Replacement of faulty light fittings and sockets
Whether you are looking to replace a faulty light fitting or update an old with new, to give a room a lift, we can install the fitting for you.
We will ensure all installations are undertaken in compliance with the latest BS7671 Wiring Regulations.
Consumer units (fuse boxes) replacement
The consumer unit which was known as the fusebox controls and isolates all the electrical circuits in your home. Over time, modifications are made to a home, such as a new kitchen or bathroom and additional electrical sockets. The consumer unit can become outdated when it is no longer able to carry the load and amount of circuits it was designed for when it was originally installed. This can leave your home at risk of fire.
The latest BS7671 regulations stipulate that all circuits must be protected by an RCD (Residual Circuit Device). Many homes don’t have an RCD, and this is crucial as it protects your home from fires and you from electric shocks.
We supply and fit 17th Edition consumer units, which come with a 12-month warranty. Once the work is complete you will be given an Electrical Installation Certificate to verify that an approved electrician has installed it.
