Wow! I was overwhelmed by how popular our honey would be.

All those that were waiting on honey, I've sent you a message asking that you get in touch. Once those orders are filled I still expect to have honey available for others.

Same honey as before, creamed and uncreamed, just in different packaging this time. The honey was harvested in early February 2018 from our hives just outside Carterton. It is cold filtered through a sieve. As it hasn't been heat treated it retains all the lovely floral notes you get from fresh honey.

Available in 500g pots as pictured, $7.50 per pot including GST. A receipt will be issued with all purchases.

We are Belvedere Beekeeping and are registered under the Food Act with Carterton District Council for National Programme 1 to extract and pack honey for retail sale.

Price: $7.50

In our spare time we're hobby beekeeper's. Our lovely bees are located on pasture just outside of Carterton town. They produce more honey than we can use and so this year we are offering it for sale.

The honey is a pasture blend, all from this season and lightly filtered without heat. I can taste mainly clover, with dandelion and a hint of buttercup. We produce it both creamed and uncreamed and pack it into 500g pots at $7.50 each.

As an electrician I travel regularly throughout Wairarapa and may be able to arrange free delivery.

We are registered with Carterton DC under National Programme 1 to extract pack and sell honey to local market. A GST receipt will be provided with all sales.

Are your recessed lights costing you money?

With winter approaching it's a good time to think about home heating and energy efficiency. Over the course of a year you can waste a lot of money on a poorly insulated home.

With winter approaching it's a good time to think about home heating and energy efficiency. Over the course of a year you can waste a lot of money on a poorly insulated home.

Is your house is full of old-school, recessed canister lights? (see attached photo) If so then you could be losing huge amounts of energy into the roof space. This is because these lights rely on airflow to prevent the fitting from overheating. Heated air from your fire or heat pump rises straight up through the fittings to heat your roof space. You have to burn more wood or use more electricity to keep the room comfortable. They also require a clear space around and above them so the insulation won't catch fire. That means gaps in your ceiling insulation.

There is a simple solution to this problem. LED downlights come in a range of styles and sizes. Select one that fits the hole made for the existing canister light and if your wiring is in good order, then the replacement might be made in as little as 10min per light fitting. Choose an IC or IC-F rated downlight then you can install the insulation directly over the light fitting. With the light plugging the hole completely and no gaps in the insulation you will reduce your home heating costs.

If you buy the downlights through me then they will be fully guaranteed. If you prefer to purchase your downlights from a reputable retailer that's absolutely fine. I can install them however your lights' guarantee will be with that business. I will guarantee my workmanship regardless.

Contact us today to discuss your options. I look forward to helping you create a warmer, healthier, more energy efficient home.

Did you know that the rules for charging electric vehicles are about to change?

Plug-in electric vehicles are cheap to run and their range is improving. They're becoming more popular in Wairarapa as both fleet vehicles and as private comuter vehicles. The charging leads are usually fitted with a standard 3-pin 10 Amp plug. This enables them to plug into any standard wall socket to charge the vehicle.

There is a downside to using just any socket. Vehicle chargers typically draw 8-10 Amps of current for several hours at a time. All this current generates heat. Socket circuits are designed to cope with heat, however aging components and thermal insulation added later may lead to deterioration in standard circuits. In the best case they simply stop working. In the worst case they cause a fire.

In March 2018 an update to the New Zealand Wiring Rules will be published. It won't become mandatory until 2019 but until then it describes the latest in industry best practice for electricians in New Zealand and Australia. The new rules include clauses specifically aimed at improving the safety of electric vehicle charging sockets.

So if you have an electric vehicle and you'd like to know whether your charging socket will meet the new safety standards then get in touch. I'll come to you and provide a no obligation assessment of your vehicle charging setup.

Summer is here and the only correct answer to, "What's for dinner", is barbeque paired with a cool, refreshing drink.

How's the lighting in your outdoor entertaining area? There are some fantastic looking, energy efficient, LED outdoor fittings available. Installing these can be straight forward. Ask me for advice on how to go about it.

Lately, I've replaced quite a few socket outlets and switches that have been damaged by ants. They either fizz and crackle or they don't work at all. Replacing these is quick and easy. A little Ripcord insecticide behind the fitting will keep the ants from returning. So no need to put up with faulty fittings - get them fixed.

Wishing you all a safe and happy festive season,
Liz and Rob
