It is usual never to think of an electrician until he’s needed. Nowadays, we all depend on a constant supply of electricity and would be really taken aback if there was a problem with one of the components on which we rely. When the kettle, or coffee pot, goes on the blink, we suddenly feel a rush of panic. Have we enough cash to buy a new one, or shall we call the electrician to solve the problem? How much will it cost? How long can we last without that all important caffeine injection? If the lighting suddenly goes out, sure, we can check the fuse box, but what if it keeps tripping. You know there’s something wrong and an electrician will be required.
Now, another problem presents itself. Who shall we call? Where do I fine his number? How can I tell if he is competent to tackle the job? The best person to call is a fully qualified electrician, one who has done an apprenticeship and has the credentials at hand to back them up. He will also be an approved NIC and EIC Contractor. He will listen to your requirements and advise you as to getting the job done within the safe standards of the industry. A good electrician will quote you a price for the job and, once employed, will crack on with it and not waste time. Once completed, you can be assured that the job has been correctly carried out and is safe.
Finding a registered electrician is now less difficult than in years gone by. Ten or more years ago, being sure of their capabilities would be unlikely, and word of mouth would normally have been the only way. Nowadays, an electrician has to be a member of a special company whose job it is to regulate UK Electricians, in that they must have attended a proper and recognised training course and be certified to a strict standard.
In this day and age customer’s safety is at the top of the agenda, along with that of the tradesman; the cowboy has been weeded out. Of course, some guys will profess to be certified and have undergone the required training, so the customer should always ask to view the appropriate documentation to confirm his expertise. Never employ an electrician who has cold called as electricians with the proper qualifications are always too busy to canvass for work.
You can be assured that Chris Selby, of CS Electrical, is worth employing; he is registered with NICEIC, which is a leading voluntary regulatory body for the electrical contracting industry. NICEIC has been assessing the electrical competence of electricians for over fifty years and currently maintains a roll of over 26,000 registered contractors. Their members are regularly assessed and their work is checked against the IEE Wiring Regulations BS 7671 as well as other standards.
By employing CS Electrical, you will not only have found a fully qualified and time served electrician, you will finish up with a first class piece of work that is both safe for the occupants and the property.
A householder is soon alerted to leaking gas as a result of its smell and it is rather evident when a water leak develops, but a malfunctioning item of electrical equipment may only be obvious when it is touched, causing the individual to experience a serious shock and in the most unfortunate case, loss of life. It is vitally important therefore, to engage the professional services of a properly qualified electrician, like, for example, CS Electrical of Newquay.
All domestic and industrial wiring must now abide by the IEE Wiring Regulations BS 7671, this being the national standard regulations.
Ensure that your particular electrician is Part P Registered and also ask to check out their certificate and just in case it might be fake verify with the local governing body so that you can guarantee they are authorised and up to date. The regulation requires an electrician to be registered with a Government Approved Scheme such as NIC EIC which covers most electrical work in the home. After doing any kind of work your electrician will likely give you an electrical safety certificate and a compliance certificate, confirming Building Regulations are met.
Annually,there are close to 12,500 property fires, 750 serious accidents and also 10 fatalities that happen to be caused by dangerous electrics at home.
