New fuse board change Canterbury.

2/4/2013

Electricians in Canterbury

We were recently called to a job in order to change the customers fuse board, the customer said that little and often over the years bits and pieces had been added, and it didn’t take a while to realize after a quick look that the additions hadn’t been completed by a professional.

We ended up rewiring the property in the end, upgrading the bonding to the gas and water and installing a 17th edition fuse board.

New power shower fitted in Ashford

26/4/2013

Electricians in Ashford, Kent

This one was a first for me, because the customer works abroad we had to Skype them to agree what they wanted for the install. We agreed that we would provide everything from design to install.
We fitted a 8.5kw shower, installed on a new circuit, we also supplied and fitted the designated cold water main to the shower, and then to top if off re-tiled the complete shower for them so no need to call any other tradesman in. We can supply and fit complete new bathrooms or just exchange showers like for like, any size and any style to suit all budgets.

Canterbury Electricians, Kent

Electricians in Kent

We got called out to a job where the customers fitted kitchen down-lights had gone out and consequently had no light over the works surface, upon investigation they were low voltage and being powered by a transformer, 70w max output. It seemed as we looked further it was because the customer had replaced the bulbs with 20w halogens over time. As there was 5 on the circuit it had a power consumption of 100w and on a 70w transformer this was never going to work.
We replaced the transformer and all of the bulbs with 5w alternatives, this will ensure the longevity of the transformer and in the long run will cost less to run!!

Have you thought about replacing your bulbs with LED alternatives?
The saving can be significant

Emergency call out Electricians

Emergency Electricians

We got called out today to Borden Grammar school in Sittingbourne, we are registered as electrical contractors directly with the school and cover a large amount of their electrical work. They had two pillar drills that had stopped working, upon inspection the first had dropped a phase,(3 phase equipment) we believe due to the work that had just been undertaken in the building recently causing damage to one cable. The other one had the contactor had given up, not bad considering the equipment was over 25 years old!!!
We are returning to install a new contactor and hopefully they will get another 25 years worth of use out of it!
