MEAD ELECTRICAL SERVICES
On this page our electricians in Upminster have looked to answer some of the questions they most frequently receive. But if you have a question that’s not featured below, pick up the phone and give us a call. A friendly Mead Electrical Services electrician will be more than happy to deal with your query.
WHAT QUALIFICATIONS DO YOUR ELECTRICIANS HOLD?
We are Elecsa approved electricians insured to the sum of £2m. Our team are all fully qualified and compliant with both IEE 17th edition regulations and BS7671 standards. All this, on top of the fact that we’ve long served as a leading electrician in Upminster, gives our domestic and commercial clients peace of mind, knowing they’ve hired a capable team for the job at hand.
WHY SHOULD I UPGRADE MY CURRENT CONSUMER UNIT?
If you have a modern metal consumer unit, you only need to replace it if you begin to experience issues with your electrical system. This could be because an amateur electrician in Upminster botched the installation, for example. But if you have an old or plastic consumer unit, it may be worth considering an upgrade. Plastic consumer units won’t often meet current electrical safety standards, being dangerous and a fire hazard, especially when they’re getting on in years. Call in a Mead electrician to take a look at yours. We will hand you a free, no-obligation quote on a metal consumer unit that meets modern electrical safety requirements.
WHAT BENEFITS DO LED LIGHTS HAVE OVER TRADITIONAL HALOGEN LIGHTS?
LED lighting is far more efficient than traditional halogen lighting. It lasts far longer, is significantly more durable, and provides options for customisation. On top of this LED lights are far more environmentally sound, as no harmful chemicals are involved in their manufacturing and they can be recycled when they reach the end of their lives (~20 years). Electricians recommend LED lighting for almost every application. There’s really no contest with halogen lights, which are significantly inferior in every department – unless you’re looking to use your lights to toast marshmallows!
WHY CHOOSE MEAD FOR A REWIRE OVER OTHER ELECTRICIANS IN UPMINSTER?
Over the years we’ve developed a system for rewiring domestic and commercial properties that is far more efficient than systems employed by many other electricians in Upminster. But it isn’t just the speed and quality of our electricians’ work that makes them the go-to choice for rewires in the area. We also offer a more complete service. For example, our rewire service can include professional cleaning and decorating. Mead Electrical Services will even find you appropriate temporary housing for you to stay in while we carry out the rewire.
