What do electrician services include?

Our local electrical contractors can handle all electrical projects, be it for residential, commercial, or industrial properties. If you are building from scratch, they can help construct an efficient electrical framework for you. They can also establish new electrical wiring and control panels, 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 is 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 follow safety regulations and make sure that all electrical components and control panels, including electrical wiring 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. All while ensuring they follow all building regulations.

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 engineering projects or 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 control panels, 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.

Lighting/electrical components on microcamper need fixing


St Leonard's, City of Edinburgh

17th Nov 2022

Storage compartment There is lighting above the doors to the separate storage compartment on the left and right side of the vehicle and neither lights work. The right side has a an ordinary light switch inside the storage compartment with a lead that runs to the left side of the cab – the cable has been cut to the left side. Cable under water storage tank under sink There is a white cable under the water storage tank that is under the sink, I just found it tucked away there. Not sure what it is for, could be removed? Also, there are two buttons on the upper right side of the cupboard above the sink, the bottom button is for the rear above door external lights (works), the upper button doesn’t seem to do anything, and I am not sure what it is for. Perhaps this button was originally wired to the rear square lights that are now wired to light up when it is put in reverse? If so, it would be preferable to rewire the square lights to the overhead button. If not, perhaps remove? Bar light over sink (underneath cupboard) Flickers, loose cable? Left side orange night lights When the night time drive lights are on there are three corresponding orange lights that light up on each side of the vehicle. The first two orange lights on the left side of the vehicle near the fuel entrance doesn’t light up. High beam lights Lights work fine but when the button to switch on the lights is pressed (right side of the steering wheel) the led light in the button flickers but doesn’t stay on while the high beams are on. - Due date: Flexible
