung to your home from the network. A point of attachment bracket is installed on your home to support the weight of the service cable.
Point of attachment brackets come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. However, the one that is installed must be approved by the network. Some types of electrical service brackets include electrical fascia brackets, electrical riser brackets, J hooks, I bolts, and rafter brackets.
What is an Electrical Service Riser?
Sometimes, when the overhead cables are run to your home, they can hang too low. If they do not meet overhead electrical service clearance guidelines; you must have an electrical service riser installed.
Low-hanging wires are a safety hazard and can lead to an electrocution. An electrical service riser raises the wires high enough to clear the guidelines. Risers are often installed on the roof.
The electrical cables run from the network or a personal power pole to the riser and are fed down to the meter.
Point of Attachment and Electrical Riser Damage
Electrical service components that are located outdoors can be easily damaged by accidents, inclement weather, fallen tree limbs, and wildlife can cause damage. Over time, the sun’s damaging UV rays can also cause problems.
If the point of attachment or any other component has a defect, it is important it is resolved right away. Damaged components can be a safety hazard. If there is an issue, do not try to fix it yourself.
Instead, call a Level 2 Electrician that knows how to perform the work safely.
