Installation, Cleaning & Decommissioning

More Info

Installation & Removal

Airconditioning, especially here in the Far North, is a luxury few of us can live without during the summer months.

As long-time locals and air-con enthusiasts, the team at Jaques Electrical are specialists in the installation of split-system airconditioning units.

We work with all brands and can advise on a size and style of unit to suit your needs. Our team is also qualified to replace old or faulty split systems, as well as remove systems no longer in use.


It certainly pays to stay up to date with maintenance and cleaning of our split-system airconditioners to ensure ongoing efficiency year after year.

At Jaques Electrical, we offer a chemical cleaning service to keep your split system airconditioners on track year-round.

The Jaques Electrical team suggests annual cleaning of split-system airconditioners to maximise efficiency and extend your system’s lifespan.

This complex process involves removing accumulated dust and grime from inside the unit, concentrating on fins, barrel fans, filters and covers. 

Cleaning agents used are environmentally friendly, purpose designed sprays that are both biodegradable and food safe. 

The comprehensive clean also includes an anti-microbial treatment for added protection.

Installations & Upgrades

More Info

It’s not hard to know when it’s time to upgrade your switchboard. It could be that you’re experiencing an increase in flickering lights or circuit breakers tripping when appliances are used.

Perhaps you’re experiencing constantly blown fuses, electric shocks or notice appliance plugs heating up at the wall.

With an ever-increasing demand on household and commercial power, it’s easy to understand why it’s important to have your switchboard maintained to ensure ongoing safety and efficiency.

In some cases, upgrades will need to be made to get your switchboard back on track.

At Jaques Electrical, we stay up to date on the latest Australian Wiring Standards and are experienced in switchboard design, installation, upgrades, maintenance, and repairs.

Give our friendly team a call if you think your switchboard could use an overhaul, or for advice on how your renovation or refurbishment will impact your switchboard needs.

Safety Switches

Compulsory in all New Australian Homes

More Info

For three decades safety switches have been compulsory in all new Australian homes.

These life-saving devices work in a fraction of a second to prevent electrocution when a problem occurs and have saved countless lives since their introduction.

For older homes, safety switches must be installed whenever changes are made to the existing electrical layout, but it makes sense to protect yourself and your family long before any modifications are required.

The team at Jaques Electrical can assess your existing switchboard to ensure every circuit is protected by a safety switch, as well as test, replace and install new safety switches as required.

Changeover Switches

For Peace of Mind

More Info

Available in both manual and automatic formats, changeover switches for generators offer businesses and homeowners peace of mind in a power outage.

These clever devices transfer a building’s power supply from mains to a back-up generator with the simple flick of a switch.

Automatic changeover switches do all the heavy lifting and kick in as soon as mains power is lost, no intervention required.

Manual changeover switches are a more affordable option than automatic changeover switches but require someone to be present to manually redivert the power source to a back-up generator at the switch.

Give our knowledgeable team a call to find out which option is best suited to your home or business.

Ceiling Fan


More Info

Ceiling fans are an essential part of life here in the tropics and they come in a wide variety of designs.

The team at Jaques Electrical are your local specialists in ceiling fan repairs and installations and have installed hundreds of fans in homes and businesses throughout the region.

With so much to consider when choosing a ceiling fan, it pays to have trusted electricians like the expert team at Jaques Electrical to help you choose an option that suits your needs, style and budget.

Smoke Alarm

Installation & Testing

More Info

There have been ongoing changes to legislation around Smoke Alarms in recent years.

The latest changes affecting landlords and anyone looking to sell their home requires all smoke alarms to be photoelectric smoke alarms (AS 3786-2014), effective as of January 2022.

Photoelectric smoke alarms respond much faster to smoke produced by smouldering fires than pre-existing ionization smoke alarms.

For those not looking to sell anytime soon, these changes come into effect as of January 2027.

Other requirements state that a smoke alarm must:

  • Not contain an ionisation sensor.
  • Be less than 10 years old.
  • Operate when tested.
  • Be interconnected with every other smoke alarm in the dwelling so all activate together.
  • Be installed on each storey of the home.
  • Be installed in each bedroom.
  • Be installed in hallways which connect bedrooms and the rest of the dwelling or, if there is no hallway, between the bedrooms and other parts of the storey.
  • Be installed in the most likely path of travel to exit the dwelling where there are no bedrooms on a storey.
  • Be hardwired or powered by a non-removable 10-year battery, or a combination of both.

To ensure your smoke alarms meet Australian Standards there are certain guidelines your electrician must follow, such as:

  • Smoke alarms, where possible, must be ceiling mounted.
  • Smoke alarms must not be within 30cm of a light fitting or the corner of a ceiling and wall.
  • Smoke alarms must not be within 40cm of an air-conditioning vent or the outer edges of a ceiling fan.
