Maintenance and Servicing

Whether your mains has 'blown', your switchboard keeps 'tripping', or you just need a light fitting changed, you can rely on Laser Electrical Remuera to get it sorted for you.

For older homes, circuit or house rewiring, or a switchboard upgrade may the best way forward. Our Laser Electrical Remuera electricians can assess where your home currently is at & work with you to decide on the best way forward.

For extra peace of mind, we can work with you to create a Preventative Maintenance Schedule. This entails us giving your home a thorough Electrical check-up with advice on how we can help you to keep your house in tip-top shape.

At the end of the day, prevention is always better than a cure and a good maintenance schedule will help to reduce the expensive costs of repairs or replacements in the future.

We also understand that your time is important, and we aim to minimise stress by providing an electrician who shows up on time, is friendly, well presented and carries out your job with all the professional care and skill you would expect in your home.

LED Lighting

We can replace your existing lights with new LED Light Fittings, or install LEDs in new locations. However, Why should you install LED Lighting & how will that save you money?

The first reason is there is up to 80% reduction in lighting electricity costs

Your power bill is made up of the wattage of power used over a period of time and because LED light fittings use less power, your energy bill will be less as well. Even just replacing the existing incandescent or halogen light fittings in high usage areas such as the kitchen, lounge, family room and hallways will result in savings

Greatly reduced maintenance costs

Savings can be made in the long term because LED Lighting lasts much longer than traditional incandescent, halogen or fluorescent lighting. This means replacement, maintenance and repair costs are greatly reduced.

Improved lighting

LED lights are far more versatile than traditional lighting. We can create a brighter, colourful (if required) and more beautiful lighting design that will suit the shape and mood of any space.

Internet and Phone Wiring

So if you need new data or phone outlets in your home, we can help. And because we are electricians, we are experts at hiding cables!

If your installation is part of a new home electrical installation - then the wiring is all pretty straight forward. However, if you want extra cables in an existing home, the project can be a bit more challenging.

Fortunately for you, our experience means we can advise on the most practical and cost-effective ways to install cables in an aesthetically pleasing way while achieving excellent data speeds.

If you already have Chorus Fibre installed from the street into your home, now is a great time to get us in to run data cables to your living areas, bedrooms, office and gaming rooms. Basically wherever you and your family need the fastest connections in your home.

Ask us how to get the best high-speed internet in your home.

Switchboards, Mains and Safety Switches

An electrical switchboard upgrade may be required to ensure your home & family are safe from the risk of fire or electrocution. If you're not sure, it's easy to get one of our registered electricians to check it out for you

Home mains switchboards are sometimes known as circuit breaker boards (or for those who are old-school) fuse boards.

Today's modern home switchboards are far safer with more advanced technology. This reduces the chance of electrical issues occurring, that could affect your entire home.

New switchboards are also fitted with RCD safety switches which keep you from receiving a nasty shock if something goes wrong when you're flicking a switch or have a faulty home appliance.

Older fuse boards can also include some other serious safety risks, such as fuse wires and even containing asbestos. These risks are eliminated in the newer version electrical switchboards.

If you are renovating or just getting some mains or cabling installed, that is an excellent time to replace that dangerous old board with a far better-looking new switchboard with the mandatory safety switches that will meet all the current electrical standards and regulations.

Ask how our "Totally Dependable" team of experienced electricians at Laser Electrical Remuera, can keep your home and family safe with our expertise in mains wiring and new switchboard installs.

House Wiring

Laser Electrical Remuera has excellent domestic electricians, who understand that the finished product will be someone's home. This type of work demands it's own set of skills & meticulous attention to detail.. The great news is, when it comes to either wiring or rewiring a house, we specialise in both!

Working throughout Remuera and across the greater Auckland area for 99 years has given us the experience and knowledge on how to wire & rewire homes in an efficient and professional way.

New Home Wiring

Wiring for new builds & the required electrical connections should be completed by a registered electrician.This ensures that everything you can see 'front of wall', is safe & fit for purpose because the wiring & connections behind the walls (that you can't see) are fully compliant with the NZ Electrical regulations.

Older Home Rewiring

A pre-1960 home could be wired in old-style cables that are notorious for their deteriorating insulation, which eventually exposes the bare copper wires underneath. In addition to this, older light switches, electrical switches and power points can become brittle and break apart with age. Both of these scenarios can create a serious risk of fire or even worse, electric shock.

Also, electrical products installed in houses back then were not designed or wired to suit the way we use lighting and power circuits in our homes today. Technology has also come such a long way and today's modern cables, light switches and power points are far safer.

Benefits of rewiring your house to modern standards:

  • Less ongoing electrical repair and maintenance work
  • Cheaper house insurance
  • Stop fuses tripping
  • Fewer light bulbs blowing
  • Peace of mind through removing fire and electric shock hazards

Electric Vehicle Charging

Are you already ahead of the curve or maybe you have plans to upgrade to the earth-saving option for private transport? Drive yourself into the future with electric vehicle charging in your home.

Electric cars are quickly becoming the new normal, especially in Auckland. Pure EVs are now even more popular than hybrids and because of our busy day to day lives, having a fast-charging solution in your home is the best way to go.

