5 Occasions When You Really Should Hire An Electrical Contractor

It's fair to say that the law is relatively black and white when it comes to Do It Yourself electrical work. In essence, if the job entails much beyond changing a light bulb, then it needs to be carried out by a licensed electrician

Just to give you a further idea, here are 5 occasions when you really do need to be hiring an electrical contractor.

Home wiring for a new construction

If you're fortunate enough to be building your own home then an experienced electrical contractor can work with your builder to create a plan that works for you and one that provides sufficient and adequate electricity throughout your new home. This could include telephone wiring, data cabling, and security system cabling too.

Revamping old wiring

If you're looking to modernise your home and need to put in extra plug points or upgrade your existing electrical supply then this is the perfect time to contact an experienced electrical trades person who can come and do the work. You may even want to increase the electrical capacity of your home to make it fit with modern day living and the right electrical contractor will be able to help with all of this.

Storm damage

Falling trees, broken fence panels, or major gusts of wind can cause damage to the exterior of your home resulting in a loss of power. If the problem isn't that the trip switch has done its job and... well... tripped, then it's definitely a job for a licensed electrical engineer. The problem mightn't be as simple as you think so call in the experts and leave it to them.

Upgrading your lighting

Whether you're installing the latest recessed, track, or outdoor lighting then an experienced electrical engineer should be able to carry out the work quickly, safely, and cost-effectively. They can also provide suggestions and solutions which you may not have even thought about.

Problematic signs

Finally, if you notice problematic signs that might mean that you have faulty wiring such as lighting that constantly dims, plugs that get hot, charring around plug points or frayed wiring, then it's well worth calling an electrical engineer to investigate the problem. They will know just where to look and therefore can get to the root cause of the problem quickly without it costing you the earth.

Very pleased with the installation of fans by Static Electrics. The electrician arrived right on time, installed the fans, cleaned up everything when completed & took away the old fans & all the packings. I will be having Static Electrics do my electrical work in future.


I found Jarvis to be very prompt/respectful and informative. As having never dealt with solar before he answered all my questions patiently and in layman's terms. You should be very happy to have Jarvis on your team and he is credit to your business with his professionalism.Thank you very much Jarvis!

David did an admirable job in installing a new solar inverter to our property. He gave a very clear and concise exp;lanation of how the system worked and what to look for in the event of a system malfunction. It is so satisfying to witness such efficiency!

Nathan from Static Electrics came to diagnose an issue with a split system. Nathan was on time, polite, diagnosed the problem and fixed it. As a result of Nathan's manner and presentation i'll be taking all my future electrical business to Static. Keep up the good work.


Nathan was on time and did a fantastic job servicing my air conditioner. He was very knowledgable and was able to fix a couple of small issues I had. He left everything clean and tidy too. The job was well done and the price was great. Thanks!

Once again a great job performed by Static. These guys are very professional, friendly and tidy. We have used them on a number of occasions and never been disappointed or had any issues. Thanks to Nathan for his work today.


Great company to deal with - Static are one of the top rated contractors our company uses. I have also used them personally for Airconditioning work at my property. Nathan was very professionally, tidy and informative. Would not hestitate to call them again.

Luke Ehrenberg

Terrific service. Installers came on time, were friendly and efficient, and even cleaned up after themselves !! Absolutely no hesitation in recommending this company, and will definitely use them again

Anne Hattersley

Jeremy arrived on time, in fact he was a little early, he was clean and well presented in his work uniform and very courteous. He asked a few questions about what our air con was doing, to work out what he needed to do, then got stuck into it. His knowledge and attention to detail was impressive and by the time he was finished, our air con unit looked like it was brand new again. Before the cleaning out of the indoor unit, the fan was hardly blowing any air at all, but once the cleaning was finished and with the unit reassembled, Jeremy turned it on to test everything and the fan was now blowing like a force 10 gale, absolutely brilliant, exactly what we had hoped for, we are now all set for the next summer season. We will absolutely totally get Jeremy back at the end of the next summer season to clean the unit again. Top job we can highly recommend this company.
