Mains and Earthing – Installation & Upgrades

When was the last time you checked your Mains and Earthing? If your mains cable is outdated or your existing earth rod has been hidden by your renovation then your home has an increased risk of fire or electrical shock to the occupants. Older buildings often use cables that are undersized, or not designed for a modern electricity load. Large appliances such as dryers, washers, air conditioners, freezers and dishwashers can overload your mains cable. This can be dangerous and cause a fire hazard, or risk of electrocution if there are loose connections or fuses, or an older switchboard.

Earthing Assessment

The earthing system in your home or commercial premises is a vital link in protecting against electrocution. An earth cable is designed to safely divert current away from a faulty appliance or outlet allowing a safety switch to trip and immediately cut the supply of electricity. Without this vital link every electrical device in your home or business is potentially dangerous.

Third time I have used this business. Terrific service and quality. They always go above and beyond to help out. Honest, trustworthy and reliable. I won’t use any-one else. As a bonus they are also very funny – having tradespeople in the house can be difficult but these guys make the experience a pleasure. Thanks Steve and Steve!
