Consumer Unit Upgrades & Installation
We install new consumer units and upgrade old fuse boxes to modern BS EN 61439-compliant RCD consumer units.
Old fuse boxes feature in older homes around Maldon while they are not illegal they are not as safe as the latest consumer units which feature Residual Current Devices (RCD fuses) and Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCB’s).
The RCD’s protect you and your family from electrocution should anyone accidentally touch a live wire while MCB’s protect your circuits and appliances from overload and electrical fire.
Residual Current Operated Circuit Breaker’s with Overcurrent protection (RCBO’s) can also be fitted which do the job of both RCD’s and MCB’s.
In the event of an electrical fault, the RCD, MCB or RCBO will instantly ‘trip’ cutting power and are easily reactivated with the built-in switch.
Old fuses cut power by melting fuse wire and severing the connection, not as fast as new fuses and a fire risk. If you have an old fuse box or dated consumer unit, let us come over and give you a free quote for an upgrade.
Socket Upgrade & Installation
As time goes on the average homeowner uses more and more appliances. A common complaint is that there are not enough sockets in one’s home.
Our Maldon Electricians can add more power points to your home in the most convenient of locations.
Modern-day sockets are available with many built-in features such as built-in RCD’s (that cut power in case a cable’s ever accidentally cut) and USB ports so now you can charge your phone and run appliances from the same socket.
Appliances such as cookers and boilers are hardwired to connection units with built-in fuses.
If you have recently decorated or refurbished your home, you’ll likely want socket faceplates that compliment the new look to your living spaces.
We can upgrade existing sockets at a very reasonable cost by changing the old faceplates for new ones. Replace the old white plastic with stainless steel, other metals, coloured plastic and even wood.
Sockets should be upgraded if they’re getting hot, are cracked, hanging off the wall or have loose screws, any of these symptoms are a safety issue and should be looked at ASAP.
Sockets can be added outdoors also, very handy for lawnmowers, outdoor power tools and portable outdoor lighting. All outdoor sockets are waterproof, dustproof with protective spring covers.
RCD sockets can be fitted outdoors for maximum protection.
Rewiring, Full & Part
Electrical cables last around 30 years, if your home hasn’t been rewired in the previous three decades, you might need a rewire. Homes should be checked every ten years for deteriorated wires.
We can carry out a full survey of the cables in your home and determine if you need a full or part rewire we’ll also check your consumer unit and ensure it’s safe.
We also regularly carry out wiring installations on new build properties and extensions.
All wiring/rewiring work is done to the latest 17th Edition BS7671 regulations utilising modern twin and earth cables that cope with the demands of the present day home.
Lighting makes or breaks the atmosphere of your home, done right lighting enhances the mood and feel of each room, creating comfort and pleasantness.
Our electricians are experts in lighting design and installation with lots of knowledge on all lighting types and will design each room in accordance with your personal preferences.
Different activities are carried out in the living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms each room needs different lighting set up for the best ambience.
General lighting’s used to illuminate these rooms; lights include chandeliers, recessed lights and spotlights, all strategically placed for maximum effect.
Task lighting’s fitted in required areas of the kitchen, bathroom and home office so you can carry out your day to day tasks efficiently.
Outdoor lighting installations make outdoor areas safe, secure and comfortable homes with sensor-activated security lighting are far less likely to be burgled, you can also see where you’re going when outside after dark reducing the chances of an accident.
Many Maldon residents have a garden, and landscape lighting installed, creating an outdoor living space for the warmer months.
We fit both modern LED lights and traditional halogen bulb type lights installed on walls, bollards, the ground and in decking.
There are many types available, and again, one of our Electricians will design a lighting installation in accordance to your outdoor space.
Earthing And Bonding
Any electrical work undertaken in your home will include the checking of the earthing and bonding an essential part of the electrical system that carries the current to earth, preventing electrocution.
After, every installation, upgrade or repair electricians make sure the earthing and bondings up to the legal BS7671 standard.
In the event of an electrical emergency call us immediately never attempt to deal with an electrical fault yourself Emergency Electricians are available in Maldon for both domestic and commercial call-outs 24 hours a day, seven days a week for both Domestic and Commercial properties with no call out charges.

Our Electricians are fully qualified to deal with any electrical emergency that may arise, are local and can be with you in a short space of time.
If you have a power cut call your supplier to establish whether the cut is down to a supply fault if so your electricity will come back on automatically.
Not a supply fault? Check the fuses in your consumer unit; a fuse may have tripped causing the loss of power, turn the fuse back on.
If the power doesn’t come back on and all fuses are on, then the power cut could be down to several reasons, we’ll diagnose and fix the fault with your electrical system.
Fuses that trip regularly are a sign of a fault somewhere in the system if your fuses are tripping regularly let us check your order.
Periodically check your consumer unit if it’s making strange noises such as buzzing or humming then there’s a fault, do not ignore these signs the fault could be dangerous, get your consumer unit checked.

Electrical Services For Maldon Landlords
By law landlords must ensure their property’s safe for their tenants, we offer landlords Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICR) and Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing)
EICR’s and PAT Testing ensures the electrical installation of your rented property is safe at the start of each tenancy and maintained to a safe condition throughout the tenancy and appliances are safe with CE markings.
Enabling you to prove your properties been checked by a qualified Electrician, is safe and legal while validating your insurance and covering you in the event of an electrical accident.
EICR’s are recommended every five years (on both HMO and non-HMO properties ) and at the start of a new tenancy. PAT Testing’s only a legal requirement for HMO landlords never the less many private landlords carry out PAT testing anyway for extra protection.
Don’t worry, both EICR’s and PAT Testing is non-expensive. During the EICR we’ll inspect every part of the electrical system, testing the consumer unit, earthing, fuses, wiring, sockets and light fittings. Any faults found will be rectified, a certificate’s issued on completion.
PAT Testing involves the inspection and testing of portable appliances such as fridges, freezers, washing machines, hoovers, irons etc. making sure they’re safe for your tenants to use.
