Residential Electrical In Sydney
With today’s connected infrastructure, homes rely more than ever on proper, reliable electrical service and access. We tend to take this utility for granted. That is, until the moment when the lights go out.
From plugging in a toaster oven to installing a ducted air con system and everything in between, homeowners in Sydney all have a need for wiring done right.
In contrast to demand, residential electrical services require skills and certification that few homeowners have themselves. The result is that when you need a project taken care of, you should turn to the experts. Electrics are not the time or place to tinker with DIY approaches.
There’s no job too big or small for our team. We’re happy to help you with adding recessed lighting in your living spaces all the way up to rewiring portions of your home for a much-needed update. You can trust that your project will be done on time and on budget with safety first and foremost, and all of the work is backed with a five-year warranty.
If you live in a house or have a business in Sydney that was built a long time ago and you are concerned that the electrical wiring is not in its best condition, then you may want to do new electrical installations to your property, including air conditioning installation.
What does this type of service include?
In most cases, the power and utility companies are responsible for the main electrical feed that comes into your house. Once that electricity is wired into your home’s breaker, everything that comes off of the circuits and is wired throughout your home falls within the domain of this service.
Another way to look at this is: is it in your home and using electricity? If so, you’ll want a residential electrician to help you out with it. This can range from adding new fixtures to repairing or replacing wiring. Other popular residential services include:
- Fixtures and fan installation
- Lighting switches and dimmers
- LED and recessed lights
- Exhaust fans and ventilation
- Air conditioning
- Appliance connections
- Electric hot water
- New or rewiring
- Security systems and smoke detectors
- Breaker panel and switchboard upgrades
- Solar panel installation
- Outdoor and garden lights
Is it worth it to call a professional for residential electrical work?
Not only is it absolutely worth it, it’s almost always necessary. More basic tasks like installing a ceiling fan might seem simple enough, but these still pose a threat and should be left to a professional.
In fact, you’re required by regulation to contact a licensed professional to do the work. It’s not that Australia wants you to spend money unnecessarily. Rather, they want to keep everyone and their homes safe for the long term. Electrical services done wrong can create electrocution and fire hazards, to name a few. This is never worth the risk. Hiring a licensed, insured electrician will be worth the price and safety without a doubt.
Who can perform this type of work in Sydney?
We already mentioned that in no way, shape, or form should a homeowner be attempting this kind of work themselves. That said, there are a few things to look for in an electrician as you shop around.
Make sure that you are working with a Registered Electrical Contractor (REC) or Licensed Electrician. Don’t be shy about asking to see a Certificate of Compliance from anyone you are considering to have work on your home. All of the work they do must be in compliance with the Australian Standard AS/NZS 3000:2007 which is rigorous for a reason. These guidelines are designed to keep everyone and everything safe.

Frequently Asked Questions About Residential Electrical in Sydney
Do residential electricians provide emergency services?
This is handled differently by different providers, but many will come out if you are experiencing faulty wiring that could result in a fire. Since they may be performing work on short notice or during off hours, you will want to be clear whether there are any additional fees. But don’t let those fees get in the way of doing what is safest for your home!
Does residential electrician perform home automation?
As our homes become smarter and more reliant on technology, many electricians have become familiar with integrating smart lights, thermostats and other devices into home wiring. These have a number of benefits including running a more energy efficient home (and saving you on your electric bills). Choosing a licensed electrician to help you upgrade your home will ensure that you’re upgraded in compliance with safety regulations.
Is doing electrical work in my home by myself illegal?
Not only is it dangerous, it is illegal throughout New South Wales. This is to protect homeowners and their property from risk of electrocution or fire. Even some seemingly simple tasks like installing a ceiling fan or replacing a light switch are against the law to do yourself. Aside from the risk of injury, you could also be fined up to $40,000 if caught.
Do I need to have electrical safety switches installed?
While they are not required by law in all cases, there’s no harm in installing something that could potentially save lives. These switches can protect you and your family in case of a power surge or a faulty circuit. Instead of letting the current pass through the appliance or outlet to electrocute someone, the switch will interrupt the circuit and cut the supply.
Are there parts of a job that an electrician won’t do?
This will depend on the project, but consider that most electricians are trained for just that – electrical work. Most professionals will be careful as they cut into sheetrock to install new outlet or add wiring. But if you require new sheetrock to replace an area or repair damage, you’ll need to look for another tradie. Another example is if other materials such as pipes, supports, or insulation are in the way of wiring or electrical installation work, they may call in other specialists to handle these components.
