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 control systems, and test the electrical flow for your safety. 

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

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 safety 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 and control systems and more complex machinery, it's better to connect with an industrial electrician with a white card . 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 safety switches, or notice a burning smell, spark, or flickering of lights, get in touch with a local electrician immediately for emergency repairs. With Airtasker, finding available emergency electricians in your area is fast and easy! You won't even have to worry about not having any power tools on hand–most sparkies are already equipped with their own professional power tools and test instruments, which they can bring with them for any service that you may need.
