Potential killer could be inside your home
HAVE you ever felt an electrical shock or tingle when touching a tap or other piece of metal in your home?
Many of us have experienced it but most don’t know that shocks and tingles such as these could be part of an underlying and dangerous electrical issue.
And no matter how minor the electrical shock or tingle, according to Chris Rose from Energex’s safety team, they can quickly turn into a life-threatening shock and should be reported.
“Often these kinds of shocks and tingles are just the thin end of the wedge in terms of electrical issues that can become a potential silent killer within a property,” Mr Rose said.
If you experience even the slightest tingle, keep away from the tap or metal and phone Energex on
13 19 62.”
Mr Rose said Energex would investigate and diagnose the cause of the shock or tingles free of charge.
