Hot water cylinder electrician

Hot Water Cylinder Installations & Repairs

Most often when a hot water cylinder isn’t producing hot water, it’s an electrical problem. In this instance, our team will replace the heating element, the thermostat, or both. If you’re unsure whether you need a plumber or an electrician – touch the pipe coming out of the top of your cylinder and if it’s still hot, we need to send you a plumber instead.

We frequently install outdoor powerpoints for spas and hot tubs, and it’s essential to get these professionally installed to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones. Additionally, we can install outdoor lighting and motion sensors, which is commonly requested at the same time. Call our team today to get a quote.

Nelson Electricians FAQs

Generally, it is the heating element and/or the thermostat that has failed.

That’s an electrician’s job. If it’s the element, it normally takes between one to two hours to drain the cylinder, replace the element, and refill the cylinder.

At the same time, the electrician will test the thermostat to make sure it’s functioning properly.

All our visits have a minimum charge of one hour – by the time our electrician has driven to your property, got his tools and parts from the van, done the job and packed up again, it’s an hour that we don’t have him available for another customer.

However, if the job is a quick one, we suggest you get him to attend to, on the same visit, any other electrical jobs you may have been saving for a while.

Yes, each of our Nelson electricians is licensed by the NZ Electrical Workers Board. We do not employ apprentices or unlicensed electricians.

LED lights give more pure, bright lumens of light. The light fittings colour can be changed for every application – e.g. warm white, cool white, and daylight white.

The LED light uses less electricity and they are more energy-efficient than Halogen globes.

They also have a very low heat-generating capacity, therefore a lower overheating fire risk.

If the wiring is old, not only is it a requirement of your insurance company but a great way of avoiding a house fire to have you home fully rewired.

Old wiring has insulation which breaks down over time.

An old fuse board is unlikely to have MCBs (Miniature circuit breakers), or RCDs (Residual current device) present, which are a feature of more modern switchboards.

Yes, it is dangerous for various reasons – the humming sound can be caused by a loose electrical connection which can cause an electrical fire, or it can be caused by an overloaded circuit or MCB (miniature circuit breaker).

If the MCB is faulty, it can also cause nuisance fuse tripping and worst-case scenario, a fire.

It sounds like the specific light circuit is overloaded and/or a faulty MCB is causing the problem.

If overloading is causing the problem, we suggest an additional light circuit be installed, splitting the light circuit and installing an extra MCB.

The ‘fault’ on a new installation is sometimes caused by poor design and planning for the electrical installation, but equally a blown light bulb can cause this.

Check if you can turn on other lights on the same circuit without tripping the fuse.
