Stay Up-to-Date with Electrical Wiring Regulations
We understand the importance of staying current with the ever-evolving electrical wiring regulations (BS7671). As these regulations are periodically reviewed and updated, we undergo regular training to ensure compliance with the latest standards. However, we recognize that non-electricians may not have access to comprehensive courses explaining these changes. That's why we strive to bridge the gap by providing clear explanations of the latest amendments.
Upgrading to Meet New Regulations
With the latest amendments coming into effect in September 2022 after a 6 month grace period, it's crucial to assess older electrical installations for conformity. In some cases, upgrades may be necessary before any new work can take place. During a site visit, our electricians will fully explain any mandatory changes, ensuring you have a clear understanding of the requirements. To further assist you, our glossary provides detailed explanations of key terms related to electrical regulations.
New Build Electrics
If you're embarking on a new build or adding an extension to your existing property, our team is here to support you throughout the entire process. From the initial design phase to the completion of the project, we bring extensive experience and knowledge to ensure your electrical needs are met. Our goal is to provide guidance and advice to make your new build journey as smooth as possible.
Over time, electrical wiring naturally degrades. While rewiring is typically easier and more cost-effective when a property is empty, we can also handle rewiring projects in inhabited spaces. Before proceeding with rewiring, it's advisable to consider an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) to assess the overall state of the wiring. Our team can offer expert advice on the best approach to suit your specific situation.
Consumer Unit Replacement
Unless you have purchased a brand-new house, it is likely that your consumer unit may not comply with current regulations. Upgrading your consumer unit requires careful planning and a thorough testing of all circuits once the replacement is completed. Additionally, newer consumer units may have different dimensions, which should be taken into consideration, especially if your current unit is enclosed in a cupboard or tight space.

EICR for Comprehensive Insight
Electrical faults can go unnoticed or develop over time. Whether you're buying, selling, renting a property, or making changes, an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) offers valuable insights into the current condition of your wiring. Our expert electricians can conduct an EICR to identify any issues and provide recommendations for necessary repairs or improvements.
