Top Electricians related questions

Do I need a registered electrician for my electrical works?

It depends on the regulations set by your local government. For some electrical tasks, you may need to hire qualified electricians, especially if it involves intricate equipment or high voltage systems. It intends to ensure optimum safety and avoid any injuries or accidents. In case you do need a registered electrician, make sure to confirm the relevant license and certificate with your electrician.

How long does an electrician service usually take?

It depends on the scope and inclusions of the service you need. Typically, electric installation or repairs in a residential area take several hours, but still completed within the day. Industrial or commercial electrical works, on the other hand, may take a little longer since they require a wider variety of services. In case your electrician needs to revisit your property the next day, they can coordinate the details with your right away.

How often should I have my electrical components inspected?

Experts recommend having your electric wires, cables, and boxes inspected at least every three to five years. For landlords, you can also have your property checked after a tenancy contract. A more frequent inspection is encouraged for commercial and industrial premises. Since they have higher energy consumption, they are more susceptible to early degradations and failures. For optimal safety, you can also book for at least an annual inspection.

What is an EICR report?

An electrical inspection condition report (EICR) certifies the safety and competency of your electrical wirings. For some states, it is a legal requirement. Most of the time, commercial and industrial businesses are also pushed to get an EICR since they have more people consuming electricity. It is usually issued after a rigorous inspection, and once electricians confirm electrical safety.

What are the common electric repair services that I can get help with?

Electricians often provide virtually any electrical repair service. They can tweak power lines, do rewirings, and handle replacements. Some of the most common issues that they can resolve include a sparking fuse, frequent surges, and flickering lights. They also handle repairs for electrical equipment and generators, appliances, and other fixtures.

Apart from electrical services, can Airtasker also help me with general handyman DIY services?

Definitely! Our services are not limited to electrical-related problems. If you don't have the time or skills to complete some of your DIY household tasks, we can also connect you with a trustworthy handyman who can help! There's no task that is too big or too small. You can hire them to install carpets, curtains, and fix broken appliances or furniture. You can also commission them for wallpapering, bricklaying, and other building and construction tasks.

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.

We are having a new oven delivered tomorrow (25th May) and need someone to come to unwire the old one and replace it with the new. They are single, electric built-in ovens. The new one has a plug and the old one is wired into an electrical box at the back so I think we just need that unconnected and then can plug in the new oven. If possible, it would be great if you could also take the old oven with you and to the skip. Thanks

My electric bike just stopped working.

I have done voltage check on battery and charger and both have power; however my bike will not turn on. I would like to know how much this would be to get fixed and to get to the bottom of what is wrong with the bike?
