Is your electrician actually registered for the work they carry out?

Who's ever used the electrical competent person website before?

It can be tricky choosing an electrician for your electrical work and you should always do your due diligence. The electrical competent person website is an easy place to check if your electrician is actually registered for the work they're carrying out. Things like fuseboard upgrades are notifiable work and you must use a registered electrician to carry out this work. 

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. 

5 Tips for choosing an electrician in Corsham

Are you looking for tips for hiring an electrician? How do you find a high quality electrician with so many out there?

In this article, explore what to look for when hiring an electrician.

Tip 1 - Local recommendations

As an electrician a lot of my work comes from word of mouth and it does for a lot of other trades too. Ask around for recommendations so you have a few local electricians to pick from.

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.

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?

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.
