Hi there,

 

I'm looking to get our switchboard replaced/upgraded. 

 

 

 

We need to:

 

- Add RCDs

 

- Replace ceramic fuses with breakers

 

- Audit current circuit sizing/layout, label all components etc and document what's there

 

 

 

We'd like to

 

- Potentially add more power sockets - PDL600

 

 

 

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good electrician in Wellington that can do this work? 

 

I've taken a look at electrical reviews from various sites, including: Builderscrack, NoCowboys & Trade Me. I have a few people I can contact for quotes as a result. It seems like a lot of the electricians aren't 'Master Electricians' or don't advertise it - is that right?

 

If anyone has had an upgrade done, I would be very interested to see some pics as well. My before photo is below-

 

Cheers

My brother in law lives in Tawa. I'll contact him to see if he'd be able to have a look at your job.

This job requires a registered electrician.

 

A Master Electrician is not required, a Master Electrician belongs to an association outside of the electrical registration board. ( Basically a club ) like Master Builders.

 

Just make sure the electrician you use has a current practicing licence and issues a certificate of compliance at completion of the job.
