Acton

Acton is a district in the London Borough of Ealing in west London. It's 6.1 miles west of Charing Cross. At the 2011 census, Acton had a population of 62,480 - a 10 year increase of 8,791 people.

Acton means 'oak farm' or ''farm by oak trees', and derives from old English. It was originally an ancient village, and as London expanded it was absorbed in to the city. Since 1965, Acton has been part of the east of Ealing, but some sections of East Acton are inside the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and a small section of South Acton is within the London Borough of Hounslow. Acton is one of the places with the most stations bearing their name anywhere within the United kingdom, with seven stations including its name.

Central Acton is called the hub of commerce and retail on the former major road between London and Oxford, called the Uxbridge Road. The main road includes a great deal of inns, which date back to the late Tudor period as stopping places for travellers. Nowadays, the A40 dual carriageway is the key route from London to Oxford, and it bypasses central Acton. It still passes through East Acton and North Acton.

Acton is home to the largest housing estate in West London, named the South Acton estate, with roughly 2,000 homes and 5,800 residents. The region is presently in phase 2 of a major 15-year phased regeneration which involves virtually complete demolition of the current residential units and the construction of brand new and much more residences. This is most likely to boost its population further.

For most homeowners, rewiring a house is always a sore subject they’d prefer to avoid especially when they think of the expenses they’d have to incur or the mess and complexity that the project involves.

When a wire triggers a spark or a current overload, this can cause fire and the entire house may be down in ashes within a couple of minutes. Hence, one of the several reasons why house rewiring is just too important to ignore.

In this FAQ, we’re going to take you through the house rewiring process so as to ensure that your project is done to perfection. However, if you do not feel confident enough to pull this off, we’d strongly recommend you get in touch with a reliable electrical professional who can guarantee that a safe and effective work is done.

  • Firstly, you’d have to upgrade the main service panel to a minimum of 100 amps
  • Fit dedicated circuits in the service panel for all the home’s major appliances.
  • Allow for a space of about 6 to 8 feet between electrical outlets throughout the house in order to cut out the need to run extension cords which could be a fire hazard.
  • Install only three-prong type to avoid electrical shocks when fitting new outlets.
  • Using ground fault circuit interrupters, fit outlets in the bathrooms, kitchen as well as outdoors. These outlets will shut themselves out so as to prevent electrical shock when wet.
