Spring Electrical Safety from your Edinburgh Electrician

With Spring on its way and the weather (hopefully!) set to turn more pleasant too, now is the perfect time to ensure your Edinburgh home is spring ready and most importantly as safe as possible.

Whether you’re an landlord, Edinburgh homeowner, property developer, building contractor or business owner, our expert electrician team here at DC electrical can help with all your electrical testing requirements. We provide EICR (electrical installation condition report) and can then undertake any required repair or upgrade work as required.

All our electrical testing across the Edinburgh region that comes with the full service, DC Electrical peace of mind guarantee as standard.

There are other visual checks you can do around your Edinburgh home yourself too. Testing your smoke alarm once a month has got to be the easiest and potentially the most important check you could undertake, it takes minutes and could potentially save your life.

Our expert Edinburgh electrician team would also recommend that you pay attention to your plug sockets. Checking that your plugs and sockets are not damaged or overloaded and that all electrical leads and cables don’t appear damaged and are in a good condition is another easy but important safety check you can complete at your Edinburgh home. 

Next we would advise that you turn your attention to your fuse box and double check that you aren’t storing anything flammable around the fuse box or your electricity meter for that matter too. It is also a good idea to double check if your fuse box has RCD protection.  RCD stands for Residual Current Device. This is an important safety mechanism which has been designed to stop property owners being harmed by an electric shock in the event they come into contact with live electricity. An RCD protection system can be built in to your sockets or your fuse box by your expert Edinburgh electrician or alternatively, a plug in RCD can be purchased and used with most types of electrical appliances and equipment
