Atkins Electricians Are Here For All Your Electrical Wiring Needs
Many of Bayside’s older houses suffer from outdated electrical wiring that falls below current safety standards. Left unaddressed, this can be a serious hazard in your home, increasing the likelihood of fires and electric shocks. In addition, power fluctuations caused by outdated wiring and fuse boxes can damage electronic valuables, such as your computer.
The team at Atkins Electricians have extensive experience in residential electrical services and rewiring homes with up-to-date cabling systems that not only minimise electrical risks, but also enhance the performance and efficiency of your system.
In addition to whole-house electrical overhauls, we also carry out smaller tasks like light switch wiring upgrades and outdoor or sensor light wiring.
How do I know if my home needs rewiring?
Any housing built around Bayside before the 1960s may still have its old rubber or cotton cabling. Even plastic cabling dating from the 60s can potentially be dangerous, as it was then common to not supply an earthing cable.
There are several visible indicators that your electrical system needs to be rewired. These include:
- Metal conduits running to power sockets or lights
- Cables with black rubber exterior
- Round pin plugs
- An old, inadequate or poorly maintained fuse box
- Lights dimming at night

Rewiring a house need not be an overwhelming task – just leave it to the trusted team at Atkins Electricians. Based in the Bayside area, we rewire homes across Bayside and surrounds, including Brighton, Cheltenham, Bentleigh and Moorabbin.
