EICR Landlords Certificates
We undertake Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) for landlords, a detailed inspection of the electrical systems in your rented property, covering the wiring, consumer unit, circuits and electrical appliances.
Landlords must have an EICR undertaken on their rental properties by a qualified electrician every five years.
An EICR aims to identify any potential safety hazards in the electrical systems and ensure that the system’s in a safe condition that complies with current regulations. In addition, an EICR verifies your property is safe for tenants and legal to let.
During the EICR, our electrician will check for any damage or wear to the electrical system, test the wiring and appliances, and ensure everything is installed correctly and connected.
Once the EICR has been completed, a certificate is issued.
We have emergency electricians in Benfleet available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to attend to electrical emergencies.
Our electricians are trained to handle all types of electrical emergencies, with the tools and knowledge to quickly diagnose and repair faults.
Don’t delay if you’re experiencing any electrical faults at home or work. Electrical faults can potentially cause injury, damage property and disrupt your business.
We install new consumer units and upgrade old ones so to conform with the latest wiring regulations.
The consumer unit (also known as a fuse box) is the central distribution point for electrical circuits that run around your home. It distributes power, prevents electric shocks and protects the electrical system from overload.
New Consumer Units are fitted with the latest RCD fuses safety devices that protect against electric shocks caused by overcurrent.
The RCD works by monitoring the current flowing in an electrical circuit’s live and neutral wires. If it detects a difference between the two, indicating a fault, it will quickly switch off the power to prevent injury and damage to circuits and appliances.
If you have an old-fashioned fuse board or a dated plastic Consumer Unit, you should consider an upgrade to ensure your electrical system is as safe as possible. Let us provide you with a free survey and quote.
We offer full and part rewiring services. Rewiring involves replacing or updating the electrical wiring in the home or business premises.
Rewiring is typically undertaken when the property wiring is old and outdated, or when a building is being renovated.
The procedure involves:
- Running new wires throughout the property.
- Connecting them to the appropriate outlets and switches.
- Connecting to a new consumer unit.
When rewiring, it is also essential to consider the property’s power needs, such as the number of outlets, lighting fixtures, and appliances. Our electrician will perform a free no-obligation survey to determine your needs and design and price the perfect new wiring system for your property.
Sockets & Switches
We offer a Socket and Switch installation and upgrade service. Modern sockets and switches are available in various materials and finishes to match any decor.
There are also advanced features on offer, such as built-in USB ports so you can directly charge your phones and tablets without having to use a plug socket.
Some Sockets and Switches can be integrated with smart systems so you can take control from an app on your smart device.
We can also run new sockets and switches in your home if you need additional power points or lights.
We offer a complete Lighting design and installation service.
We can upgrade your existing lighting fixtures or install a completely new Lighting system with new running new wiring to new lights and switches.
When installing lighting, it is important to consider the overall design and layout of the space. Factors include the size and shape of the room, the amount of natural light that enters the area, and the room’s intended use.
That’s why it’s important to have a free no-obligation survey undertaken by one of our experienced electricians. Who will work with you to determine the best lighting setup for your space.
All new lighting is installed with the latest energy-saving LED bulbs, we also offer Smart lighting so you can control your lights from your device.
While many of today’s appliances plugin, some need wiring directly into the electrical system.
We install these appliances, including ovens, hobs, Boilers, air conditioning units and more.
An Electrician will ensure the appliance is wired incorrectly as per the current wiring regulations and the manufacturer’s specifications.
Our electrician will also ensure that the appliances are connected to the correct RCD fuse and adequately earthed to prevent electrical shocks and overloading.
After the appliances are connected, they are tested to ensure it’s working correctly and that there are no issues with the electrical connections.
Our electrician can also provide instructions and demonstrations on using your new appliance safely and efficiently.
Earthing & Bonding
Our Earthing and Bonding services include installation, checking and testing to ensure the safety of your electrical system.
Earthing refers to the process of connecting the electrical system to the earth, which in the event of a fault, carries the electrical current to the earth preventing electrocution. Bonding, on the other hand, refers to the process of connecting various metal parts of an electrical system together, which also prevents electrocution.
A qualified electrician will install and connect the necessary components during earthing and bonding installation to ensure the electrical system is earthed. They will also connect metal parts of the electrical system to the earthing system, which helps to prevent electrical fires.
Once the installation is complete, the electrician will perform a series of tests to ensure that the earthing and bonding system is working correctly and that there are no connection issues.
These tests typically include measuring the resistance of the earthing system and checking for continuity between various metal parts of the electrical system.
Regular earthing and bonding checking by an electrician is good practice to ensure the safety and reliability of the electrical system and to prevent any unwanted incidents that may cause damage or injury to the people and property.
Electrical fault finding involves identifying and resolving issues with the electrical system. Our electricians have the necessary knowledge, skills, and equipment to diagnose and repair problems quickly.
The process of electrical fault finding begins with a thorough inspection of the electrical system, including the wiring, circuits, and other components.
The electrician will use testing equipment to check for issues such as loose connections, broken wires, and other problems that may be causing issues like tripping fuses, buzzing and electric shocks.
Once the electrician has identified the problem, he’ll rectify it. This may involve rewiring, replacing an RCD fuse, or other repairs.
After repair, the electrician will undertake testing to ensure that the electrical system is working correctly and the fault is rectified.
Smoke, Heat & Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Smoke, heat and CO alarms are crucial in detecting potential hazards, providing an early warning and giving people the time to evacuate or take action to prevent a fire, CO poisoning or other hazards.
We also install connect alarms directly to your mains electrical supply. Wired-in alarms are more reliable than battery alarms as they are always powered and include backup batteries, so you are covered if there’s a power cut.
The wired alarms are also interconnected, so if one alarm sounds, they all sound, alerting everyone on every floor.
Outdoor power sockets are installed to an outside wall and can withstand exposure to the elements.
The sockets are inside a weatherproof box and will last many years. They are a convenient way to use outdoor power equipment, such as lawnmowers, power tools, and lighting fixtures, without running extension cords through windows and doors.
You can also power outdoor speakers, TVs, and other entertainment devices to enhance your outdoor living experience and social gatherings.
We install Security Lighting at homes and businesses. A security lighting installation offers a range of benefits which include.
- Bright lights in dark areas make it more difficult for intruders to hide and discourage break-ins or vandalism.
- Security lighting will help you see better outside at night, with more straightforward navigation and less risk of an accident.
- Well-lit properties look more attractive and are therefore perceived as more valuable.
- Knowing that your property is well-lit provides a sense of security, especially if you are away from home for long periods.
- Security cameras are more effective with sufficient lighting.
A thorough assessment of your property by one of our Electricians will determine the best type of lights and the optimal location, ensuring adequate lighting of the outdoor area.
Our electrician will write a lighting plan and price that includes the type and placement of the lights and the type of bulbs.
Security lighting includes the latest LED bulbs, which are much cheaper and more environmentally friendly than traditional bulbs.
