As a local electrician in Worcester and a member of the NICEIC, as well as being registered with Trustmark and Which Trusted trader, it was great to see a new awareness by NICEIC Called ban the Bravado, please click here to view it.
As well as being a local electrician in the Worcestershire area, I am also a father of two children, Ellie who is now 16 and Zach who is 10, but back when they were babies and toddlers, like any parent I would do anything for my kids.
As one of the leading Electricians in Worcestershire, I get lots of questions either by email or Phone calls, about different subjects. This month seems to more about what Certification they should have for electrical work, mostly done by other people or the council itself, so as an approved NICEIC Installer I thought I would write a blog about it.
Is Confusion over LED Lamps costing you money?

I hear often that electricians turn up hours after they had arranged, or in some cases not at all. This understandably leads to much frustration on the customers part and a general distrust of electricians in general.
Following many electrical inspections in the Worcestershire & Gloucestershire regions, am told many times by my clients that they thought an electrical inspection and test would be costly in both time and money – in reality this is not true – many electrical inspection tests I carry out are absolutely fine and it leaves the homeowner or business owner with peace of mind that their home is electrically safe.
The majority of my customers don’t understand what Part P registered actually means. However most customers have heard of the ELECSA brand and feel these brand mean’s something good and they should look for them when searching for an electrician. (more…)
