Need an Electrician Near Me For My Home Office Set Up!

More people are working from home and looking for an “Electrician Near Me” to help with their home office setup.

Multivolt Services is near you and can help with all your home office electrical requirements!
We have seen a significant increase in two electrical work areas related to home office comfort and functionality! These are data cabling requests and ceiling fan installation requests.
Having a home office requires steady internet connectivity and a comfortable environment.


Let’s look at the cabling requirements that your Local electrician can do.

We’ve all had to endure poor Wi-Fi networks that are slow to load or have frequent dropouts, whether at home or work.
Many people are now working from home. As a result, they rely upon Zoom or Teams to be connected with their work colleagues and clients. When you moved into your home, you did not plan to do more work from home.

Your local electrician can help you set up your network for your home or business. 

Several factors can cause problems with your home or workplace network. Some can be fixed relatively easily with the right technical know-how, while others require some in-depth planning from the initial setup.

Some common causes of Wi-Fi problems are:

  • Hardware that is not suitable. 
  • Is your modem router enough for what you need?
  • Are the access points in the right location, and is your cabling up to scratch?

These are the simple reasons your network is not performing as well as it should, and these can be easily fixed.
The bigger picture reasons can relate to the actual building’s structure. Multi storeys, wall placement and internal structures can all interrupt the internet signal.

If you plan on moving into a new workspace, getting us to do an initial assessment of the building can give you the needed information as part of your business setup costings. There is nothing worse than unexpected electrical work being required due to your workplace needing a new network set up. 
We can help you choose the correct location to set up office space and install the Access point locations in the best positions.

Home Office Cooling Options

Should you choose a split system air conditioner or a ceiling fan?

Surprisingly not everyone wants an air conditioner installation in their home office.
In the bayside areas of Brisbane such as Wynnum, many homeowners like to have airflow to catch the sea breeze, and a ceiling fan is a perfect way to keep the fresh air moving in a home office. Or they already have air con in other parts of the home and find a new split system install too much for one room.
With a ceiling fan installed, it does help to circulate already cooled air through a room.
Ceiling fans are an excellent energy-efficient cooling option for indoor use in your home and home office.
The variety is vast, so we have compiled some pointers to assist you in selecting the best ceiling fan for your specific requirements.

Choose a quiet fan for your home office to avoid excessive noise disruption. 

Take into account the size of the room and the height and pitch of the ceiling. Is the room large or unusually shaped? 
Will two ceiling fans be more effective than one in evenly distributing cooling throughout the room? 
The majority of fans are strategically placed in the centre of the room to allow for constant/consistent airflow, but if your room is large, two or more fans may be a viable option.
Before purchasing a fan, consider the ceiling height, ceiling pitch (flat or angled), and how the fan can be mounted if variations from the standard 2.4m flat ceiling occur. 
For high or cathedral ceilings, extension rods ensure the fan’s optimal height (2.1m) to cool the room.

Installation of Ceiling Fans

Do you need a light and fan combination? If your new fan interferes with existing light fixtures, it may cause a strobe lighting effect in the room, which is not ideal. 
Fans that obstruct a light fitting or downlight could be replaced with a fan-light combination to avoid this problem.

Design of the home office

With so many ceiling fan style options available, you will be able to match your new fan to the room decor. For example, if the home office has a modern décor, you may prefer a contemporary chrome fan; however, you may choose a fan with traditional timber or rattan blade material if you have a classic style office.

Compare the performance of ceiling fan blades.

How much cooling is required in the room? 
The number or size of the blades influences how much air the fan moves. 
If your room gets particularly hot, select a blade pitch (angle) on the higher end of the scale. 
The pitch of the blades varies between 8 and 15 degrees.

Fans with remote control

Controlling your fan’s action and turning on and off the light with remote control from anywhere in the room can be a convenient extra option. 
Choosing remote control ceiling fans has the added benefit of reducing the amount of wiring and wall switches required.

Is an electrician required to install a ceiling fan?

Yes. In Australia, all electrical work, including ceiling fans, must be performed by a licensed electrician. 
Furthermore, most product warranties will only cover ceiling fans installed by a professional electrician. 
An electrician will ensure that the fan is installed safely and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, and they will answer any questions you have about using the fan.

What is the cost of installing a ceiling fan?

The ceiling fan installation cost will vary depending on the job’s complexity. 
Save money on installation by having more than one ceiling fan installed during your electrician’s visit.
