Choosing an electrician can sometimes feel like a minefield. For those of us outside of the world of wires and circuit breakers, the various terminology and qualifications electricians use can sound like complete gibberish.
There are many electrician's out there, you only have to do a search on Google to find your local Electrician, but have you ever questioned their knowledge and experience? The answer is probably no, right? After all, they are qualified as an electrician, they should know everything about electrics, right? Wrong.
You must do your homework before selecting a tradesperson, sadly...
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...
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?
With Christmas just around the corner this is an expensive time of year for us all and the last thing we need is a hefty bill on top of everything because we had to call out a tradesperson over the Christmas period.
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.
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.
Hi and Welcome to the Blog of Your Local Bromley and Bexley Electrician.
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.
