Electrical bonding refers to the important electrical safety measure where any service pipes such as gas, water and oil that are classed as extraneous are connected to the Main Earth Terminal of the electrical installation to remove the potential difference between exposed conductive parts and the extraneous pipework. 

Has your small job electrician gone AWOL?

The answer is no! 

I've been a bit slow with correspondence and not answering phone calls as swiftly as I should but there's good reason! I'm not on paternity leave after my first baby came 3 weeks early. 

Fear not! Your small jobs such as fuseboard upgrades, and replacement lights are still being carried out by our other electrician, Josh. He's been holding the fort whilst I've been catching up on sleep. 

The problem with cheap electrical installation condition reports.

I've been tied about what I should create a blog about and I had a couple of options lined up, one on LED lighting where I was going to talk about the benefits on replacing halogens for LED and talk a bit about how LED lights work with an LED driver, another idea was to talk about RCD protection and why upgrading your fuseboard to include RCBOs and possibly a surge protective device is a great thing to do.

This is why your electrician in Corsham has said you need RCD protection.

If you had an electrician in Corsham, or an electrician in Chippenham quoting for electrical works in your home, they may have mentioned that RCD protection is required to be installed for the works to comply with the current electrical regulations.

 But what's an RCD and what's the point of having it?

Take Care When Selecting an Electrician!!

Many Electricians in Bath and West Wiltshire are simply not interested in small electrical works. They want the choice jobs, and will drop you like a hot potato when a bigger, supposedly more lucrative, project comes in.

Others advertise as electricians having no qualifications.  They thrive on the basis that you don’t understand what they do and, as a result, overcharge for shoddy, and often dangerous, work.

I set up Watt & Co. Electrical in order to fill a gap in the domestic sector. I want to provide you with a quality service that provides you with exactly what you need from an electrician.
