We install new consumer units and upgrade old fuse boxes to modern BS EN 61439-compliant RCD consumer units.
Old fuse boxes are commonly found in older homes around Canvey Island. While they aren’t illegal, they provide a lower level of safety than the latest consumer units.
Modern consumer units contain Residual Current Devices (RCD fuses) and Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCBs), making the electrical system extremely safe.
RCDs protect against electrocution if someone accidentally touches a live wire, while MCBs prevent electrical fires, overloaded circuits, and appliances.
For even more protection, Residual Current Operated Circuit Breakers with Overcurrent protection (RCBOs) can be fitted, combining the functions of both RCDs and MCBs.
In the event of an electrical fault, these devices will trip instantly to cut power. They are easily reactivated with a built-in switch. Old fuses take longer to break the connection and may even cause a fire risk.
We offer free, no-obligation quotes to upgrade old fuse boxes, consumer units, and new installations.
Electrical cables are essential to every home, providing power for everyday appliances and lighting.
On average, these cables last around 30 years. So if your property has yet to be rewired in three decades or longer, you will almost certainly require a rewire.
We recommend having a complete survey of the cables in your home every ten years to ensure they have stayed intact and remain safe.
We provide rewiring services for both existing homes and new builds or extensions.
All wiring is installed according to current regulations, with modern twin and earth cables that can handle the demands of any home.
We’ll also check and make sure your consumer unit is safe and up to date.
Socket Installs & Upgrades have become increasingly popular in recent years. As the average homeowner looks to increase their number of appliances, they require more electrical points.
Our Canvey Island Electricians can help you add power points in the most convenient locations around your home.
Modern sockets are now available with built-in features, such as RCDs (residual current devices) which cut power if a cable is ever accidentally cut, and USB ports for charging phones or other devices.
Socket faceplates can also be upgraded to compliment the new look of any refurbished or recently decorated living spaces, replacing old white plastic with stainless steel, other metals, coloured plastic, or even wood.
It’s essential to check that existing sockets are not getting hot to the touch, cracked, hanging off the wall, or have loose screws. These symptoms can indicate a safety issue and should be inspected immediately.
Lighting is an essential element of any home, as it creates the atmosphere and mood of a space. Our electricians are experienced lighting designers and installers with a wealth of knowledge across all lighting fixtures.
Considering your preferences, they will design each room individually to provide the best ambience in your living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms.
Lights include chandeliers, recessed lights and strategically placed spotlights to provide maximum effect.
Task lighting is fitted in areas such as the kitchen, bathroom and home office so you can easily carry out your everyday activities.

Earthing & Bonding
Any electrical work conducted in the home is only completed by verifying its earthing and bonding system.
This system is an essential part of the electrical circuitry, responsible for safely carrying an electric current to the earth and protecting against electrocution.
BS7671 legally requires electricians to ensure that any installations, repairs or upgrades have earthing and bondings that adhere to the standard.

Various issues can occur in electrical systems and components, such as lights, switches, sockets and consumer units.
Many signs of a fault need to be addressed by a qualified electrician, such as flickering lights, buzzing consumer units, burning smells and crackling noises.

Studies have demonstrated that the presence of illuminated entry points deters potential thieves and intruders.
All security lights we install are weatherproof, durable, and equipped with modern, energy-efficient LED bulbs.

Landlords Electrical Certificates
As a landlord, you are responsible for ensuring the safety of your tenants and property.
Through Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICR) and Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing), we offer landlords a comprehensive way to maintain the highest level of electrical safety for their properties.
EICRs is recommended every five years for both HMO and non-HMO properties and at the start of a new tenancy.
PAT Testing is only legally required for HMO landlords, but many private landlords choose to have it done anyway for extra protection.
Both services are cost-effective and can be completed quickly and efficiently.
During an EICR, our qualified electricians will inspect and test the consumer unit, earthing, fuses, wiring, sockets and light fittings for potential faults.
Any issues found will be rectified, and a certificate will be issued upon completion.
Regarding PAT Testing, all portable appliances such as fridges, freezers, washing machines and hoovers are inspected and tested to ensure they are safe for tenants.
By conducting these tests, you can prove that a qualified Electrician has checked your properties and ensure that you and your property are covered in the event of an electrical accident.
EICRs offer landlords the peace of mind that their properties are safe for their tenants and rented legally.
Smoke & Heat Alarms
Modern smoke and heat alarms are essential to any home, providing a vital line of defence against the threat of fires.
Not only should each home have at least one alarm per floor, but these alarms should be connected so that they all sound simultaneously in the event of a fire. This increased level of protection can save lives.
We offer a comprehensive smoke and heat alarm installation service by our professional electricians.
We begin with a risk assessment of each home to determine the best placement and design for an effective system.
Particular attention is paid to those in the household who may be more vulnerable to the threat of fires. This ensures that everyone in the home is adequately defended.
Once the system has been designed, it is installed with the alarms in their optimal positions.
The alarms are wired into the main’s electricity supply and feature backup batteries to remain functional even if electricity is absent.
With Smoke & Heat Alarms in place, you can rest assured that your home and family are safe.
