Safe working electrics are essential in all properties, so when things go wrong, it’s important to have an expert at hand to get things back up and running. If you’d like to know more about our general electrical services, here’s our guide to some of the most frequently asked questions we receive.

What’s covered by general electrical services?

General electrical services cover a range of solutions to improve the suitability, functionality, safety and compliance of your electrical systems. This includes electrical installations, upgrades, repairs, testing and maintenance work. From handling wiring and lighting projects to troubleshooting electrical faults and completing safety checks, our qualified electrical contractors keep homes and businesses powered.

What are the risks of DIY electrical work?

Carrying out your own electrical work has significant risks and is strongly discouraged. Electrical systems are intricate and need to be safely navigated, or it can lead to electrical shocks, fires or property damage. You may even violate building codes or compromise the validity of your property insurance.

Are your electrical contractors qualified?

Do you offer emergency electrical services?

We offer emergency fault finding, treating cases with the utmost urgency if there are safety risks or you’ve had a complete power outage, which can affect the daily operations and safety of both homes and businesses. When we arrive at your property, we’ll perform a thorough electrical inspection to understand what’s happened, diagnose the fault and complete repairs.

What types of electrical testing are there?

Electrical testing can identify potential issues, ensure your electrics comply with the latest standards and help maintain system health. Common types of electrical tests include fault diagnostics, Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICRs) and electrical safety certificates. Regular testing can prevent electrical problems while safeguarding the longevity of your systems.

Do you offer new lighting design?
