What does an Electrician do and what can an Electrician do for you?
Electricians are responsible for installing, maintaining and repairing all of the power and electrical systems within our homes, businesses and factories. They are required to know how to correctly install and maintain all the wiring and control equipment to a high standard of safety requirements to ensure electricity flows to its intended target efficiently and most importantly safely. Maynard Electricians is one of the most experienced Electricians North Brisbane, where the company is located, but also servicing Brisbane South side and Ipswich, Logan and Toowoomba areas.
You may find some electricians focus on working in the construction industry while others concentrate mostly on repair and maintenance work. There are others that are happy to provide their services and expert knowledge of this industry across the board and cover all aspects of electrical work.
All the electricians working in North Brisbane or indeed within the state of Queensland must follow state procedures and be licensed to work there legally. You will find that registered electricians within Queensland hold an electrical work licence that has been issued within the state.
In new or unfamiliar buildings the electrician usually begins by looking at the blueprints, if they are available, to determine the location of existing electrical systems as well as those supplied by other service providers. They need to know where existing circuits are located and to determine where they will be installing new systems in the most efficient and safest locations.
When performing maintenance tasks electricians are trained to replace or repair faulty or aged equipment as quickly as possible to minimize any inconvenience. This may be simply replacing circuit breakers, fuses, switches, wires or other electrical components. Industrial sites require electricians to conduct periodic inspections to ensure equipment is working efficiently and correct potential problems, when possible, before they occur.
Electrical maintenance work in the home
Residential properties that require occasional maintenance work could cover several tasks. If you have an old property you may require your home to be rewired. Old fuse boxes may need updating to be replaced by circuit breakers or having new electrical equipment installed may require additional circuit breakers to be installed. You may require new lighting systems, ceiling fans or an air conditioning system to be installed.

Electrical maintenance work in commercial buildings
Electrical maintenance work in commercial buildings is generally more intense and complex. Electricians offering their services here may be required to repair items such as motors, generators, transformers as well as machine tools or even industrial robots. Some aspects of this type of work may require additional specialist knowledge.
Keeping Updated with New Technology
Electricians spend years learning their trade either going to vocational college or through an apprenticeship scheme where they go to college one day each week while learning on site alongside a qualified electrician. Then once they are initially qualified then electricians have to serve time in their job before they are experienced enough to be considered to be fully qualified. At Maynard Electrical you can be assured to only have fully licensed and experienced electricians on the job.
Once an electrician has the experience and is regulated to work on his (or her) own then they cannot stop learning and think they know everything. Technology is constantly changing and even fully qualified electricians regularly have to attend training sessions or seminars to learn about or just to keep up to date with these changes.
These changes for example are how to install an ever increasing demand for high tech security systems both for the workplace and to protect you and your family from intrusion into your home while you sleep soundly at night. Other aspects of the industry that electricians need to be aware of and to keep up with are any local or national regulations that may change periodically. An example of this are the smoke alarm regulations that have recently changed in Queensland.

Tools of the Electrician’s Trade
Electricians are required to know how to use a number of tools when working, some of these tools are specifically created for the role of an electrician while others are general small tools you may yourself have in your toolbox.
A conduit bender is used to bend pieces of electrical conduit into the angle that is required. Conduit benders can be hand, electrical and hydraulically operated. Non-contact voltage testers are used as they imply for checking the voltage running through a particular cable.
Electrician’s will have several different types of pliers to do their job, these include lineman’s pliers, a pair of heavy duty pliers that are generally used in cutting, bending, crimping and pulling wire. Diagonal pliers, these are also called dikes or side cutters and contain cutting blades to use on wires with smaller gauges. They can also be used as a gripping tool and to remove unwanted nails or staples. Needle nosed pliers have a long tapered gripping nose, they can be of varying sizes with and without cutters and generally used for intricate tasks that require accuracy and a little finesse in electrical wiring. Wire strippers also come in various designs and sizes to remove the insulating wire while leaving the conductor wire intact.
There are several types of cable cutters available for electrician’s including leveraged pliers to use on larger cables and armoured cutters for use on metal clad cable.
A multimeter is a multi-function instrument to measure voltage levels, resistance and current. They are available as analog and digital display and an important instrument in electrical work. Fish tape is also known as cord or rope and is used to help manipulate cables through cavities. The tool is pushed through the confined spaces. Cables are then attached and pulled through an otherwise inaccessible space. An electrician will also have several other devices to test the safety and functionality of cables as well as tools such as screwdrivers, chisels, hammers, drills and saws.
