According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI), electrical problems in homes cause nearly 51,000 fires annually. They account for more than 500 deaths, 1,400 injuries and more than £900 million in property damage. These fires were caused by faulty installations. A lot of these would have been caused by three main reasons: overloading, incompetent installation (DIY) and poor maintenance.
We are a NICEIC accredited company. This certification proves that we have the knowledge and expertise to offer our clients a complete heating and hot water system package with a full electrical package. Whilst it is relatively easy to make an electrical circuit work, it is far more challenging to make the circuit work safely. To avoid the dangers that live electricity can create, it is essential that all electrical work is carried out by qualified experts.
Many people assume that when a socket works or a light switch turns on and off it’s working, however this is not the case. How do you know that the switch or light under a faulty condition will not give you an electrical shock or even kill someone who operates it? It is with safety in mind that we design your electrical systems incorporating the latest types of electrical isolation and safety devices.
Just like you have your car serviced, your electrical system also needs attention and checking over years. Connections come loose due to mechanical strain and wear as well as expansion and contraction caused by hot and cold temperatures. Cables also age and the insulation that protects you from electric shocks and fires becomes frail. It is for these reasons that we recommend you use qualified engineers to design and service your electrical systems.
