Electrical rewiring: Your property may need to be rewired should electrical circuits or power points need to be replaced. This is much more common in older buildings and properties which were poorly wired during building and construction. Because of limited access, brick buildings can be costlier to rewire.
Electrical repairs: Now and then, the electrical outlets in your house will need to be repaired. Pretty much any repairs to any aspect of your electrical system should be undertaken by a licensed electrician. Electricians can assist with all electrical repairs such as replacing power points and outlets as well as repairing and replacing old wiring.
#TIP: Keep an eye out for possible electrical hazards to ensure your health and safety.
Safety switches: These protect you and your friends and family from power surges, faulty appliances and damaged wiring. The safety switch operates by monitoring the flow of electricity through a circuit and trip when the electrical current escapes from the system.
Lighting: If you need lights installed or repaired in your home or commercial buildings, a licensed electrician is able to do it for you. Whether you have LED, track, fluorescent, neon, halogen or flood lights or would prefer downlights or garden lights, an electrician can help with installation and repair.
Night sensors and time clocks are also really popular. Consult a licensed electrician to install security lighting and sensors on your property.
Security Lighting: Essential for your commercial or industrial properties. Consult our licensed electrician to install the lights as well as automatic sensors.
Wiring a new home: Ensure you conduct the suitable planning for wiring up and the installation of all the electrical elements and outlets.
#TIP an electrician can customise all the wiring and power points in your home to your particular needs.
New electrical installations: A licensed electrician really should be consulted if you are considering building a new house or apartment or to customise and change the electrical system in an existing home.
Switchboards: These route electricity around a building and are designed to protect you and your family from being electrocuted. Switchboards can also help to confine faulty wiring and appliances. Your switchboards will need replacing and upgrading on a regular basis, especially if you occupy an older home or building.
Solar Power: Installing a solar power system can help improve the energy efficiency of your home and reduce your energy costs. Electricians who specialise in the installation of solar power units can advise on the most suitable option.
Backup Generators: It can be a good idea to install a backup generator to provide a backup source of electricity in your home. You should buy a backup generator depending on how often you will need it. Your electrician will be able to advise on an appropriate generator to suit your needs.
#TIP it’s wise to choose a backup generator that produces more power than the sum of power required by your home appliances; this will avoid fuses blowing.
Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS): A UPS is a back-up system used to protect electrical equipment from surges and power failures. These UPS systems provides backup power to office equipment such as fax machines and computers.
Other tasks electricians can perform include:
Electrical Data Cabling: Data cables should be planned when you install systems for computers, telephones and security. You should hire a specialist data cabler to give advice on the best data cabling and installation for your needs.
#hiptip Anyone who works on data, optical fibre, co-axial, underground or aerial cabling has to have completed appropriate certification and be registered by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).
Fibre Optic Cables: Installing fast fibre optic cables gives you many advantages, including wide bandwidth, clearer telephone services, better TV sound and images online movie streaming, (such as Netflix) and even being non-flammable.
Home Entertainment: This system combines the functions of several electrical components in order to enable the home viewer an experience of watching a theatre style movie. Speak with your licensed electrician about setting up a home entertainment system.
Alarm Systems: Your local licensed electrician can play a huge role in the general security of your home. Everything from smoke alarms to state of the art security systems, electricians are the most qualified to give you the best advice.
24/7 Emergency Service: Most electrical contractors will offer a 24/7 emergency service 365 days per year to deal with any electrical emergencies you might be experiencing, from minor emergencies like power outages through to larger electrical emergencies like fires, fallen power lines and dangerous electrical currents.
Electricians also install electrical equipment e.g. water heaters and air conditioners.
Selecting an Electrician Near Me
It’s important your electrical contractor is fully licensed and insured. Request to see the license and make sure it’s current. By law, all electrical work must be done by a licensed professional and having a valid license means that you’ll be protected legally and financially if there are any problems with the job carried out. The professional must also have the correct insurances such as Worker’s Compensation insurance and General Liability Insurance. Ask to see current certificates of insurance.
Will the professional provide a certificate of electrical safety or a similar certificate? This states that the work has been done by a licensed professional, has been tested and is safe. It acts as a guarantee to you.
Also, ask for several quotes before selecting a professional and remember that the cheapest quote is not necessarily the best.
