Our electrician can replace your old low voltage recessed downlights with new mains operated fire rated downlights that we then fit with a replaceable LED lamp and the fittings we use remove the need for the transformer and its associated connections, simplifying the installation and allowing the downlights to be covered with insulation, improving both thermal losses and sound transfer through the ceiling.

Electrical Condition Reports

Earth Fault Loop Testing at Mains GU10 Exterior Wall Light (Testing by Hawthorn Electrics)

EICR’s (Electrical Installation Condition Reports) carried out on existing installations to satisfy insurance company conditions, mortgage company requests, building surveyors recommendations or simply because you want peace of mind that your electrics are safe to continue to be used. EICR’s formerly known as PIR’s (Periodic Inspection Reports) are very valuable when correctly and diligently carried out and can be of especially great value when selling your house or home.

There are things that can happen which can cause your electrical installation to become unsafe without you knowing and lots of these things can be identified by inspection and testing by an experienced and fully qualified electrical engineer, electrician or electrical contractor such as Hawthorn Electrics. We have recently discovered serious defects such as reverse polarity, rodent attacked cables, loose connections, crushed cables, unearthed class 1 light fittings, RCD’s (Residual Current Devices) not operating correctly, incorrectly wired ring main circuits, loose or inadequate earth and bonding connections etc.

Consumer Unit Upgrades

If you have an old consumer unit like this old Wylex one that has a wooden base and would have originally been fitted with rewireable type fuses then its probably time for an upgrade to something like this new metal consumer unit?

We can incorporate many enhanced safety features such as this one here on the right that we fitted in place of the old wylex one on the left. The new consumer unit benefits from a non flamable and non flame propagating enclosure containing a 100 Amp Main Switch, A Surge Protection Device (SPD) and Five Individual RCBO/AFDD circuit breakers which combine Overload Protection with 30ma Residual Current Protection and the latest Arc Fault Detection (essentially a combined MCB, RCD and AFDD) the AFDD is the very latest device enhancing domestic electrical safety in the UK.
