So, how can you keep yourself and your family safe and achieve electrical safety within your home?

Read Fairtech’s blog to find out.

Be Selective with Who Carries Out Electrical Work in Your Home 

It is hugely important that you are selective with who you allow to carry out work on your home. Rather than just allowing anyone to carry out work, ensure that they have the proper credentials before hiring them.

This may be by asking for references, recent work or simply checking to see if they are registered.

If they are not a registered electrician, you have to ask yourself why exactly is that and you may want to avoid using them.

Replace Old Wiring

Old wiring within your home can pose a real risk. One of the most common causes of fires within the home is due to faulty wiring that sparks and ignites.

If your wiring is over 20 years old, it may be time to consider having it replaced or at least inspected to check that it is still safe.

Speak to your architects Warrington about finding an electrician to carry out the inspection or maintenance work to your home, we can find you a trust worthy and cost effective contractor.

Inspect Plugs, Fuses and Flexible Cables

As well as faulty or damaged wiring, plugs, fuses and cables also pose a real risk when it comes to electrical fires within your home.

It is important to inspect these components of your electrical appliances to ensure they are in working order and not posing a risk to your home.

Again inspecting these components and appliances within your home requires the input of an expert and so it is important that you use a registered electrician to do so. If you need help finding a reputable electrician to check your home, your architects Warrington can help.                                               

Avoid Cheap Adaptors and Appliances Within Your Home

Cheap does often mean substandard and when it comes to electrical safety, you cannot afford to be below the required level.

Cheap adaptors and extension cables can seriously increase the chances of overloads, malfunctions and ultimately electrical fires.

We suggest always investing in properly fitted, high quality adaptors and electrical equipment.
