The cost of an electrical service depends on the job itself. There are different factors that affect the cost of electrical services. Here’s an example for you.
Installing a hot water system
The update in the new wiring installation system had an impact on the installation of the new hot water system. Hot water units now need a separate isolator switch. This must also be installed near the unit, thus a dedicated circuit breaker in the switchboard for the hot water unit must be added.
With this, the cost for a hot water system replacement, upgrade and relocation will also be adjusted.
This can be a simple job. Replacing your old system with a similar one will not require additional electrical labour. So this need not be expensive. Just make sure to hire a professional electrician who will replace your unit to ensure safety and standard. Otherwise, you may end up paying more because the job was not done properly.
If you’re planning to upgrade your hot water system into a bigger one - the new wiring installation system will apply. New size of wires, insulations, protections, and an additional circuit breaker will be required. So this can cost you more for the electrical services. You can look out for electrical companies that can help you out if your budget is tight. Upgrading the system would mean upgrading to new rules.
Relocating your hot water system may need to extend the cables and with that, the new rules will apply. So expect a little raise in the costs of the electrical services. You’ll need additional cables, insulation, protection, and a new circuit breaker. That adds up to the expenses. Relocating would cost a different circuit. Different circuit means an additional switch.
