What do you mean by “electrical outlet/Socket?”

Also referred to as “outlets, sockets, wall plugs”, an electrical outlet can be defined by several things, but the most common definition is that they provide alternating current (AC) to electric equipment in buildings and other locations. In UK properties, we are most used to seeing 3 pin outlets. A 3-pin outlet on average provides 230 volts at a frequency of 50hz, this is important to remember when using electrical appliances from outside the UK.  A 3-pin plug is insulated to prevent shock if the plug is not fully inserted into the socket and comes with a built-in fuse that protects against unexpected electrical surges. 2 pin shaver supply units can also be installed. A shaver supply unit allows an electrical razor to be used near a sink but operates at a low rating making it unsuitable for blow dryers and other appliances.

We interface the most with electrical outlets more than any other part of our home electrical installation, because of this it is important that we regularly inspect outlets to ensure their safe operation.

Why would I need electrical outlet installation?

  • If you are having issues in routing cables for electrical appliances around your property and need easier access to outlets.
  • If you are extending your property and need to use appliances in the new areas.
  • If you want to use a wired electric shaver in your bathroom safely.

How can I keep my electrical outlets safe?

  • Frequently inspect your outlets for signs of smoke, scorching or discolouration.
  • Use plugs that contain the BSI Kitemark
  • Never pull a plug out by the wire, always use the grips either side of the plug itself.
  • Listen for arcing, popping, or vibrating sounds emanating from outlets. This can signal a serious fire hazard
  • Feel for heat build-up, as it is a sign of improperly wired electrical outlets

Why would I need electrical outlet repair?

A damaged or faulty electrical outlet can pose a serious risk to the safety of the occupants in your property. The cover plate acts as a safety device as it prevents everything within the electrical box from being exposed, accidentally touching these can give you a powerful electrical shock, this can be especially dangerous in properties with children.

  • Discolouration, scorching or smoke on outlets
  • Appliances operating improperly, when on other outlets they work fine
  • Faulty sockets can cause fuses to blow more often

Marlowe was a very professional and well-mannered electrician that fixed all the electric sockets my flat was having. He also explained and showed me what was wrong previously while fixing it. I would highly recommend their services to anyone that needs help with any electrical issues.

Excellent communication, incredibly professional service, fair prices - David and Marlowe were brilliant to work with when conducting an EICR and then undertaking the subsequent remedial works. They clearly explained what the issues were in our home (both verbally and via email) and provided all of the information we needed. Very glad to have found them and will absolutely turn to them in the future. Thank you so much!

They fixed the switch for me and was able to send someone on the same day. Initially I gave three star review due to the switch not matching to the rest of the flat and some wall paint was chipped off. However the team contacted me and kindly did a second visit and fixed issue. I really appreciate the communication and effort they put into taking care of the customer. So I amended my review to 5 star! Highly recommend the service!

Marlowe did a superb job. He arrived quickly and on time after our pet chewed through our fridge cable. He fixed the cable quickly and suggested making it extra chew-proof without me needing to ask. He tolerated my bad tea and pets and even entertained my nosy children. THIS is what small business is about. Very pleased
