Brighter, budget friendly LED lighting
Adelaide Hills Electrician are the experts in upgrading homes with LED downlighting in the Adelaide Hills. With expert advice and knowledge, you can receive the latest in cost effective LED downlights to improve your homes lighting and reduce costs.
Benefits of LEDs
LEDs are extremely energy efficient, lighting up a space with a small amount of electrical current. LEDs do not heat up as they do not have a filament in them, reducing the risk of fire in your home. This also means that they are extremely energy efficient when compared to traditional light bulbs, where more than 80% of the electricity used to power them can be wasted on creating heat and not light. LEDs are solid state devices, meaning they have no moving parts. This results in LEDs being more durable, having a longer lifespan and even more savings for you with reduced maintenance costs.
How much can you save with LEDs
Whilst every households saving will be different dependent on the number of globes being used, layout of home, the electricity costs etc – we’ve provided a general example to help understand how considerable the savings can be when switching to the latest cost effective LED downlight technology.
Based on having 30 downlights in your home and the lights being on 8hrs per day, the savings are as follows:
- 30 x 50w halogen x 8 hrs x 365 days x $0.40c per kilowatt hour = $1,752 per year
- 30 x 10w LED x 8 hrs x 365 days x $0.40c per kilowatt hour = $351 per year
That’s an effective saving of $1,401 per year on your electricity bill.

The older your home is, the more important it is for a rewiring inspection to be done. Although the wiring materials and techniques were once seen as the industry’s standard, they could be so outdated to the extent of posing danger to you and your home. The old, deteriorated wiring can be the possible cause of damage to your electric appliances, a fire and even electrocution at any given time. Older wiring may display rubber or cloth wrapped wires and metal conduits, clear fire and electrical hazards which should only be altered by a professional to prevent an accident.
Some signs that you need a rewiring inspection:
- Fuses are blowing frequently
- Light bulbs seem to not last as long
- Porcelain fuses in your switchboard
- Cabling covered in rubber or cloth
Rewiring is a serious task, and such should only be attempted by a professional electrician to ensure that the job is done right with no injuries. Contact Adelaide Hills Electrician for a free quote on getting your house rewired. Call us today on 0421 673 165.

Safety Switches and Surge Protection
A vital aspect of your electrical system is the safety switch. A safety switch has become more important as electrical appliances have become so prominent in everyday life, and a correctly installed safety switch will be able to prevent accidents and even save lives.
How safety switches work?
When a person makes direct contact with electricity, it is directed away from its main path in the circuit. A safety switch will detect this change in an electrical circuit and switches the power to the circuit off in as little as 0.3 seconds. Fuses and circuit breakers protect against short circuiting and current overloading, making safety switches the only effective method of protecting against electric shock.
Do I really need a safety switch?
Safety switches provide protection against injuries caused by electric shock. There have been fatalities related to electrical shock which could have been prevented with a safety switch, however most older homes do not have safety switches as electrical appliances were not as common. In 1991 it became mandatory in South Australia to have safety switches installed in all newly built homes and buildings where electric circuits where altered or added.

Bathroom heaters will ensure that your bathroom is warm during winter. With a bathroom heater combination unit, your bathroom can have warmth, lighting, and an exhaust fan.
Benefits of a heater combination unit in the bathroom
Bathrooms are consistently one of the wettest rooms in households, making them prone to mould production if moisture is allowed to build up with a lack of ventilation. When moisture is allowed to build up on your bathroom surfaces, they become a breeding ground for bacteria which can turn your bathroom into an unhygienic and potentially hazardous one. This excess moisture also has the capability of damaging the fittings, fixtures and wall paint that you have in your bathroom as well.
An exhaust fan installed and fitted correctly will be able to extract the moisture from your bathroom, preventing excess moisture buildup and condensation from forming in your bathroom. A ceiling exhaust fan will also be able to filter out any unwanted odours from your bathroom and will be able to provide additional warmth when fitted with a heating light.
Bathroom Heater Installation requirements
The main requirement for a bathroom heater to be installed is sufficient ceiling space above your bathroom. Smaller ceiling cavities will be taken into consideration when choosing a suitable heater combination unit for your home.

A ceiling fan adds functionality and design elements to your home. Contrary to what a lot of people think, they are useful in both summer and winter. During summer, using a fan will provide cooling to your home and in winter the fan can be used in reverse mode, which pushes warm air up to recirculate it around the room to gently warm the room. Using a fan is a great choice for families that opt to use a more natural, energy saving solution to climate control. Depending upon your preference, you can control your ceiling fans either through a new or existing light switch or with a remote control.

Ceiling Exhaust Fans
Ceiling exhaust fans are a vital part of your home’s ventilation system, preventing water damage and mould buildup in your home. Not only do they extract moisture, they also get rid of any unwanted odours and fumes keeping to keep your air fresh and your surfaces dry.
Useful areas to have an exhaust fan in
Bathrooms and Toilets – Bathrooms are consistently one of the wettest rooms in households, making them prone to mould production if moisture is allowed to build up with a lack of ventilation. An exhaust fan installed and fitted correctly will be able to extract the moisture from your bathroom, preventing excess moisture buildup and condensation from forming in your bathroom. A ceiling exhaust fan will also be able to filter out any unwanted odours from your bathroom and will be able to provide additional warmth when fitted with a heating light.
Kitchen – A correctly fitted exhaust fan will remove all steam, smoke, odours and moisture from the kitchen while you cook. This will prevent your kitchen from building up odour and becoming stuffy.
Laundry – If you use a dryer, having an exhaust fan in your laundry is something you should consider. Laundry rooms are closed off to minimise the noise coming from laundry appliances, so it is important an exhaust fan is installed correctly here to extract condensation and prevent moisture and mould build up.
It is important to ensure that all your ceiling exhaust fans are properly fitted by a qualified electrician, regardless of where they are in your home. The kitchen exhaust fan, specifically, should be extracting air and moisture and depositing it outside and not into your roof cavity.
HARP Electrical has professional electricians who will serve you with a smile as well as ensuring that your exhaust fans are positioned correctly for maximum efficiency. Our staff will also consult with you so that they can complete the work you need done in a timely manner while avoiding the disruption of your home life as much as possible.
