Enough Sockets In Your Home?

 

Every year, over half of accidental domestic fires in the UK are caused by electricity. Most of these are caused by electrical products, either through misuse or faults. Imagine coming home to see that an overloaded socket has caused a fire, but the accident could have easily been prevented. In many of the older homes that we live in there are not enough sockets to meet our requirements, now that we use a number of different appliances on a daily basis. So, we overload them to the point in which it can be dangerous. Please give our experienced team a call on 07702 678402 so you can make an appointment and we can assess your property for extra sockets including USB integrated units.

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.t

Night Storage Heaters.

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.
