We used Lightning Electrical on a large commercial factory project, which included a main switchboard upgrade and general power data infrastructure install across the site during a renovation and built project. Lightning electrical were price competitive and their crew professional, knowledgeable and trustworthy. Highly recommend their services and would not hesitate in using them again on future project or general maintenance.

From the time I got in touch with Maggie, Peter and their crew - their communication and eye for detail was second to none. Having used other service providers in the past and being a business owner myself what impressed me was their clear lines of communication and the fact that they delivered what they said they could with no fuss. I will definitely use these folks again. Thanks Peter and crew

Super happy with the process and the end result. From the outset, it was great to get the creative input from Pete who understood how to embrace the unique features of our bedroom. We also really valued his communication skills, technical expertise and ability to execute. Place left clean and tidy too. Looking forward to working with Pete again for the next room!

Completely satisfied with the work done by Peter and his team. Tasman was on the job the whole day replacing our old GU10 LED lights with better LEDs, adding additional lights to other rooms, smoke detector install and replace external power points with weatherproof models. Definitely recommend their services

Circuit Breakers vs. Ceramic Fuses vs. Porcelain Fuses
There are two types of fuses that are commonly used in electrical switchboards; ceramic and porcelain. Ceramic fuses are made of a glass-like material that is designed to withstand high temperatures. Porcelain fuses are made of a more brittle material and can be more susceptible to breakage.
Porcelain fuses are typically used in older style switchboards as they were the only type of fuse available when these switchboards were installed. Ceramic fuses offer a higher level of protection and are a comparatively newer technology. If your home has an older style switchboard with porcelain or ceramic fuses, we recommend getting a switchboard upgrade done.
Modern circuit breakers take the win as they are far more reliable. They will slightly increase your switchboard upgrade cost but are well worth the investment.
