SWITCHBOARD & WIRING UPGRADES
Do you need a safe electrical installation that is compliant and keeps working? You may or may not be aware, but your switchboard or meter panel may contain asbestos? And the house wiring might be rubber (TRS), PVC or conduit wiring that is now expired, dangerous and a fire hazard.
This can invalidate your insurance policy so don’t risk leaving these questions unresolved when we can quickly answer them and have any issues rectified in a fast and efficient way.
POWER OUTAGES & RCD PROBLEMS
Typically, overloaded circuits, faulty lights and appliances and water damage is the most common issues we find.
We also install lightning surge protection in your switchboard that could save your TV, PC and other appliances from being fried during a storm.
If you have absolutely no power, you could first check with your neighbours to determine if it is an area wide outage or phone Vector Faults on 0508 VECTOR (0508 832 867) and check with them. If only your property is affected, they can send a fault man to check your main fuse.
In the situation that it is an internal fault within your property, then we can help so phone us now.

We can issue warrant of fitness, certificate of compliance (COC and COV) or certificate of verification and assist with insurance claims and reconnections to the power network.
If you need a meter shift, a new meter connection or a check meter for a minor dwelling or unit. We can arrange everything required and talk you through the options.
FROM OUR CUSTOMERS
“We had a few small jobs to be done around our place – Changing light fittings and adding a USB charger outlet to our power point. The boys arrived right on time and had the work finished in less time than estimated. They were very professional and friendly. I will definitely be using First Light again for my future electrical jobs.” – Raymond
