Find a Local Adelaide Electrician
"How do I choose a local Adelaide electrician?", is a common question. Don't go for the one with the shiniest ute or the flashiest business card. Start off with by contacting our friendly and experienced team. By doing so, you can see exactly who you'll be getting, and why we fit the criteria for the work you need. Don't be shy, ask us lots of questions. How long have we been an electrician for? Do we have the relevant licenses?
How much does an electrician cost?
There are a lot of variables in how much an electrician will charge. But from experience, the hourly rate is usually somewhere between $35 and $120 an hour. The lower end is an extreme example, and you're unlikely to find one this cheap. However, depending on the size of the business, and how much work they have on, prices can really vary. Do your research and always check if they are licensed and insured for the work you need done.
We always aim to be on the lower end of the price spectrum for our Adelaide electrical work. We are more focused on providing customer service and finishing the job off properly the first time. Our reputation is one of high quality workmanship, and we will always use the best parts and tradespeople for the job.
10 Things an Electrician Does
Lighting and Electrical Switches
Eventually your light fittings are going to deteriorate, your power points and switches are going to need an upgrade and your home may need rewiring. This is the realm of the electrician. With anything electrical it is strongly advised you use a qualified and licensed professional.
Eco Lighting, energy saving lighting, LED Lighting
These aren't just electrical buzz words. Eco lighting, LED lighting and energy saving solutions can really impact on your household's bottom line. South Australia has some of the most expensive electricity in the world, and with a few simple adjustments you can make a huge difference to your household's electrical consumption.
It's easy to get caught up in the cosmetics and look of your new idea. But logistically you need power in the right places, and your electrical contractor is a hug part of that. You should consult them in the design phase as to which sections will need rewiring to your new extension or renovation. This is something you shouldn't leave too late.
Wiring a new Home
In the same way as a renovation, wiring a new home requires planning. I suggest actually sitting down with the electrical contractor (Or their company) with your new house plans, to discuss the electrical layout. Their expertise can perhaps save some costly oversights, and ensure your new home has electricity in all the right places, with an efficient layout.
It's imperative you consult a licensed professional. Switchboards are the control centre to route electricity through your home or office. They protect from power surges, and possible electrocution. If you are in a home more than 15 years old, I'd suggest getting a licensed professional to look at yours immediately.
Test and Tag
Test and tag allows the electrician to check your electrical appliances ensuring they are in correct and efficient working order.
Every solar power company needs a licensed electrician to install their equipment. So a lot of electricians Adelaide are working full time on solar. Especially with recent incentives. Whilst every solar installer should be an electrician, not every electrician is a solar installer. As with any trade, read reviews, read what they do, and check credentials.
Eventually your home is going to need electrical rewiring. This is one area where I would suggest you get a few quotes and opinions. Rewiring can be a large sometimes messy job, and you want to make sure you get enough honest tradesmen saying the same thing to you.
Again, something extremely essential. Electrical safety switches monitor the flow of electricity and can trip when the electrical current escapes.
