Are You Safe This Christmas?


Only 5 weeks remaining until the holidays are here!


Its time to pull out all of your decorations and light up your living room! But are your appliances safe to be using this Christmas? You can be confident that they are safe by getting them PAT tested by us- we will test the appliances ourselves and tell you if they are safe to use or not, we will also issue you a full report via email detailing the items tested.


We also offer other services useful at this time of year including installation of outdoor plug sockets for all of your outdoor decorations so that you can light up your street safely!


Most people at this time of year have extension leads in their homes and socket adaptors to plug all of their appliances in. Remember not to overload any of your sockets this Christmas by plugging in too many electrical appliances- this is dangerous as overloading sockets is one of the main causes of household fires! Instead why not get another couple of sockets installed. You know they will always come in handy.

Testing & Inspections in South Yorkshire

Testing & Inspections in South Yorkshire


Regular electrical testing and inspections can help prevent fire in your home or workplace and can potentially save lives.

A Coole Electrical can carry out an inspection of your electrical installation and provide you with an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report)

If you are a landlord we can provide you with a landlord certificate confirming that the property for which you are responsible is safe for habitation.

For commercial properties and properties with public access it is mandatory that a periodic EICR is obtained.



Visual inspections:

A Coole Electrical will carry out a survey of the electrical installation prior to commencing any electrical testing. This visual inspection will highlight any defects including cracked devices, incorrect installations, faulty wiring etc.



PAT testing:

PAT (portable appliance testing) is a vital part of health & safety in the workplace. This  is electrical equipment such as kettles, fans and computers which may be used in the workplace.

HSE guidance notes advise “regular testing” – generally regarded as annual testing.

If you rent out a property then PAT testing is mandatory to ensure that your property is safe for habitation

A Coole Electrical will be pleased to carry out this testing for you and provide a landlord certificate.

Reducing energy use makes perfect business sense


As you know last week the clocks went back and the days got shorter, this creates the demand for artificial lighting within commercial properties.


Whilst it’s accepted that more lighting is required throughout the darker days, wasted energy is still a huge issue that needs to be tackled throughout the UK. The correct lighting in the workplace is essential and improves the alertness and accuracy of those working in it


In a recent survey it was found that 60% of us leave lights on when not in the room! That’s a shocking statistic.


Although the biggest excuse for this is to ward off intruders one in 8 just said they just forgot!


Lighting is one of the biggest users of electricity in the workplace so why not up grade


If you do need to leave the lights on, make sure you switch to energy-efficient LED lighting

Or fit motion sensors to your lights so they turn off when no one is in the room
