Electrical systems in residential and commercial properties are prone to various issues that can compromise safety and efficiency. Being aware of common electrical problems can help you take appropriate action to address them before they escalate.

Wiring faults are a common issue that can lead to electrical malfunctions, causing fires or electrocution hazards. Rodent damage to concealed cables is another concern, as rodents can chew through insulation, exposing live wires and increasing the risk of short circuits, shocks, and fires.

Inadequate earthing is a serious safety risk, as it can result in electrical devices becoming live and causing electrocution. Loss of lighting, faulty or damaged sockets, and circuits tripping are all indicators of potential electrical problems that require attention. Additionally, loose and unsecured cabling can pose a tripping hazard and lead to damage to the electrical system.

Incorrectly installed fittings in wet zones, such as bathrooms and kitchens, can lead to water ingress, increasing the risk of electrical shocks and damage to the electrical system. The use of unsuitable electrical equipment in external areas, such as garages, sheds, and gardens, can also result in safety hazards due to exposure to moisture and other environmental factors.

Faulty circuit breaker devices can fail to trip when needed, leaving the electrical system unprotected in case of short circuits or overloads. Inadequate power points can lead to overloading, which may cause damage to appliances and increase the risk of electrical fires. Nuisance tripping of RCDs (Residual Current Devices) can indicate underlying issues within the electrical system that require further investigation.

Fuse box or consumer unit issues can cause disruptions to the electrical supply and may indicate that the unit needs upgrading or replacement. Lastly, reoccurring light bulb failure may signal problems with the lighting circuit, such as voltage fluctuations or loose connections

Overheating of wires and connections: Over time, electrical connections may become loose, causing wires to overheat. This can result in damage to insulation, increased risk of short circuits, and potential fire hazards.

Outdated wiring systems: Older properties may still have outdated wiring systems, such as aluminum wiring or knob-and-tube wiring, which are less safe and efficient than modern systems. These can cause increased fire risks and may require upgrading to meet current safety standards.

Incorrect wire sizing: Using wires that are too small for the current they need to carry can cause overheating and potentially result in fires. Ensuring that wires are correctly sized for their intended use is crucial for safety and efficiency.

Improper use of extension cords: Overloading extension cords or using them as a permanent solution can create safety hazards, including fire risks and increased chances of electrical shock.

Flickering lights: Flickering lights can indicate various electrical issues, such as loose connections, overloaded circuits, or problems with the electrical supply.

Frequent electrical surges: Electrical surges can be caused by issues with the power grid, damaged power lines, or problems within your property’s electrical system. Frequent surges can damage electrical appliances and indicate that there may be an underlying issue requiring attention.

It is essential to address these electrical issues promptly to maintain a safe and efficient electrical system. Regular inspections and maintenance by a qualified electrician can help identify and resolve potential problems, ensuring the safety and functionality of your electrical system.

What happens after the Electrical works have been completed in my property?

On completion of repairs and fault finds we provide a full report of the works carried out and where possible photographic evidence. Following a notifiable replacement or minor works we will issue am EIC or Minor works certificate accordingly 

What other electrical related services do you provide?


Electrical Installation Condition Report formerly known as periodic Inspection Report is an certificate outlining the condition of the electrical installation within a property and any potential or existing hazards. An EICR is a legal requirement for rental properties in the UK and maybe required if you are selling your home.


Electrical wiring, like any other material, wears and deteriorates over time. This creates faults, tripping and possible risk of fire. This deterioration or the new requirements of a modern property may mean the entire installation may require upgrading or rewiring.

Electric Cooker Installation:

Installation of a free-standing electric cooker, upgrading the supply cable and installing a cooker switch if required.

Heat detectors work on a similar principle used by smoke detectors, by tracking the temperature instead of smoke.

Smoke Alarm: 

Installation of mains wired and interlinked smoke alarms, for homes, apartments, HMOs and businesses. Smoke alarms are a legal requirement for rental properties but a must have for all homes and businesses to protect lives

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are my electrics constantly tripping?

There are a number of potential reasons why electrics keep tripping, including:

Circuit overload: If there are too many appliances or other devices plugged into one circuit, the circuit may trip. 

Faulty appliances: If you have a faulty appliance such as a toaster or microwave  could trip the circuit. 

Damaged wiring: A circuit trip may be caused by damaged wiring in your home, a common issue is damage by rodents. 

Loose connections: If your electrical circuit and fittings have any loose connections, the circuit may trip.

Water leaks: water leaks around electrical connections can cause a short circuit and cause the electrics to trip

Get your electrics tested to find out which one of these issues are affecting you

Why is a circuit have no power?

A specific circuit not having power could be due to a number of reasons but most commonly could be due to the circuit breaker (or RCBO) for that circuit tripping. These are protective devices that disconnect the circuit in the event of a fault.

Another reason could be broken wires or loose connections, for power to run through a circuit, the circuit needs to be completed and a breakage or missing connection could cause loss of power.

How do I fix a circuit that is overheating?

A number of problems, such as an overloaded circuit, faulty appliances, or damaged wiring, might result in an overheating circuit. You must locate the root of the issue and make the necessary repairs or adjustments in order to resolve it. One solution maybe unplugging excessive appliances that may be cuasing an overload, another is upgrading a circuit which requires additional power to meet the modern needs.  

How do I fix a circuit that is producing sparks or smoke?

Sparks or smoke arising from a circuit might pose a major safety risk and need to be fixed right away. This problem may be brought on by malfunctioning appliances, unsecured connections, or broken wiring. If you find this in your property turn off the circuit from the fusebox or consumer unit until an electrician can investigate further.

How can I best prevent electrical faults or electrics tripping?

The best way to safeguard against electrical faults or electrics tripping is to regularly have your installation inspected. Components of an electrical installation, like most things in life wear over time and a regular EICR can locate these faults before they become a problem.
