Two unregistered electricians have been fined thousands of dollars for unauthorised work.
The sentences delivered at district courts in Auckland and Porirua follow charges laid by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
Houmin Zou, a director of electrical shop Airon, was fined $2500 for incorrectly installing heat pumps at an Auckland property without a license. He also sold heat pumps without authorisation.
In Porirua, Alexander Woodhouse installed lights, power points and a water heater without licenses. He was ordered to pay a $1200 fine.
The Electrical Workers Registration Board has urged people to check if their electricians are licensed before getting work done.
