Did you Know……….

In the UK there are approximately 70 deaths and 350,000 serious injuries and 21,000 fires caused by electrical accidents every year. This is in addition to the 2.5 million householders a year that receive a mains voltage electric shock. A large proportion of these incidents are due to electrical work being carried out by untrained people.

A qualified electrician must spend four years training on site as apprentice, under supervision of an experienced electrician while also completing technical courses at collage.                                          

We take pride on our high standards and believe that quality products, professional workmanship and fair prices are the key to our success.

Remember Electricity is dangerous if not handled carefully.

Most people have extension leads in their homes, using 4-way bar adaptors to increase the number of appliances that they can plug into a wall socket.

However, although there is space to plug in four appliances, this does not mean it is always safe to do so.

You can avoid overloading sockets and risk of fire by following this simple advice:

  • Check the current rating of the extension lead before plugging appliances into it. Most are rated at 13 A, but some are rated at only 10 A or less - the rating should be clearly marked on the back or underside of the extension lead. If not, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions
  • Never overload an extension lead by plugging in appliances that together will exceed the maximum current rating stated for the extension lead. This could cause the plug in the wall socket to overheat and possibly cause a fire.
  • Use our overload calculator (below) to check if you’re exceeding the maximum load
  • For an indication only of the current ratings of commonly-used domestic appliances - check out our information about Amps and Watts
  • Only use one socket extension lead per socket and never plug an extension lead into another extension lead
  • Use a multi-way bar extension lead rather than a block adaptor, as this will put less strain on the wall socket. Some block adaptors do not have a fuse, which increases the risk of overloading and fire
  • Consider having additional sockets installed if you regularly rely on extension leads and adaptors - and use aregistered electrician to carry out the installation work
  • Check regularly for the following danger signs:
    - a smell of hot plastic or burning near an appliance or socket
    - sparks or smoke coming from a plug or appliance
    - blackness or scorch marks around a socket or plug, or on an appliance
    - damaged or frayed leads
    - coloured wire inside leads showing at the plug or anywhere else
    - melted plastic on appliance casings or leads
    - fuses that blow or circuit-breakers that operate for no obvious reason


Use our online calculator to check that you are not overloading the sockets in your home:

Electrical Installation Condition Reports

You cannot see electricity. Cables are usually hidden inside our walls, and consumer units are often hidden in cupboards, so it is not surprising that we forget to check the condition of our electrical installation for damage or wear and tear.

Faulty and old wiring is one of the main causes or electrical fires in the home. You can reduce the risk of a fire by checking the condition of your cables, switches, sockets and other accessories regularly.

How old is my electrical installation?

Clear signs that can help you tell the age of equipment in the electrical installation in your home include:

  • Fixed cables coated in black rubber (stopped being used in the 1960s).
  • Fixed cables coated in lead or fabric (used before the 1960s).
  • A fuse box with a wooden back, cast iron switches, or a mixture of fuse boxes (used before the 1960s).
  • Older round pin sockets (or light switches), braided flex hanging from ceiling roses, brown (or black) switches, or sockets mounted in or no skirting boards (used before the 1960s).
  • Light switches on the walls or in bathrooms (used before the 1960s).

However old your electrical installation is, it may get damaged and will suffer from wear and tear. So you should get an electrician to check its condition at least every 10 years or when you move into a new property.

What is the aim of a condition report?

The five main aims of a condition report are:

  1. Record the results of the inspection and testing to make sure the electrical installation is safe to be used until the next inspection (following any work needed to make it safe)
  2. Find any damage and wear and tear that might affect safety, and report it
  3. Find any parts of the electrical installation that do not meet the IEE Wiring Regulations
  4. Help find anything that may cause electric shocks and high temperatures
  5. Provide and important record of the installation at the time of the inspection, and for inspection testing in the future.
