Whether it’s a residential or commercial building, smoke alarms and fire protection systems are vital safety tools. In Australia, there’s legislation around the placement of smoke alarms at home and it’s important to comply.
We can help landlords and homeowners to comply with the regulations with careful smoke alarm installations. We’re highly experienced in this area and can assess your needs and determine the right installation options for you.
You don’t want to take any chances with electrical safety and safety switches are a valuable way to protect people. Safety switches turn off the power supply instantly if there’s a hazardous electrical fault and this protects against electrocution and shocks.

What type of electrical work do you carry out?
In addition to electrical system installations and maintenance on the Sunshine Coast, we also offer inspections and testing.
This includes everything from the addition of more plug sockets and lights to complete rewiring and new construction work. We’re happy to take on larger contracts and have the capacity for this.
We also offer regular maintenance services for both homes and businesses. Our testing and evaluation services include fixed wire testing of the electrics inside your premises, as well as the inspection and testing of electrical appliances.
Do you provide free estimates or quotes for your services?
For the most part, yes. This may be supplied verbally when you phone us, or it can be provided in writing, but we may need to visit your premises depending on the sort of work that is required.
On some occasions, based on your location and the nature of the task at hand, we may charge a small fee for providing a quote. If this is the case, you will be advised by our team when you contact us to arrange your appointment.
What’s the difference between an electrical contractor and a certified electrician
A certified electrician is someone who has completed the requisite training and obtained the relevant certificates to perform tasks such as testing and repairing electrical systems, installing and connecting sockets, and so on.
An electrical contractor, on the other hand, is usually a business that employs these electricians and is also fully insured and licensed.
How quickly are you able to arrive at a job site?
For emergencies, a member of our team will discuss your needs with you and, depending on the severity of the problem, will organise an expert electrician to arrive as soon as possible.
We make every effort to provide exact time frames, and while we are almost always on time, there can sometimes be a delay. However, if this is the case, we will notify you as soon as possible.
Should I carry out electrical repairs on my own?
When electrical problems arise in the home, many homeowners are tempted to try and resolve them on their own.
But the majority of homeowners – regardless of how adept they are at doing their own home maintenance and repairs – are not qualified to complete electrical work.
Remember, to become a licenced electrician, qualified electricians must undergo extensive education and training. It is extremely dangerous to atempt to complete electrical work yourself. This is not recommended.
When will my house need rewiring?
When it comes to rewiring a house, there are no hard and fast rules to follow. Many variables, such as the wiring materials used, may have an impact on the condition of your electrical infrastructure.
However, one of the biggest tell-tale signs that you need your house rewiring is you have an old fashioned-style fuse box rather than a modern consumer unit. As a rule of thumb, rewiring should take place every 25-30 years.
Not sure if you need rewiring? Contact our expert electricians on the Sunshine Coast today to organise an inspection.
Owner-occupied properties should have an inspection performed at least once every ten years, and rental properties should have a periodic inspection performed every five years.
This test will confirm whether or not the electrical wiring in a property is safe, and it will also inform you of any repairs that are required to keep your home safe.
