In addition to designing and installing commercial lighting solutions, we are also available to repair or maintain an existing system as well as upgrade you to a newer system.

Commercial Solar Power System Installation

The team at Watkins Electrical specialise in industrial and commercial solar power system installations in Maryborough and Hervey Bay. We are proud to work with our clients to install innovative solar power solutions that have been designed specifically for commercial and industrial applications. As a fellow local business, we value and commend the commitment that businesses, small and large, make to the local community. We work efficiently and cautiously to ensure that there are no disruptions to the day-to-day operations of your business. Our team of professionals includes solar design specialists, who evaluate your needs and develop a design best suited to your business. Please send us an inquiry to organise a consultation.

We believe that investing in solar is a wise decision, not only from a costs perspective, but also from a brand image and marketing point of view. Businesses who take on solar power usage and advocate their usage to the public are applauded by locals, and are exposed to audiences that prefer goods produced or sold sustainably.

You’ll have the option of a solar and grid install, or a solar battery hybrid install, with the latter using solar panels entirely to provide power to your facilities. We recommend the battery hybrid option to most of our commercial and industrial clients because it allows them to reduce high electricity costs in the long run. All our solar power systems for our commercial customers are custom designed based on the client’s needs, property size, electricity usage and any planned growth on the facilities.

Repairs and Maintenance for Commercial Solar Power Systems:

In addition to our specialised commercial solar power solutions, we can provide ongoing maintenance and support for our customers to keep their systems running efficiently, and repair them immediately in the event of an emergency. This includes cleaning of your solar power systems, as well as evaluations of all the components in regular intervals to ensure they’re operating as efficiently as designed.

We encourage this proactive method to our commercial and industrial clients to prevent costly outages and inefficient systems. Furthermore, we can combine this with commercial electrical maintenance of the rest of your property.

Watkins Electrical are experienced in the maintenance of solar power systems and when cleaning your solar panels, we also audit the effectiveness all components of your solar system to ensure that it is running as efficiently as possible.

Solar Power Repairs:

We carry all the most common components for solar power systems on hand to ensure we don’t have to return again later. Our components are of the highest quality, and we only use SMA inverters because of their quality and commitment to customer service. Our skilled technicians are experienced in the design of solar power systems, and can easily identify faulty components in your system, potentially saving you money from other solar repairers who may insist on complete system replacement.

Residential Solar Power Systems: Installation, Repairs and Maintenance

Watkins Electrical are local Hervey Bay and Maryborough electricians, specialising in the installation, repairs and maintenance of solar power systems. We have a team of nearly 20 staff, allowing us to have technicians specialised in the design and installation of solar power systems that suit the needs and budget constraints of our customers effectively. Please give us a call to arrange an on-site quote from one of our electricians. For solar-powered water heating, please visit our hot water systems page.

Investing in solar power is a fantastic way to save money for property owners that don’t want to pay to be connected up to the power grid, as well as for people planning to stay at their current residence for a few more years to come. It is also a much more environmentally-friendly option for supplying electricity to your home and appliances.

Solar Power Systems: What Are My Options?

You’ll have the option of a grid solar install, or a hybrid battery install. Hybrid battery installations are perfect for complete off-the-grid living; you won’t have to pay another electricity bill again! The power generated by your panels gets stored in an on-site battery so you’ll still have power on overcast days.

The problem with hybrid battery installations is that, because battery technology is still in development, initial implementation can be quite expensive. Grid solar installations, on the other hand, utilise the electric grid and the energy generated by your solar system collectively to power your house. installs are great for people who don’t have enough space or budget for a complete hybrid system.

Our range of domestic systems goes up to 10kWh and are designed by our technicians specifically to suit your needs, rather than installing one-size-fits-all products that can look bulky and out of place. We use high quality inverters from exclusively selected suppliers in our installations and maintenance because of their fantastic quality and customer service. We can however install an inverter that you supply.

Split System Air Conditioning Installation in Hervey Bay and Maryborough

Watkins Electrical provide durable and reliable split-system air-conditioning installations and cleaning services to Hervey Bay and Maryborough residents. As local electricians since 1951 with offices in Hervey Bay and Maryborough, we’ve developed our technique and skills to keep up with the latest developments in air-conditioning technology. You can trust us to keep your home cool and install units diligently and efficiently.

We’re extremely lucky to live on the Fraser Coast; it truly is one of the most beautiful parts of the world that people travel a long way to visit. One trade off to our beautiful landscape however, is the extreme heat and humidity we get every Summer. To cope with the heat, we stock high quality split-system air-conditioning units, designed for the Summers we get in Queensland. You’ll be pleased with the durability and energy efficiency of our air-conditioning units.

When performing our quote for an install, we evaluate the existing electrical componentry of your home and notify you of any necessary modifications, such as an upgrade of your switchboards. Our skilled team of electricians carefully analyse your needs and recommend a system suited to you, or alternatively, they can install an air-conditioner that you’ve already sourced yourself. Please give us a call for an on-site quote for air-conditioning installation.

