Alternative to Fossil Fuel Heating this Autumn

Not many know that Solar Heating will save you serious money in the long run. Much like Solar PV Systems you are using sunlight which is completely free. After the installation you will get the money back on what you save from switching to Solar Heating. As well as your heating bill going down your carbon footprint will be reduced. There may also be tax incentives if you use renewable energy technology. In addition you do not need to get permission to have them installed so there really isn’t anything in your way from having them fitted.

Solar, So Good.

Did you know that having Solar PV systems installed to your home or property could cut your electricity bill by 40%? Many shy away from the idea of installing them due to the set up cost but in the long terms you get the money back from what you have saved on electricity and more. In addition they only need daylight to generate electricity, not constant sunlight like many people think. Fossil fuel led heating is becoming more expensive and this will continue as these fuels diminish. Many solar systems are also adding value to homes throughout the UK as residents want to future proof their homes. If you would like to save lots of money, then please call our team today.

Is your fuse box up to date?

When buying your property did you check to see where the fuse box is or if it is in perfect working order? Many home buyers don’t and don’t know what damage it could be potentially causing. Fuse boxes installed in the 1960’s will need replacing as quick as possible as they often have a mixture of fuses, a tell tale sign is a wooden back or cast iron switches. In addition if the property you own is over 30 years old the house may need to be partially rewired due to the fuse box. Can you afford to wait to get this checked out? Its always better to be safe than sorry.

Don't wait until it is too late

Many of those in the older generation crave to keep their independence, but in the process forget to check the little things are working as they should. For example, plug sockets or fuses that seem to be working perfectly may have an underlying problem that could potentially cause harm. That is why our highly qualified team of electricians always keep up to date with the UK Safety Standards and can check appliances accordingly. So, don’t wait until it is too, get them checked.  

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               19/07/19

What is PAT Testing?

PAT or Portable Appliance Testing is a routine check to see whether your appliances could have faults that may later cause harm to you or someone in your place of work. You may not think any of your appliances need to be tested however anything from kettles, lamps or portable computer equipment may have an electrical fault that is unknown. It is better to be safe than sorry, call our team now for more information.
