Welcome to TM Hughes & Son Electrical Services Ltd. Our work includes Earthing and Bonding.
Earthing and Bonding are indispensable aspects of all electrical installations, ensuring a secure path for electrical currents to flow and minimising the risk to individuals and property.
These safety measures protect from the likelihood of electrical shock and electrical fires.
Earthing is a technique that connects the electrical system to the earth.
Bonding involves establishing electrical links between conductive components not originally intended to transmit electrical currents.
When combined, Earthing and Bonding create a secure and safe electrical system. The majority of UK electrical installations utilise the TN-S system.
Our team of skilled electricians is well-versed in the correct techniques for earthing and Bonding. With years of experience under their belts, they can handle any electrical installation, no matter the complexity.
Our process starts with a detailed site survey where our experts assess the nature of your electrical system and the potential risks involved.
Based on this assessment, a plan is carefully drafted, outlining the appropriate earthing and Bonding.
We follow the TN-S system, as recommended by UK regulations. The system ensures that the earth and neutral are separate, creating an effective pathway for fault currents, thus reducing the chances of electrical shocks and fire.
The installation process is carried out meticulously, with attention to every detail, ensuring it’s fitted to safety regulations and standards.
After the installation, we conduct thorough inspections and rigorous testing to confirm that the Earthing and Bonding are effective and meet all the safety standards.
Earthing and Bonding go beyond just reducing the risk of electrical shocks and fires. It also contributes to voltage stability, improving the performance and lifespan of your electrical appliances.
Earthing & Bonding require periodic checks and maintenance to ensure continued safety and efficiency.
If you make significant changes to your electrical system or add new components, your earthing and Bonding should be checked and tested.
Regular checks can be done as part of an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR).
We recommend homeowners have an EICR performed every 10 years or whenever they move into a new home.
For rented properties, landlords (by law) should have an EICR done every 5 years or each time a new tenant moves in.
As for commercial and industrial properties, the recommended frequency is every 5 years and 3 years, respectively.
