Thanks Rob for fixing our smoke alarm ! Communication was excellent, and the service extremely quick and fuss free. Would highly recommend.

Replace a smoke alarm


Truely exceptional. Most courteous tradesman we've had in quite a while. Quick and safe work. Excellent explanation regarding what caused the problem. Minor hiccup with one message, the kind common for anyone for whom English is not their mother tongue - the subtleties of any language can catch you out, no matter how fluent you are - but to his credit, Dewar did not shy away but effectively resolved it without delay. Wholeheartedly recommend.

Top Electricians related questions

It depends on the regulations set by your local government. For some electrical tasks, you may need to hire qualified electricians, especially if it involves intricate equipment or high voltage systems. It intends to ensure optimum safety and avoid any injuries or accidents. In case you do need a registered electrician, make sure to confirm the relevant license and certificate with your electrician.

It depends on the scope and inclusions of the service you need. Typically, electric installation or repairs in a residential area take several hours, but still completed within the day. Industrial or commercial electrical works, on the other hand, may take a little longer since they require a wider variety of services. In case your sparky needs to revisit your property the next day, they can coordinate the details with your right away.

Experts recommend having your electric wires, cables, and boxes inspected at least every three to five years. For landlords, you can also have your property checked after a tenancy contract. A more frequent inspection is encouraged for commercial and industrial premises. Since they have higher energy consumption, they are more susceptible to early degradations and failures. For optimal safety, you can also book for at least an annual inspection.

An electrical inspection condition report (EICR) certifies the safety and competency of your electrical wirings. For some states, it is a legal requirement. Most of the time, commercial and industrial businesses are also pushed to get an EICR since they have more people consuming electricity. It is usually issued after a rigorous inspection, and once electricians confirm electrical safety.

Electricians often provide virtually any electrical repair service. They can tweak power lines, do rewirings, and handle replacements. Some of the most common issues that they can resolve include a sparking fuse, frequent surges, and flickering lights. They also handle repairs for electrical equipment and generators, appliances, and other fixtures.

Definitely! Our services are not limited to electrical-related problems. If you don't have the time or skills to complete some of your DIY household tasks, we can also connect you with a trustworthy handyman who can help! There's no task that is too big or too small. You can hire them to install carpets, curtains, and fix broken appliances or furniture. You can also commission them for wallpapering, bricklaying, and other building and construction tasks.

What do electrician services include?

Our local electrical contractors can handle all electrical projects, be it for residential, commercial, and industrial properties. If you are building from scratch, they can help construct an efficient electrical framework for you. They can also establish new electrical wirings, and test the electrical flow for your safety. 

As for existing properties, electricians can routinely maintain, repair and upgrade your power systems whenever needed. They can also handle electrical equipment and machinery for factories and manufacturing plants. Here are the better overview of our electrical services:

Domestic electrician

Electrical safety is paramount when it comes to your home, and that's when residential electricians play a vital role. They can help make sure that all electrical components, including wires and cables, are in good condition to avoid any incidents that could put you and your family at risk.

Domestic electricians can establish power points and switches to support your household appliances. They can also assist with installing various electrical appliances such as electric heaters and showers, in case you're looking to upgrade or planning a renovation.

Commercial electrician

Not to be confused with domestic electricians, commercial electricians are mostly involved in large-scale projects for buildings and various businesses like restaurants, hotels, and corporate offices. Depending on your establishment's requirements, they can fix lighting, heating, and cooling systems or install fire alarms and other security equipment if needed.

Industrial electrician

For tasks that involve higher voltage systems and more complex machinery, it's better to connect with a licensed industrial electrician. Their services include electrical construction and maintenance for industries like factories and plants. They don't just install lights and electrical heaters. Most of the time, they also deal with different types of manufacturing equipment, including hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Industrial electricians can also troubleshoot problems and repair them as they see fit. They can even create tailored maintenance programs for your electrical motors and generators.

Emergency electrician

The moment you sense something odd with your sockets and switches, or notice a burning smell, spark, or flickering of lights, get in touch with a local electrician immediately. With Airtasker, finding available emergency electricians in your area is fast and easy! You won't even have to worry about not having any tools on hand–most sparkies are already equipped with their own professional tool kits, which they can bring with them for any service that you may need.

3rd Jun 2023

My Electrolux 7kg dryer, model EDV705HQWA, has malfunctioned and I'm hopeful it can be repaired. It was making a knocking sound when spinning in one direction but not the other. It did this for about 15 minutes and I was hopeful it would self correct but it did not an no longer spins. The heating still seems fine. When we removed it from the wall it sounded like there was a loose piece in the bottom, do perhaps there's a rod or something that has snapped off? If there is a handy dryer repair person out there who can point me in the right direction I'd greatly appreciate it! - Due date: Flexible
