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.

Handman for electronic cables, collect pastel & repair oven clock


Prahran VIC 3181, Australia

25th Jun 2022

I have a rental apartment with a number of issues. The guest is very flexible with his time, so you can come around any time, but the sooner the better. The tasks include: 1. Collect package from JB-HIFI (nearest one to you) and bring it to the guest 2. Find a powerport connection that works with the weird 3 prong connection of this lamp so it connects into the normal wall socket (see picture) 3. The optical port of the soundbar is broken and isn't holding the optical cable in place. Create a solution to fix it in position better (see pic) 4. Replace light globe (and buy it) 5. Fix hinge on small cupboard (see pic) 6. Fix oven clock, it seems to have fallen away from glass panel (see pic) I realise these issues are quite a mixed breed. I'm happy to pay by the hour if that's easier and you can advise how long it takes. I believe for the right person all of these issues are pretty straight forward, but it will likely take a little running around. The apartment is in the Prahran Central building. Guest is a really nice guy, very happy for you to come in and work to resolve the issues. Highly likely there will be more work to come also. Would love a repeat handyman I can call on for the future. Josh - Due date: Flexible

Erik was fantastic. Really good communicator, turned up on time, was personable and efficient! Fixed the problem on the spot, also (on the spot) fixed something else to ensure the problem wouldnt reoccur at a later point! And was a really nice guy - despite my puppy trying to play with him while working (including trotting off with a tool! sorry Erik haha!) I highly recommend him and will use again if I have any issues with appliances in my home.
