As many of our work force are moving to ‘working from home’, we are seeing people experiencing frustration with their ‘new’ work environment.
Common issues that people are finding frustrating and impacting their productivity include:

- Slow internet
- Poor WI-FI service, weak signal
- Power points not where you want them to be
- Poor lighting

We appreciate this is a new environment and that they do not design most homes for a ‘work from home’ situation. It is not surprising that this could frustrate you, as you test out your home for working for the very first time, and that you can see some areas that you could improve to make this experience easy and your work efficient.

AB Electrical want to help our community and are offering free estimates and 20% discounts.

AB Electrical would like to extend an offer to North Shore based customers who are looking to improve their ‘work from home’ environment:

1 Free on-site review and quote.
2 Consultation at our showroom with a full range of working down lights, power points & switches.
3 20% discount on materials and labour for jobs booked before 30 April 2020.
