Electrician St Kilda
Our people work with St Kilda property owners across every type of residential and commercial space. St Kilda itself is a suburb of Melbourne, located 6km to the south-east of the city’s CBD. It falls under the local government area of the City of Port Phillip, and was found to have a population of more than 20,000 at the 2016 Census. The suburb was given its name in the mid-1800s by then superintendent of the Port Phillip District Charles La Trobe, after a schooner named ‘Lady of St Kilda’ which was moored at the main beach for most of 1841. Today, St Kilda is an iconic beachside suburb, with well known landmarks and attractions including St Kilda Beach, St Kilda Pier, Luna Park, and the busy Acland Street commercial strip. It is also known worldwide for hosting the popular St Kilda Festival every summer.
Residential Electrical work
DESIGN AND INSTALLATION:
Whether you are building or renovating an entire home, or just need a one off job handling such as the installation of extra power points of a new light fitting, Carda Electrics has the right people with the right skills to help. We cover every aspect of residential electrical work, and really do mean it when we say there’s no job too big or too small! We’ll use our broad product knowledge and unrivalled expertise to ensure a job well done, with results that are designed to last.
Your switchboard is the control panel of your electrical wiring, and is responsible for sending power through the various cables and circuits around you home, ensuring your appliances are functioning properly. Old switchboards and circuit breaker switchboards that don’t include the necessary safety switches can lead to an unreliable or inadequate power supply, and significant safety risks. Our fully trained and highly skilled electricians are well equipped to perform switchboard installations and upgrades across every type of property. We promise all work will comply with Victorian safety regulations, and will be completed to a standard that will exceed expectations.
All wiring and electrical installations deteriorate with age. Older properties can therefore conceal faulty or damaged electrical wiring, fittings or equipment, which can lead to hazards including house fires and electric shocks. It is therefore vitally important that you ensure your wiring is properly safety checked, and our team of licensed and experienced electricians are the best people for the job!
An ever increasing number of people are replacing their existing downlight, globe and bulb lighting with the more cost-effective, environmentally-friendly and safer option of LEDs. Pretty much any kind of lighting system can be upgraded in this way, with Carda Electrics able to offer an array of different styles to ensure the most appropriate solution for any application.
Commercial Electrical work
DESIGN AND INSTALLATION:
Our team can work with you to ensure your property’s electrics always remain reliable and set-up to place you in the best position to optimise the productivity of your workforce. Whether you’re in the process of fitting out a new space, and want to upgrade an existing one, Carda Electrics can design a lighting and power solution to help meet your business needs. From retail stores to warehouses, factories and restaurants, our commercial electricians will guarantee the highest quality results, and can even perform work out-of-hours or over the weekend, for minimal disruption.
BODY CORP & PROPERTY MANAGERS
We are trusted by body corporates and property managers across St Kilda and the surrounding suburbs to respond quickly to meet their electrical needs. The reason we have been able to develop such great relationships in this space is simple … we fully understand the distinct set of challenges faced by people who manage properties, and work with them to develop solutions that will perfectly meet their requirements.
Test & tag
Faulty electrical equipment poses a serious safety risk to your property and the people in it. It also has the potential to cause extensive financial damage to your business. To prevent this and guarantee the safety of your people, you’ll want to ensure regular inspections of all electronic equipment. The Carda Electrics testing and tagging service will ensure your equipment is assessed by experienced professionals and complies with all Victorian OH&S standards, for ultimate peace of mind. You will also be demonstrating your commitment to the duty of care you owe to everybody who passes through your commercial space.
Exit & emergency lighting
If a major power failure occurs in your industrial space at any time of the day or night, the building can become too dark for people to safely and swiftly identify the best route out. To overcome this issue, emergency lighting is fitted as standard within all commercial properties, to help occupants evacuate in the event of an emergency. Victorian safety regulations specify that exit and emergency lighting is not only installed, but also tested every six months. Carda Electrics therefore offers a suite of related services ranging from logbook tests to the repair, maintenance and installation of the entire range of emergency lighting options.
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.
