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.

Repair electrical control board


Armadale VIC, Australia

28th May 2023

I have a Dimplex heater which has 3 settings: 1) LED Flame, 2) Low Heat and 3) High Heat. All 3 features work as expected, however when I turn the switch for the LED flames ON, the switch will then not turn them OFF. To turn the LED flames off you have to unplug the unit (pretty annoying after awhile). Sadly this heater is outside it’s warranty by one year and so Dimplex will not repair it. I’ve had it looked at and the issue has been identified with the Control Board. Looks like they aren’t making these anymore so the Control Board cannot be replaced. I’m looking for an electrician / someone with this know how to repair the current Control Board so the ‘OFF’ switch will work as intended. I’m flexible on timing but sooner than later would be preferred as I really miss my little fireplace 🥺 I live in Armadale. Thanks in advance! Feel free to ask any questions in the comments if that helps assess the job to be done :) - Due date: Before Saturday, June 10, 2023

Electrician provide quote for various works


South Melbourne VIC, Australia

10th May 2023

Need a qualified/licensed electrician with a high completion rate and 5 star rating to come to my apartment and quote the following: —- Rejumper NBN connection from kitchen to bedroom (see photos). Both rooms have the network cable hole thing but currently it only works in the kitchen cupboard and is heating up the food stored next to it. Previous owner said “it never worked in the bedroom” however it’s unclear if this means an electrician has already tried or if she just plugged it in and it didn’t work because the connection is in the kitchen. —- measure/provide advice/quote about installing dimmer lights, light switches and ceiling fans in both bedrooms (x2). Installation etc to happen separately and charged accordingly/additionally at another time obviously. Please note this is JUST for the quote unless your quote includes doing the NBN thing as well (not sure if this can be done on the spot, how long it takes or how much it costs).
