1. Electrical installation, maintenance & repairs:

Are you concerned your solar installation isn’t working at it’s full potential or it’s due for a service? We cater to a broad range of the electrical industry and understand that sometimes you just need things fixed as soon as possible.
2. Renovations & Extensions:
When planning your next alteration to your home, lighting is something that can really be the finishing touch you need.

We are here to provide modern electrical solutions & help design the best possible finish for your home project so you can have the balance of aesthetics and functionality for years to come.
3. Switchboard Upgrades:
The Australian/New Zealand Standard for Wiring Rules (AS/NZS 3000:
2007) states that all new lighting and power outlets must be protected by a Residual Current Device (RCD) commonly known as a ‘Safety Switch’. This offers protection to the home owner and also to the electrical circuit in the event of a fault. If you have an old fuse board, it’s time to consider upgrading to a new switchboard with circuit breaker overload protection and RCD protection for your home and family. Fuses will only blow when the fuse wire can no longer handle the load, this offers no protection against persons accidently coming in contact with exposed appliance leads or water splashing onto power points. RCD’s are designed to ‘trip’ before it’s possible to get electrocuted.
4. Energy Efficient Lighting:
According to the ABS electricity price index, Melbourne’s cost of electricity since 2007 has risen by over 200%! One thing is certain and that is that that cost of electricity will only get worse. However there is something you can do to combat this. The rise of LED products (Light Emitting Diode) has seen house hold lighting consumption reduced by up to 83% based on a standard 50 watt halogen down light. Some advantages of switching from halogen to LED lighting are lower running costs, longer life span & they produce little to no heat which is safer and also won’t be as attractive to rodents looking for a warm spot in winter.
5. Exit & Emergency Lighting:
By law all commercial and industrial buildings require lighting to be present in the case of an emergency/ loss of electricity. An annual test of these light fittings are required to make sure the batteries will last the minimum required time in the case of emergency and keep a log book as evidence of such testing.
6. Security Lighting:
Installing motion and or timer activated lighting for your home is a great way to prevent crime and make your home safer. Simple flood lights can deter unwanted people from peering into your car or windows and these fittings should be regularly checked by a licensed electrician.
7. Surge Protection:
Installing a surge diverter to your switchboard is the best way to protect your expensive electronic devices from damaging surges of electricity. Most leading electronic manufactures will state in their fine print that without adequate surge protection, their product isn’t covered by warranty. It’s also good to check with your home insurer to see if they will cover your dishwasher or washing machine in the event of a power surge without surge protection present … most don’t.
8. Split System Air Conditioners:
Reverse cycle air conditioners are an efficient way to manage the temperature of the selected room in your home. Capable of heating and cooling, with the right size selection it’s an alternative to big evaporative systems which require ducting and air flow to every room. With split systems there is no wasted flow to unwanted areas, just set the temperature and the desired air flow direction without having to open windows or doors like you do for evaporative cooling.
9. Test & Tagging:
The standard AS/NZS 3760 states that every workplace must have all electrical leads tested, then tagged by a qualified person to ensure safety in the workplace. Depending on the work environment, the intervals between testing can change.
10. RCD Testing:
Regular testing of Residual Current Devices (Safety Switch) ensures that in the event of an accident, the device will trip within the required time to ensure no one is at risk of electrocution. This is done by individually testing each one and putting a specific ‘test load’ through the circuit to make it switch off ‘trip’.
