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 electricians are already equipped with their own professional tool kits, which they can bring with them for any service that you may need.

Hi guys we need a Registered and Licensed electrician (RECs) to install a 15A plug (circled blue) inside our garage just right behind our switchboard (inside the house). This is for charging our electric car. As you can see from the photo, we need it under the fronius inverter which is mounted on a rendered brick wall so i assume that wall needs to be drilled?

Electrical work


Balwyn VIC 3103, Australia

We have a fuse that keeps tripping. It's a 25 amp one that has "stove" written under it, but it is not used for our stove. From my testing, there are just 2 normal power points and a light in the attic that uses this circut. I'm thinking that in the worst case, one could just deenergise and bypass this circut entirely and rewire the existing power points to another circut (there are others working near). Not sure though - just an idea. I also need a new power point and lights installed in the attic (all easily accessible and clean) which we can discuss when you are here as a seperate job. I understand that you can't provide a fixed quote based on this limited information, but looking for some options re pricing. We have solar panels FYI and I have included a photo of our switchboard. Date and time are flexible. Happy to start as early as you like.

Great communication, explained and worked through the problem with me. Very skilled and efffecient. Highly recommended!
