Tom came to give a quote for the job and gave a full explanation of the work required, timescale and price. Tom and Andy returned 2 days later to compete the job and completed on time and for the price quoted. Fantastic job, highly recommended.

Absolute pleasure doing business with Tom and Andy. Within 5 mins had highlighted I had no earth wire into the house, and made the call for me to ENW and sorted. They returned and completed a top class job, sourcing bespoke products, and keeping me informed of what they were doing and why all the way through. Trustworthy, friendly, reliable and very reasonable. Would hire every time!

Tom carried out an EICR on my property, explained everything involved and communicated with my tenant to arrange a suitable date and time. Turns up, answers calls, is very knowledgeable and a fair price. Thanks Tom I will be hiring you for any future electrical work.

Tom arrived punctually and was very pleasant to talk to as he worked. While not a demanding job to complete, Tom completed the job quickly. The quote previously given was the price paid. I would recommend Tom highly and in fact will be using him again soon

I am confused how much a electrician charge to install double socket and install per ceiling light. I ask different electricians and their quotes are way higher. £120 per electric socket and £40 per ceiling light. Please guide me. I need someone to install things per hour? Is it right thinking to save few pounds...

    Hi Ansa James is correct an electrician would need to view the job to price correctly No respectable electrician would give a price over the phone, with any job there are always variables which could affect the price, beware any electrician that gives you a price over the phone

I recently noticed that the RCD on my consumer unit at home was not stopping supply to the whole house when tripped during a test. This concerned me and I got an electrician round who was very helpful and advised me, but I would be grateful for a second opinion from this community. The electrician explained that what I have is a split board where the RCD will only turn off certain things if tripped and will leave other things on like lights. He said this was fine a few years ago but is now not up to building regulations and that if for instance a faulty wired light caused the house to burn down that insurers are unlikely to pay out. He checked that I DID have an earth wire on my stop cock and gas main and said all he would have to do to get it up to scratch and certified is to fit a new board all RCD'd and with a metal casing. He did say he might have to earth the pipes on our heating and that would be slightly more if he did have to do so. Being no expert any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks for reading.

    Some old style consumer units 16th edition and previous had partial RCD protection, however with 17th edition and now 18th edition which commenced in July 2018, the laws are different for protection within the home. 17th edition required an advisory from the electrician if the consumer unit was not compliant, however if there was a shower cct present it must be red protected, there would be no impact on home insurance, unless the testing showed that there was a real danger of fire or death. 18th edition from January 2019 will require all consumer units to be RCBO, ensuring single cct protection, from what we have so far been told this will be a retroactive requirement
