Safety with Precision
Keeping our customers and staff is our number one priority. We will carryout an electrical safety test with every callout, to assure that all electrical fittings in your home or workplace comply with the relevant safety regulations. We have a duty to notify you of anything that poses a danger to your safety – such as exposed cables or an overheated fuse\breaker – and notify on the resolutions available to you, this willl enable you to make an informed choice.
How we can help
We first establish how quickly you need any corrective work completed. If the issue poses an immediate risk to your safety – for example, a sparking fuse box – we’ll send one of our electricians immediately. However, if you wish to repair a faulty plug-socket, your requirement for emergency assistance will not be as high. Either way, we always work to a suitable time that you are happy with. Some of the most well-known repairs we can assist with:
If your lights are , buzzing, flickering, it could mean that the wattage is wrong. There could be a bad connection between the lamp and the switch. If substituting the bulb doesn’t help, we will be able to ascertain the root cause and get your lights operating correctly.
A power cut can be irritating at the best of times, but it could also mean there’s a fault with the wiring in your home or workplace. Sometimes it will just be a case of operating the relevant switch in your fuse board (consumer unit) , however if you’re uncertain of the problem or would rather not take the chance, calling Precision is the safest route of action. Our electricians will be able to diagnose the problem and implement a fix, or, if necessary, heighten it to your electricity provider.
Electrical Device Arcing
If you detect a weird fishy smell (ozone being burnt) or a smell of smoke from a switch or wall socket, it may mean that the connection to an electrical device’s circuit has been broken – generally known as ‘arcing’. When this occurs, the electricity will jump to make the circuit, which can result in a fire. Our local proximity and 24/7 coverage gives us the ability to respond quickly in such cases.
Electrical installations will need remedial attention of some kind due to general wear and tear.

Under current UK Electrical regulations BS 7671 (IET Wiring Regulations) , any building open to the general public and workplaces require regular electrical testing of the cabling, switches, sockets and protective equipment; this test is called an Electrical Inspection Condition Report.
Under most circumstances, this should be carried out every five years although some local authorities demand extra testing.

We guide you through the process of prioritising your action points and, if required, can also assist with the corrective action to deliver a solution, rather than just leave you with the problem.
As advised by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), repairs should only be carried out by a competent person, someone who has the requisite skills, expertise and experience to carry out the work safely.
In this setting, a competent person is someone who has suitable training, skill and knowledge for the duty to be undertaken to prevent harm to themselves and others.
Common faults encountered in dwellings is improper electrical wiring, and one of the main causes of electrical fires is faulty and ageing wiring in the home.
Some of the most typical electrical wiring problems involve inadequate overload protection, inadequate electrical service and improper earthing.
Some of the typical warning signs include burning smells, sounds of buzzing or crackling, fuses blowing or circuits tripping.
Improper electrical wiring not only puts the inhabitants at great risk of being electrocuted but also enhances the chances of electrical fires.
Many factors can have an impact on the wear and tear of your electrical installation. Including the materials used and how your premises has been used.
The NICEIC would recommend that a periodic inspection is carried out on owner-occupied premises at least every ten years and every five years in rented accommodation. The examination will confirm whether the electrics in a property are safe and inform you if anything needs upgrading.
It would be best if you carried out routine checks around the house on the condition of your wires, switches, sockets and other electrical fittings. If you see anything unusual – get a certified electrician to check your electrics as soon as practicable.
Many electrical devices stop working without causing any serious problems. However, a fault either within the mechanism or with its supply cabling will cause it to pose a tangible risk. Electrical failures may also be caused by human error – such as someone cutting a cable or a cable melting if inadvertently located close to a heat source. More and more insurers have also associated rising house fires to electrical faults caused by forged telephone chargers.
Landlords must assure:
• Extension leads and sockets are not overloaded with numerous appliances. It is recommended to use one plug per socket
• Residual Current Detection RCD protection on fuses should be fitted to assure electrical equipment does not lead to serious shocks, and that it trips out when the test button is operated
• Broken socket covers, cables or plugs should be replaced promptly
• Protective earth bonding should be put in place so that electrical faults do not lead to electrical shocks or fires
• Suitable cables are used for all devices, and that circuit breakers and fuses are correctly rated
• Make sure appliance covers, casings and cables are not tattered or otherwise damaged, as they could pose a fire hazard or lead to an electrocution
• Ensure that the area surrounding your fuse-boards is free of any combustible materials
• light fittings, plug sockets, switches and other fittings are fixed securely
• Take prompt action when electrical problems are uncovered
• Make sure cables are in a practical position and are not likely to undergo any damage
• Make sure you have smoke detectors fitted on every floor of the house and regularly check them to make sure they work
• Check that audible Carbon Monoxide alarms are situated in every room that has a fuel-burning appliance, and that they work when tested
• Arrange an examination of the property’s electrical installation once every five years. This is legally compulsory for houses in multiple occupations (HMOs), and are highly recommended in other rented premises
• Only use certified engineers, and confirm that all building and electrical work complies with Part P of the Building Regulations, our commercially rated engineers achieve this
• Make sure all electrical appliances provided to tenants are PAT tested regularly
• Acquire electrical items from a trustworthy source and check that they have a British or European safety (BS or CE) mark when purchasing
