Combined 70 years of industry experience

Newtown occupants of residential and commercial properties have enjoyed support from the team at Totally Amped for more than fifteen years.

Founder and Director Sean Hopgood has purposely assembled a team that can carry out the most exhaustive range of electric works.

After completing his electrician’s apprenticeship, Sean spent many years working in the industry, honing his craft, and developing experience across varied projects. Eventually he decided to take the leap and set up a different sort of electrician service.

Totally Amped was born out of Sean’s vision of company that would focus on a number of areas he felt were lacking in the offerings of existing local providers. Clear-cut advice, quality service and reliability became the touchstones of his new organisations.

FAQs

Have a question that hasn't been answered yet? Search through our common FAQs below, and if you still can't find what you need, feel free to reach out to us directly and one of our friendly team members will gladly help answer your question! 

Why would you need an electrical check?

While any intermittent or persistent electrical glitch needs to be investigated to minimise impact on the day-to-day operations of your property, it is also important to ensure your electrics are checked periodically to keep everything running safely and at optimum capacity. This is particularly important if you have an older property, or if you have recently purchased a new property. By not having your electrics professionally checked, you risk any problems escalating. For households this could mean electrocution or fire in a worst-case scenario, while for businesses this can lead to unnecessary downtime, reduced productivity, and a host of other issues if you’re found not to have complied with safety regulations.

 

What are the most dangerous electrical safety hazards?

Old and deteriorating wiring, in particular VIR cable, can lead to all sorts of problems. There are also risks associated with poorly installed or damaged equipment, and old switchboards that don’t have earth leakage protection. Warning signs to look out for include the tripping of your circuit or even complete circuit failure. If these issues are not dealt with quickly and effectively, the vital daily operations of your property will be impacted and, most worryingly of all, you’ll be putting occupants at risk.

How much does it cost to upgrade your switchboard?

If your switchboard is old or faulty, now is the time to consider an electrical switchboard upgrade. This can mean the difference between a safe and fully-functioning property, and a catastrophe that risks the wellbeing of occupants and contents. If your current switchboard only has overload protection for fuses and circuit breakers and no earth leakage protection (or safety switch), there is serious potential for any fault to escalate to the point where it causes fire or electrocution. Earth leakage protection should therefore be installed, due to its ability to automatically and thoroughly detect a much broader range of faults, and respond accordingly. The cost of such an upgrade varies depending on the specific scenario. However, for a domestic switchboard the price tag can typically range from $800 to $1,500.

Should I install security cameras and CCTV?

For many people, a home security system is a worthwhile investment. For businesses, it can be even more crucial to protect expensive equipment. An initial expenditure could end up saving you the costs and inconvenience associated with break-ins and theft. Security cameras provide a deterrent to potential thieves and vandals, while simultaneously capturing footage that can help resolve security breaches. And the great news is this kind of technology has become increasingly easy-to-use and affordable in recent times, and can easily ramped up or down to meet your distinct needs and budget.

Why should I choose LED lighting?

LED lights are significantly more efficient than the alternative, traditional lighting options including fluorescent and incandescent lights, while also offering increased longevity. As a result, they cost less to run and maintain, and use less energy meaning they are a great option for the environmentally-conscious.

Can I do any electrical work myself?

The short answer is no, unless you are fully trained and licensed. A botched job carried out by inexperienced hands can not only result in malfunctioning electrics, but also injury and even death. If you’re considering this as an option to save money, we’d ask you to consider what price do you would put on your life! Aside from this, your work will not be insured, so if disaster strikes you will most probably end up being liable for any financial or legal ramifications. In addition, you’ll need to consider the potential hazards you might create for the next person who needs to deal with your property’s electrics.

How much is a call out charge for an electrician?

This can vary depending on the reason for the call out, and the nature of the issue that needs to be addressed. The best approach is to call your electrician and discuss your circumstances, so they can factor in what they will need to provide during the call out, and the associated costs. Remember that while you’ll always be able to find a cheaper electrician, you also need to consider factors including experience, professionalism, reliability and availability, as well as licenses and insurance.

How disruptive is rewiring a house?

The size and style of the property and what exactly is involved with the job will determine how disruptive a rewiring project is. Often, residents are able to remain in their properties while a rewiring job takes place, which typically takes somewhere in the region of three days. This can be achieved by approaching the job in appropriate sections, working on different areas of the property at different times. At Totally Amped we are committed to approaching each project with the aim of keeping disruption to a minimum.
