Elanoras best fault finding, lighting installation and renovations electricians

Trusted electrical services Elanora

We offer a huge range of services, if you have electrical questions we are just a phone call away.


We believe that your home should be an extension of your personality. You spent time personalising your space, so why settle for generic power points and light switches. At T-Rex Elec we offer a wide range of switches and power points, from matte black to ones with sustainable timber trim.


Need an extra switch for that outdoor light you always leave on? Perhaps you want to connect all your outdoor lighting to a single switch so you can illuminate the entire perimeter of your property from beside your bed if you hear someone outside in the middle of the night. At T-Rex Elec we can do all of this for you! We keep up with the latest trends in designer switches to help refresh the look of your home and can install automated Bluetooth and Wi-Fi controls so you can turn your lights on from your phone!

ceiling fans

Ceiling fans are a great option for cooling your home while keeping costs down. Ceiling fans that spin the same, slow speed no matter what setting the wall control is on can be infuriating during the hot summers we get here on the Cold Coast. But fear not, T-Rex Elec can supply and install replacement fans in a flash. Do you have a room in your home that needs a fan? Get in touch with us to talk about your options for installing a fan and beat the heat!

Power faults and Outages

Do you have issues with your power tripping every time it rains or you turn on a particular switch or appliance? Our Elanora electricians have developed a handy video on our HOME PAGE that helps our customers safely determine if household electrical outages are due to simple reasons – like a faulty appliance, or a more complex issue that we need to attend and fault find.

LED DOwnlight Installation

Do you want to reduce the cost of running the lights in your home? Or perhaps you want to remove old halogen downlights to reduce the risk of fire in your ceiling space? T-Rex Elec are the smartest choice when it comes to installing LED lighting in Elanora homes. We offer a range of modern, energy efficient, LED lighting that will suit your style and add a modern touch to your place.

Powerpoint Installation

Do you have extension leads running all over your home or office? Are you sick and tired of unsightly cables overcrowding your power points & unplugging phone chargers to use your appliances? Your home or office in Elanora will look neater and be safer when you call T-Rex Elec to quickly and safely install a new power point today. We even have USB power points so you never need to look at a bulky phone charger again!

Safety Switch Installation

Tragically, each year in Australia around 15 people are killed by electricity in incidents that could have been prevented if a safety switch was fitted. Most homes only have a safety switch on the power circuits. Hammering a nail into the wall or using an appliance, leaning on a faulty hot water system, touching an air-conditioner, cooktop or oven can turn deadly in a heart beat. You need a safety switch on every circuit on your home to provide the maximum protection. Don’t let a tragedy happen in your home or place of work. Call T-Rex Elec today and we can check you place. We can even look over Facetime or Zoom.

Smoke Alarms

By January 1 2022, it will be mandated that all homes sold or leased in Queensland have photoelectric smoke alarms installed. When was the last time you had an electrician test your smoke alarms? If your smoke alarms are not functioning correctly and you have a fire in your home those alarms are just a decoration on the ceiling. Do you know what type of smoke alarms you have in your home? Old ionisation smoke alarms are slow to react and by relying on them you run the risk that you and your loved ones will not have enough time to escape. Call T-Rex Elec today and we can ensure that your home is compliant and provides the maximum level of safety to you and your loved ones.

Switchboard Upgrades

Upgrading your switchboard is the easiest way to stop minor electrical accidents from becoming a disaster! Old, faulty electrical switchboards will fail to keep your family safe from fire or electrical accidents - and it's one of the first things we check when we're looking for faults - so call T-Rex Elec today for switchboard upgrades in Elanora and enjoy a safer home!.

Ceiling fans with remotes

How many times do you jump into bed only to have to get back up to turn off the fan? We can supply and install a remote to control your fan from the comfort of your bed or lounge so you will never have to endure the annoyance of “forgetful fan syndrome” again!

Sensor Lights

Unfortunately, we all hear about unsavoury individuals jumping fences, or entering unsuspecting people’s yards in all suburbs on the Gold Coast to steal their valuables. Sensor lights are a great way to deter would-be thieves and vandals from targeting your home. T-Rex Elec can install and sensors outside your home to activate your lighting and give you early warning that someone is on the prowl at your place.

