Our well-trained residential electricians have the skills to perform all of your household electrical, telephone, data, internet, and television requirements.

Why use a Licensed Electrical Contractor?

Licensed Electrical Contractors in NSW:

  • Carry insurances to protect against accidental property damage, injury and death
  • Must offer Warranty
  • Often have a reputation to maintain
  • Are regulated by the Department of Fair Trading, providing you with protection against:
    • Faulty or non-compliant workmanship
    • Contractual and/or payment disputes

Use of a Licensed Electrical Contractor:

  • Will not void Manufacturer’s Warranties (while manufacturer’s instructions are followed)

“In the event of a fire or accident which is attributed to electrical work completed by someone other than a Licensed Electrical Contractor, your home and contents and/or property insurance may be void.”

If your “electrician” does not hold an Electrical Contractors Licence:

  • They are not insured against the risk of damage, injury or death
  • They cannot issue a valid Certificate of Compliance for Electrical Work
  • They do not submit their work for inspection
  • In the event of a fire or accident, their work may void your property insurance
  • Manufacturer’s warranties are void for all electrical items they install
  • If they damage your property or their work is faulty, they may disappear (fly by night)
  • They may not have a reputation to maintain which may be reflected in their workmanship
  • They may not be aware of current Australian Standards, Local Rules or Safe Practices

How long will it take to fix my electrical issues?

Typically, electrical issues can be resolved within an hour or so. But it will obviously depend on the type of problem. A whole house electrical upgrade is certainly not going to be done in an hour, day, sometimes not even a week! The electrician will first have to diagnose the issue and then apply a fix. If the issue is not simple, they may have to return at a different date for an installation or full service repair.

Questions to ask when selecting your next electrician

  1. Can I please see your Electrical Contractors Licence?
  2. Can I please see your Public Liability Insurance certificate of currency?
  3. Are you a member of Master Electricians Australia?
  4. Do you carry a copy of the Australian Wiring Rules for easy reference?
  5. Do you offer a lifetime warranty on your workmanship?
  6. Do you install materials so as to maintain manufacturer’s warranties?
  7. Can you give me a fixed price quotation for my job?
  8. Will you complete the work “in-house” or do you use sub-contractors?
  9. Will you contact me if you are running late?
  10. Do you use reputable brands such as Clipsal, Hagar, HPM or NHP?
  11. How well do you clean up after yourself?
  12. Will you provide me with a CCEW on completion (Certificate of Compliance for Electrical Work)?

What your electrician must be able to show you in order to confirm his expertise?

  1. Company Electrical Contractors Licence
  2. Individual Electrical Supervisors Certificate
  3. Company Public Liability Insurance certificate of currency
  4. A copy of AS/NZS 3000:2018 Electrical Installations (known as the Australian New Zealand Wiring Rules)
  5. Many genuine 4 and 5-Star customer reviews
  6. Photographs of previous projects

The typical hourly rate for electricians will be in the region of $70 – $120 per hour.  Expect the hourly rate to increase for densely populated urban areas in contrast to other regions. There will also be a callout fee that can range from $60 – $100. This callout fee will be increased if it is an after-hours emergency callout. These costs are not inclusive of the cost of materials. Clarify the billing process before you hire an electrician. Some charge fixed rates for certain jobs, others charge hourly rates. Fixed rates offer you increased peace of mind.

Most simple electrical jobs will cost around $150 – $250 in total. They will take less than an hour to complete. For larger tasks, then it’s best to take account of some of the typical average costs:

  • Switchboard Installation/upgrade – $500 to $1,800.
  • Solar panel installation – $5,000 for a 5kW system.
  • Home rewiring – $5,000 to $7,500 for a 3 bedroom house.
  • Test and Tag – $150 with a $4 tag for additional outlets.

When estimating an electrical job, you will need to ask the contractor for their callout fee and their hourly rate, first and foremost. Then, you will ask them for quotes on a given job, including materials. This is the best way to arrive at an accurate figure while removing all ambiguity. Don’t leave anything to chance.

Where possible, prefer electricians that give you an honest fixed rate instead of a callout fee and hourly rate. It makes the entire quotation process a lot easier for both parties.

The most common electrical problems in residential areas include:

  1. Electrical surges
  2. Lags in power
  3. Light switches not working
  4. Circuit breaker tripping repeatedly
  5. Circuit overload
  6. Electric shocks
  7. Dim lights

If you are experiencing any of the above, just give us a call. And if your electricity bill is too high, we can investigate whether anything is amiss. Your home might need a few tweaks for maximum efficiency.

