Whether it’s a stove, range hood or wall-mounted TV, the team at Watkins Electrical has got you covered. Visit our projects gallery to see some of the different projects that we have had the opportunity to work on throughout Hervey Bay and Maryborough.

The range of appliances in the average household has expanded dramatically since our initial establishment in 1951. As such, we have expanded our services to provide installation of appliances to the main power supply, such as wall-mounted TVs and kitchen appliances. You may also require professional installation assistance if your new appliance is a European or American brand which was designed for a different type of power outlet then what we use in Australia.

For more information or to book a professional electrician for the installation of your new electrical appliances, give the team at Watkins Electrical a call on (07) 4121 4294.

Professional Installation of Electrical Appliances:

Our team of professionals combine modern techniques and knowledge with the expert wisdom passed down from our founder, “Nutty” Watson, over three generations. We’re highly experienced in installing electrical appliances and take extra care to ensure safe operation and durability. Installing split-system air-conditioning is more complex, and we offer a separate service for this. Similarly, we can also install power and data points if that is all your appliance requires.

The types of appliance we commonly install include:

  • Stoves
  • Ovens
  • Cooktops
  • Rangehoods
  • Wall-Mounted TVs with hidden cabling

Switchboard Upgrades and Safety Switches

Watkins Electrical provide safety switch installation and switchboard upgrades to local Maryborough and Hervey Bay residents. Established in 1951 by a Maryborough local, we’ve managed to retain many of our initial customers and their descendants due to our reputation for quality workmanship. In that time, however, our reliance on technology has increased and many of the switchboards and safety switches installed back then are outdated and not in line with current industry standards – some older houses don’t even have safety switches!

Due to the hidden-away nature of switchboards and safety switches, many people are unaware of the dangers that an outdated system poses. Watkins Electrical take precautionary measures when installing new switchboards and safety switches to make sure nothing is overlooked, keeping your family and appliances safe from unnecessary electrical hazard.

If you would like more information regarding this service or are concerned that your switchboard is outdated, give the team at Watkins Electrical a call today on (07) 4121 4294.

What are Safety Switches and Switchboards?

Safety switches, or residual current devices prevent zapping. These differ from circuit breakers, which prevent power surges and protect your appliances; safety switches protect people. It is vital that these are installed in homes to prevent your loved ones from harm. We sometimes find that these are non-existent on older homes. Safety switches are a legal requirement for all homes built from 1992 onwards, and they must be installed on older buildings by the landlord after purchase and before leasing out the property. So if you are living in a building which was built before 1992 and which you have lived in or owned since before 1992, then there is a good chance that your home does not have a safety switch.

On the other hand, switchboards are the brain of your house’s electrical circuit, and they are where all the electrical ‘nerves’ of your house meet. Old, outdated switchboards may not be capable of supporting the installation of new appliances; for example, when we install split-system air-conditioning, we quite often have to upgrade an existing switchboard to prevent short circuits. If you have flickering lights or experience power trips frequently, chances are you need your switchboard to be replaced. Please give us a call if you’ve experienced any of these problems, or are concerned about the status of your safety switches, to ensure the safety of you, your family, and your appliances.

Light, Data and Power Point Installation:

With the growing use of technology in Australian households, sometimes there just isn’t enough power points to suit your needs. When installing new power, data or light points, we inspect your componentry including safety switches and switchboard, making sure they’re still in satisfactory condition. This allows us to ensure the safety of your loved ones isn’t compromised by faulty or overloaded electric circuits.

Our technicians carry all the most common light fittings and switches with them to ensure quick installation with no need for a second call-out. We’ve built strong relationships with wholesalers and component manufacturers (including being a member of Club Clipsal), which allows us to source any fitting you desire if you have a specific décor or design in mind. Want to convert your existing bathroom light fitting into a 3-in-1 light, fan and heating fitting? No problem!
