Common Electrical Issues in the Home

Flickering Lights

 

If changing the light bulb or fuse in the switch doesn’t alleviate the problem, flickering lights could be due to a fault with the wiring or power connection. We recommend contacting electrical contractors who are NICEIC approved to investigate the issue. At Electricare Ltd, we provide Tenterden clients with a domestic electrician or commercial electrician to diagnose the problem and fix it safely.

Exposed Wiring

 

Sockets and power outlets which are overloaded or have plugs with exposed wires are fire hazards, which will fail Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICR) required for an up-to-date electrical certification. Electrical contractors can offer advice and carry out any rewiring that needs to be done during renovations at your Tenterden home or refurbishments in the workplace. An inspection also needs to be conducted if clients are moving property.

Energy Consumption

 

Tenterden clients may notice a significant loss of energy which is reflected in the amount of electricity usage in their monthly or quarterly bills. A domestic electrician can offer advice, such as upgrading heating and hot water systems with a new electric boiler installation. Electric boilers are extremely energy-efficient as they heat water quickly and the central heating system can be controlled with a timer or thermostat to limit waste. A commercial electrician can install energy-saving lighting of shops and offices too.

Power Loss and Faulty Circuit Breakers

 

Properties in Tenterden experiencing a loss of power or circuit breakers tripping should switch off the main power supply to the building immediately. This is strongly recommended to prevent any potential fire hazards that can spark from faulty grounding connections or overheated circuits. A commercial electrician or domestic electrician will safely search for faults and restore any damaged or deteriorated electrical components on your behalf.

Hot Sockets and Switches

 

If you notice sockets or fixtures which feel hotter than usual, these should be unplugged and checked as soon as possible by electrical contractors. This can be the result of defective or worn wiring in older appliances. Companies in Tenterden should have their power outlets inspected by a commercial electrician to keep any electrical certification up-to-date and maintain the safety of their employees.