Perhaps you need an EV Charger installed as part of your New Build electrical install, or do you need an electrical installation in your existing home? Do you have loads of space to spare or is your garage is a little bit cramped?

Laser Electrical Remuera can work with you to get the best electric car charging solution installed in the perfect position. We want to be sure you never run out of juice. You can trust our qualified domestic electricians to get it done right!

Give us a call & ask what we can do for you.

Emergency and Exit Lighting

Safety isn't just about complying with regulations, it's about making sure that you are prepared for any unexpected emergency.

The physical location of New Zealand, sitting right on the Pacific Ring of Fire, makes us more vulnerable to natural disasters. Therefore, it is good to know that when an unexpected emergency strikes, a functioning, well-designed emergency lighting system could literally save lives.

Laser Electrical Remuera can install, test and repair emergency lighting and exit signs for the commercial sector, ensuring you meet all your safety requirements. Typical emergency lighting installs or service work could include offices, schools, dormitories and factories.

We have IQP registered commercial electricians on staff and with our commitment to a high standard of health and safety, you can rest assured that your emergency lighting installation is safe and reliable.

Ask now how Laser Electrical Remuera can make sure your emergency lighting is up to date and working correctly.

Data and Communications

Most of today's modern businesses work 'In The Cloud' and use VOIP for their phone systems, therefore, fast speed internet is absolutely essential.

Having computers and other devices connected by a hard-wired data cable will make your internet far quicker. This is because information and data can move more quickly and efficiently through a hard-wired connection than it can via a Wi-Fi wireless connection.

We know cables can be a nightmare but our commercial electricians are experts at keeping them tidy and hidden. We can advise you on what would be the best practical, cost-effective way to install and hide cables in a way that looks good with no compromise in performance.

Has Chorus installed Fibre from the street and into your building? If so, that's great. Get us to come in and run data cables to wherever you need them within your premises.

Ask us at Laser Electrical Remuera how we can help your business get the fastest possible internet throughout.

Appliance Test and Tagging

Business Owners, are you aware that it is your responsibility to ensure all electrical equipment that you or your employees use, is electrically safe for use & maintained in a safe condition?

What needs to be tested?

Any electrical equipment that is connected to the electrical supply by a flexible cord and/or connecting device needs to tested and tagged.

Examples of office equipment that you probably use on a daily basis without even realising:

  • Kitchen appliances such as: Toasters, Kettles & Water Boilers, Microwaves, Coffee Machines, Fridges & Freezers etc (even if they have been brought in from home)
  • Computer equipment such as: leads for Computers, Printers, Monitors, Tills, Phone & Tablet chargers
  • General equipment such as: Electric Fans, Radios, Stereos, Electric Clocks

Examples of specialist Electrical Tools & Equipment that you may use in the process of running your individual business:

  • Tools (Drills, Saws, Cutters, Machines, Compressors etc)
  • Ovens & other Commercial Kitchen equipment
  • Extension Leads
  • RCD Protection

How often does my equipment need to be re-tested?

The tagging re-test cycle depends on the type of electrical equipment & the environment in which it is being utilised, ie: an extension lead being used every day on a building site will require more frequent testing than an office desktop computer. Typical testing cycles are 3 monthly, 6 monthly, 12 monthly or 5 yearly.

Testing should be carried out over the entire life of the electrical equipment

Why use a licenced electrician from Laser Electrical Remuera to Test & Tag your electrical equipment & appliances?

  • If a piece of electrical equipment fails the test – because you are using Laser Electrical Remuera's registered electricians, we can quickly assess whether the appliance is repairable, & if so, carry out the repair quick-smart!
  • Our system creates a Log of the testing history for every piece of equipment in your business. Therefore, at any time, we can print a report showing the full test history for any Test & Tagged appliance
  • You don’t need to remember to get hold of us when any piece of equipment is due to be re-tested. Our system will alert us & we can then notify you to get a re-test booked in.

About Us

Previously known as Vear Electrical, we were established in 1921 by Alf and Jack Vear. In 2008, we accepted an invitation to join the Laser Group as Laser Electrical Remuera.

“This was a massive and very emotional decision for us,” says owner Paul Martens, who bought the business and the tradition in 1984. Vear Electrical and our team of registered electricians had been looking after the electrical needs of the people of Remuera and the surrounding suburbs for over 80 years.

“Literally as electricity was being introduced into Auckland we were there. We had a very large and loyal customer base who were not only our clients but our friends. We didn’t want to lose that very special relationship we had with these people, the history and the area. But to be honest, we just had to move into the 21st century if the company was to survive and prosper in these changing times, what with all the technology that surrounds us.”

“So when we really thought about it, we knew how to offer a very professional service. We had fantastic staff, history and tradition, but we didn’t have the systems and scale that Laser offered such as bulk purchasing power and modern technology, which would make us more efficient in this very competitive and changing environment.”

Since we made the leap to Laser, we have been able to offer the same top quality service that sits at the core of who we are, as well as allowing us to offer the most modern solutions to our expanding customer base.
