Hiring A Specialist Electrician

An electrician that specialises in specific tasks can be a better choice vs one that does lots of general electrical jobs

What is a specialist electrician?

It is really easy to start looking for an electrician in Sydney, there are hundreds of them located in the Eastern Suburbs that can provide a wide range of services to do installations, fix faults or even electrical upgrades. There are certain electrical jobs that require specialised knowledge and years of experience to get the best outcomes and that is when a specialist electrician makes a lot of sense.

Hiring a general electrician to complete a specialised job, is like asking a general doctor to perform surgery on your broken toe. Even though a doctor may have the knowledge about how a broken toe might be repaired by conducting surgery it doesn’t mean they have the skills or specific knowledge to do it.

The same exact situation applies to electricians because many will be great at providing a general service like installing a new power point or light fitting, but many won’t have the expertise to do more complex tasks like complete lighting installations, EV charger installs, home automation set ups.

Sometimes it’s best to go straight to a specialist to get complete peace of mind as they are dealing with the specific products every day and spend most of their time & energy on them. This is why Darren chose to become a specialist electrician in Sydney so that the service he could provide was niche, but deep so that he could be an expert in specific service types. 

Specialist lighting electrician

There are many ways you can get creative with lighting in your home. Using the advice and expertise from a specialised lighting electrician will help you get the best results possible for your living space whether that is a home, unit or apartment. 

A lighting electrician specialist will have valuable expertise in the following:

  • LED lighting upgrades
  • Bathroom and kitchen lighting
  • Recessed lighting
  • Motion sensor installations
  • Smart lighting
  • Light dimmers and timers
  • Track and accent lighting
  • Lighting control installation

Good lighting doesn’t just help create the perfect home or working environment, it also improves functionality and saves on energy consumption and cost. There are many different ways you can use lighting to drastically improve an ordinary space, and a lighting electrician will know the best way to create the perfect space with special lighting products to suit your requirements & home.

It’s important to note we aren’t just talking about simply replacing an old bulb with an LED, that is what a general electrician can easily take care of. Darren can help you plan a whole lighting system for your existing home or renovation, inside or outside & even have it all connected to a home automation system for ease of use.

His specialist expertise gives you access to years of knowledge of building lighting systems in different environments to be pleasant on the eye, functional and reliable.

Home automation electrician specialist

If you’ve decided to take advantage of the benefits of the latest home automation products then an electrician that specialises in this service sector will make the job easy and stress-free, supplying the best brands and knowledge to turn your home into the perfect smart home. 

One example of a reliable home automation system is Fibaro that is relatively simple to install but it’s easy to use with voice control and remote access as well as being energy efficient. Another brand of home automation is  from C-Bus which is great value for money with advanced security functions, voice recognition and app control. You can cool or warm your house no matter where you are and do many other tasks depending how it is set up.

Both of these systems can be expanded, upgraded or change to suit your living requirements and Darren has expertise not only choosing the right components for your needs, but installing the required power, data cabling, control panels or switches to get any home automation set up ready for use.

A specialist electrician for EV charger installations

Electric vehicles are rising in popularity with more and more Sydney-siders now owning an EV of some type that require the help of an electrician to install an EV charger at their home.  Installing an EV charger in your home will mean faster charging times compared to using a standard power point. 

Darren is an electrician that also has experience installing EV chargers into car parks, offices, apartment blocks and shopping centres. With his specialist knowledge he knows exactly which EV charging models are the best for your vehicle & the type of install you want.

It’s possible to get an EV charger installed in your garage or a car park quite easily no matter whether it is inside or outside.

Darren Dewerson - licensed electrician in Sydney

I started in the industry installing security alarms and CCTV camera systems 25 years ago in London. I worked on thousands of sites servicing alarm electrical systems for large building companies, schools & other locations.

When I arrived in Australia I wasn’t allowed to apply for a security licence as I was not a citizen at the time so I decided get my TAFE qualifications and retrain as an electrician which complimented my electrical assistant work in London. I have been working as an electrician in Sydney since 2005.

For just over 40 years I have been involved in all types of electrical installations, upgrades, emergency repairs and set ups.
