Laser Electrical Ashburton

Brent and Megan Christie own and operate Laser Electrical Ashburton, under the company Christie Electrical Ltd and have also expanded to include branches in Rolleston, Geraldine and Temuka.

The original business - Christie Electrical Ltd was founded in 1980 by Les Christie who started out as an Electrical Contractor, and it was under his father's guidance that Brent completed his Electrical Apprenticeship. In 2003 the decision was made to join the Laser Electrical franchise which provided a strong national brand, buying power, access to a stronger knowledge base, technical support and systems developed specifically for our trade.

Megan and Brent strive to maintain loyal and happy customers providing affordable and reliable solutions and in doing so continue to be the ‘employer of choice’ for their team. This is underpinned by their company values of Integrity, Teamwork, Passion, Pride, and Innovation all of which have been chosen by the team themselves.

We have the capability to complete any contact - with a staff of over 40 and more than 40 vehicles well-spaced over the greater Canterbury region.

Our main office, located in East Street in Ashburton, has a lighting and heating retail showroom with a large range of lighting options as well as wood, gas and pellet fires. Our new Rolleston branch is co-owned and managed by Zane Adams, where we have an ever growing team working on projects all over Christchurch city and the surrounding areas. Simon Reardon manages the Geraldine and Temuka branches and is supported by 2IC Mike Withey from where we service a variety of residential, commercial, rural and dairy projects.

Underfloor Heating

Imagine on cold mornings stepping from your bed onto warm carpet, or picture your young children playing comfortably on heated tiles. Keep your home cosy and dry with a Laser Electrical Morrinsville installed underfloor heating system.

Underfloor heating is a luxurious, silent, safe and reliable way to provide comfortable and consistent heating throughout your home. Underfloor heating uses radiant heating instead of conventional heating which means heat energy is emitted from a warm element under the floor surface, warming people and objects in the room directly rather than heating the air. This makes it a much more efficient use of energy and therefore cost effective.

An underfloor electric radiant heating system will create a cosy and warm environment all year round under tiles, carpet or timber floors. Controlled by thermostats, underfloor heating provides clean, invisible heating that can be pre-set to ensure the floors are warm when you need it most.

Home Theatre and Audio

In today’s world, home theatre and audio systems are much more affordable than they used to be and are much more common.

The level of integration varies from home to home, depending on requirements and budgets. If you’re not particularly technical or familiar with modern technologies, it can be overwhelming and hard to know what to choose. We are here to make it easy for you.

We can provide:

  • home theatre design and wiring
  • smartphone and tablet integration
  • integrated control via home automation
  • sound amplifiers
  • a wired or wireless speaker setup for indoors and outdoors
  • HDMI and AV wiring

If you would like to know more about home theatre systems or would like to discuss the options available to you, please get in touch.

Security Alarms

A home security system offers a range of benefits such as reduced risk of break ins, automatic emergency calls, potential savings on your home insurance premiums and an alert system to inform you wherever you are.

A secure alarm system can make your home less attractive to burglars. We want to give you and your family peace of mind that your home and belongings are safe while you are out for short durations throughout the day or even when you’re off on a week long holiday.

We can help you to come up with a custom security system solution suitable for your requirements. This could include internal and external sirens, multiple keypads, entry point sensors, CCTV cameras, panic buttons, remote controls and compatibility with smartphone applications allowing you to monitor the system.

Whether you require an installation or servicing and maintenance, you can trust us to get the job done to a high standard. Contact our team today and we can talk you through the possibilities for your home.

Lighting Design

With extensive knowledge of lighting solutions and designs, Our team can help you to create a unique lighting solution in your home. We understand that all the rooms in a home have different uses and therefore it is important that the lighting source is tailored for each one and must have appropriately placed power outlets.

In the lounge you may want an ambient, relaxing atmosphere with good light for reading or watching TV. While in the kitchen you will need enough light to be able to easily see what you are creating, and an office needs bright enough lighting to work in but not too bright as to cause glare and headaches. Outdoor lighting is equally as important, you may like sensor flood lights that automatically turn on when you arrive home after dark.

We help our customers to decide on a lighting solution that fits their budget and requirements while also achieving the atmosphere they are trying to create. With years of experience and a knowledge of the latest products and trends we can customise any design.

We have access to a great variety of lighting including:

  • downlights
  • feature lights
  • feature pendants
  • wall lights
  • stair and hallway lights
  • LED strips
  • outdoor security lighting
  • garden and landscape lighting
  • sensor flood lights

Contact us today to discuss your lighting design.

"Laser electrical were the main electrical contractor for the new EA Network centre and I would have to say that they have been one of the best operators I have ever had to deal with. The staff on site were amazing there was never any issue about carrying out work and they would always have an answer to problems if they appeared they also went well beyond what I have expected from a contractor and helped sort out wiring issues when needed. Sione and Josh need to be congratulated on their fantastic work ethic and problem solving ability.
