New Builds

Illawarra Electrical have experience fitting out new homes, granny flats and project homes. Our team can assist with electrical layout design including Aerial, Security, Data & Communications.

Smart Homes

Imagine driving into your street, and your phone communicates with your home, using Geofencing, to turn on the lights as you drive up to the garage. You open the front door and the lights automatically turn on with door sensors. When you step towards your front door, you enter a pin instead of fumbling between all your different keys. Inside you’d like to hear some music and dim the lights or turn on the coffee machine. The possibilities are endless

Granny Flats

If you are a homeowner with extra space, splitting your home into a duplex, turning your garage into a living space or adding a granny flat out the back can be a very lucrative investment. Our team specialise in electrical granny flat solutions, Separating the electrical meter and NBN supply.

Hot Water Systems

Illawarra Electrical is available 24/7. Whether your hot water system has no power, a faulty thermostat or a blown element we will come out and get your hot water working again.

Gas Hot Water

Gas hot water systems are more energy efficient as they heat water faster and don’t need to run as often as the electric systems. Typically a continuous burning pilot flame ignites the main burner when needed. Since they don’t need a large storage tank the actual systems are smaller, especially the tankless instant gas water heaters.

Electric Hot Water

Traditional electric hot water systems are expensive and inefficient to run because they are operating majority of the day and night. However, ‘off-peak’ electricity tariffs now work in conjunction with modern electric systems that make running them cheaper and better for the environment.

Feature Lighting

Illawarra Electrical offer indoor and outdoor LED feature lighting. Our services include LED strips, Pendant lights, RGB lighting, Pool lighting, Balcony lighting, Garage lighting, Outdoor sensor lighting and step lighting.

LED Lighting

LED lighting is a extremely energy efficient. Lighting technology has the potential to fundamentally change the future of lighting. LED's use at least 75% less energy and last 25 times longer, than incandescent lighting.

Types Of Lighting

Effective use of lighting is integral to the retail experience. Lighting is a powerful tool that sets the mood of the store, and can be used to draw attention to highlighted products. There are four main types of lighting that are used in a retail setting: Ambient, Task, Accent and Decorative.

Switchboard Upgrade

Electrical switchboard upgrades come with many benefits and may be critically needed at times. Upgrading switchboards requires a qualified electrician to properly inspect older systems and identify what needs to be updated. 

Why Upgrade

Electrical switchboards are responsible for diverting electricity and power across your home. There are many reasons for a switchboard upgrade, including old age, overheated cables, short-circuiting appliances, too many household appliances, lights flickering and receiving an electrical defect notice. Property owners are required by Australian Standards to have up to date switchboards as electrocution and house fires are more likely to occur within older switchboards.

Do I Need An Upgrade

As technology becomes more advanced, household energy consumption will also continue to increase. The result is that now more than ever, Australians have more household appliances which in turn requires more energy. Old switchboards such as old ceramic and porcelain fuses are just not equipped to continue to service the ever-growing electricity demand.
