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. When it comes to electrical safety in a home you don’t want to take any risks. 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 local electricians in Ruskington, we offer a range of electrical services which include anything from replacement sockets and fixtures, to fault finding and rectification.

Downlighting

Kitchen downlights install in Sleaford

As we approach the time where the evenings are drawing in, many of us start to pay more attention to the lighting in our homes.

Downlights are a popular and attractive way to brighten up your home. However, poorly installed downlights are also the cause of a substantial number of fires in homes every year.

Also known as “recessed luminaries”, "spotlights" or Recessed Lighting" they are essentially light fixtures installed in hollow openings, usually ceilings. By installing them into these recesses, the light looks as if it is part of the ceiling instead of hanging down as a separate entity.

When a hole is cut into a ceiling to mount a recessed downlight, a potential fire hazard is created. This is why it is recommended that you always use a registered electrician to install any downlights.

So, can you get different types of downlights?

Yes you can.

Downlights operate at mains voltage (230 Volts) or are powered by a transformer at extra-low voltage (12 Volts).

Extra-low voltage (ELV) downlights are often described as "low voltage" or “safety extra low voltage” (SELV).

Kitchen Electrical Safety in Sleaford

More than half of all accidental house fires start in the kitchen. Last year, nearly 5,500 electrical fires were reported in British domestic kitchens – that’s 15 every single day.

Even more worrying is the fact that over 70 casualties and fatalities per month were reported as a result. Most of these were due to people misusing electrical appliances, so it’s important that you take extra special care when using them.

Here are our top 14 tips to ensure you keep safe in the kitchen:

Do you trust your electrician?

local, reliable and trustworthy electricians in Sleaford

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.

Are you charging your mobile phone correctly?

Are you charging your mobile phone correctly?

A mistake that most of us are probably guilty of making is how we charge our mobile phones. Phone batteries have a habit of going flat at the most inconvenient of times.The best way to charge a phone is on a flat surface which is dry and free from soft furnishings. However, this can also mean that you might miss an important phone call or can't continue with that live chat in comfort!

This can lead to dangerous methods of phone charging which leaves the phone at risk of overheating and fire. A young girl was electrocuted whilst charging her phone as she was in the bath. This highlights why we do not have electrical sockets in the bathroom (that's for another blog post!).

When charging your phone can be dangerous?

As electricians in Sleaford, we have seen an increase in damaged sockets where the wrong type of charger ha been used when charging items such as smartphones.Typically this is when universal chargers are being used which are not compatible with the type of phone being charged.
