Electrician

Ondrej was able to sort out my fused electrics very quickly and at a reasonable price. He explained why my electrics had fused and gave me some good advice for future work that needs doing.

We had great service from Andrej. He quoted quickly and was able to fit our extractor fan in just a few days. We'd recommend him to other customers and would use him again for future electrical works.

Can't fault Andrej at all. He answered my posting promptly and was available to carry out the work required (3 ceiling lights) later that day. This morning (more than two months later) I contacted him, while on my way into work, to advise of minor problem with one of the fittings and he again got back to me very promptly. As well as this, he came to assess/fix it this evening - free of charge. No arguments, no complaints. I highly recommend Andrej if you need an electrician.

I have built a wall in which I have run through armoured cable. At intervals I have run the cable out of the wall to have 4 up/down lights fitted. The shortest exposed cable is around 6 inches, which I have been told is not long enough. The electrician who told me this was doing some other works at the property and frankly I got the impression he wasn't interested in doing the work. I am keen to know if 6 inches is long enough to connect up the lighting and if not, can the cable be extended? The cable is 6.0mm 3core Steel Wired Armoured (SWA). Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Hello Gareth, I am apologise ,however, I have not get message about the scenario. The most of light fittings have terminals suitable to terminate 1mm , 1.5mm or may be 2.5mm core. You are mention that you have there 6mm SWA cable. The SWA cable is not flexible as PVC and therefore require longer cable to deal with terminate the cable proper way. Special cable SWA gland are required to terminate the cable. My feeling is that 6inch is not enough in 6mm size cable. Any cable is possible to extend but when you need extend 3 core 6mm SWA cable about for example 2-3 inches that is possible in the theory. In real life will be probably difficult to find some one to do that.

We recently had a ground floor extension built and my wife managed to spill some water in the new sockets. It made a small 'pop' noise before i had a chance to switch them off at the fuse box. Weirdly, the fuse marked 'sockets' switched off the sockets but also meant that the lights in the extension were switched off but work everywhere else in the flat. Is this normal? Thanks

    Hello Owen, Standard is that the lighting circuit should be separate from the sockets circuit. Does mean the lighting circuit should have an own circuit breaker. However, is permitted by regulation to get the power supply for lights from existing sockets circuit by fuse connection unit (FCU). 5A fuse inside. Does mean the circuit breaker of sockets circuit overdrive the FCU. When are socket OFF then the lights are OFF as well.
