Many people attempt their own electrical work to save money but this can end up costing more in the long run if things don’t go as expected. When selecting an electrician to carry out your electrical work it's really important to select a registered and qualified electrician.
Over the last year we’ve spent more time than ever in our homes. So, it’s no surprise that many people have taken to DIY and home improvements in their spare time.

Whether you’re a homeowner, letting agent or landlord, it’s important that you feel reassured in the knowledge that the work you are having done is being completed safely by a registered electrician. After all, our homes are where we feel safest with our families.
It can be tempting to take on those smaller electrical jobs yourself, especially if you’ve booked an electrician previously, who has then let you down once a bigger project has come along. However, that’s where we are different. Here at Marshall Sadler ltd we are proud to work with you on jobs no matter how big or small.

As a Landlord, it is your legal duty to ensure all electrical equipment in your property is safe and maintained throughout the whole tenancy.
The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020 came into force on 1 June 2020 and apply to all tenancies created on or after that date in England from 1 July 2020.
These new regulations require landlords to have the electrical installations in their properties inspected at least every 5 years and tested by a person who is qualified and competent. Landlords will also have to provide a copy of the electrical safety report to their tenants as well as to the local authority if requested.
Most of us don’t even thick twice about getting our car MOT’d and serviced. We just accept it as something that we need to do that also keeps us safe. So, much like an MOT for cars, it is important for us all to carry out checks on the condition of the electrics in our homes at regular intervals.
It is true that most of us take electricity in our homes for granted. Perhaps because we can’t always see the cables and fuse boxes that are hidden away in our homes, it is all to easy to forget that they are there, working away to power our homes. However, all electrical installations deteriorate with age and use. They should therefore be inspected and tested at regular intervals to check whether they are in a satisfactory condition for continued use. This will help identify any faults or defects which could require improvement and will ensure the continued operation of the electrical installation in a safe and effective manner.
There are two kinds of checks that can be carried out. It is recommended that you always use a registered electrician to carry out any kind of electrical check.
This is a question we get asked a lot in and around Sleaford. It’s completely understandable that clients might question this when their fusebox has been quietly working away in the background, not causing them any issues for years.
However, just because something has been working, it doesn’t mean it’s safe. What was considered the best twenty years ago may now be obsolete and in a few cases actually unsafe. Take the use of asbestos for instance.
Replacing your fusebox will improve the standard of safety in your home, and therefore protect you and your family.
In 2008 the electrical wiring standards and regulations changed meaning all circuits required a Residual Circuit Device (RCD) protection by law. AN RCD is a life saving device which is designed to prevent you from getting a fatal electric shock if you touch something live. Having a modern consumer unit (fusebox) fitted with RCDs gives you the best protection because they usually cover all the wiring, sockets and appliances in your home.
Power cuts can occur for a variety of reasons such as a storm or a cut power line. Not only do they cause us inconvenience, they can also be highly dangerous. Here are a few tips to keep you safe:
The importance of your Fusebox
Unfortunately this scenario crops up quite often when I go out to visit clients.
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.
I have to say that this kind of 'problem' is very common within the trade. Marshall Sadler Ltd however pride ourselves on a professional service and we understand that time is very valuable.
We offer full flexibility with our appointments – there is no need for you to take time off work and wait in for us.
Many electrical contractors are simply not interested in small electrical works. They want the choice jobs, and will drop you like a hot potato when a bigger, supposedly more lucrative, project comes in.
Others advertise as electricians having no qualifications. They thrive on the basis that you don’t understand what they do and, as a result, overcharge for shoddy, and often dangerous, work.
We set up Marshall Sadler Ltd in order to fill a gap in the domestic sector. We want to provide you with a quality service that provides you with exactly what you need from an Electrician in Sleaford.
