Sparktacus offer a range of electrical services, from rewiring, lighting and heating to supply of consumer units/fuseboxes, testing and inspection, and telephone, data networks and AV. Contact us for further information.
Sooner or later every property needs to be rewired. All cables have a finite lifespan and in lots of cases there is simply inadequate provision of sockets and lighting. It’s also common to see poor quality, ad-hoc additions that have multiplied over the decades!
Talk to us about your electrics; our advice is free and we’ll always be honest with you.
Although often overlooked lighting is crucially important to the success of all projects. We can offer a well-designed lighting scheme that will add to any interior. A good lighting scheme can alter the mood or even function of a room and should draw on simple design principles that are easy to work with and understand. We’re confident that we can help you to create a beautiful and practical interior where lighting really adds an extra dimension.
There have been a lot of developments in electrical heating in the last few years. Electric heaters are available that look the same as conventional, ‘wet’ radiators and can be controlled very simply from a central timer exactly like gas central heating systems. Lots of properties currently using night storage systems can very easily be upgraded to a modern system. We supply and fit a wide variety of electric heating, please get in touch with us to find out more.
Consumer units/fuseboxes are the brains of your electrical system and it is crucial that they are up to date and contain at least one RCD. Believe it or not, a fuse doesn’t do much to prevent you or your family and pets getting an electric shock. An RCD does and we would always recommend that you have a modern dual-RCD consumer unit installed in your property.
It’s recommended that every domestic property is tested every 10 years. If the property is for the rental market the interval should be shorter or on change of tenancy. We believe that it’s important that all home owners and Landlords look after their electrics. Our test reports are written in plain English detailing what, if any, remedial works need to be carried out.
