fault finding

Using the correct types of cable

As electricians, we need to properly design a circuit and use materials that are suitable for it's location. Regulations change which means a few years ago the circuit may have been designed differently. A common difference is the use of grey PVC cable for outside wall lights i.e. decorative lights or flood lights. You'll often see a small amount of grey cable coming straight out of the wall and in to the back of a light. 

Have you ever upgraded your house?

A lot of us these days upgrades our phones every year or 2. Upgrades our tablets, laptops, TV's cars etc but we never consider upgrading our homes.

 

Many older houses still only have 1 single or 1 double socket per bedroom. Too few sockets in kitchens and lounges. I see far too often people using an extension lead plugged in to an extension lead simple because of a lack of sockets. This has a chance of overloading your socket causing it to burn out. A relatively easy fix, but is a potential fire worth it?

 

Outdoor lighting

sing a good, reputable, local electrician who takes pride in their workmanship often means you won't have any problems with your electrical installation. This becomes even more relevant when it comes to outdoor lighting. Many times I've come across outside lights with water ingress that will cause half the house to lose power when they trip the RCD.

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.
