Winter Electrical Advice from your Friendly Edinburgh Electrician

As Christmas approaches and Winter officially begins, it is likely that we will see an influx of seasonally cold & wet weather. In this current period of economic uncertainty and surging energy prices it is more important than ever before to ensure that your electrics are working as safely and efficiently as possible. This is where having a reputable, reasonable and reliable Edinburgh electrician team just a phone call away can really help.Winter can cause problems with your electrics both inside and out, here we have some tips from your friendly Edinburgh electrician team, to help keep your electrical systems and appliances running as they should.

When it comes to any external power sources, it is really important now, as the temperatures begin to drop that any external panels, plugs and electrical boxes are covered with a suitable level of protection in order to prevent any elemental damage. Wind, rain, frost and snow can be extremely harmful to outside power sources so act now and make sure yours are covered and protected.

There has been a lot of reporting in the media about turning off appliances at their power sources in order to save money but the extra added benefit of doing this is that it will also help prevent any electrical fires starting at night due to electrical faults or power surges. It is always best to consult your Edinburgh electrician team though should you have any concerns over your electrical appliances or systems performance. Your safety is our priority and the safety of every single Edinburgh electrician who works as part of our team too.

One thing our Edinburgh electrician team really recommends to add efficiency & to save money is the addition of LED lighting in your Edinburgh home. There are so many benefits when it comes to LED lighting which include saving money on your bills and also time on maintenance so looking at making the switch is something our Edinburgh electrician team really recommend homeowners look into.

With the onset of Winter comes darker nights so you may find yourself using your outdoor and security lighting more. Now is the perfect time to look at security and exterior lighting maintenance. Motion activated lighting especially,  will benefit from attention as adverse weather can displace dirt which can affect the light sensor action. Our Edinburgh electrician team advises that keeping lighting lenses clean is the best way to ensure optimum performance from your outdoor lighting.  It is also a good idea to double check your lighting intensity to ensure it is sufficient for your Edinburgh property’s location. If you don’t currently have any outdoor or security lighting installed and are looking to do so, now is the perfect time to contact one of our expert Edinburgh electrician team before the weather becomes more inclement which can make installation more difficult. Whatever your project budget or requirements are, one of our friendly Edinburgh electrician team will be only too happy to help.
