What do electrical rewiring services include?

Electricians can replace cables, fittings, and distribution boards that are old or dangerous. Additionally, electrical rewiring may involve adding circuits to power a pool area or run a new appliance. An electrician or sparky can come in to check your existing connection and assess the work they need to do.  

Afterwards, the specialist can perform the rewire and conduct safety tests on all the wiring. A Tasker may conduct safety tests on circuits, fuse boards, and sockets. These tests ensure electricals are running properly and are compliant with building regulations. Below is a list of different ways an electrician can help you. 

Electrical rewiring for electrical issues 

An electrician may need to rewire your home if you always experience overheating sockets, flickering lights, or a blown fuse. In any case, an electrician can do full or partial rewiring on your property. For example, your technician can rewire your lights to address flickering or dimming fixtures. 

A major renovation, on the other hand, may need a fuse board upgrade. Taskers are here to help with minor to major electrical issues you may have. For other home repair tasks, we also help you find plumbers who can address leaking pipes, low water pressure, or other plumbing problems in your home. 

Electrical rewiring for home updates

If you live in an old home that has not been rewired in 25-30 years, it’s a good idea to have an electrician check your electrical system. Chances are, you’ll need to schedule a partial or full rewiring on your house. Old rewiring from the 1980s or 90s is not designed to handle the huge volume of modern household appliances.  

An electrician can ensure your wiring complies with present-day safety standards. When the work is done, you can have another Tasker take away the construction debris and vacuum up dust from the work areas. 

Electrical rewiring for home upgrades

Electricians can do rewiring for small upgrades or major renovations. Small upgrades include installing additional sockets in a room, so you don’t have to use too many extensions around the house. This upgrade can prevent sockets from overheating and reduce fire risks. 

If you’re converting a garage into a recreational space, you may also need electrical wiring. This upgrade enables your electrical system to carry extra loads. Other electrical services include lighting upgrades, light switch replacement, and fan installation. These offerings may vary from Tasker to Tasker. With electrical wiring updates, you may achieve a more attractive living space with a higher property value.

Rewire faulty lamp


Camperdown NSW, Australia

10th Jul 2022

I have a lamp that must be faulty; the dimmer switch indicates it has power but globes don’t illuminate. It seems to be temperamental and occasionally works or turns itself on unexpectedly after a while. It’s a bit of an interesting lamp and I’m not really sure if/how the wiring can be disconnected… I couldn’t figure it out how to feed a new bulb socket/power lead through it. Happy for it to be with or without a dimmer switch as I’ll be using a smart bulb anyway. Australian power plug. - Due date: Flexible

Michael was a pleasure to do business with: friendly and professional, job well done, punctual, and most importantly he was licenced. Five stars.
