Our electricians undertake EICR inspections in rented properties to verify the electrical system and appliances meet the required safety standards.
Along with EICRs, we also offer Portable Appliance Testing (PAT). This is not a legal requirement but is highly recommended as it protects against potential electrical accidents caused by faulty appliances.
The EICR report will include details about all major components, such as consumer units, cables, switches, sockets and light fittings.
Once the inspection is complete and your property has passed, an EICR certificate is issued, providing peace of mind that your property is safe and legal to let.
Lighting is a crucial element of any home, illuminating the living spaces and providing security indoors and out.
General lighting can come in many forms, including traditional chandeliers, recessed downlights and wall-mounted fixtures.
Task lighting provides more specific illumination for activities like cooking, bathing and working from home by placing bright light exactly where it’s needed.
Accent lighting is also essential for adding dimension to kitchens or hallways with up-lighters, downlighters or low-hanging chandeliers.
Outdoor lighting not only adds security to driveways and gardens but also enhances the look of outdoor areas with wall, decking, and motion sensor security lighting.
All lighting installations include energy-saving LED bulbs. However, bulbs have varying wattage ratings and lumen values. Therefore, it’s vital to select bulbs that will provide the perfect amount and tone of light for each area of your home.
Our electricians will help you pick out the right bulbs for the job and ensure they are correctly installed to maximise their efficiency and effect.
Lighting makes all the difference in a room, from task lighting used in bathrooms and kitchens to ambient light used throughout living spaces. Good quality home lighting should provide an inviting atmosphere while meeting practical needs such as reading books or cooking dinner on a work surface without straining your eyesight.
The key is selecting fitting that will blend with the existing decor while making sure they don’t overpower the room too much with sheer brightness.
With so many options out there these days, it can be overwhelming when trying to figure out what lighting works best for you. This is why having an experienced electrician on hand is so helpful when deciding what type of fixtures should be installed in your home.
When an Electrical failure occurs, an electrician will be with you promptly, regardless of the time of day or night.
Our Emergency Electricians in Hockley provide same-day response 24-hour response, 7 days a week with no additional call-out charges.
Our team consists of experienced professionals who have the knowledge and expertise to undertake swift electrical repairs and get your electricity back up and running quickly.
We offer a full rewiring and part rewiring service.
Electrical cables last a long time but will eventually deteriorate, which is common in older homes that have not been rewired in the past 30 years.
To ensure your home’s and its occupants’ safety, it is important to have your electrical wiring checked every ten years and consider a rewire if necessary.
Our electricians are highly experienced in rewiring homes with minimal disruption while meeting the highest standards of workmanship.
We can also install new Electrical systems in extensions and renovations to work with your current Electrical system.
Sockets & Switches
Adding new sockets or upgrading existing ones in the home is a great way to ensure that all appliances and devices run safely without the risk of electrical overload.
With the increasing number of gadgets, tools and appliances being used in the home, it is vital to have adequate powerpoints installed to handle the extra electricity draw.
Our experienced electricians can install new sockets into your home or upgrade existing ones. Nowadays, a variety of faceplates are available on the market, so you can choose one which matches your décor, from standard white plastic to decorative plastic, stainless steel or wooden faceplates.
It is also possible to fit residual current devices (RCDs), USB charging ports, fused connection units (FCUs) with built-in fuses for hard-wired appliances such as boilers and cooker switches, shaver units and more.
This ensures that your electrical system is safe and that any connected appliance can be used safely, protecting you and your family from any potential electrical accidents.
These additional powerpoints provide an added layer of safety and make life easier by making fewer socket adaptors necessary around the house and providing extra convenient charging points for devices such as phones, tablets, etc.
Do you need to use outdoor power tools such as electric lawnmowers, hedge trimmers, and other gardening machinery?
If yes, consider having one of our electricians install an outdoor power socket at your home.
External sockets are waterproof, with heavy-duty sprung covers that protect them from the elements. They also feature built-in RCD fuses for added safety. If any power cable gets cut, the fuse will automatically cut off the power supply.
Outdoor power makes your garden and outdoor jobs much easier and safer when using outdoor power tools.
Installation is straightforward and inexpensive. However, once you experience the benefits of outdoor power sockets, you’ll wonder how you used to live without them.
Fault Finding & Repairs
From the slight flicker of a light bulb to the consistent tripping of a fuse, electrical faults indicate an underlying problem with your home’s system.
Fortunately, our experienced electricians are here to help you resolve issues with your electrical system efficiently and cost-effectively. In addition, we have the tools and experience to quickly establish the source of electrical faults.
Once the location of the fault is found, an Electrician will make the necessary alterations or fit replacement parts to ensure your electrical system runs effectively again.
Consumer Units are a key component of any home’s electrical system, protecting against electrocution and fire.
Old fuse boxes are commonly found in older homes around Hockley, but they provide lower safety than modern consumer units.
Modern consumer units contain Residual Current Devices (RCD fuses) and Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCBs) that help ensure the electrical system’s safety and those using it.
RCDs protect from electrocution if someone touches a live wire, while MCBs guard against overloaded circuits and appliances and prevents faulty wiring or electrical equipment failures.
In case of an electrical fault, these devices will trip instantly to cut power and can be easily reactivated using the built-in switch, unlike old fuses, which require more time to break the connection and may even cause a fire risk.
At our company, we offer free quotes for upgrading old fuse boxes, installing new consumer units and replacing existing ones with modern BS EN 61439-compliant RCD consumer units.
This upgraded type of consumer unit provides better safety levels than its predecessor, thanks to its improved design and safety standards.
Looking for a qualified electrician to help install your new appliance?
Our affordable appliance installation service covers all hard-wired appliances, such as built-in ovens, hobs, boilers, extractor fans and more.
Our experienced Electricians install appliances swiftly and test them as per the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure it works properly. An electrical installation certificate is included as well.
Earthing & Bonding
Earthing and bonding are essential for any electrical installation, ensuring all appliances, wiring and other components are correctly grounded.
Earthing & bonding ensure the safety of everyone in the building, preventing electric shocks, damage to appliances and electrical fires.
All electrical installations include the checking of the earthing and bonding. We can also check your existing system to ensure it’s safe and meets the current standards.
Security lighting is essential for both domestic and commercial properties to protect against criminal activity after dark.
Studies have demonstrated that installing security lighting can drastically reduce the chances of a break-in or vandalism.
As such, it is essential to consider the vulnerable areas of your home or business premises and take steps to secure them.
At your request, one of our electricians can provide a free survey to identify any poorly lit doorways, windows, alleyways or yard areas that intruders could target.
These areas can then be fitted with motion sensor lighting or timed lighting, which is always illuminated after dark. This will deter potential criminals and highlight your other security systems, such as alarms and CCTV cameras.
In the event of a break-in, there will be sufficient lighting for your CCTV to capture images of the perpetrators, which can then be passed on to the police.
All security lighting is fitted with energy-efficient LED bulbs, which are very economical to run.
Smoke & Heat Alarms
Smoke alarms are essential for any household, but they are not a failsafe solution.
Alarms relying solely on battery power, batteries can run out. Also, smoke alarms can be hard to hear throughout the home, not alerting everyone on time to escape safely.
Linked systems installed by a professional electrician offer a much safer and more reliable alternative.
Our team will visit your home to conduct a risk assessment and install smoke and heat alarms in the most critical areas of your property, linking them together before connecting them to the mains electricity supply so that all alarms sound simultaneously in the event of a fire.
Backup batteries in each alarm also ensure they operate even during a power cut, so you’re safety always guaranteed.
