We can help you maximise energy efficiency and do your bit for the planet
Making changes to your home to be more energy efficient is the first step you can take to reduce your energy consumption, decrease your monthly bills, protect the environment, and make a significant difference for our planet. Heating your property and your hot water are the two biggest energy-consuming tasks. Hence, introducing energy-efficient heating sources such as heat pumps can reduce your home’s overall energy usage. Adding double glazing and insulation reduces the amount of energy leaving your home, resulting in less energy being spent overall. Other ways you can consume less energy is through LED lighting, using energy-efficient appliances and less hot water, to name a few. If you aim towards a home with 100% renewable or off-grid energy, solar installations or domestic wind turbines are an alternative solution to help reach that goal. Keeping in mind that the amount of energy you require will impact your Solar/Wind installation cost. With our energy-efficient expertise, MC Electrical can give you suggestions about what electrical fittings you should install in your home to be the most environmentally friendly and find a solution that works for you.
We believe that healthy homes make happier tenants and occupants
Whether you have a house of your own or a rental property, a healthy home can significantly impact how you feel, live and work. Apart from the new Laws stating all rental houses and apartments need to comply with the Healthy Homes Standard in New Zealand, showing that you care for your tenants by providing a comfortable living space will attract better quality tenants and by extension will increase the chances that they will take care of the property as continue to stay on, saving you money and hassle in the long run. MC Electrical can give expert advice on where in your property you can provide energy-efficient solutions for ventilation and heating and how you could improve the feeling of comfort. As your green and environmental friendly electricians, we can give you some tips and tricks on saving money on your electrical bills and improving your comfort levels while also supporting the environment.
We can help add value to your property
Having a modern home significantly increases your property’s value and rental yields. It will not only provide a benefit for your tenant or the future owner of your home, but you yourself will get the financial positives when upgrading your home to be healthy and energy-efficient. Simply installing a new heat pump or insulating a home can put great value on your property. It will give you living in your home value, as the standard of your life will improve with a warmer and drier place. However, in the future, when you want to sell your home or rent it out, you can add the additional benefit of a heat pump or efficient hot water system to its price, which in today’s world is becoming extremely important. At MC Electrical, we can tailor solutions to suit your budget so everyone can help play their part in reducing their energy consumption and protecting the environment.
We take your health and wellbeing seriously
Studies show that there is a direct correlation between the quality of our housing and our health. Imagine if all houses in New Zealand were warm, healthy and energy-efficient. There would be a significant decrease in respiratory illnesses due to mouldy and poorly ventilated homes, and occupants would be less likely to get sick due to cold temperature homes. Double glazing, ventilation and whole-home heating are a great start to achieving a healthy home. MC Electrical are experts in ventilation and can fit your bathroom, kitchen and the whole house with our efficient ventilation systems to help make your home a healthier and better place to live in.
