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.

About UK

Energy Performance of Houses

The below information demonstrates the energy performance of homes in Uk. Energy ratings vary from A to G, with A being the most energy-efficient and G being the least efficient. The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating comes into play heavily when attempting to sell your household, as possible buyers will see what amount they're probably going to be paying for their heating bills. House upgrades such as insulation help to drastically improve a home's EPC rating.