Air Conditioning Cleaning:

We recommend cleaning your air-conditioners every 6-12 months to avoid air contamination. By not having your air-conditioning units regularly cleaned, you could be potentially exposing your household to mould and bacteria. Furthermore, clogged filters can block air pressure and limit the efficiency of your air-conditioner. Watkins Electrical provide extensive air-conditioning cleaning that ensures energy efficiency and clean air flow.

Smart Wiring Installation in Hervey Bay and Maryborough

Smart wiring installation is a fantastic way to future-proof your home, and the team at Watkins Electrical are proud to offer this service to Hervey Bay and Maryborough residents. We have approved installers of CBUS systems who can design a system catered specifically to your home for a retrofit, as well as work off plans for new builds. To organise an on-site smart wiring quote at a time best suited to you, please get in touch with us.

What is Smart Wiring?

Smart Wiring allows you to future-proof your home against new infrastructure and appliances. For example, you may decide that you don’t want Pay-TV in your home, but want to avoid tearing up your walls should you choose to subscribe to it later. Or, if you’re installing sensors in your home, we recommend using smart wiring in case you decide to install additional sensors in the future.

With our increased reliance on technology, it’s worth considering smart wiring to ensure that your home is built in a way that enables it to incorporate new technology or features in the future without having to rip up walls and potentially upgrade your switchboards. Smart Wiring is particularly relevant for those in areas about to be wired up to the NBN (national broadband network).

Expert Electricians:

On our team of close to 20 staff, we have a CBUS Approved Technician, specialised in installing smart wiring systems. This allows us to design and install systems catered specifically to your home and needs. While CBUS is certainly the top of the range for smart wiring systems, we can also install cheaper systems to suit any budget constraints.

When visiting you for a quote, we carefully evaluate your needs and make any recommendations based on professional experience. Our installers take extra precaution when servicing any of our customers, especially when it involves complex Smart Wiring systems.

Smoke Alarm Systems: Installation, Repairs and Testing in Hervey Bay and Maryborough

Watkins Electrical provide a range of electrical services relating to smoke alarm systems including installation, repairs and testing. Our team are dedicated to the safety of your family, and we highly recommend getting your existing alarms tested and if necessary, new alarms installed in your home to maintain their safety. Our team of professional electricians are familiar with all the rules and regulations surrounding fire safety equipment installation, and have been trained with the technical skills and experience passed down over the 65 years Watkins Electrical has been operating.

Please get in touch to have one of our professional technicians assess the fire safety measures your home has in place, at a time best suited to you.

Fire Alarm Systems: Your Legal Obligations

The Queensland Government has recently passed legislation requiring all new dwellings and renovated properties built from January 1, 2017 to have smoke alarms fitted in every room and hallway. Furthermore, properties being leased or sold will also need to meet these requirements from January 1, 2022 onwards. More information is available on the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services website.

Fire Alarm System Installation:

Fatal house fires absolutely devastate small local communities such as ours, and we consider ourselves responsible for ensuring the safety of local Hervey Bay and Maryborough residents. We don’t gamble with lives by installing cheap fire alarm systems, and we specifically source high quality alarms for our customers for added peace of mind. Our technicians carry high quality components with them, allowing for quick installations without the need to come back at a later time.

Fire Alarm Testing and Maintenance:

Fire alarms should be frequently tested, and batteries should be maintained to ensure they can operate at their fullest capabilities in the event of an emergency. Fire alarms can be tested on some alarms by holding in the button for a few seconds until a beep sounds. If no beep sounds, it’s time to get a new battery, or perhaps even replacement of the unit.

For those with tall ceilings or alarms that cannot be button-tested, we offer a testing and maintenance service. We’ll also check surrounding electrical components, such as safety switches and switchboards to assess whether your house is as protected as much as possible from an electrical hazard. We recommend that landlords get their fire alarms inspected on final inspections, or before a new tenant moves in.

Please get in touch with us to organise a quote for a hot water system installation.

Choosing a Hot Water System: Solar vs Grid Water Heaters

Water heating systems are a necessary, yet highly expensive addition to your home, and as such, it’s likely that you’re wondering whether a solar or grid water heating system is best for you. This is a complex question as the needs of our customers vary. When speaking to one of our experienced electricians, they’ll listen to your needs and recommend an appropriate solution based on your usage and living conditions. For example, if you intend to move soon, it may be unwise to buy a more expensive solar heating system when it won’t end up paying itself off before you’ve moved.

We realise that it’s a big investment, and professional opinion matters greatly to our customers. Please give us a call to discuss your options or organise a quote on a hot water system installation.

Hot Water System Maintenance:

Sometimes water heating systems don’t function effectively, and you usually don’t find out until you get your next bill. We’re highly experienced in not only the installation of hot water systems, but also the maintenance and upkeep of them. We carefully analyse the condition of your system components individually to find out the problem, to avoid making you pay for a replacement system unnecessarily.

If you are experiencing problems with your hot water system, we also provide an after-hours emergency electrician service to get the problem sorted immediately.
