Get Connected Electrical Contractors Ltd offer so much more than just garden lighting installations for domestic customers or commercial installations for our business clients. We also offer free advice on how to prevent electrical faults at your Banstead property. With the correct knowledge and help, you’ll be able to avoid calling an emergency electrician unless it is absolutely necessary; this could save you valuable time and money.
Below, we look at some of the problems you might encounter at your home or business premises in Banstead, and provide the best advice on what to do next:
Power Failure – Have you experienced a power failure in one or more rooms at your Banstead home or workplace? Providing it’s not a normal power cut affecting several properties or more in your neighbourhood, we recommend that you check the fuse box initially before turning to a traditional or emergency electrician.
An unexpected surge in power, such as a blown light bulb, may have caused a fuse to blow or a switch to trip in your power supply. Switch the fuse back on, and it should automatically restore power to the affected rooms. If your Banstead property is experiencing continuous power failures, you can call an electrician from our team on 01737 370869.
Flickering Lights – Flickering lights usually happen when home or business owners use the wrong bulb wattage. High wattage bulbs can cause problems as they draw more power, so check your bulb wattage first if you experience flickering, and change to a lower one if you need to. This will usually resolve the problem immediately.
If that doesn’t work, flickering could be the result of a poor connection and this means power won’t circulate properly around the bulb. If this is the case, contact Get Connected Electrical Contractors Ltd as we fix lighting faults for Banstead customers using safe working practices which comply with current NICEIC and Part P requirements.
Strange Smells – If a plug point is giving off a strange odour, take any plugs out immediately. The smell could be the result of faulty wiring and this causes your plug to burn internally. This type of issue is thankfully rare but can sometimes happen when using cheap electrical goods purchased at discount outlets, outdoor markets or car boot sales in Banstead.
We recommend that you use an electrician to PAT test your appliances to ensure they are in good working order. Call Get Connected Electrical Contractors Ltd today and we can make an appointment for an electrician to visit your Banstead home promptly.
Faltering Garden Lighting – If there seems to be a power issue with the garden lighting at your Banstead property, check the bulbs first before calling our electrical contractors. Bulb replacement will usually resolve any problems but if the fault is something other than that, please don’t try to check the wiring yourself as this could result in shock and injury.
We can send out an emergency electrician if you feel that the problem is urgent or, if you don’t feel the need for emergency work but would still like us to take a look at things, we can send out an electrician at your convenience. We ensure all garden lighting at your Banstead home or business is repaired safely and in compliance with industry guidelines.
