About our Electrical Services
Our qualified team are ready to take on any electrical services you require. Below is more information on each of the many services we offer.
A consumer unit, traditionally known as a fuse box is a series of MCB’s (miniature circuit breakers) that can turn on or off electrical circuits within your home or business. These are designed to trip under fault conditions. A few examples of this are if you were to have a water leak or flood in your property, you overload a circuit or damage to a cable.
Upgrading a consumer unit typically would not cause too much mess as the majority of the mess is contained to one area. Any work that will cause disruption or mess to any plastering or fabric of the building will be notified before work commences. Consumer unit upgrades can start to get more disruptive if the unit needs locating to a new position within the property.
A full domestic rewire means completely replacing the existing circuits in your property. This could be the entire socket or lighting electrical system.
A partial rewire means replacing or upgrading just a small section or circuit. This could even be just one part of a circuit. A partial rewire is often necessary when damage or wear and tear has caused electrical issues and safety problems.
If you’re not sure whether your property needs a full or partial rewire it is recommended our team will come around and inspect the property first and do an Electrical Condition Inspection Report.
Some of the different home renovations and improvements that may require a full or partial rewire include:
- New Cooker circuits
- New shower circuits
- New lighting circuits
- New ring circuits
- New outdoor circuits
- Cable repairs or replacement
Some of the most common electrical problems that may indicate the need for a full or partial rewire include:
- Scorched and burning sockets
- Flickering and dimming lights
- Electric shocks
The majority of landlords are proactive when it comes to ensuring the safety of their tenants and make a welcome contribution to the housing market.
These new Regulations require landlords to have the electrical installations in their properties inspected and tested by a person who is qualified and competent, at an interval of at least every 5 years. Landlords have to provide a copy of the electrical safety report to their tenants, and to their local authority if requested.
Landlords must obtain a report (usually an Electrical Installation Condition Report or EICR) from the person conducting the inspection and test which explains its outcomes and any investigative or remedial work required.
We provide this as a service, just ask us about it and we'll schedule it in.
All electrical installations deteriorate with age and use. They should therefore be inspected and tested at regular intervals to check whether they are in a satisfactory condition for continued use. Such safety checks are commonly referred to as 'periodic inspection and testing'.
A periodic inspection will:
- Reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded.
- Find any potential electric shock risks and fire hazards.
- Identify any defective electrical work.
- Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding.
Tests are also carried out on wiring and fixed electrical equipment to check that they are safe. A schedule of circuits is also provided, which is invaluable for a property.
Your electrics should be inspected and tested every:
- 10 years for an owner-occupied home.
- 5 years for a rented home.
- 3 years for a caravan
- 1 year for a swimming pool.
