Heat Pumps

For safe and affordable heat pump installation and maintenance, we call on a network of professionals within the Bay of Plenty to get the job done – saving you time and hassle.

Improving Safety with Residual Current Devices (RCDs)

A Residual Current Device (RCD) is a kind of circuit-breaker that detects many situations where electricity is going someplace it shouldn’t, such as into a person. RCDs are essential safety devices. If it detects a fault, an RCD will immediately disconnect the electricity to the socket or switch before much damage can be done.

In 2003, new regulations called for greater safety measures in residential buildings and facilities, and since then all new home builds are legally required to include RCD protection. Any circuits originating at the switchboard supplying power points must have residual current device (RCD) protection.

The problem is that a huge number of properties were built before these regulations were introduced, leaving families at risk without RCD protection. We can’t stress this enough: RCDs save lives. Affordable Electrical can make sure that RCD protection is safely added to all your circuits.

Your home will be left safer than ever in the hands of the qualified and experienced Affordable Electrical team. Make an enquiry today.


The switchboard of your house is otherwise known as the fuse box. It controls all the electricity in your house, and is responsible for safely connecting your home to the power lines on the street. Needless to say, an old, run-down switchboard without the latest RCDs, circuit breakers, AFDDs and surge protectors can be a real risk to your family.

Many homes still have switchboards from more than half a century ago. Just think of how far safety and technology has come in that time. If you think your switchboard hasn’t been professionally looked at since the 1900’s, give Affordable Electrical a call today.

House Wiring and Rewiring

Bad wiring can cause electrocution and fire. Signs of old and deteriorated wiring include intermittent (occasional) power outages, flickering lights, dodgy sockets and switches, hot outlets and plugs, and appliances acting strangely.

Older wiring materials easily deteriorate, exposing the copper beneath and causing shorts or fires. Don’t let this happen! Ask Affordable Electrical to investigate the type of wiring material in your home and replace it if necessary. Modern materials are more efficient and safer than older rubber or conduit wiring. You’ll be glad you upgraded.

Rather than attempt a dangerous do-it-yourself job, which can get messy, contact Affordable Electrical in Tauranga. Our qualified electricians can promptly and expertly install new wiring in your new home build or replace old wiring in your existing home. 

Safer Plugs in High-Risk Areas

Transform your kitchen and bathroom spaces into user-friendly ones with additional plugs and switches. New regulations now allow for plugs in wet areas like bathrooms, or near water and heat sources such as in kitchens.

You can now position your frequently used appliances right where you need them most.
