Elsternwick’s Reliable Electricians
We are proud of the reputation Carda Electrics has built for being the trusted, expert electrician to the people of Elsternwick, a suburb of Melbourne located 9 kilometres south east of the CBD. It sits in the local government area of the City of Glen Eira, and had a population of more than 10,300 according to the 2016 census.
Elsternwick originally took its name from Charles Ebden’s house ‘Elste’, the largest local property in the area at the time. Interestingly, the location had previously been known as Red Bluff.

We have the knowledge, skills, tools and experience required to oversee the design, installation and ongoing maintenance of every type of residential electrical appliance and system in Elsternwick.

We are the trusted experts when it comes to switchboard upgrades, repairs and replacements in Elsternwick. It’s important to remember your switchboard is amongst the most important elements of your entire electrical system, essentially acting as the control panel responsible for the proper functioning of all wiring and appliances.
When power enters from outside the home, it flows directly into the switchboard, which then takes responsibility for sending the correct amount of electricity through to the right circuits in and around your property, making sure everything is able to work the way it’s meant to. Some properties have an old fuse board or circuit breaker switch board, which are missing the appropriate safety switches.
In turn, this can lead to short circuits, an intermittent or reduced power supply, and even total power outages. A malfunctioning switchboard also poses a significant safety risk. For that reason, we will thoroughly evaluate your switchboard’s performance, and make sure we offer a solution to ensure your house always benefits from a safe and reliable power supply.
While older homes have plenty of advantages, including lots of character and period features, they can also come with a few downsides. One such downside is the impact of many years of wear and tear, that can mean your electrics underperform or even pose a serious safety hazard.
If you own an older property, you’ll need to be vigilant about checking the situation with your cabling every now and again, so that any outdated elements or damage can be rectified. The team at Carda Electrics is on-hand to perform a thorough evaluation of the electrics in your home, paying close attention to all wires, before identifying and working to resolve issues quickly and to the highest standard.
From halogen downlights to outdated pendant fittings, pretty much any light fitting can be upgraded to incorporate LEDs. This brings a wealth of advantages, including being more efficient and affordable to run than alternatives, as well as having a reduced environmental impact. LEDs even come with a much lower risk of presenting a fire hazard!
Talk to Carda Electrics today, and we’ll discuss your options for making sure we select and install your LEDs in a style that suits your space and taste.
