Domestic Electrical Services
Over the years, TM Hughes Electricians have undertaken many jobs in South Woodham Ferrers homes for homeowners, tenants and landlords.
We’re happy to help you, whatever your electrical needs are or however big or small the job is.
Sockets & Switches
Modern-day homes use more devices and appliances than ever.
Most family members these days have devices that need regular charging.
As such, more sockets are desired to accommodate modern-day living’s electrical needs.
We can add more socket points in your home so you can use more appliances at any time or upgrade your existing sockets.
Modern-day sockets have the option of built-in USB ports and RCD fuses. Now you can charge your phones or tablets without having to unplug any other appliances. Built-in RCD fuses ensure all sockets are extra safe.
Traditional white sockets and switches can be upgraded to modern-looking designs in various materials to compliment your interior design.
Consumer units are key for safety and domestic electrical systems’ correct function.
If you have an old fuse box mounted on a wooden board or an older style plastic consumer unit, then it’s time to upgrade.
We install BS EN 61439 Consumer Units with the latest RCD, MCB and MCBO fuse. An ultra-safe set-up that’ll cut power immediately in the event of a fault in the system. New consumer units are also made from non-combustible metal preventing electrical fire spread.
Rewiring Full & Partial
We undertake whole and part rewiring that conforms to the latest regulations (amendment 2 of the 17th edition BS7671).
Many older properties in South Woodham Ferrers have old wiring. If your home hasn’t been rewired in the past 30 years, then it may need rewiring.
One of our electricians can check your electrical system and the condition of the wiring.
Rewiring your property ensures you and your family’s safety and allows the opportunity to install extra sockets, switches, and lights.
Many older electrical systems were not built to cope with the power demands of modern-day living.
For those who have had a major renovation such as an extension, we can install the wiring to work with your existing consumer unit.
Sometimes extensions utilise a separate consumer unit.
We also offer partial rewiring for areas of the home that may have been damaged or suffered wire deterioration.
All our lighting installations include the very best LED bulbs, saving lots of energy.
We can replace your existing lights with modern versions.
Alternatively, if you’re undergoing a refurbishment, we can design and build a new lighting system to work perfectly with your home.

We can replace your existing lights with modern versions. Alternatively, if you’re undergoing a refurbishment, we can design and build a new lighting system to work perfectly with your home.
We also fit Smart lighting, which allows you to control the light via an app on your smart device even when away from home.
Outdoor sockets can be installed in your garden or garage areas, allowing you to safely use power tools without inconvenient and potentially dangerous extension leads.
Outdoor sockets are designed to withstand outdoor elements. They can include built-in circuit breakers to prevent electrocution in case of an accident (such as cutting through the lawnmower lead).
Outdoor lighting’s perfect for illuminating your home’s architectural features, outdoor living areas, or as a security feature for vulnerable outdoor areas.
Outdoor lighting includes wall, post and decking lights along with motion detector security lighting, which is ideal for seeing in the dark and deterring burglars and vandals.
EICR Certificates & PAT Testing
If you rent a property in South Woodham Ferrers, you’ll need annual EICR inspections and certificates.
One of our local electricians can visit your property to undertake the required inspections and issue the EICR certification so you can rent your property legally.
We offer PAT testing to employers, landlords and the self-employed. PAT testing stands for ‘Portable Appliance Testing and is a preventative maintenance procedure that ensures all portable appliances are safe for use and don’t pose an electrical accident risk.
Landlords and Employers want to ensure their tenants and employees are safe, while the self-employed want to ensure their own safety.
That’s why PAT testing is a recommended (although not legally required) procedure carried out frequently to ensure safety to all that use the portable appliances in the rented property or workplace.
An electrician will visit your property or business premises at an agreed time and carry out the necessary inspection and testing on all plug-in appliances.
In the home setting, this will include kettles, irons, hairdryers and larger stationary appliances such as TV’s and washing machines.
In the workplace, PAT testing will cover the industrial appliances and plug-in tools used for trade and production.
The ideal frequency of PAT testing depends on whether the appliances are handheld or stationary, whether the appliances are in a rented property or commercial premises and what the line of business is.
Our electricians install all types of electrical appliances.
Some appliances don’t plug in. They need wiring into their own circuit.
