Renovations and Extensions
Renovations can become costly if they are not planned properly. Prompt Power will work with you from start to finish to design and implement an electrical solution that meets your renovation needs. Whether you are doing a minor renovation and replacing light switches, powerpoints and lights or a major renovation requiring a new electrical design and re-wiring – we are here to help.
Things to consider when doing an electrical renovation:
  • All electrical work needs to be performed by a licensed electrician, this includes simply replacing a powerpoint or light. Ensure your family is safe and avoid potential issues with your home insurance by using a licensed electrican who can certify their work.
  • Ensure your elecrician is fully licensed and insured. It is a requirement that businesses conducting electrical work hold not just an Electrical Work License but also an Electrical Contractors License. An Electrical Contractors license requires the business to have a minimum $5 million public liability insurance. We will happily provide you with our license numbers or show you our licenses on request.
  • Any electrical renovations done must meet current Australian Standards for Wiring Rules (AS3000). There are a number of legal requirements that must be followed when designing rooms such as bathrooms, kitchens and outdoor areas with pools and spas. These rooms have a number of zones that, due to electricity and water not mixing, limit the types of devices that may be installed. It is better to be proactive and have an electrician help with your design to ensure it complies with legislation.
