Smoke Alarm Installation

We can provide our customers with professional smoke alarm installations to protect their properties. If you require a competent smoke alarm installation for your residential, commercial, or industrial space, we have the tools and expertise to help. Installing smoke alarms ensures that you and your belongings have the right safeguards in place to protect you from a fire.

Installing smoke alarms is not only beneficial because they alert you to the presence of fires on your property, but it’s a legal requirement too. All properties in Australia must have at least one active smoke alarm, and if the property was built or renovated after 1997, the smoke alarm must also be hardwired.

We take the risk of fire extremely seriously at O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Lismore, which is why you can count on us to professionally install working smoke alarms in appropriate places throughout your property. We don’t want to risk anything going wrong in the event of a fire, so we ensure that all of our work is carried out competently and to industry standards.


Test and Tag Services

Our electrical specialists at O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Lismore offer professional test and tag services for domestic and commercial properties. We work with all types of plug-in electrical appliances and infrastructure to keep your property safe and in full compliance with the latest Australian Standards.

If you’re a business, then legally, you must have all appliances and electrical equipment officially certified, tested and tagged to remain compliant and ensure workplace safety. The latest governance for this can be found under the Occupational Health & Safety Section AS/NZS 3760:2022. Failure to follow these guidelines could result in hefty fines – so to avoid this, give us a call.

Our team of experts works quickly and professionally at all times, ensuring you can go about your day-to-day business while we work. We carry out a variety of tests using our appliance testers to assess the integrity of your appliances and equipment. We can find potentially life-threatening faults or electrical leaks that you simply can’t assess on your own. Our testing and tagging service includes:

  • Robust reporting
  • Replacements and repairs for plugs
  • Full testing and tagging services
  • Barcode tagging
  • Three-phase testing
  • Safety switch testing


Switchboard Upgrades

At O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Lismore, we offer an extensive switchboard upgrades service that ensures your switchboards are up to code and fully compliant with Australian Standards, specifically AS3000. Older switchboards that use porcelain fuses are outdated and potentially dangerous, while old fuses might be faulty and won’t be able to protect your property from electrical fires or other issues. This is why getting a switchboard upgrade is such an important part of maintaining your property.

We bring a team of experts with us on every switchboard upgrade that we do. We’re comfortable working with old and new properties and offer a cost-effective solution that keeps you and your property safe. Our team takes electrical safety very seriously, so you can rest assured that the work we do is up to code and all industry standards.

With over 40 years of industry experience, we provide an excellent switchboard upgrade service to our customers. We do the job right every time and don’t cut corners. Our customers choose us because:

  • We’re certified to do the work
  • We provide top-quality workmanship at affordable prices
  • We’re honest and up-front about the work we do

LED Lighting Upgrades

If you’re still using older lighting solutions, our team at O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Lismore offers LED lighting upgrades for domestic and commercial properties. Switching to LED lighting is a wise investment because it offers much greater energy efficiency, leading to lower energy bills.

LED lighting technology is more efficient and long-lasting than older forms of lighting. Moreover, there are various grants and schemes available that mean you might be able to switch over to LED lighting for much less than you think.

With over 40 years of industry experience and the latest tools of the trade, you can rely on our team at O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Lismore to help you with all your LED lighting upgrade needs. Call us today on 1800 779 069 to find out more or to schedule an appointment.

Electrician Measuring The Voltage Of An Outlet


Frequently Asked Questions

1. What safety measures do your electricians take while working?

Our electricians follow strict safety guidelines, which include the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), isolation of electrical circuits they are working on and maintaining up-to-date knowledge of the latest safety procedures in the electrical industry.

2. How quickly can I expect a response in an emergency?

We understand the urgency of electrical emergencies and strive to respond as swiftly as possible. While response time can depend on factors like traffic and distance, we generally aim to arrive on-site within a few hours.

3. Are there any electrical tasks I can do myself without an electrician?

While you may be able to change a light bulb or reset a circuit breaker, most electrical tasks require a qualified electrician due to the risks involved. This ensures safety and compliance with Australian standards and regulations.

4. How can I identify if my home’s electrical system is outdated or unsafe?

Signs of an outdated or unsafe electrical system may include frequent tripping of circuit breakers, flickering lights, discoloured power outlets or experiencing electric shocks when plugging or unplugging devices. If you observe any of these signs, we recommend getting a professional safety inspection.

5. Can you provide advice on energy-saving practices and products?

Yes, we can advise on the best practices and products to reduce your energy consumption. This might include switching to LED lighting, installing energy-efficient appliances and implementing effective power management systems.

6. What should I do if I smell burning or see sparks from an electrical outlet?

First, ensure everyone’s safety by keeping away from the outlet. Avoid touching it and unplug any devices if it’s safe to do so. Then, switch off the power at the circuit breaker if you can safely reach it and call us immediately. Sparks or a burning smell could indicate a serious electrical issue that needs prompt attention.

7. Do you offer flexible scheduling for non-emergency services?

Yes, we do. We understand that our clients have varied schedules, so we strive to accommodate appointments at a time that suits you best.

8. Do you provide warranties or guarantees for your work?

Yes, we stand behind the quality of our work and provide warranties. The specifics can vary depending on the nature of the job, so please ask for details when you schedule a service.

9. How often should I have my home’s electrical system inspected?

As a rule, we recommend having your home’s electrical system professionally inspected every 5 years. However, if your home is older or if you’ve experienced electrical issues, more frequent inspections may be necessary.

10. Can I hire you for long-term maintenance contracts?

Absolutely, we offer flexible long-term maintenance contracts for commercial and industrial clients. This ensures your electrical systems stay up to date and helps to prevent potential issues from developing.

11. What payment methods do you accept?

We accept various payment methods for your convenience, including cash, credit/debit cards and direct bank transfers.

12. Can you help with the installation of smart home systems?

Yes, we can. Our electricians are trained in the installation and configuration of a range of smart home systems, including smart lighting, security systems, thermostats and more.

13. What steps do you take to ensure minimal disruption during on-site work?

Our team ensures they work efficiently and tidily, planning their tasks to minimise downtime and disturbance to your home or business operations. We also clean up after our work, leaving your premises as clean as we found it.

14. What areas of my home should have smoke alarms installed?

Australian laws require that smoke alarms be installed on each level of your home, in each bedroom and in hallways connecting bedrooms to the rest of the home. Our team can assist you in planning and installing smoke alarms in compliance with these regulations.

15. Do you carry out work for both small and large-scale projects?

Absolutely. We cater to both small tasks, such as home repairs and installations and larger-scale projects including commercial and industrial electrical works.

16. What are the dangers of DIY electrical work?

DIY electrical work is highly risky and can result in severe injuries or even fatalities. It can also lead to electrical fires, equipment damages and voiding of home insurance. In Australia, it’s illegal to undertake DIY electrical work and all such tasks should be carried out by a licensed electrician.

17. Do you handle the disposal of replaced electrical components?

Yes, we do. We ensure that all replaced or discarded electrical components are disposed of responsibly in accordance with local regulations.

18. Can you help businesses comply with Occupational Health & Safety regulations?

Definitely. We help businesses comply with the latest Occupational Health & Safety standards by providing professional test and tag services. This includes robust reporting, replacements and repairs for plugs, full testing and tagging services, barcode tagging, three-phase testing and safety switch testing.