Wired in appliances need to be fitted by a qualified electrician for safety and regulation compliance. Always use a professional.
We make the process quick, inexpensive and pain-free with our appliance installation service.
Earthing & Bonding
Earthing and Bonding are carried out on all electrical installations to ensure the install meets the BS7671 safety standards.
Earthing and Bonding prevent electric shocks to people if a fault ever develops within the electrical system or with an appliance.
Property owners with homes built before 1991 should have their Earthing and Bonding checked by one of our electricians to ensure it meets the current safety regulations.
Fault Finding & Electrical Repairs
Don’t panic if you discover something wrong with your electrical system.
If you are experiencing faults such as burning smells, or marks, tripping fuses, flicking lights, or crackling noises, give us a call and speak to one of our experienced electricians.
Security lighting systems are inexpensive to install, last many years due to the built-in weather protection, and cheap to run when fitted with modern LED bulbs.
Security lighting dramatically reduces the chances of a criminal event such as vandalism or burglary at your home or commercial premises.
Criminals are scared by light. They know they are far more likely to get caught or identified.
It’s for this reason crime statistics have shown that properties with security lights are targeted less by criminals.
One of our experienced electricians will undertake a free survey at your property and design a security lighting system to illuminate the at-risk areas of your home or business premises.
The system will be designed to work in conjunction with your existing security systems, or we can install CCTV and alarms at the same time if you wish.
We fit all types of security lights such as motion sensor lighting, floodlights, timed lights and solar-powered security lighting.
TM Hughes & Son design and install security systems in and around the area.
We offer free no-obligation surveys and quotes for home and business owners.
An electrician will evaluate your property, establish the at-risk areas such as doors and windows before designing an appropriate system.
A combination of alarms, CCTV cameras, sensors and a control panel is fitted, connected together and to your mains electrical system.
Systems are monitored, so if a forced entry takes place at your property, you are notified immediately.
A break-in will be highly unlikely anyway after the installation of your security system.
Crime facts and figures have shown properties protected with security systems are far less targeted than unprotected properties.
Smoke & Heat Alarms
It’s essential you have smoke and heat alarms fitted on every floor of your property.
For the best possible protection, it’s recommended you have mains powered, linked alarms fitted in your home by a qualified electrician.
Linked alarms are placed on every floor, in various rooms of your property. If a fire occurs in one room, all the alarms will go off at once.
Far safer than a single battery-powered alarm you may not hear because you are on a different floor.
One of our electricians will undertake a free survey and write a free quote to fit modern, wired in and interconnected alarms in your home or business premises.
We also design and install systems for the vulnerable and those at more risk.
Electricity is dangerous and in the wrong hands can kill.
Never attempt to deal with electrical issues yourself.
Our Electricians are available 24 hours a day for emergencies. If you have a fault with your electrical system give us a call. You’ll speak to an Electrician who’ll advise over the phone and get out to you within 2 hours.
Our emergency services are available for domestic and commercial properties and include fair rates and no call out charges.
TM Hughes & Son offer a range of Electrical services to South Woodham Ferrers’ businesses.
Our services cover commercial, industrial, office and retail premises.
Every business has different electrical needs. Often existing electrical installations need upgrading or adjusting to serve new businesses entering premises or established businesses whose production has grown.
Our electricians deal with commercial electrical systems, including single and three-phase systems and Cat 5, Cat 5E & Cat 6 wiring.
All commercial electrical installations include EIC (Electrical Installation Certificate) or a MEIWC (Minor Electrical Installation Works Certificate) and conform to the required IEE regulations.
We have a flexible team that can work outside of working hours, so your day to day operations are not disrupted.
We have fitted many commercial lighting installations over the years and will design the perfect lighting installation to work with your business.
Modern commercial LED bulbs are incredibly energy-efficient compared to traditional workplace bulbs. Upgrading will save your business a lot of money in energy bills over a year and even more beyond.
Good lighting contributes to employee happiness, productivity and health and safety also.
We install all types of commercial lighting, which includes
Commercial Electrical Inspections
Electrical condition reports (EICR) and PAT testing (portable appliance testing) are essential for workplace health and safety.
An Electrician can visit your premises at convenient times and undertake the necessary inspections. Once completed, the legal certifications are issued to prove your electrical system and appliances are safe for use by your employees.
