Making a property electrically safe and compliant is more important than ever in today’s environment. Every year, the British government implements a slew of new laws aimed at making the country a safer place to live. We at The Electrician Swansea understand that it’s up to the average person to stay on top of the latest legislation and make the necessary adjustments to their daily routines.
Achieved NICEIC status
You need to guarantee that your home is safe for your tenants. So you have a legal obligation to ensure that the individual doing the work on the property is properly qualified. Our Swansea electricians are NICEIC-certified. This means that we are the best in the business when it comes to all of your electrical needs. From a simple light fixture to a complete home rewire. Also, in addition to being NICEIC certified, our electricians are properly insured and periodically re-evaluated. As a result, choosing our fully qualified electricians is the safest method to go about any task. Anyone who takes an NICEIC course will learn from the best in the field. This ensures that they will be able to perform all kinds of electrical work in any setting.
Alarms to detect smoke
The electrical Swansea team can assist you with the design, installation, and verification of smoke alarms, one of the most critical components of a fire-safe home. Landlords are required by law to have mains-wired smoke alarms in every room that is used by renters. This is in addition to heat sensors in the kitchens of their properties. In Swansea, we’ve installed a wide variety of smoke alarms, so you can count on us for a custom solution.
A rewiring service is advised for older homes that haven’t been rewired in the last 25 years to protect the safety of everyone who lives in the house. Bad wiring isn’t electrically safe and can be harmful. Your fuse box should be upgraded as well if you’re doing renovations, as the added energy load will put a strain on the lines. Rewiring a three-bedroom property in Swansea typically costs £2,500 to £5,000. If you pay this fee, we’ll do everything from socket repositioning to data cabling to electrical rewiring. But in the long term, rewiring your home can save you money on your electricity bill by improving your home’s overall energy efficiency. Our rewiring service includes the use of energy-efficient bulbs. So this will make your home even more energy-efficient and save you money in the long run.
Testing for EICR and PAT
Faulty electronics are responsible for half of all home fires in the United Kingdom according to an estimate (LP, 2020). Testing the EICR and PAT in a house will reveal whether or not any fixed wiring, electric installations or mobile electrical equipment is in good working order. Then every five years or before each new tenancy, landlords have legal requirements. These are to safeguard the safety of their tenants by undertaking an EICR and PAT test. We can give all the appropriate certificates that landlords need to distribute to their tenants and other relevant bodies. This makes it easy for them to meet their legal obligations through these tests.
