What is a residential electrician?

A residential electrician is simply an electrician who caters to the residential market. This can be contrasted to commercial Electrician and industrial electricians who have a different skill set, broadly speaking. Your home has to be wired initially and the placing of wires and outlets is critical in the construction process. Prime Time Electricians can also handle commercial work as well as residential services.

For any new home build, it needs to be wired correctly, and the placement of wires and power outlets is critical during the construction process. Our experienced residential electricians will be able to safely install an effective wiring solution for your new home.

A residential mains power supply upgrade may be required when there is an increased electrical load in the household, and this is a common upgrade required for many older homes.

Residential Electrian's FAQ's

If you work with any kind of building contractor, they should be able to give you a well-informed recommendation.

When seeking out a residential electrician in Perth on your own, it is really important to do your research. Take into account; online reviews, and the scope of services. You must also verify an electrician’s license number and check their accreditations. This will ensure that the residential electrician you choose will get the job done professionally, safely, and in line with current West Australian electrical legislation.

This is not an exhaustive list, but these are the most common residential electrical issues:

  1. Circuit Breaker Tripping – A circuit breaker will trip if there is too much power flowing through your electrical system. However, if it trips often, it might be time for a system upgrade. 
  2. High Electricity Bill –This is most often caused by simply using too much power, though the efficiency of your system will also play a role. 
  3. Dips/Surges In Power – This can be caused by too many appliances. But it is also often caused by substandard devices connected to the power grid or the wires. 
  4. Circuit Overload – A circuit can be overloaded when power points are overloaded with too many devices which exceed the recommended load rating. This can be a reason for your tripped circuit breaker.

Whole house rewiring is not an ideal situation as it is a huge job, which can be disruptive. When the electrical system is over 30 years old and has become faulty and irreparable, this is usually the case where the home will need a full rewire. Yearly checks are always recommended to keep your home electrical system in tip-top shape, and to avoid costly repairs and, worst-case scenario, complete rewiring.

Practicing good electrical habits around the home, such as turning off appliances when not in use and actively trying to use less power where you can are all good habits. It is also worth considering an electrical upgrade if your current system cannot handle the electrical requirements of your home.
