One of 2013’s big projects

“The level of professionalism and care throughout the electrical

installation provided by A Coole Electrical during the shop fit of our new

Electrical branch in Grantham was exceptional. The attitude and care

shown by their team along with the communication to ensure that the fit

out wasn’t delayed enabled our branch to open a week early. I would

willingly recommend them for any further installations and thank them

for all their hard work and dedication whilst working on our branch.”

Electrical Safety

IS YOUR PROPERTY ELECTRICALLY SAFE? 

 

How to know that your property is electrically safe:

 

What is an RCD?

 

 

This is a switching device that is more sensitive than a normal fuse. It will detect any dangers that arise and switch off the electrics accordingly.

Having RCD’s installed will reduce your risk of electric shocks/electrocution.

 

 

 

 

Do’s Dont’s: 

 

  • Do: Keep checking your electrical appliances for any irregularities (Plugs, Wires & Appliances).
  • Don’t: Overload plug sockets with several extension wires.
  • Do: Report any smell of burning coming from your electrics.
  • Don’t: Touch any electrical sockets or appliances if you have wet hands or are standing on something wet.
  • Do: Use the plug to unplug things and not the wire.
  • Don’t: Use appliances outside without proper protection.
  • Do: Check there are no wires directly behind the plaster that you are drilling / hammering into.
