Not sure whether your electrical problem requires an emergency call out?

1. Exposed Wires

In older buildings that don’t follow modern construction practices or where wiring or previous electrical work has been substandard, wires can become exposed due to general wear and tear. Avoid touching exposed wires as they may still have a current running through them, increasing the risk of electrocution.

2. Smell of smoking/burning or burn marks on outlets

Fire safety is at risk in both of these situations. A circuit that is overloaded is often characterised by smoke, a burning smell, or black burn marks around outlets. You can also have either of these problems due to damaged wires, a faulty outlet, or dust accumulation.

3. There is a humming coming from the breaker box

The hum is normal and indicates an electrical current is running through the breaker. A loud humming sound, on the other hand, may indicate that a circuit isn’t tripping as it should. The breaker should be replaced as soon as possible to ensure it shuts off properly during power surges. If you hear more of a sizzling or buzzing sound, there could be a damaged or loose wire inside the breaker box.

4. Wires in Water

Old or impaired wiring can fall into a wet area, such as a damp basement, a kitchen sink, or a bathtub. This not only presents a fire hazard, but water also conducts electricity extremely well, so you should avoid touching it or the wire at all costs.

5. Sparks when plugging in or turning on a device

It’s common to see a tiny, brief spark when plugging in a device. However, if the sparks are larger or come from an outlet whenever you turn on a plugged-in device, it could indicate a short-circuit or insufficient wiring.

If you are experiencing any of the above problems – call today on 01509 829 441

Work was carried out during September 2021. The electricians worked in a very professional way and resolved several problems that had previously existed. Good work.

I used G Taylor to install new wiring, new lighting, relocate some sockets, switches and lights and repair a couple of broken sockets. Their quote was very competitive and the guys were very professional and helpful. I’m very happy with the work they completed and I’ll be asking them to complete installation of an electric vehicle charger and hopefully solar panels next year. They’ve already given me some helpful advice on an EV charger and made sure my wiring etc is ready for that to be installed. Overall I’ve been very happy with G Taylor and would definitely recommend their services.
