If you’re looking for a local electrician in the Hampton area who really knows their stuff, you need look no further than Carda Electrics.
Hampton is a suburb of Melbourne, located around 14 kilometres to the south east of the city’s central business district. It sits within the local government area of the City of Bayside and had a population of almost 13,400 at the 2016 Census. Residents and visitors enjoy its bustling shopping district at Hampton Street, with its multitude of popular boutiques, cafes and restaurants. The suburb started life with the name Retreat (after the local Retreat Hotel), but it was ultimately renamed Hampton in honour of local market gardener Dyas Hampton, after affluent local landowners decided the name Hampton sounded ‘more regal’!
Residential Electrical work
DESIGN AND INSTALLATION:
We have everything it takes to effectively oversee all manner of electrical design and installation practices in your home, with expertise covering the installation of appliances, to adding additional power points, and everything else in between. The Carda Electrics approach is to combine our unrivalled levels of expertise with a touch of creativity, and it’s this approach that our clients across Hampton have come to love us for.
Never underestimate the importance of your home’s switchboard!! It acts as the central control panel (or even the brain!) of your electrical system, with power entering the property from outside, before flowing straight into it. The switchboard will then intuitively direct the power supply towards the various circuits around your home, so all electrical appliances can function properly.
Our people are known for their enviable capabilities around switchboard upgrades, and the ability to install the right solution to keep your home running, with a reliable and uninterrupted flow of electricity.
But why and when should you consider engaging an expert to perform an assessment of your current switchboard? If you have an old or malfunctioning fuse board, or a circuit breaker switchboard without the usual safety switches, you are opening yourself up to a world of potential issues, from short circuits, to black outs, to various safety hazards. Put your mind at ease by calling the team at Carda Electrics today. We’re ready and waiting to spring into action and ensure your property is being best served by its trusty switchboard.
While older Hampton homes can be grand, impressive and bursting with character, the extra years of wear and tear can mean extra maintenance is required, in particular when it comes to your electrics. Left unchecked, old and potentially damaged cabling poses a serious threat to your home and all who live in it. Contacting an electrician to perform a thorough assessment and make any necessary changes will mean you can rest easy. And the great news is you won’t need to worry about it again for several years!
More and more people are turning to LED lighting to save money, reduce their environmental footprint and limit the risk of fire in their homes. LEDs are far superior in each of these regards, when compared to traditional alternatives. And the best news is your existing halogen downlights, pendant fittings and almost any other type of light, can be easily upgraded to LED. We’ll even make sure we work with you to select a style that suits your space and aligns with your personal taste.
Commercial Electrical work
DESIGN AND INSTALLATION:
It makes sense that businesses have a totally different set of requirements when compared to homeowners. If you’re running a business, you’ll understand the crucial importance of having a reliable electricity supply, and appliances that do what they’re supposed to. The last thing you want is reduced productivity due to unexpected and prolonged downtime!
From warehouses to factories, and pretty much any other type of commercial space, Carda Electrics has got your electrical needs covered! We’ve worked tirelessly to build our standing in the Hampton area as the ‘go-to’ for the design and installation of custom-built electrical systems and solutions that support businesses and employees to do their best work, day-in-day-out. We have a team of specialist commercial electricians, dependable and professional, and committed to ensuring your electrics are one less thing you need to worry about. You can instead focus that time on business-as-usual and development or growth activities. And as if that wasn’t reason enough, we can even arrange to do our work outside office hours, or even over the weekend, for minimal disruption to your workforce.
BODY CORP & PROPERTY MANAGERS
Calling all Hampton-based body corporates and property managers!! Again, you are likely to have a set of electrical requirements that are quite different to those of homeowners and businesses. Carda Electrics specialises in managing your building’s electrics in a way that will ensure an ideal solution to meet your needs, allow you to do your job, and also create happy residents!
Test & tag
If you’re running a commercial property, you’ll want to make sure you’re fully compliant with all Victorian OH&S regulations. One way to achieve this is through testing and tagging. Essentially, Carda Electrics can come into your space and thoroughly evaluate every electrical appliance for functionality and safety. All being well, you’ll then be issued with a tag or ‘seal of approval’, which basically confirms each appliance is running as it should be, and is safe to be used. In addition, you will be demonstrating a commitment to duty-of-care and maintaining a safe workplace, keeping your employees and visitors safe from unexpected electrical injuries.
Exit & emergency lighting
You’ll no doubt have noticed exit and emergency lighting seemingly installed everywhere when you’re out and about, and there’s a very sensible reason for it. These light fittings offer visibility and help safely guide people out of a building if an emergency occurs. Official regulations for commercial buildings require these specific light fittings not only to be installed, but also to be tested every six months. To help ensure your exit and emergency lighting is fit-for-purpose, we can offer a range of services ranging from logbook tests, to repairs, maintenance and new installations.
SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE 24 hour
We have all your service and maintenance needs covered for homes and business premises, including a 24hour emergency service. No matter what time of the day or night we have a qualified emergency electrician no more than a call away when you need us most.

Are LEDs worth all the fuss?
LEDs use a fraction of the electricity of conventional lights (halogen incandescent).
