Due to the ever increasing demand on the electrical supply in your home we are regularly having to hire a ACKSEN data logger. It logs your power usage and lets us know whether you have enough power for that hot tub or 12KW shower that seem to be the latest craze. Keep safe, don't overload your mains. We see many fires caused by people using power they just haven't got OVERLOADED.
The top signs of overloaded circuits include flickering lights and frequently tripped breakers.
Your lights may waver when you turn on a high-powered device such as a vacuum or hair dryer. This shows you that the circuit is dangerously near full capacity.
Another side effect of high electrical demand is heat. The circuit breaker trips to prevent overheating that could cause a fire, but if you must frequently reset tripped breakers, your circuits are under constant strain. Over time, this can damage your wiring and eventually lead to a fire. Simon WallisCraig KavanaghJoshua Stewart
Electrical safety checks are mainly to prevent electrical fires - we are here to ensure your safety. IET recommend that all electrical installations are checked for safety every 5-10 years, with more regular checks required in specific premises.
We all must have our cars tested for safety on an annual basis but we never seem to test the safety of where we sleep. Unfortunately, lack of attention each year, along with alterations done by incompetent persons, is the cause of a large percentage of electrical fires each year. Your safety is our priority and we endeavour to deliver complete satisfaction at all times.
