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

I had a great experience with David, I had him installing spotlights in my new flat and he did an outstanding job! Positive attitude, clear quote and really good prices - I had to book him twice to get an extra LED installed on the wall (again, the result was ace!). Can't thank him enough, David is a reliable specialist and I will definitely book him again when needed.

I called a lot of electricians about my job but David is the only one who didn’t try to rip me off. He came to spec the job up and was very knowledgeable. He told me exactly what he would do in advance and quoted me a fair price for the materials and labour required. He was very professional, punctual and competent in the light installations. Very happy with his work and will use again. Great job!
