How Can Kenner Electrics Help?

Whether you need more power outlets for outdoor speakers, or increased lighting to make your home secure, our fully licensed electricians are here to help you make the most of your outdoor spaces.

When Do External Fittings Need Replacement?

  • Degraded – electrical fittings and switchgear can degrade over time, especially if exposed to sunlight.
  • Cracked – cracked fittings and switchgear are susceptible to water entry, which may cause short circuits. Cracking may also indicate that the structural integrity of the fitting is compromised, or that live parts may be exposed.
  • Damaged – all sorts of things can damage electrical fittings or switches, such as stray balls, removalists or rodents/pests.

Weatherproof Outdoor Power Outlet

Correct IP Rating for the Location

IP ratings refer to ‘ingress protection’, or the ability of a fitting to withstand entry of water and dust. These types of fittings are typically used in wet areas or outdoors.

If a non IP rated fitting is used in an external position, this increases the chance of moisture or water entering the fitting. This causes nuisance tripping of circuit breakers.

At Kenner Electrics, we supply quality products that are best suited for the environment in which they are installed.

Conduit Protection

Cables require proper protection when they are exposed to sunlight or installed in areas where they are likely to be disturbed. Protection can be provided by installing the cables inside walls, or through conduit.

Some common problems with conduit protection (or lack of) include;

  • No cable protection – if cables are exposed in accessible areas, there is a risk of damage.
  • Conduit not UV rated – if the cable is installed in conduit outside, it must be UV rated conduit otherwise the conduit will deteriorate over time and cease providing adequate protection
  • Conduit not waterproof – if the cable is installed in conduit outside, it must be waterproof to prevent water from entering and tripping the circuit
  • Conduit is damaged – this may be an indicator that the cables inside the conduit are also damaged
Outdoor power outlets and plugs must be a weatherproof outlet to avoid water from entering the fitting

The service was incredible. It was not just the workmanship but the after service support and follow up that made the real difference. Thanks to the team from the bottom of my heart for making all our electrical problems go away and so efficiently as well.

Had an issue with our smoke detectors and the heat lights in the bathroom. After chatting online with their customer service, an electrician was sent out to our home within a couple of hours and fix has been wonderful so far. They were also great with other inquiries for other installations. Would not hesitate to call on Kenner Electrics again.

Have used Kenner Electrics 3 times in recent months. Very happy with their quick, reliable and friendly service. Will definitely use them again. In fact I now refer to them as "our electricians".
