How do you choose an electrician from Herne Bay or anywhere for that matter?? It seems that there is a lot of us out there; but how do you know who is going to be right for you?? Well…. We think a good place to start is by matching us to your personality. Sounds a bit random, but bear with me…… You see, we have to not only have all the right qualifications, be registered with an approved body such as Napit, have the right attitude to work, the right equipment etc etc but most importantly, (we feel), is that we make you feel comfortable; after all, we will be working in your home! Myself and Rob always treat people and their homes how we would like to be treated ourselves, this way the experience is a good one and everyone feels the benefit. Take a look at our checkatrade page to see what other people think.
We recently changed the existing energy hungry down lights for new LED low energy down lights for a customer in Herne Bay.The old installation had 20 x 50 watt bulbs, which needed replacing on a regular basis. These were not only expensive to run but also bulb changing became frustrating too! We have now replaced them with the new technology on the block… LED. They are only 10 watts each and don’t have any bulbs to replace!! What do you think?? Give us a call or drop us an email if you would like to find out more.
We have just recently replaced a fuse board for a new up to date version in Canterbury. A few questions that came up may be useful to you if you are considering the same thing… ‘How long will the electricity be off’? This will depend on the size of the fuse board itself but typically no longer than half a day. (Domestic customers).’What will it involve’? We carry out a series of tests throughout the property which will involve removing some of the accessories to check on the condition of things. (We are always very careful not to disturb any of the decoration and always ensure that no mess is left).’Will I get a certificate to show that this work has been carried out’? Yes of course, we are registered with Napit and all of our work that is required to be certificated under part P of the building regulations also carries a 6 year warranty.We are happy to discuss any further questions related to fuse board changes or any other work you may be considering.

We have recently had a few jobs where we have been asked to help rectify a fault with an RCD tripping out. I thought it may be useful to give some tips on things to try first; so here goes…. The first thing to do is switch off all the MCB switches (the switches at the fuseboard)and then try switching on the RCD switch (the one with the test button on it). Then if the RCD switch stays on try switching the MCB switches back on one at a time; when you get to the switch that takes the RCD out again, that is the circuit with the fault on it. The next stage is to go to that circuit and (if it’s a power circuit), unplug everything. Now try turning that MCB back on, if the RCD stays on, start plugging things back in until it trips again and there is your problem. This will not always be the case but it does seem to be the most common. We are always available if you need any further assistance of course. Let us know if this helps you or if you would like us to give advice on anything else.
Having explained the situation over the phone, they visited the same day at the time stated. Immediately resolved the issue of the reported fault with impedance test. Connected cooker and checked and resolved two other minor faults. Quote given for further work, which they have since carried out to the same high standard. It was rewarding to have a tradesman who was able to set my mind at rest, get on with the work at a fair and reasonable charge, at the price quoted, as unobtrusive as possible with the minimum amount of disruption.
