Preparing for an electrical consultation

Preparing for an electrical consultation

Whether you need electrical design layout advice for your new home, or perhaps just some advice regarding the air conditioning system best suited to your home or workplace –  consulting a qualified professional is a must. But where – and how – do you start? Well, having a basic vision of what you want is a must. Once you understand that, seek out the services of an experienced, Vaccaro Group electrical design consultant to help get you started.

Have a vision of what you want

Understanding your electrical plans can help put things in motion. If you’re designing your new house, when it comes to planning your electrical points, furniture placement is really important. Do you want a power point closer to your bedside table? Think about the position of all furniture, internet router, and any other appliances within each room of the home. Alternatively, if you’re an entertainer, think about outdoor areas and what their main function will be. Allowing sockets for the outdoor fridge and sound systems can make a huge difference to improving your living amenity.

Going over the consultation checklist

Once you have an idea of what you want, get in touch with a Vaccaro qualified consultant, who will provide you with a checklist. This checklist can help prepare you for your first visit to our showroom. Even if you’re still not 100% sure on what you need, don’t worry. Because at Vaccaro we use the very latest Clipsal Clipspec design software to help you design your electrical layout. Our checklist help fill in the blanks and give you a clearer picture of everything you will need to think about. The checklist will ask you to:

  • Obtain a copy of your standard electrical plan and inclusions list. Your builder should be able to help, if not, refer to your building contract
  • Visit the builder’s display home to see what’s on display. This can provide inspiration for how your new home setup might look, which may affect lighting and how you position furniture
  • Be aware of any possible design changes you may be considering, and their potential impact
  • Contact your internet, telephone, and pay TV service provider to find out about cable requirements to your area, for example pay TV can be either an underground connection or via satellite. Additionally, your internet connection may be optical fibre (NBN/Opticom or Telstra Velocity), Telstra Line or Optus Cable.

Nothing beats planning ahead to save time and money for all your electrical jobs. Whether you’re building a new home, or you require an air conditioning unit installed to beat the heat, Vaccaro’s experienced electrical design consultants and qualified  technicians can take care of all your installation and service needs.

Vaccaro was the original electrical installer of my home. Their workmanship and materials were of excellent quality. They were extremely helpful, efficient and friendly whenever I asked for help. My special regards to Cameron for responding to my after-sales requests promptly and Robert for helping me resolve some technical issues and enhancing my understanding of the wiring system design.

Vaccaro was also the original air-conditioning installer of my home. Sonya and her teams were very polite and attentive and provided speedy responses to servicing requests. The technicians are well trained and equipped and as a result the refrigerant leak was fixed in no time. They also made good the controls and carried out air balancing.


I was a little nervous doing my electrical appointment on my own as my partner was unavailable. Janae (Electrical Design Consultant) was friendly, helpful and had a clear understanding of everything, making the electrical appointment stress-free. Janae was quick with responding to any enquiries or emails. I was very happy with her service & would highly recommend.


Richard was very reliable, very responsive, and very polite. He also took special care to make sure I was happy with the service provided. Thank you very much, highly recommended.

Happy to give a big thumbs up and thank you to Richard in the sales team and the guys who replaced our 22 year old full ducted system in our double storey home, with a new Daikin 20kw system. Only installed one day and already appreciate how quiet the unit is. Despite the rain they were through the job in a few hours and were completely professional, very happy to recommend this company.


Thank you, Richard, Jimmy, and the rest of the Vaccaro team, for providing such timely and professional service, installing a split air conditioning system in my home today. Jimmy’s level of awareness to be respectful of the peace and cleanliness of the property during the installation was greatly appreciated. My apartment feels lovely and toasty – I may never leave!
