Kings Electric
Kings Electric installed a replacement light / fan combination in my toilet, the sort of small job that it can be difficult to get someone to do. The job ended up being a little more complex than I had thought due to problems with a lack of an earth supply to my old fitting. They were excellent in explaining what was required to be compliant with regulations and very accommodating in immediately undertaking what was needed. I highly recommend them. Their pricing was more than reasonable and given his quality approach to safety and workmanship. They will be my first point of call for any future electrical work.

F&M Electric
Replaced 8 x light fittings with new pendant style fittings. Installed 2 x bathroom exhaust fans. Ran earth wire to all points, rewired switches and fitted new down lights to bathroom. Located and re-routed telephone line to 2 x points. F&M Electric arrived on-time to quote the work and on-time to start the following week. He communicated on all aspects of the project and even asked for our vac so he could clean up after.One of my best experiences with a tradesman! Fantastic work and thanks for going the extra mile to ensure our creative vision for redecorating our home is actually happening.

Joseph Vos Electricians
Joseph Vos Electricians came at a time convenient for us and did a great job. He was polite, helpful and diligent. He went above and beyond and responded to all of our ad hoc requests and all for the same price that he quoted to start (which was based on the assumption the job would be an easy one, which it was not!!) He spent an hour and a half dealing with our wonky floors and kitchen units and left us with a very good looking final result. We recommend Joseph Vos Electricians very highly and will definitely be using him in the future

Collin Electrical
Came at less than 1 hours notice after another plumber on Checkatrade let me down on the day of the job. They even beat his quote! Collin Electrical got straight on and did a really good job. The complexity of the existing pipe work made the job much harder than expected but they still kept to quote and made a modest charge for small additional jobs I requested to keep installation in good order. I'd strongly recommend them for a very prompt, efficient, professional and reasonably priced service.

Crown Heights Electric
“Found Crown Heights Electric when we had just bought our first house and wanted to get a gas safety certificate as well as fix the boiler which had just stopped working! He arrived promptly and worked efficiently and gave good advice on other things to be done. Have used him since on other jobs to install new plumbing for the washing machine and dishwasher and to install a new towel rail. Trustworthy and reliable, I keep his number handy!”

Calvin Ford Electric
Calvin Ford Electric was able to fit me in at very short notice to install and replace five pendant lights in preparation for a party the following weekend. They remained good matured throughout even though the nature of the lights meant that the job was time consuming. They also took the time to explain other work we should consider having done at a future point in time and was happy to provide a detailed quotation for that work.

Wilson Electricians
This is the second time we used Wilson Electricians. and again they delivered very professional service. Second time we called them for Electrical Safety Inspection and fix 4 spotlights. The property didn't pass the inspection in the first round, but electrician fixed the faults with no hassle or worries to us in a tight timeline and provided all the documents we needed the same day. We will definitely use his services again.

Jay St Licensed Electricians
"Thank you Jay St Licensed Electricians for your excellent work on my house. They installed 8 leds, a spot light plate, a pendant light, a sensor light and a ceiling fan for me over 2 days. They also helped changed all my switches downstairs. They were prompt and really easy to deal with. They have excellent work ethics and even took the time to help me sand and paint to ensure a flawless finish. I will definitely recommend.

Baker Electric
Baker Electric have serviced our house for so many years. When we wanted work done, they were on time and courteous. They also came up with innovative ideas to make our house lighting a little different from the rest. When we installed our new kitchen, they were there to do the rewiring. We cannot fault their quality and professionalism. We have never had a call back, and, value for money they are without peer.

He only charge what he supposed to charge. Have been using Wilson Electricians. as our man for the air-conditioning technician and electrician for more than 18 months. Still very reliable. Strongly recommend them for any job
Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
