Fuse Box Installers in Cwmbran

Most people when asked, can tell you exactly where the fuse box is in their home. The fuse box controls all of the electrical circuits in your home and is where you can switch off your electric supply in an emergency. Aside from knowing the location most homeowners quite rightly leave the fuse box well alone and they only time they do check it is when there is a problem!

EV Charger Installer in Cwmbran

Electric vehicle numbers are increasing rapidly in the UK. The government plans to ban the sale of all diesel and petrol cars by 2030 and with fuel prices at an all-time high many are considering moving over to an electric vehicle sooner rather than later. Whilst electric vehicles are slightly more expensive at initial purchase the ongoing cost benefits make for a worthy investment.

My Electrician Didn’t Turn Up Today...

Unfortunately I hear this all too often when I go out to visit customers. They tell me that the electrician turned up hours after they had arranged, or in some cases not at all. This understandably leads to much frustration on the customers part and a lack of trust of electricians in general.

I have to admit that this kind of 'problem' is very common within the trade. PG Electrics however pride themselves on their punctuality and professional service, we understand that time is very valuable to you.

Appliance Safety


A lot of house holders in Cwmbran and Abergavenny often call me to ask if there is a problem with their electricity supply. Understandably they are not sure if it is safe to continue to use their electrical appliances or if they should call an electrician. The simplest advice is if you suspect a problem with an electrical appliance, unplug and stop using it immediately, however if you suspect there is a problem with your actual electrical installation then consult a local qualified electrician who will be happy to come and take a look.

RCD's

A few of the blogs I have written in the past mention how important it is to fit an RCD in your home. Although I've explained the importance of having one, I have never really explained what an RCD does and how it protects you and your home.

An RCD stands for Residual Current Device. It is an important safety device that automatically trips and cuts off the power if there is a problem. This might sound pretty boring and be a nuisance, and you might be wondering what the point of having one is.

Many householders in Cwmbran and Abergavenny often ring me to ask if there is a problem with their electrical supply. Understandably they are not sure if it is safe to continue to use their electrical appliances at home or if they should call an electrician.

The basic advice is if you suspect a problem with an electrical appliance, unplug and stop using it immediately, however if you suspect a problem with your actual electrical installation then consult your local qualified electrician who will be happy to come and take a look.

Are Your Plugs Safe

This tip might seem a bit bizarre – after all a plug is something that we generally take for granted, so long as it contains the right fuse, all should be good right?

Unfortunately this is not always the case. The Electrical Safety Council (ESC) carried out some tests on plug tops in the UK. The ESC is a UK charity that is dedicated to keeping people safe by reducing the risk of electrical accidents around the home and in the workplace.
