Everyday Electrical Needs
From replacing a broken socket to finding out why your fusebox trips your electrics to putting up a new light to a part or full rewire … we are here to provide a service for any job that you need.
We specialise in fault-finding, so if something goes wrong we’ll get to the root of the problem and put it right straight away.
If you’re planning an extension or refurbishment or a basement or loft conversion, we’ll make sure you’ll know exactly what will happen, right from the start. You will receive a full itemised quote – not a rough and ready estimate – so that you can save time by making amendments before work begins. We will always keep you up to date with how your project is progressing so that everyone is clear on where we are and how things are going. At the end of the project you’ll be issued with the right certificates to prove your home is safe.
Rapid Response to Electrical problems
We are here to provide a rapid repair service to electrical problems reported by tenanted properties. Common problems can range from tripping fuseboards, damage to circuits caused by leaks, lighting failures down to faulty electric showers. For urgent works we can usually offer same-day service and will confirm the appointment time by text message.
Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing)
We provide portable appliance testing (PAT Testing) for any electrical items supplied at the property such as kettles, toasters and washing machines. Full records are kept of all tests carried out and we will notify you when re-testing will be due.
Electrical Safety Certificates (Electrical Installation Condition Reports, EICR)
An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is an inspection on the condition of an existing electrical installation, to identify (in order of priority) any deficiencies against the national safety standard for electrical installations. Every electrical installation deteriorates with use and age. It is important for the person responsible for the maintenance of the installation to be sure that the safety of users is not put at risk, and that the installation continues to be in a safe and serviceable condition. During this process, we would check the safety of fixed wiring, both in individual properties and communal areas. It is recommended that fixed electrical installations should be inspected & tested at least once every five years, or for a tenanted property every 3 years. If any faults are detected these should be remedied as soon as possible.
You’ve probably heard the horror stories…when the costs spiral out of control, the money runs out, and the project is left half-finished. Keeping everything to budget is one of the key benefits of using a recognised, trustworthy electrical company. With us, you’ll know what your project is going to cost from the outset. Secondly, our project management keeps everything on track and eliminates costly delays or mistakes and you’re assured of a quality renovation at the best price.
Outdoor & Security Electrics
From an outdoor socket to running an electrical supply to your garden shed, from security lights to decorative lights, and even cabling for water features, we can cater for all your outdoor electrical needs. Whether it’s a simple door entry system, a more sophisticated CCTV and surveillance package or mains-operated smoke alarms, we offer a range of services to protect your home.
A free 15 minute visual electrical inspection
A visual electrical inspection is a survey of your electrical wiring system. It is used to identify defects, damage or deterioration of the electrical installation and to determine whether it complies with the current BS7671 electrical safety standard. This type of inspection does not involve any circuit testing, therefore, on is own, it cannot confirm whether the installation is completely safe for continued use. However it can give you a good idea of the current set up and peace of mind.
A visual inspection is not to be used as a replacement for the formal Electrical Inspection Condition Reports.
