Fuseboard upgrades

New fuseboard

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?

 According to Electrical Safety First,

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?

 

Why you should use a registered electrician

Registered electricians join a 'competent person scheme', there are a few out there (I'm part of STROMA) but they all do the same thing. Registered electricians get assessed yearly by their scheme operator. We have to prove the work we are doing is safe and meets current regulations and, among other things, we have to prove we have all relevant insurances and documents to safely carry out 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.
