As commercial electricians in Liverpool our main aim and end game is to have your building safely wired and provide you and yours with outstanding customer service. However, many people like to think of themselves as DIY-electricians, and for some tasks it can be safe to be of that opinion, but for others you risk more than just spiky frizzled hair with cartoon steam coming out your ears; it can be much more risky.
Things like checking the fuses or wiring a plug tend to be universally fine as long as you actually know what you are doing – do not try these if you do not! However, there are occasions when seeking out a qualified electrician is a wise port of call.
Lights or Sockets
A time when you may need to ask for the help of a professional electrician is when you are experiencing issues with your lights and sockets. Now let’s assume that it isn’t your bulb (we’ve had that happen!) and is an issue with your actual wiring. This could be down to your electrical installation or just general issues with the fittings themselves. Be sure not to start trying to connect or disconnect anything when it comes to your switch’s wiring without consulting a professional, or risk a trip to the hospital. The same goes for when you require new switches or fittings.
Telephone issues can manifest themselves through a lack of dial-tone or simply a lack of electrical power to the receiver, so if you find that your telephone isn’t working then you may be experiencing an issue with the power connected to your phone sockets. Some telephone companies can be rather extortionate with their call-out charges, so be careful.
Buying / Selling a Property
When you are hopeful of moving into a property or even wishing to vacate, you are wise to hire a qualified electrician. This way you can have the electrics inspected on your behalf to discover if there is anything wrong. This is particularly useful when you are looking to move into a property as they can inform you of how much it would cost to fix an issue; it’s best to avoid these nasty surprises isn’t it? Some electricians offer a ‘visual check’ which is great if the issue is only surface deep, but with wiring throughout a property, these don’t prove to be very comprehensive.
