                                                                                                                     Is Your Fuse Box Up-To-Date? 

 

Unbelievably fuse boxes are often overlooked when purchasing a property, especially in an older property. It is extremely important you know where to locate the fuse box in your home. If your fuse box has a mixture of fuses, cast iron switches or has a wooden back, it may mean that it dates back to before the 1960s and, therefore, will need replacing. If your property is more than 30 years old, it may need a partial rewire if new building works are to be carried out. Our experienced team at Whitehall Electrical can carry out a full assessment of your property and advise you accordingly, if the fuse box needs replacing or a full or partial rewire is needed. Please do not delay in contacting Whitehall Electrical today.

Light Up The Dark Evenings!

 

Summer is over and autumn is now here and it won’t be long until the dark evenings are upon us. With this in mind, now might be the time to install some outside lighting. This could be security lighting for the front and back of your home, lighting for pathways and driveways or decorative lighting for your garden, decking or even a fish pond. It is essential that electrical wiring is installed safely outside and is checked regularly, as it will be exposed to the elements. Whatever your external lighting needs may be, why not give Whitehall Electrical a call and book an appointment? Our experienced team can sort out the electrics for you.

Safety In The Home For The Elderly.

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Electrical safety is, of course, extremely important in every home, but is often overlooked in the homes of the elderly. Many of these homes do not meet basic electrical safety standards and may have, for example, out of date wiring, fuse boxes, sockets and plugs, and may be missing a smoke alarm. Whitehall Electrical Ltd can carry out a full safety assessment of the property and, if there are any safety issues, can carry out and complete any works which will be needed, ensuring the occupants of the property stay safe and independent.

Night Storage Heaters.


Night storage heaters were very popular back in the 1970s and 1980s. Most of us remember them as ugly, not particularly economical and that they came in one standard size. Night storage heaters have now been brought right into the 21st century and they look great. They can be installed quickly and easily, coming in a range of slimline sizes and they can save you up to 27% on your electricity bill. Now may be the time to think differently about night storage heaters, especially as electricity prices are rising. Please do not hesitate to contact Whitehall Electrical Ltd for further information.

Sufficient Sockets In Your Home?

The electrical sockets in our homes play an essential role in the day to day running of our appliances, giving power to almost every electrical device we use, from fridges and cookers, to portable gadgets such as vacuum cleaners and mobile phones. With more appliances being purchased, the greater the need for multiple sockets. Older homes tend not to have enough sockets, and there is a tendency to overload them with multiple extension leads or double adapters, which could be a potential fire hazard. It is far safer to have extra sockets added to your home. Our team at Whitehall Electrical Ltd have the knowledge and expertise to carry out the installation of additional sockets. Don’t delay! Please give us a call today.
