WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU

We offer all of the traditional electrical services; new alarms & annual servicing, major internal electrical re-wires and extensions or installation of new fuse boards, but also your everyday works including fixing of new lights, sockets and electrical testing. You can be rest assured that the work will be undertaken by fully qualified NIC EIC electrical engineers. Our team will arrive at your property clean and punctual, at a time convenient to you and all wearing full Breedon uniform and identification badges.

WHAT WE CAN OFFER

Your properties electrical installation is supplied and protected by its fuse board/consumer unit,

New fuse boards/consumer units give you a great deal more safety in your home or office than

older units. Older units with rewire able fuses can also be difficult to fix

if a fault occurs as new fuse wire needs to be fitted. A fuse board upgrade

will give you peace of mind that your home’s electricity is safe.

Today’s modern fuse boards come with RCD’s- Residual Current Devices
A residual current device (RCD) is an electrical safety device that turns off the electricity supply automatically if there is a fault in either your wiring or something you plug in and use. RCD’s are far more sensitive than normal fuses and circuit-breakers and so provide you with much needed extra protection against an electric shock.

Having an RCD can save your life. An RCD constantly monitors the electric current flowing around your system. If it detects electricity flowing down an unintended path, such as into a person who has touched something live, it will switch the circuit off very quickly, thereby significantly reducing the risk of death or serious injury. Circuit breakers and wire fuses can take significantly longer to turn off the power and this can prove fatal if a person was getting an electric shock.

Wiring:

When fitting a new fuse board/consumer unit, we can test that the wiring in your

property is to the correct British Standards using our electrical testing equipment.

Certification:

All Breedon’s work carries full NIC EIC certification.

Have you ever wondered how old the wiring in your home actually is? It may easily be over 10 years old; in which case, you should have it professionally inspected and tested and be prepared to consider rewiring. Our team of highly trained electrical engineers are experts at rewiring houses and all types of commercial properties.

A rewire can typically be either a partial or total replacement of all the electrical wires in a property. Any wiring installation that is 30 years old or more may well need rewiring as the insulation will most likely be starting to disintegrate, this can lead to a serious fire or electric shock for anyone in the building.

If the wiring in your home is not so old and you are simply adding an extension or maybe you are remodelling your kitchen, then electrical rewires are still needed, just not for the whole property. The first step is to get the whole system inspected and tested by a qualified electrical engineer who will be able to advise you what needs to be carried out in the way of replacement wiring in order to make the electrical installation as safe as possible.

Always make sure that all testing and installation is carried out by a qualified and experienced professional, never do it yourself or allow an inexperienced or unqualified person to even touch the wiring in your house; it is simply unwise and dangerous to all concerned. You should always expect that the electrician who undertakes any testing or electrical rewires is a member of a professional trade organisation (NICEIC) and that they can give you a quotation for all the work and fittings, such as light fittings, sockets etc. in writing, along with a proposed start and end date for the job.

At Breedon Electrical we offer a cost-effective solution based on quality, service and professionalism. We have the expertise and experience to provide an on-time on-budget, quality electrical installation for your new home.

We are NICEIC registered and Part P qualified to undertake all new build electrical installations. We offer free no obligation quotations and our work will be comprehensively certified.

Electrical Installation Condition Reports explained
You cannot see electricity. Cables are usually hidden inside our walls, and consumer units are often hidden in cupboards, so it is not surprising that we forget to check the condition of our electrical installation for damage or wear and tear.
Faulty and old wiring is one of the main causes or electrical fires in properties. You can reduce the risk of a fire by checking the condition of your cables, switches, sockets and other accessories regularly.

The five main aims of a condition report are:

1.        Record the results of the inspection and testing to make sure the electrical installation is safe to be used until the next inspection (following any work needed to make it safe)

2.        Find any damage and wear and tear that might affect safety, and report it

3.        Find any parts of the electrical installation that do not meet the IET Wiring Regulations

4.        Help find anything that may cause electric shocks and high temperatures

5.        Provide and important record of the installation at the time of the inspection, and for inspection testing in the future.

How often is a periodic inspection required?
Your electrics should be inspected and tested every:

10 years for an owner-occupied home.
5 years for a rented home.
3 years for a caravan
1 year for a swimming pool.
Other times when a periodic inspection should be carried out are:

When a property is being prepared for letting.
Before selling a property or buying a previously-occupied property

At Breedon we carry out many intruder alarm installations both wired and wireless, as well as providing ongoing servicing and maintenance agreements offering different levels of cover should you or your insurance company insist on it.

Risco Agility™ 3
Agility™ 3 is a state-of-the-art 2-way wireless alarm system designed for the residential and small business markets that provides more than a standard home security system.

Agility™ 3 supports visual verification with a self-monitoring Smartphone app (also available via web browser) which enables homeowners to control their alarm systems remotely as well as view real-time images taken inside their premises with the eyeWave™ wireless PIR camera detector which communicates with the RISCO Cloud server.

In the event of an alarm, the PIR camera is automatically activated and captures a sequence of images which it sends to users via RISCO’s Smartphone/ web Application. This capability enables users to view the images and confirm if there is a crime in progress. Monitoring stations can also benefit from the visual verification feature as the capability to ascertain whether there is a false alarm will save them valuable time and resources.

Agility™ 3 is easy to install, can be managed remotely and gives peace of mind, and therefore provides benefits for installers, monitoring stations and end users.

The Agility™ 3 wireless security system can be enhanced with a wide range of accessories that provide additional protection against theft as well as protection against environmental hazards and providing elderly care.

For your electrical system to be safe in the event of a fault occurring electrical wires are placed in and around your property that are called ‘earth’ wires. These are normally in all plugs, cables, sockets and lights.

If a fault occurs these earth wires give the electricity a place to go and minimise the risk of electric shock.

In a modern home your gas and water supply must also be connected to an earth as their metal pipes conduct electricity. When installing a new fuse board, we can check to ensure that your water, gas and oil pipes are all

connected in a safe manner to the electrical earth. This is crucial for your electrical safety.

Our fully qualified and experienced engineers possess a wealth of knowledge and expertise in electrical fault finding and rectification. You can rest assured that you will be in safe hands and that the fault will be corrected in a timely and efficient manner.
