How to Know if You Need an Emergency Electrician in Sydney
Of course, not every electrical project is deemed an emergency. You can probably wait for an appointment to replace a ceiling fan, for example. But some tasks are clearly more urgent and require more immediate solving. Here are some of the most common emergency electrical call outs.
Issues with your switch board: This can include repetitive tripping of specific circuits which could be a sign of overload or damage.
Lights that keep flickering: This can be a sign that more is wrong than just a fixture such as faulty wiring or an overloaded circuit.
Plugs that spark when used: This is a fire hazard and should be immediately addressed for improper installation or overload.
Smoke or burnt smells from outlets: This is a clear indicator that there’s faulty wiring that could cause a fire and should be dealt with quickly.
If any of the issues seem to be causing smoke, sparks, or burning smells, unplug or turn off the items associated with the electrics and call for help as soon as possible. It should go without saying since electrical work in Australia must be done by a licensed provider, but absolutely do not try to fix these problems on your own. Read More

How Long Does Emergency Electrical Service Take?
In part, this is going to depend on the provider you choose. Some tout 24/7 call in service, but that doesn’t mean they’ll have someone out to your home fast. Many will employ an answering service only to schedule a call out for the next day, or even later.
As you do your research on the best electricians in Sydney, be sure to ask how they handle their emergency service. Those that are tops will send someone out as quickly as possible. That’s why it’s also important to choose a local team that actively services your area.
What Will an Emergency Electrician Call Out Cost Me?
This is going to depend largely on when you need the help. Time of day factors greatly into how emergency electrical services price out their call out fees. For example, a same-day emergency call out during standard business hours will likely cost $225 + GST plus labour & parts. Labour rates vary depending on the time of day and there is a minimum 1 hour charge.
Choosing Sydney’s Emergency Electrician Before Trouble Strikes
Other than making sure that an electrician is local and provides actual 24/7, responsive emergency electrical services, how can you know you’re getting a quality provider. Start by looking at how many years they have been in business. At least 5 years is an indicator that they will have a reputation of reliability and trustworthiness.
From there, you can start to ask a series of questions. You might be hesitant to quiz a provider if you’re facing an emergency situation, but these can help you make sure that the right electrician is selected for a critical job in your home.
“Are all of your electricians licensed and insured to do this work in my home?”
“Do you need to get permits and, if so, do you handle them for me?”
“What warranties or guarantees do you offer on the work you do?”
“Do you have customer references or testimonials you can share?”
“Do you offer free estimates with all service fees outlined in advance?”
“How long do you think a project like this will take to complete?”
