Building a New Home

If you’re planning on building a new home, it’s best if we are involved from the beginning. Even before foundations are laid, it’s good to show us the plans and get our friendly team on site. Bringing Mister Sparky in right from the start could save you a lot of time, money, and stress down the track.

For example, if you’re planning on having a large kitchen with a bench in the middle, we’ll need make some allowances so we’re not trying to cut through concrete foundations later to lay cables.

Once the framework is up, and your house starts taking shape, one of our friendly, registered electricians will walk through with you and talk you through the job. We can point out where the electrical sockets and lights will go, to help you visualise what your home will look like. It’s important you’re completely happy, and that we’re both on the same page.

At Mister Sparky, we want to make building your new home as hassle free as possible. If you want to make any additions or changes, we’re flexible and happy to help accommodate your needs. It’s much easier to add extra power points or move a light fitting before Mister Sparky starts wiring your future home.

If you want to further customise your home with light fittings, electrical switches, and power points, Mister Sparky are happy to help you create a unique design. Home lighting has a real effect on the tone and feel of a room. Done right, lighting can make living rooms feel warmer, and bedrooms more relaxing. Task lighting can be functional for work areas, like in the kitchen, bathroom or garage where it’s important to see clearly.

Ambient lighting can aid relaxing areas like bedrooms, media rooms and lounges, and even outdoor areas around your pool or spa.

Feature lighting can play an important role in interior design, highlighting aspects in and around your home, or emphasising open spaces.

The team at Mister Sparky have extensive experience designing and installing customised lighting features in homes across Christchurch. To achieve the right tone, style, and feel throughout your entire home, make sure you involve Mister Sparky in the planning stages of your new home build.
We can access and install a wide range of products to help you achieve the right lighting design and look for your home.

Energy Efficiency

Electricity prices are on the rise and showing no signs of slowing, which means keeping warm in Christchurch can be expensive, especially in the middle of winter. Mister Sparky can provide solutions to help lower your energy usage and reduce your power bills.

An energy efficient solution might be slightly more expensive up front, but energy savings over time can be significant. By using less energy, you’ll also be reducing your carbon footprint and doing your bit for the environment.

For example, regular filament light bulbs burn for about 3000 hours, and blow frequently before those hours are up. Mister Sparky frequently install Switch Sustainable LED lighting when retrofitting older lighting fittings. In comparison, Switch lights will burn bright for up to 60,000 hours, with energy savings of 80% per lightbulb. The fittings are also sealed to keep heat in your home, and insulation can be placed directly overtop to further increase the energy saving benefits.

As power costs rise, the usage and power consumption of different products or appliances should be weighed up too. What might be the cheapest option to install at the time, might not be the cheapest in ongoing energy and maintenance costs.

If you’d like a more energy efficient solution for your home, whether you’re building, renovating, or getting repairs, contact Mister Sparky today.
