First Choice for Emergency Electrical Repairs
Tackling electrical repair on your own is never advisable unless you have a sufficient amount of skill and experience. Whether it’s a blown bulb or power shortage, Elextric has the expertise to assist with any urgent electrical work that’s required in your home.
We have electricians in all parts of London who are available 24/7 and can typically respond to electrical emergencies within 45 minutes.
When you call Elextric, you’ll be greeted by an electrician wearing full uniform and carrying ID that can be produced upon request. All of our technicians also drive clearly marked vans, giving you the reassurance that you’re dealing with a professional and trustworthy electrical company.
No matter the emergency, we’ll always ensure that any remedial work is fully quoted and approved by you first. To minimise disruption to your home, our electricians wear shoe protectors and use dust covers wherever necessary, and will make sure to clean up thoroughly once work is complete.
Because we’re Approved Contractor, any work we carry out is protected by the Platinum Promise, as well as our own 12-month guarantee. It also means that all of our technicians have been trained and assessed to the very highest standard, with all work conforming to British Standard 7671 (The Wiring Regulations) and Part ‘P’ of the Building Regulations for England and Wales.
A Safety-First Approach to Electrical Repairs
At Elextric, keeping our customers safe is the number one priority. We will take the time to conduct an electrical safety test with every callout, free of charge, to ensure that all electrical installations in your home comply with the relevant safety standards. Our electricians have a duty to inform you of anything that poses a risk to your personal safety – such as exposed wiring or an overheated fuse – and advise on the solutions available, allowing you to make an informed decision.
How Elextric Can Help
The first thing we’ll do when you call us is establish how soon you need any remedial work completed. If the fault poses an imminent risk to your safety – for example, a sparking fuse box that could result in a fire – we’ll get one of our electricians on the scene immediately. However, if you simply wish to repair a faulty plug socket, your need for emergency assistance may not be as high. Either way, we will always work to a time that suits you. Here are some of the most common repairs we can assist with:
We’re fully trade accredited. Elextric is registered as an Approved Contractor ( Electrical & Refrigeration). We’re registered with TrustMark for our electrical work, In addition, our Guarantee covers workmanship for up to 12 months.
When you book our electrician you can count on getting the professional expertise you’re looking for. The work of all our electricians is done according to British Standard BS 7671 “Requirements for Electrical Installations”.
There are three main instances when you should consider calling an emergency electrician.
- If you feel your own safety is compromised, you shouldn’t hesitate to call an emergency electrician. At the very least, a registered electrician should be able to assess over the phone the gravity of the situation
- Presence of smoke or if you smell burning near your electrical outlets such as washing machine dishwasher and any white goods. This good is the sign of a power surge which could ultimately cause a fire.
- Exposed wires or sparkles. These issues should be fixed immediately as they can be very hazardous especially if you have young children in your house
The cost of calling an emergency electrician can vary greatly and depends on multiple factors:
- The area you live in. For instance, prices in London are likely to be higher than anywhere else in the country.
- The day you are calling. Weekdays tend to be cheaper than weekends.
- The time you call. It’s always cheaper between 9 and 5.
Choosing the right emergency electrician can be a very difficult decision to make especially if you are facing a stressful situation. If like most people, you are searching on the internet for the best option, we advise you to look at electricians’ online ratings and comments. It will only take you a few seconds to make the right choice.
Now, there is also a handy website you can use to check that your electrician is qualified. The Registered Competent Person Website is easy to navigate and provides information for people to find a registered and competent electrician in their area. On the website, you can also check to make sure that the company you are planning on using is registered. Only electricians who meet core technical standards defined by the government will be listed on the ‘Competent Person Electrical Register.’
