New installations

The flip-side of new installations if your buildings wiring is getting a little past it, it may be better value for money to completely rewire, rather than to patch up here and there, as you go along. We are experts at locating and removing obsolete wiring installations and replacing them with new ones that meet all current BS7671 wiring regulations.

Additional socket and lighting points

With so many appliances and gadgets needing their share of the electricity these days, it’s easy to find yourself with insufficient power or lighting points to operate them. While extension leads and plugs can be a tempting quick fix, we recommend entrusting your local electricians to install brand new sockets and light points, as a far safer alternative.

Tests and inspections

While our team of local electricians are experts at installations, we are also fully qualified and certified to perform official inspections on domestic, business, and industrials properties. This includes your electrical installations, as well as fire alarms, lightning and surge protection systems, portable appliances, and emergency lighting.

Electric heating

As well as lighting, power, and interior control, we also install electric heating systems for those clients who favour over gas central heating. Call us today for more information.

A popular choice among our customers are Smart Home systems, whereby all the various electrical appliances, including lighting and heating, are operated by an App control.
