If you reside anywhere in Newport, Gwent, then you should never have to worry about electrical services as we’ve got you covered. If you are looking for a fresh house rewire, new fuse board installation or just to fix faulty sockets, you are going to have to call an electrician to diagnose exact problems and offer long-term solutions.
Whether you’re looking for a commercial electrician Newport or a domestic electrician Newport, it’s best to check out if the service provider specializes in both—because most do, so it’s good to keep this in mind.If you are buying a new home, or your lights are flickering for no reason, or the wiring seems shoddy, the best course of action is to get an electrician give a first-hand look.
With recently built homes, there’s probably not much needed in the way of electrical upgrades. However, there are electrical advances that older homes probably do not have, which makes them vulnerable and in need of repairs to keep abreast with the new changes. Here are five genuine reasons to call an electrician:
You might be experiencing lots of fuse explosions and ending up in the dark because your electrical circuit breakers trip frequently. There is probably one culprit and it’s that the circuits draw a lot more current than they can provide safely. This situation may also be a result of a risky fault on one or more of the circuits.
This basically means too many things plugged in to one socket! If your outlets are burdened by multiple plug-strips and multi-receptacle extensions, you’re overworking your electrical system. What you need are extra circuits and duplex receptacles to keep things working properly and safely.
If your living space looks like an aerial view of railway lines with wires running underneath things, you’re not living in a safe environment. The only way out of this condition is more outlets. If you’re using many extensions, then this means your outlets are situated far apart. In both these cases, the best course of action is to install extra outlets.
If you begin to notice rust taking over your main panel or you notice moisture, it’simperative to get an electrician to give it a look. Panel wear risks damaging the wiring connections and is probably a sign that the entire system is not in a healthy condition.
Are you experiencing mild shocks or tingly sensations when you touch switches, outlets or other electrical surfaces? Do you notice any black marks on the outlets, switchterminals, wire ends or even the wall? Are you experiencing a sense of heat from these places? If any of these is true, you need an electrician to look into the problem.The problem could be overwhelming demand on the circuits, or it could be something far worse.
It isn’t uncommon to find that when you switch on motor-powered appliances like the freezer or AC, some other less powerful appliances stop functioning for a moment. You could notice the lights going dim. This is because powerful appliances consume lots of currents and should be kept on specific circuits to curb this problem.
It is recommended to get your electrical systems checked, repaired and upgraded regularly to avoid long-term faults which could be costly. If you live in an old home that has probably never undergone an electrical upgrade, you are living in an inadequate situation which is possibly dangerous.
If you notice any of these probems, or still aren't sure, just give us a call and we can come and look at it for you.
It's always better to be safe than sorry!
