ten years for Kiwitown Electrical!

Hip hip! Hooray!! 

WOW 10 years have flown in!!! We are STOKED to still be operating 10 years later after we first began business back in 2011. 

When we first started Kiwitown Electrical we were just a small, local company wanting to support the local community with all their electrical needs. 10 years later and we're STILL doing the same (just with a few more awesome supporters!)

Supporting local is at the heart of our company, so we're glad to see that after 10 years we're still operating under the same values. We wouldn't be here today without our loyal customers so we would like to say a massive thank you for all of the support you have shown Kiwitown Electrical over this last decade.

Here's to another 10 years!

We can't stress enough how much we value the support of our local clients and businesses. The Kiwitown Electrical team look forward to helping many more of you this year. 

1) D - Turn the power off!!  Before doing any sort of electrical work on a device or anything, you need to make sure it is powered off. If not, you could potentially shock yourself or fry the device while working on it.

2) D -  When doing electrical work of any kind, it's a good idea to just avoid wearing any sorts of jewellery at all. While you might be safe, there is also a chance that electricity could arc and hurt you.

3) A - The most commonly used material in electrical wiring is copper. It is used because it is low-cost, widely abundant and the fact that it's a great conductor.

4) D - Seemingly everyone has blown their breaker or had an electrical overload at one time or another. These are often caused by too many devices or other things plugged into a circuit and being used at once.

5) C - Amperes, or amps, is the unit that electrical current is measured in. This unit got its name from the French scientist responsible for inventing the solenoid who is a founder of electrodynamics.
Thank you for your ongoing support, we appreciate the feedback and enjoy your comments!
