Electrical Safety

Posted by niamhp on June 11, 2011 under All posts | Be the First to Comment

Electrical safety should always be forefront in the mind particularly in the home.  Care should be taken if there is a smell from shower switches, like the one pictured below.  If you happen to smell fish from your switch you should discontinue using the shower. Turn the switch off and call a qualified electrician to check out the wiring and the switch.

Your electrical contractor should be qualified, insured and included on the Safe Electric register.

Annual Inspection

Posted by niamhp on September 1, 2010 under All posts, Electrical, RECI News | Be the First to Comment

While we have many items and systems checked and serviced like our heating boiler or intruder alarm system, we very rarely have a vital part of our home given an annual inspection.  The vital part I refer to is the wiring and fuse board/consumer board.

Over time the installation deteriorates, the insulation becomes brittle and often falls away from the copper within the cabling, this causes arcing and in trun may lead to a fire.

Having the electrics tested and inspected will give you piece of mind that your installation is up to current standards and is safe.

RECI recommend that the electrical installation should be tested and checked about every five years.  For more information from the RECI website about home safety check this link http://www.reci.ie/ConsumerServices/HomeSafety/tabid/58/Default.aspx

Safety First

Posted by niamhp on July 19, 2010 under All posts, Electrical | Be the First to Comment

We are always conscious of safety issues.  We would like to share this picture with you all, its a switch that was controlling an electric shower but it could easily have been controlling a cooker and the result could have been a lot worst.

Electricity has the power to cause fires and even electric shock, it is this very reason that we only use reputable equipment.  It does mean that very often we will be more expensive when quoting against other contractors, but our reputation depends on the quality of work we install.  If you have a shower switch or cooker switch like this one and it either sticks or smells of burning or a fish like smell – then we urge you not to use the appliance but call out a reputable electrician to check the suspect switch.  Don’t take the risk with your safety, the safety of your family and that of your home.

We were delighted to present our business to the customers of the Bank Of Ireland Blanchardstown branch during the recently held National Enterprise Week.  The initiative is a great way for business to have a showcase in what can only be described as a very busy space.

There were also a number of events hosted by Bank Of Ireland throughout the country with some very enthusiastic speakers from a variety of backgrounds, be it business or academic.  A considerable amount of work was put into the organization of such a countrywide event and we wish to acknowledge this fact and say a very big Thank You to each member of staff who were involved.

The new scheme for the Electrical Regulatory Safety ensures that all electrical installations are carried out by competent electrical contractors.  This scheme is being heavily advertised at present and is informing the general public of the importance of using a Registered Electrical Contractor and why it is important to always get a Completion Certificate.

Only registered contractors will be permited to use the Safe Electric logo,  as members of RECI we are therefore allowed use this logo on both our paperwork along with our website.
