Electrical Work: To DIY or Not?

Faulty electrical work is one of the causes of many fires in residential and commercial properties around the world today. Still, many property owners sometimes choose to handle electrical jobs on their own instead of getting the help of licensed electricians — a decision many people need to steer clear of making ASAP.

You can ask homeowners and business owners why they opt to just DIY certain electrical jobs instead of getting expert help, and any of these reasons will pop up:

  1. They won’t have to spend.
  2. They think the job is simple, so perhaps they can do it on their own.
  3. Looking for an electrician will take up too much time, and they need the job to be completed right away.
  4. They can simply Google the problem and easily find DIY articles and videos about it that they can follow.

While those reasons might seem logical and convincing at first, when you think long and hard about it, taking electrical matters into your own unskilled hands can and will bring about serious consequences. When you choose not to get professional electrical services, there’s a high chance that you’ll be facing crucial safety issues and major problems which might cost a lot to fix sooner or later.

Already thinking about looking for local electricians? Here are all the things you need to know before you finalise any agreement with an electrical business in Adelaide.

What are the services offered by electricians?

If you’re wondering about the common things electricians can help you with, you might be surprised to find that they can take care of a lot of work for you, that is if they have the licence to do it. Here are some common tasks they carry out:

  • Electrical Installations and Repairs
    This is the most common work a sparkie tackles. So whether you have a ceiling fan installation, power point installation, or a smoke detector installation job, electricians can help you with it. They can also handle wall TV mounting tasks.

  • Data and Telecommunications
    There are also electricians who are trained and authorised to do network, telephone, and data cabling work. You can count on them to set up telephones, install, repair, and replace telephone sockets, and take on other related work.

  • Refrigeration and Air Conditioning
    Planning to install a split system air conditioner? You can easily find an electrician who is qualified to take on your job. Licensed electricians who are also specialists in refrigeration can help you install, repair, and maintain your cool room.

Aside from those three, fully licensed electricians can also tackle other jobs including the following:

  • CCTV installation
  • Fault finding
  • Testing and tagging
  • Solar panel installation
  • Alarm system installation
  • Switchboard upgrades
  • Rewiring
  • Emergency work

What to look for when hiring electricians

Because handling electrical work is such an important job, you shouldn’t give it to just anyone. You wouldn’t want to risk your family’s safety by hiring an incompetent tradesman for the task, would you? To make sure that you’ll only deal with a reliable and capable business, do the following steps.

Check if the business is fully qualified.

The licence is one of the first things you should look for when checking a business’s qualifications. The local licensing authority in Adelaide which is SA government’s Consumer and Business Services (CBS) only issues licences to trained, skilled, and competent electricians. So when a business shows you a licence, you can rest assured that they can guarantee not only quality work but also safe results.

You should also make sure of the validity of their licence. The Government of South Australia CBS has a licensing public register online. There you can easily input your prospective business’s licence number and look at the details of their licence — licence status, licence categories and subcategories, and more.

Also, don’t forget to check if the business you’re planning to hire has been in the trade for years. Experience can somehow ensure you that they’ve already honed their skills, acquired new knowledge, and faced different problems that they can now solve without difficulty.

Make sure that they are fully insured.

Insurance is important to make sure that the sparkie you hire and your property are protected in case an accident happens while they’ve carrying out your job. So remember to always check if your prospective business is fully insured.

Know more about their services.

It’s best to ensure that the electrician that you’ll employ can cover all of your electrical needs. Not only is it convenient, it’s also more cost-efficient as you won’t be hiring two separate businesses to take care of everything. Always talk to the electrician you’re thinking of hiring and ask for a complete list of their services.

See what their customers say about them.

Reading customer reviews is a good, especially if you want to know more about the electrician you’re thinking of employing. By looking at feedback from customers, you’ll be able to determine if a business is reliable, trustworthy, efficient, professional, and prompt and whether they charge fair prices for their services.

Cost of hiring electricians

The current price of hiring a local electrician in Adelaide is at an average of $50 per hour. The cost you’ll receive from businesses, however, will still vary. When an electrician quotes, they base the fee on their customer’s job. For instance, installing ducted air conditioning systems is definitely more expensive than installing ceiling fans. has electricians in Adelaide who are available to give you a quote and keen to take whatever electrical job you have. Here are some things customers say about them:

"Nino, was excellent to deal with. Provided a quote within a short period of time and was onsite undertaking the work within a couple of days. Would highly recommend." - Sam from Wynn Vale, SA

"Daryl arrived on time. Job was probably not as easy as it should have been but he did what he needed to do to get it done. Great job and I would highly reccomend Daryl to anyone." - Steve from O'halloran Hill, SA
