Acoole Electrical completed a full rewire on a occupied house, in the local area for Jon and Annie. They have emailed our Director Andy Coole directly to thank him and the team.

“Hi Andy, Thank you and your team for your hard work and patience with our rewire. I understand the house was not an easy one to work on due to its age, but we are very pleased with the result – the chrome hardware looks great. Thank you – Jon & Annie”

Well done Lads – And Thank You.

Electrical Testing in your Home

What is an electrical installation?

 

An electrical installation is a fixed wiring system made up of equipment, such as a consumer unit (fuse box), lighting and power circuits, and switches and sockets.

An electrical installation does not include electrical appliances, such as cookers, heaters and washing machines.

 

Why do I need to get the electrical  installation in my home (or the home that I am planning to buy) checked?

 

You cannot see electricity. Cables are usually hidden inside our walls, and consumer units are often hidden in cupboards, so it is not surprising that we forget to check the condition of our electrical installations for damage or wear and tear.

Faulty and old wiring is one of the main causes of electrical fires in the home. You can reduce the risk a fire by having the condition of your cables, switches, sockets and other accessories checked regularly.

How old is my electrical installation?

Clear signs that can help you tell the age of equipment in the electrical installation in your home include the following.

  • Fixed cables coated in black rubber (which stopped being used in the 1960s).
  • Fixed cables coated in lead or fabric (used before the 1960s).
  • A fuse box with a wooden back, cast iron switches, or a mixture of fuse boxes (used before the 1960s).
  • Older round pin sockets, braided flex hanging from ceiling roses, brown (or black) switches, or sockets mounted in or on skirting boards (used before the 1960s).

if over 40 years old  it may need rewiring completely. If not, your home (or the home that you are planning to buy) is probably wired with cables insulated in pvc (used in installations since the 1960s), so it is unlikely that it will need completely rewiring.

 

 

However old your electrical installation is, it may get damaged and will suffer from wear and tear. So you should get an electrician to check its condition at least every 10 years or when you move into a new property.

“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

Dangers of Electricity

 

 

Any form of energy, when not properly controlled or harnessed, can result in serious danger to those who use it. The risks with electric power can generally be divided into two categories: direct and indirect.

 

The direct danger is the damage that the power itself can do to the human body, such as stopping you breathing or regular heartbeats, or burns.

 

The indirect dangers of electricity include the damages that can result to the human body as a result of something caused by electric shock, such as a fall, an explosion, or a fire.

 

Electricity at any voltage can be dangerous and should always be approached with caution. An electric shock can occur upon contact of a human with any source of voltage high enough to cause sufficient current flow through the muscles or nerves.

 

The best way to avoid electric shocks in the home is to have your circuit’s tested by a qualified electrician.  Never tamper with the electrics in your house, leave it to the experts A Coole Electrical
