How much do electricians charge?
In Australia, expect to be charged between $65 to $100 an hour by a professional electrician. However, this rate varies across different major cities and towns. The rates are mostly dependent on different factors. An example includes your exact location as this significantly determines the demand and supply of electricians. It also determines how far they will have to travel to reach your place.
At Southern Electrical Services, we like to find out the nature of the job and gather as much information as possible about it. We investigate thoroughly and then generate an estimate quote for you. We do this to avoid any surprises once the job is finished. We offer you the most competitive prices for every job we do.
How do I find a reputable electrician in Australia?
You can find a reputable electrician by asking a general contractor. They usually have a list of great ones that are dependable. You can also ask about them at your local home builders association. Another option is to go ask at your local electrical supply shop or house. Always make sure you explain the type of work you need done. You can also search on the internet but ensure that they are licensed and insured. You should also look at the history of the outcomes they give by finding clients who have worked with them before. Ask them about their style of operation and which governing body they are registered under.
What is the cost of rewiring a house?
Rewiring a house is not as big a job as wiring from scratch. However, it is very important as it keeps your house safe from any possible dangers that could result from faulty wires. In Australia, fire brigades put out about 300 fires that occur in residential areas yearly. Most result from electrical issues. This is why every home in Australia is required to comply with the set Australian Standards to prevent this. Rewiring will set you back anywhere between $1,500 to $12,000 depending on the size of your entire home.
What are the benefits of hiring an electrician?
There are several benefits that come with hiring an electrician. They include:
- It guarantees you safety as electrical stuff such as wiring can be really dangerous when not properly handled
- It ensures the job is done right since electricians have the expertise needed in wiring and rewiring as well as fixing any other issues from electrical appliances around your property
- It is cost-effective. While hiring a professional electrician might seem expensive, it is actually cost effective. This is because an electrical job that is mishandled by someone who is not a professional will mean you have to spend extra in fixing the problem again
- An electrician has the experience and training needed to figure out all the complexities of the job. They also have the work warranty required as well as insurance just in case of any unforeseen accidents. This also helps in case something in your property gets damaged.
