Electrical Maintenance and Upgrade

Electrical Maintenance and Upgrade This is another area of high expertise; with extensive knowledge and foresight we can maintain and improve all electrical systems. We have consistently worked with clients, management companies, Facilities management, builders and other trades to bring installations in poor or unmaintained states up to current electrical standards. We also improve the overall aesthetics of the building and reduce ongoing maintenance costs incurred previously by installing new technology or better quality of product. Many installations have been left for years, with different electricians coming in and patching up here and there. The system becomes complicated and components start fail with regularity.

We like to build a good relationship with everyone involved in [...]Read more

Earth loop impedance - verifies there is a good connection to earth and the resistance of the circuit is low enough for the breaker or RCBO to operate in the required time in fault conditions. The values are set out by BS7671-18th edition RCD test – This verifies all installed RCDs and RCBOs operate in the required time set out in BS7671-18th edition.
