A domestic electrician is somebody who works within the domestic sector and often specialises in only domestic work. 

How a £10 Multi-Meter can save you a headache!

In an ideal world, everyone would use a a registered electrician to carry out any electrical work in your home but some people are keen to have a go themselves. A lot of call outs I get to DIY electrical work is from people who have tried to replace a light only for the light not to work, all the other lights don't work or every time you turn the light it in goes 'pop' and trips your fuse. 

5 things to consider before hiring a potential electrician.

Choosing an electrician, or any tradesman for that matter can be quite a daunting task. You want someone who's going to do the work they quoted for and someone who will treat your home with respect and this ultimately all boils down to trust. You need to be able to trust your electrician so with that in mind, whether you're thinking about having some bathroom spotlights installed or you need new mains powered smoke alarms or even a fuseboard upgrade, here are 5 things you should check before hiring an electrician.

What is a Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) unit?

Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) is a mechanical ventilation system that works by bringing fresh, filtered air into your home via ducting. Often just the one vent on your landing.

One of the main benefits of PIV systems is that they improve indoor air quality. By constantly pumping fresh, filtered air in to your home from outside, your air quality will be much better. The fresh air will help to reduce the concentration of pollutants and allergens in the air, making it easier to breathe which is great if you have asthma!

How to choose an electrician,

If you're having some electrical work carried out at your home in Bath or West Wiltshire, it is generally a good idea to hire a professional, registered electrician to perform the work. Electrical work can be dangerous and should only be performed by trained and qualified individuals (In the wiring regulations these are called 'skilled' people). A professional electrician will have the appropriate knowledge through specific training, skills, and tools to safely complete the work.

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.
