The Service We Provide
Are you putting your life at risk when using electricity? Many people are, without knowing it. If you haven't had your electrical system checked within the last 10 years* or since you moved in you may have a significantly greater risk of electric shock or fire.
We can help you identify electrical risks in your property and provide a free quotation for correcting them.
We provide a high quality and reliable service in all types of domestic electrical work. All our work is carried out to the latest version of BS7671 - the IET wiring regulations.
Below is a comprehensive list of the type of domestic work we provide:
We are also happy to carry out any plumbing, plastering, fitting, filling and patching up (within reason) that is required to complete the job.
*Electrical installations in domestic property should be inspected and tested at least every 10 years. For rental property it must be at least every 5 years or change of occupancy. For commercial property it could be even more frequent. Failure to have a current electrical certificate can affect your insurance (e.g. if a fire was caused by a fault in the electrical system or a tenant received an electric shock).
If your fusebox looks like one of those on the left, you should seriously consider having it replaced with a modern consumer unit fitted with RCD protection. The types pictured were designed several decades ago and were never intended to cope with the modern usage of electricity in our homes and workplaces.
Even when the fuses have been replaced with plug-in circuit breakers, they still provide only limited protection.
Residual Current Devices (RCDs) prevent you from getting a fatal electrical shock if you touch something live. This is something ordinary fuses or circuit-breakers (MCBs) can’t do. Like a smoke detector, an RCD installed in your property could one day save a life.
Smoke Alarms and Fire Protection
We have all heard the radio adverts reminding us to test our smoke alarms. So you pressed the test button...
But is your smoke alarm really protecting you?
The test button only tests the alarm - NOT the detector. If you have had your smoke detectors for around 10 years there is a good chance they are no longer reliable - even if the test button works and they go off when you burn the toast!
The current standard requires that typically you should have a mains powered smoke or heat detector with a battery backup on each floor of your house, and that these should be interconnected so smoke anywhere triggers all the alarms.
Think about it... a fire starts downstairs while you're asleep; you want a loud alarm to sound outside your bedroom door don't you?
