Below is just an idea of how we can improve your electrics.
ADDITIONAL ELECTRICAL SOCKETS
Trailing extension leads across the floor?
Double adaptors plugged into double adaptors?
Could you do with an extra socket? Or do you need to upgrade an existing one?
Our electricians have many years of experience and are able to fix most problems on the first visit. We can resolve your electrical socket issues, from updating fixtures in your living room or kitchen to performing any other electrical upgrades you may require.
Too few electrical sockets can be a big problem especially in today’s technological world with mobile phones to charge and internet routers. The use of extension cables should only ever be seen as a short-term solution and they can even be dangerous if not used correctly. Just as broken sockets, switches, receptacles and wiring can be dangerous and lead to potential fire hazards so can an overloaded socket.
We are able to install any type of household electrical power socket or switch you require:
- Wall, floor and speciality switches, appliances and sockets
- Heavy duty appliance sockets
- Weather-proof outdoor sockets
- Dryer and appliance sockets
- Pop–up electrical sockets
- Dimmers and lighting switches
- Recessed sockets and lighting
Many homes and buildings were built before the newer electrical appliances and accessories were even invented. If you are in any doubt it is important to upgrade your systems for safety.
FIXED APPLIANCE CIRCUITS
A new appliance can be a great addition to your home, adding more comfort and convenience. What should you do if there is no connection or plug available for that appliance? Or maybe there is a plug but not enough power.
For this situation, you need a new circuit. Installing a new circuit is a complex task and should only be performed by licensed, skilled electricians like us.
Does your circuit breaker keep tripping when you turn on your oven, washing machine, tumble dryer or air conditioner? Are you sure you have enough dedicated circuits for your electrical needs? Do you even know how many electrical circuits there are in your house?
When you haven’t got have the correctly rated dedicated circuit, an appliance may draw more current than the circuit can handle causing the breaker switch to trip.
Safety regulations set forth by the National Electrical Code (NEC) state that “fixed appliances should have their own dedicated circuit.”
A dedicated circuit is so called because it is meant to provide power to one specific appliance. The number of dedicated electrical circuits needed will vary from one property to the next.
If your property has fewer dedicated circuits than it needs, this can easily cause wiring to overheat and the insulation around the wire to breakdown or melt. Once insulating barriers around the wire has deteriorated, the current passing through it is no longer safe, and can overheat and ignite flammable materials within the wall leading to an electrical fire which can give off poisonous fumes as well as the danger of the fire itself.
It can be seen then that having an overloaded circuit can be a real danger that may cause the system to continually trip circuit breakers or blow fuses and could eventually a serious fire if not resolved early enough.
Many home appliances and machines in your kitchen, home gym and garage could benefit from individual circuits.
The following appliances should ideally have dedicated circuits:
- Fixed air conditioner
- Electric car charging point
- Electric stove
- Electric water heater
- Heat pump
- Hot tub
- Sump pump device
- … and many more electrical appliances
What to do if you have fewer circuits to accommodate all of your appliances?
