Here are a few scenarios when you should call a competent electrician.
Your lights keeping going out or fuses are being blown regularly.
For either of these problems we advise you call us to check your electrics as there could be a dangerous fault in one of your circuits that could lead to a fire in your home.
You are tripping over extension cables and you are using multi-plug extensions at every socket. Overloading a socket can cause fire so be safe and call us to install some new sockets.
New Lighting. If you have just bought some beautiful new lights but have discovered fitting them is more complicated than fitting a light shade. Call an electrician to fit your new lights to ensure you don’t electrocute yourself and that they are fitted safely and correctly.
Bathroom Electrics. If you want to hang a mirror that has lights, fit a shaver point, or install a new electric shower always employ a electrician. when working with electrics in a place with water. You don’t want to run the risk of electrocution either during fitting or when having your first shower!
Do you find your lights flicker or dim when you switch on another appliance eg a hairdryer or food mixer? Don’t just ignore this, it could be a warning of a bigger, more dangerous problem with your electrics.
You smell burning plastic or see smoke coming from an appliance or socket after they have been switched off.
You live in a property over 25 years old.
Electrical safety laws have become far more stringent in recent years. If your property is old and hasn’t had the electrics checked for over 10 years, or is now over 25 years old, then it is probably time you had your fuse board and electrics checked.
Increase in theft in your area
Installing motion sensor lights around your property can prevent crime and has the added benefit of allowing you to see clearly when arriving home at night.
Wi-Fi speed is slow in some rooms
Do you find you have to sit beside the router to get fast download speeds? This problem can be resolved by installing data cabling in your home.
