Top Electricians related questions

It depends on the regulations set by your local government. For some electrical tasks, you may need to follow safety regulations and hire a qualified electrician who completed a relevant college course, especially if it involves intricate equipment or high-voltage systems. It intends to ensure optimum safety and avoid any injuries or accidents. In case you do need a registered electrician, make sure to confirm the relevant license  (or white card) and certificate with your electrician.

It depends on the scope and inclusions of the service you need. Typically, electric installation or repairs in a residential area take several hours, but still completed within the day. Industrial or commercial electrical works, on the other hand, may take a little longer since they require a wider variety of services and follow stringent safety regulations. In case your sparky needs to revisit your property the next day, they can coordinate the details with your right away.

Experts recommend having your electric wires, cables, and boxes inspected at least every three to five years. For landlords, you can also have your property checked after a tenancy contract. A more frequent inspection is encouraged for commercial and industrial premises. Since they have higher energy consumption, they are more susceptible to early degradations and failures. For optimal safety, you can also book for at least an annual inspection.

An electrical inspection condition report (EICR) certifies the safety and competency of your electrical wirings. For some states, it is a legal requirement. Most of the time, commercial and industrial businesses are also pushed to get an EICR since they have more people consuming electricity. It is usually issued after a rigorous inspection, and once electricians with a white card confirm electrical safety.

Electricians often provide virtually any electrical repair service. They can tweak power lines, do rewirings, and handle replacements. Some of the most common issues that they can resolve include a sparking fuse, frequent surges, and flickering lights. They also handle repairs for electrical equipment and generators, appliances, and other fixtures.

Definitely! Our services are not limited to electrical-related problems. If you don't have the time or skills to complete some of your DIY household tasks, we can also connect you with a trustworthy handyman who can help! There's no task that is too big or too small. You can hire them to install carpets, curtains, and fix broken appliances or furniture. You can also commission them for wallpapering, bricklaying, and other building and construction tasks.

What do electrician services include?

Our local electrical contractors can handle all electrical projects, be it for residential, commercial, or industrial properties. If you are building from scratch, they can help construct an efficient electrical framework for you. They can also establish new electrical wiring and control panels, and test the electrical flow for your safety. 

As for existing properties, electricians can routinely maintain, repair, and upgrade your power systems whenever needed. They can also handle electrical equipment and machinery for factories and manufacturing plants. Here is the better overview of our electrical services:

Domestic electrician

Electrical safety is paramount when it comes to your home, and that's when residential electricians play a vital role. They follow safety regulations and make sure that all electrical components and control panels, including electrical wiring and cables, are in good condition to avoid any incidents that could put you and your family at risk.

Domestic electricians can establish power points and switches to support your household appliances. They can also assist with installing various electrical appliances such as electric heaters and showers, in case you're looking to upgrade or planning a renovation. All while ensuring they follow all building regulations.

Commercial electrician

Not to be confused with domestic electricians, commercial electricians are mostly involved in large-scale projects for buildings and various businesses like restaurants, hotels, and corporate offices. Depending on your establishment's requirements, they can fix lighting, heating, and cooling systems or install fire alarms and other security equipment if needed.

Industrial electrician

For engineering projects or tasks that involve higher voltage systems and more complex machinery, it's better to connect with a licensed industrial electrician. Their services include electrical construction and maintenance for industries like factories and plants. They don't just install lights and electrical heaters. Most of the time, they also deal with different types of manufacturing equipment, including hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Industrial electricians can also troubleshoot problems and repair them as they see fit. They can even create tailored maintenance programs for your electrical motors and generators.

Emergency electrician

The moment you sense something odd with your control panels, sockets, and switches, or notice a burning smell, spark, or flickering of lights, get in touch with a local electrician immediately. With Airtasker, finding available emergency electricians in your area is fast and easy! You won't even have to worry about not having any tools on hand–most electricians are already equipped with their own professional tool kits, which they can bring with them for any service that you may need.

Repair dishwasher electrical fault


St Pancras, Greater London

26th Mar 2024

I would like to request a quote for an electrician to visit and repair my dishwasher (Bosch SMV50C10GB/51). It is not powering on due to an electrical fault. I have ruled out any blockage issues and suspect there is a short circuit that occurred last weekend. I have already tried the following troubleshooting steps: Checked if the door latch or door switch is properly engaged (no issues found). Ensured that the dishwasher is receiving power by checking the circuit breaker or fuse. Attempted to reset the control panel by turning off the power for a few minutes and then turning it back on. Call-off payment of £30 if the issue is not resolved. https://www.bosch-home.co.uk/product-list/SMV50C10GB

Norman quickly identified the issue with heat pump short circuit, brought heat pump replacement he carried and fixed it in 30-40minutes. He explained me the problem and reminded me of product care tips.
