Our team of NAPIT accredited test and inspection engineers are highly skilled in both tracing and rectifying faults in the home as quickly as possible.
Portable appliance testing (PAT) is the term used to describe the examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use. Most electrical safety defects can be found by visual examination but some types of defect can only be found by testing.
Immersion repairs and changes
Our team are able to test and diagnose faults with your immersion heaters offering a quick repair or even a complete replacement of the heating element if need be.
A new law commonly known as Lot 20 was introduced to the UK in January 2018. It’s a new energy efficiency regulation that is having a dramatic effect on the way we heat our homes.
Lot 20 relates to local space heaters and includes storage heaters, electric radiators, radiant heaters and underfloor heating. We’re still able to repair older models but in some cases, parts may now be out of production. If you rent a property out and need to improve your EPC energy efficiency rating (must be a minimum of D) then installing one or more of these new heaters would definitely help.

Test and inspections
Sadly each year, around 70 people are killed and 350,000 are seriously injured because of electrical faults in the home. We recommend that every home should have a regular EICR check to ensure your electrics are safe.
An Electrical Inspection Condition Report(EICR)is a thorough test and inspection of all the fixed wiring and accessories in a property, much like servicing a boiler, or an MOT for a car, the electrics in a residential building need to be checked regularly for any signs of wear or deterioration.
In most cases the testing takes between 3-4 hrs and should be conducted once every five years.

Consumer unit upgrades
Consumer units a.k.a ‘fuse boxes’ or ‘fuse boards’ often fail to meet the latest safety standards set by the HSE. If your home has re-wireable fuses or lacks RCD protection then it may be time to consider an upgrade. The latest units are fire proof, clearly labelled and convenient to re-set following a trip and come with rcd protection as standard. An RCD, or residual current device, is a life-saving device which is designed to prevent you from getting a fatal electric shock if you touch a live bare wire.
Relocation of sockets
One of the main benefits of electric radiators is the effectiveness of the warmth they produce. As soon as you switch them on, they heat the surrounding air.They convert every watt of electricity they draw into usable heat, making them 100% efficient at point of use. Other benefits include;
Accurate temperature control
No carbon monoxide risks
Better heat management
With some models you can even control your heating from your phone
The right type of security lighting can often be used to deter or detect intrusions or other criminal activity on your home. With many different designs available we’re sure we can find the right style to suit you.
Power showers have a pump to boost the water flow, meaning they deliver more through the shower head compared with non-pumped versions. Power showers work in the same way as mixer showers in that they combine water from both the cold and hot water supplies. They’re particularly useful if your home has low water pressure.
Smoke and fire alarm installations
Every year the fire and rescue service is called to over 600,000 fires which result in over 800 deaths and over 17,000 injuries. About 50,000 (140 a day) of these are in the home and kill nearly 500 and injure over 11,000, many which could have been prevented if people had an early warning and were able to get out in time. In fact you are twice as likely to die in a house fire that has no smoke alarm than a house that does. A smoke and/or fire alarm system could help save your home and the lives of you and your family.
