Ever considered Solar?

Doing your bit to help save the planet is now more important than ever and installing solar panels to your home is a great way to start. For starters it has the ability to reduce your electricity bill by a whopping 40%! Many get put off the idea due to the large set up cost but these are the gift that keeps on giving, allowing you to make savings for years to come. Contrary to popular belief Solar PV systems only need daylight to generate electricity, not sunlight; what’s not to love?

Preventing fuse box faults

Houses built in the 1960’s have fuse boxes that run on a mixture of fuse so the likelihood of problems occurring as a result are very high. If you are unsure if your fuse box needs replacing look to see if it has a wooden back or cast-iron switches; if this is the case call a member of our highly experienced team today to arrange a replacement. The longer the box is left the more potential damage it could do, you could need a partial rewire as a result of possible damage!

Making sure everything is in working order

Everyone uses some form of electrical appliances on a daily basis and whilst on the surface they seem to be working as they should, in reality that might be far from the truth. Small things such as faulty wiring in a plug socket can cause a fire if not checked regularly. To ensure you or anyone else in your household aren’t being put at any risk have one of our electricians come out to check any appliances so you do not have to worry.

PAT Testing put simply

PAT Testing is carried out on regularly used appliances to ensure that everything is in working order and there is no chance of them causing anyone harm. Any appliance that needs to be plugged in at the wall or a generator can be PAT tested. So, household items such as kettles or printers to larger more commercial items such as vending machines and power tools all qualify to be tested. If you are interested in this service, feel free to contact us to find out more information.

An alternative to conventional heating systems

Did you know there is an alternative to conventional heating systems? The heat pump system that our team can easily install into your home requires much less maintenance and produces little carbon dioxide. The system takes heat from the air then boosts the temperature of the accumulated air, this air can then be used to heat up water, radiators and under floor heating systems! They can even be used for air conditioning during the hotter months. This alternative to conventional systems will save you lots of money in the long run.

Dont leave it too late

With the year drawing to a close many leave major jobs to the new year, but this could mean it becoming more problematic. If your property is more than 30 years old it could still fitted with an old-fashioned ceramic style fuse-box. The older these become the more they are likely to trip out; and with Christmas around the corner this is not what you want in the middle of cooking the Christmas dinner! Have our team take a look to see if you need a fuse box change or alteration, partial or full rewire of your property, so you do not have worry more many years to come.

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.
