Protective Bonding

So this week has seen a couple of jobs that included installing new protective bonding in customers homes.

My customers did not know what is was or that it even existed until their boiler engineer told them they needed to have it when carrying out an annual service. Once we had spoke about it, they realised the importance and one customer was actually astounded that no one had ever told her about protective bonding before.

I am sure there are lots of local residents that are in the same position it may be time for your Local Electrician to explain to you a little more...

Earthing in Your Property

Hi and welcome to your local electricians blog 

This last week has been a strange week, the snow has made travelling around Bexley and Bromley some what difficult, we still managed OK and thankfully didn't have to delay a single job due to weather!! 

So whilst getting around at a snails pace I have had a few conversations this week with different people about the same subject.

The topic was earthing, what is it and why is it needed?  

Protect Your Home with Security Lighting

It has been a while since I have written a Blog, as some of you may know we have updated our website so we have been busy with that, let me know your thoughts by the way.

This week I wanted to talk about outdoor lighting as it is this time of year that we have many customers calling wishing to have their security lights replaced or checked for functionality, or simply upgrade their outdoor lights.

Celebrating Nurses Day

Nurses Day is being celebrated on Friday 12th May in the U.K. Nursing staff are the superheroes of health care. They're there when needed most, changing lives with their unique set of skills.

We wanted to celebrate Nurses' Day to give something back to our servicemen and women by offering a massive 20% of all electrical works for serving members of our NHS, police, firemen and women and ambulance staff.

Electrical Work in the Garden

Spring is around the corner, the weather is improving, time to start opening the garden for the summer.

 

Gardens and garden lighting in particular are now just as important to many homeowners as the interior of their home. However, when lighting up an outside area it is important to ensure it is installed professionally and safely. NICEIC recommend that you should always use a registered electrician to carry out any work so it is safe for use.

 

SAFETY TIPS FOR THE GARDEN

 

Are You Spending Un-Necessarily on Bulbs?

Welcome to my blog, this week I would like to talk about the benefits of LED Lighting and how simple it is to save money and replace your lights for LED.

 

If you have a home with lots of spotlights you will know how frequently the halogen lamps can blow, normally leaving 2 options:

 

1 – keep changing them and have a large stock of spares.

 

2 – leave them and then get frustrated as the number increases.
