At this time of year many homeowners are tempted to indulge in a spot of DIY around the home and garden.
The warmer weather and brighter nights provide an excellent opportunity to tackle those niggly little jobs that we have put off throughout winter.
While many jobs are simple and can be tackled without fear of danger, some require a professional assistance.
That is especially true for any work involving electrics. Some people might be tempted to try smaller electrical jobs themselves but it can often end up a terrible mistake – especially if something goes wrong.
Dealing with electrics is dangerous and should be treated with due care and attention.
Carrying out DIY work or using an unregistered electrician can also be a false economy, which could end up costing thousands of pounds and a lot of hassle to put right.
A great way to make sure your home is in tip top shape and electrically safe is to employ an electrician registered with NICEIC.
They will be able to carry out a Periodic Inspection of your home and provide you with an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR). This is an up to date report on the current condition of the electrics in your home – much like an MOT.
They will also be able to carry out any electrical work that you might require around the home and ensure it is carried out safely and in accordance with the appropriate regulations.
