Jack was very quick to respond to the advert and was very reliable as I had to leave work for him to carry out the work and he was always on time. He went above and beyond and even replaced switches that he thought needed updating without additional charges. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone... Honest, well priced and reliable. Well done Jack!

Great service. From the initial appointment graham made helpful suggestions of how I could optimise things, checked I could have dimmers by looking into sockets and also explained stuff in a way I could understand. During the time he and his team were here they were very respectful, helpful and courteous for example making sure my laptop had power whilst I was working. They are super clean and tidy too. Very friendly and trustworthy guys. Jobs have been done to a good standard. Recommend!

Iv just had a system installed by Mihaly and must say that he did the job extremely well and has high technical knowledge and expertise. He takes time in planning out his work and then executing it within the timelines advised. He goes the extra mile in explaining what he does and ensures that everything is working before he leaves. His pricing was also very competitive and final invoice was exactly as was agreed with no unnecessary hidden extra charges. I would highly recommend him.

Felix is THE electrician of your dreams - turned up bang-on-time, Then he got straight to work - he really knows his stuff and his work is of a very very high standard. His rates are more than reasonable. He spent well over two hours here and still charged me what he originally quoted even though he did a few extra jobs. I have already booked him for a more major piece of work. I cannot rate Felix highly enough. I will never use another electrician. Top, top guy!

CCTV / Satellites / Alarms - what you need to know

Aerial and network specialists’ work is all about making sure your home is set up with the right connections to receive digital signals. They can make sure your home network is set up so you can access the internet and have a home telephone line. A lot of the work they do involves fitting aerial or satellite dishes, and resolving problems with existing ones, so you can watch your favourite TV shows of an evening. Often, a reception issue isn’t caused by an aerial but by cabling which will show up when they perform a signal test. A network specialist can also install new TV points in different rooms so that the whole household doesn’t have to watch the same TV channel.

As well as making sure you have access to all the home entertainment you need, a network specialist can also help you protect your home by installing a variety of burglar and fire alarms

What an aerial installer and network specialist can help with

  • Fitting an aerial or satellite dish.
  • Solving signal problems.
  • Adding extra TV points in different rooms.
  • Installing alarms – burglar alarms and fire alarm systems.
  • Installing CCTV.
  • Installing data and telephone points.
  • Setting up internet access.
  • Repairing or installing data cabling.
  • Setting up or resolving issues with your home network.

The qualifications your aerial installer and network specialist needs

In general, an aerial installer and network specialist won’t need a particular qualification but they may need a Part P qualification if any of their work requires them to touch the wiring in your house. To fit data and telephone cabling, a network specialist would also need to have an affiliation with a service provider.

Why do I have no satellite signal?

If you have no satellite signal and you see an error message on your TV screen from your service provider, the problem’s usually down to your satellite dish, cables outside your home or the connections to a TV box (for instance a Sky box). If you have a TV box switched on and you see “no signal” or “no input” on the screen, this is normally down to the connection between the box and the TV. If the picture on the screen looks distorted, the main cause is usually bad weather conditions or a loose connection. In each case, you’ll want to head to your service provider’s website as a first port of call to troubleshoot the problem. If you can’t fix the issue, it’s worth calling out an aerial and network specialist to take a look.

Planning permission for aerial installation and network specialist jobs

Planning permission may be required for fitting satellite, TV and radio antennae. It’s your responsibility to fit an antenna in the correct position and there are different rules according to the height of your house and whether it’s in a designated area. Check out the Planning Portal for more information. There may also be specific rules in a rental or leaseholder agreement and you should check your property’s details before having anything installed.

Building regulations for aerial installation and network specialist jobs

Building regulations don’t normally apply for installing an antenna but you need to make sure that it’s fixed securely.

Insurance for aerial installation and network specialist work

There’s no legal requirement for network specialists to have insurance but it’s a good idea for them to buy public liability insurance to cover themselves against any property damage and personal injury claims.

Questions you should ask an aerial installer and network specialist

  • Do they have public liability insurance and what does this cover?
  • How long have they been trading?
  • Will any of their work require them to touch the electrics and if so, do they have a Part P qualification?
  • Will it be themselves that carry out the work? If not, what experience does the person have and are they covered by insurance?
  • Will they give a guarantee for the work and how long does that last?
  • Do they offer phone support for the alarm?
