Common setbacks when getting electricity to your home in Ecuador: PART 4 Ecuador coast home build

This week, before the heavy construction begins, we had to bring electricity to our lot from nearby.
First, you may have to install your own transformer.

Just make sure it is at least 5 KW for every house you plan to connect to it.  And make sure the person who installs it is licensed or you could have a problem with the Municipal later!

In my case the whole installation including 3 posts to get the electricity to my lot cost about $3000.

When installing electricity in your home make sure the breaker box is hidden, Ecuadorians will often but the box right in the middle of their living room!  Ouch. #1 Queens Electrician NY | Contractor & Electrical Expert providing reliable affordable electrical services.

Hardly any individuals feel certain to accomplish electrical work around their home or business, even in Southern California. In the event that they need to include a light apparatus, supplant a roof fan, or need a phone framework introduced in their new office, they should call upon an electrician to take care of business.

Make sure the light switches are just 100-110 cm off the ground so kids can reach them, often in Ecuador if not told the workers will install the sockets too high.

Also, make sure the voltage is 110 for normal sockets and 220 for the oven and AC installations. Keep in mind that elесtrісіаnѕ muѕt mаkе sure that any еlесtrісаl іnѕtаllаtіоnѕ using standby generators get installed properly to ensure your home’s safety.

Additionally, most electricians in Ecuador charge per point, or per socket installation.  We paid $8-12 per point (or socket).

Often electricians will tell you you need more expensive cable than you really do so they can steal it, careful!

For sockets 12 cable will suffice, for AC or oven 10 cable is ideal.
