Dark Nights Approaching

 

 

Its that time of year  again where it is becoming very dark very early!

Are you prepared? Is your property fitted with external or security lighting?

If you do have external lighting, does it work? Are the lights bright enough? Have you considered using LED’s as they are brighter and more low maintenance than regular fluorescent lamps, so will be very handy at this time of year. You will want to sort any issues now to prevent any accidents from occurring, especially when the snow and ice arrives.

If you don’t  have any external or security lighting, have you ever considered installing it?

Fitting outside lights is just one of the many helpful services that we can provide here at A Coole Electrical to assist you through the dark nights creating peace of
mind.

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

Farho Central Heating

Now that autumn is here and the weather turning colder, are you looking to upgrade your heating system?

 

 

Here at A Coole Electricals we would recommend Farho central heating as it is highly efficient electric central heating.

 

 

The radiators are easily installed, both time and cost is radically reduced from other systems that need pipe work.  Farho electric radiators are ideal for points in the property where pipes are difficult to install.

 

 

This system should be considered for saving money, its safety, performance, ease of control, longevity and ease of installation. With focus on renewable energy sources and declining fossil fuels such as gas. It’s fair to predict electrical energy will be more cost effective now and in the future.

 

 

  • As safety is important you will find the radiators are fitted with temperature limit and a keypad lock
  • The product shape is designed with soft edges which makes it ideal for families
  • And there is no need for costly service bills as the radiators are maintenance free

 

Farho electrical radiators are best in their class. That is why we at A Coole Electrical are fitting them on a large contract in Luton and we also have them in our own office

With a combination of high spec materials and clever engineering you get high performance and reliable heating all at the right cost.
