So, what are the most commonly reported problems with electrics in UK homes?

Firstly, faulty wiring is an issue that can cause a range of problems, including short circuits, sparking and electrical fires. 

Overloaded circuits can also cause blown fuses and tripped circuit breakers. Circuit breakers are designed to trip when they detect an overload or a short circuit, cutting off power to the affected circuit.

Other issues our electricians in Isleworth frequently deal with include faulty outlets and switches.

Worn-out outlets or switches can pose a safety hazard and may not function properly. If you have an older property, we’re always happy to update your wiring. 

Problems with light fixtures is another common reason to call out an electrician. Whether you’re having issues with flickering lights or bulbs burning out frequently, this can indicate wiring problems or issues with the fixture itself. 

Perhaps you have new fixtures which you need installed.

Our team regularly introduces LED lighting, energy-efficient appliances, and smart energy monitoring systems.

Why change to LED lighting in 2024?

LEDs consume significantly less energy than traditional lighting options. This is because they convert more energy into light rather than heat, so are more efficient and cost-effective in the long run.

They also have a much longer lifespan. That means you’ll have to replace your bulbs much less often. LED lights are also less resistant to shock, vibrations, and external impacts. 

LED lighting produces less greenhouse gas emissions compared to traditional lighting sources. Not only that, LED bulbs are free from hazardous materials such as mercury, making them safer for disposal and recycling
