We want to work with you to find the right fit for your electrical needs, big or small. Whether you want that new downlight installed, or you want to rewire your whole house, we're here to make that happen.
Wiring is in every room of your home and is used every day, but have you ever thought about the safety of the cabling in your home?
You interact with it every time you switch on a light, every time you use a power outlet and every time you turn on an appliance. So it is vital to make sure that the cabling in your home is in good condition and meets current electrical standards.
If your home is over 30 years old it may have lead sheathed cables or old single-insulated cotton/rubber cabling (which are now no longer compliant). The insulation on these types of cable has significantly deteriorated since its installation, and any disturbance could expose live wires. This creates a major fire hazard, as well as a risk of electric shock.
Old, unsafe wiring in older homes requires rewiring with Modern TPS Cabling (Thermoplastic Sheath), which provides long-lasting, reliable insulation of cabling throughout your house to prevent fires and electrical shock hazards. If your home does not have earth wiring to the light fittings, this can be installed at the same time as the rewire to provide protection from electric shock.
Any DIY electrical modifications that have been made on the house also present a risk of fire or electric shock. The main safety issues related to the presence of unlicensed electrical wiring include the use of the wrong cabling, undersized cabling, or exposed live components.
If your home has cabling that doesn’t meet current electrical safety standards, or if your home was built before 1980 and you’re not sure which type of cable is in your home, give your local trusted electricians, Kenner Electrics, a call to book an inspection.
Electrical Distributors can issue a defect notice to homes in the event of a major electrical fault caused by unsafe wiring. Under the defect notice you’re either given a short window of time to rectify the fault (which usually requires having your home rewired) before they shut off the power to your house or they may simply shut off power if they deem the house too unsafe.
If you’re aware of old or deteriorated wiring in your home, why not have it rewired on your own terms without the threat or urgency of disconnection?

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.
Great customer service throughout - from the time of booking to job completion. Punctual, courteous and professional... went above and beyond to help and provided useful advice. Truly outstanding service and attitude.
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".
