Electrical work

Electrical work on your home can be anything, but it’s imperative to only use a professional engineer registered with a trading body. This guarantees their competency and ensures your safety.

After all, your home’s electrics can be very dangerous if wrongly connected, so to avoid any accidents or faults you need to get the basics right and choose a reputable electrician.

Whether you want a home electrics inspection, need the system rewired or you’re looking to add another socket to your network, an electrician will be able to complete the work quickly and efficiently.

Leaving a problem too long could cost you hundreds, or even thousands of pounds extra later down the line, so ensure to have faults looked at as soon as they arise. Regular inspections will also catch hidden errors before they worsen.

Common reasons to hire an electrician

There are a number of reasons that you would require an electrician and this would include:

  • Rewiring your home

Every now and then homes need to be rewired to improve the safety and update the lines. Properties should be rewired every 25 years. You may also need to rewire your home if the RCD keeps tripping or the fuses blowing. Rubber insulated wiring is also common in much older properties and this should be upgraded too.

  • Adding a new line or socket

Often when you move home or change your room around, you’ll need to add a new electrical line or socket to fit your appliances into place. An electrician will run the new line to where you need it, so your plans aren’t hindered.

  • Electrical testing and inspections

A regular inspection will ensure your system is safe and there’s not a hidden problem waiting to become a fault. Testing your electrics will reduce the chances of you paying out even more money on repairs later down the line and your network will be operating safely.

Quotes for electrical work

Electrical work can cover a range of scenarios, and qualified electricians will be able to assist you with anything that needs to be done.

Any work must be carried out by a competent electrician, registered with a professional body such as the NAPIT, whilst also being Part P qualified.

Electrician FAQs

How much will a new fuse box cost?

Fuse box prices will vary and a periodic inspection should be carried out first. However, domestic fuse boxes cost an average of £460. A qualified electrician will advise if yours needs to be replaced and it's always a good idea to obtain a number of quotes before committing to this.

Is electric heating suitable for my home?

There are a range of variables that will determine which heating system is best for your home, such as the level of insulation and size of rooms. However, electric heating is suitable for many homes. Electric boilers are very compact and do not need a flue. Underfloor heating is effective at heating rooms of any size.

Can I fit electrics in my garden shed?

It might be possible to fit electrics in your shed, depending on where it is and what it’s made of. You should get in touch with a qualified electrician to find out whether it’s possible. Never attempt to run electrical cable from your house to an outbuilding!

Should I use a certified electrician to install my electric heating?

It’s always recommended to use a certified electrician to carry out electrical work. They can self-certify that their work meets building regulations. While some parts of electric heating systems can be installed as a DIY project, the thermostat and other control wiring legally must be installed by a certified electrician. There are a range of competent persons schemes in operation.

Do I need a Part P registered electrician?

Home electrics can be extremely dangerous and it’s very unwise to try and carry out repair work or maintenance yourself without the necessary knowledge and skill. Therefore we would always recommend using a Part P registered electrician at all times.

Why would I need a new fuse box?

There are a few reasons you may need a new fuse box. This would include: The box being old or out-of-date, Insufficient or no RCD protection, Holes or gaps in the casing, Not compliant with legal specifications. An electrical survey will ascertain if one is needed.

What are the benefits of electric heating?

Electric heating has several benefits. It can be paired with renewable electricity generation, so the electricity used to heat your home will be sustainable. Underfloor heating is very efficient and can be cheaper than comparable gas or oil fired systems.