I would highly recommend ATD electrical. An outstanding local business with very prompt service at an affordable price. Chris was very professional and friendly. Most importantly, safety and workmanship is the highest priority and customer service and satisfaction second to none. Thank you for doing a wonderful job installing my new fan. I couldn’t be happier.

I was very happy with the work done by Chris. He installed 2 wall light fittings in my bedroom + replaced a broken switch in kitchen and removed an unwanted ceiling fan. I was happy how he paid attention to detail
ATD replaced the cable on my car charger (a warranty job). It was a fairly straight-forward task, but what stood out was the effort that Guy in the office went to to schedule the work as soon as the replacement was available. I let him know when the cable arrived, and there was an electrician at my house within 24 hours to switch it out. Great service.

I had Annie and Reece install a fan for me, what a pleasure it was to have them both in my house. Professional, respectful, courteous and what a job. Cleaned up returned my furniture and ran me through how to operate. It was just over 24 hrs from my enquiry to being shown how to use it. Amazing! Do yourself a Favour and call them for your electrical needs.

I highly recommend ATD Electrical for both emergency and general work. I’ve engaged them 4 times recently. Twice for emergency work (2021 and 2023) and twice for general work (2019 and 2023). From the moment the phone is answered (quite quickly and 24/7) to the tidying up by the electricians just before they leave, it’s as a professional organisation as you’ll find anywhere.Guy, who took my calls with the emergencies, will organise what’s needed while you wait or ring back with attendance details within a few minutes. Chris and Annie, who fixed my most recent emergency and, separately, attended to some long needed general work, go about their business competently, efficiently and pleasantly. On my experience, this organisation can’t be faulted.

Highly recommend ATD Electrical for your next electrical repair, maintenance or installation.When booking my job I experienced very efficient and professional communication from Guy who kept me updated on the timeframe. Chris and Annie, the tradies who worked on my installation, arrived on time and came with all materials needed for the day; they worked very efficiently with professionalism and displayed courtesy at all times; very pleased with my sub-floor ventilation system. Five stars.

I am very happy with ATD service, as I went from having a dead electrical oven to a working one (wife is happy, as well) and the locking function, after the power outage in east Wollongong on the 3rd of May, became stuck in that mode, as well. ATD were able to disable the locking mode on oven, and also observed that the power plug had the wrong tooth (potential fire hazard, if it shorted out) and replace it, there and then.

We hired an emergency generator used on 1 cargo ship from this company. They were extremely efficient and professional. Especially, Guy was the most helpful sales rep we have seen, responding to an extremely urgent and tedious inquiry in a friendly, professional manner. He also does his best to save you money by making extra effort to complete the project in an efficient, effective way. I highly recommend ATD for any electrical work required.

Bathroom extraction fan installed.I had to defer the job a few times because of the nature of my work. They worked with me each time to set a new date. On the install day the 3 technicians were polite, respectful and cleaned up after themselves. No shortcuts on the job either. Very professional. Thanks to Chris, Annie & Alex on the install and Guy for helping me rearrange installation multiple times and always responding to the copious amount of messages I sent.100pct recommend

I have used ATD several times now and always found them to be very professional and thorough. Guy in the office always lets you know clearly when he can have someone attend your residence. This is usually sooner than later. Our electrician Chris worked tirelessly to solve our problems and I thoroughly appreciate his persistence to get a solution. He didn’t try to take shortcuts or find an easy way out. I totally recommend ATD electrical.

The team at ATD Electrical were fantastic. On realising that we were getting the house painted they removed all fittings for easy access. They then explained ‘special electrical features’ they found and why they should be rectified. They have always communicated well (different options and pricing), turned up on time, stayed late to complete the job and even cleaned up mess that had been left by the painter. Highly recommend ATD Electrical.

We have used ATD Electrical a few years ago to rewire the inside of our house. They were very professional in all aspects of the job and that is why we contacted them again th inspect and repair the main wiring from the supply outside to the house and meter box. Once again the guy,s were on time as arranged. Guy and Chris were friendly and professional in carrying out the repairs and from what I could see and understand it was done properly. Thanks again ATD and their staff for a job well done. Would definitely use this company in the future if needed. Thankyou. Denis Cox.