Flood Lights & Garden lighting

We have the perfect climate on the Gold Coast that enables us to live an outdoor lifestyle. If you have spent time, effort and money on making your gardens and the surrounds of your home look awesome why not enjoy the view during the night-time hours when entertaining or just enjoying the peace and quiet on your patio? T-Rex Elec can install flood lighting to increase the visual appeal of your home and make your place feel like a luxurious resort during the twilight hours.

motion detected lighting

Motion detected lighting is a great way to reduce lighting costs and add convenience to your home, office or commercial space. No more fumbling in the dark for a light switch with both hands full.

Outdoor Powerpoints

Outdoor power points are one of the most requested installs we get at T-Rex Elec. When you consider the huge range of outdoor appliances and power tools that most people have in their garage it is easy to see the benefit of having an outdoor power point installed at your place. Thinking about getting a TV installed outside on your deck or patio? Maybe you have a pressure cleaner you use to wash your car with or need a bug zapper to keep the mosquitos at bay. So if you are sick of running an extension cord through your fly-screen to power your outdoor gear call us to install a new outdoor power point now!

patio lighting

The right kind of lighting can enhance the atmosphere of your patio or deck. T-Rex Elec can advise you what kind of lights would suit your place then supply and install them so all you have to do is sit back and relax.

These are signs that you need an experienced electrician to check your hot water system.

Emergency lights

Emergency lights are installed in almost every office space on the Gold Coast. They are not just ‘nice to have’ when the power goes out, they are legally required in most offices and buildings that are accessible to the public. In Queensland there are strict requirements regarding the maintenance of emergency lights and heavy fines are enforceable by both the Queensland Fire and Rescue officers and WorkSafe inspectors. T-Rex Elec can organise for an assessment of your current emergency lighting system and engage in a compliant schedule of maintenance to save you money and keep you out of court.

Exit lights

When it comes to retail spaces, cafes, restaurants and offices it is generally the responsibility of the tenant to maintain the exit lights. If you are in charge of any of these types of premises and you don’t have exit lighting that is tested every 6 months and the records to prove it, you are at risk of fines and could be leaving yourself open to litigation. Exit & emergency lights have strict requirements regarding the maintenance and heavy fines can be levied by both the Queensland Fire and Rescue officers and WorkSafe inspectors. Call T-Rex Elec now to get your workplace compliant.

Loss of Power

Often when extended periods of dry weather are followed by a significant deluge of rain, homes supplied by underground power experience a loss of supply. This is generally due to a combination of damage to the mains cable that may have happened when it was originally installed and water entering the conduit the cable sits in. The result is a blown Energex fuse and a defect notice issued by the Energex crew that attends the job. We have a great amount of experience in replacing underground mains cables and in some cases can do so without digging up your yard.

Do you keep getting poor WIFI signal in your home or office. This frustrating problem can be solved with the installation of a wireless access point. It connects directly to your router and boosts the signal inside your place.

Power Poles

Many larger properties on the Gold Coast have private power poles that bring power from the Energex network to the actual house. Poorly maintained power poles are a risk to your safety, particularly during storm season, and can be an expensive inconvenience if they are brought down in times of high winds. Replacing a power pole can be a complex job, but our Master Electricians at T-Rex Elec have extensive experience in power line maintenance and are the number one choice when it comes to power pole replacement on the Gold Coast.

acreage power

If you are living on acreage in one of the beautiful areas within the Gold Coast hinterland you need an electrical contractor that can handle the bigger jobs. At T-Rex Elec we have your acreage power needs covered.

3 phase power upgrades

As the number of appliances that are in the average Gold Coast home continues to grow, many homes are now connected to 3 phase power to satisfy the increased demand for power. A ducted air-conditioning system for a large house will typically be connected to 3 phase power. If you are considering something like this for your home or you have a shed on your property that houses 3 Phase equipment, give T-Rex Elec a call to upgrade your mains, reconfigure your switchboard to accommodate a 3 phase electricity meter and 3 phase switchgear.
