The Power of Energy-Efficient Electrical Upgrades: A Guide for Homeowners

February 15, 2024

We might think of electricians as people we simply need to call when something isn’t working and we need it fixed. That’s fair enough; a lot of our work consists of repairs.

However, you might actually want to give us a call if you’re interested in saving money on power bills and reducing your carbon footprint.

How, you ask? There are plenty of upgrades you can make to your home’s electrical system that increase its energy-efficiency and result in massive cost savings on your power bills.

Let’s discuss the power of energy-efficient electrical upgrades, brought to you by the legends at Spectra Electrical.

Solar power installation

Solar power is, of course, right at the top of the list. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for 20 years, you’ll know that solar power has the ability to save you a huge chunk of change on power bills. In Australia, installing solar panels can save you around $1000 per year on power, if not more. With the average cost of solar installation sitting at less than $4000 according to, this means your solar panels could pay for itself in potentially just 4 years’ time!

Spectra Electrical have over 20 years of experience in installing solar power systems for homes and businesses. This is an electrical upgrade which is sure to make your home more energy-efficient and add value to your home.

Electrical panel upgrades

Old electrical panels simply aren’t as efficient as modern ones. Not only are modern circuit breakers more convenient and reliable than old ones, they can also distribute power more efficiently. If your panel is on the older side, Spectra Electrical can replace it with a modern, energy-efficient panel.

Upgrading old wiring

Electrical wiring lasts a long time, but it doesn’t last forever. Not only is it a safety hazard to keep using old, outdated wiring, it’s also a good way to suck up more electricity than you need to.

Wiring deteriorates over time, and becomes less energy efficient. New wiring can save you on your power bills and create a safer home, too.

Switching to LED light systems

Switching your entire house to LED light systems is an energy-efficient electrical upgrade that not only saves you on power bills, but makes your home look great too. Spectra Electrical can conduct a full-scale LED light conversion, transforming your home entirely.

Smart home automation

And finally, smart home automation! By automatically timing your lights and appliances to turn off at certain times, you can save significant amounts of power, and gain the control of switching off the power using your smartphone.
