It’s might come as shock, but electricity isn’t always perfect.
We take for granted how dependent we are on electricity, right up until the moment the lights fail or the power goes out. At moments like that, it’s great to know that Fixington has you covered. Our specialised tradespeople offer a wide variety of electrical services, so here’s a quick guide to some of the most common electrical problems and whether Fixington can solve them.
You’ve bought yourself some brand new electrical appliance, only to discover that installing it isn’t as simple as plugging it in. You could try installing it yourself and there are plenty of guides out there online, but you’re not exactly DIY savvy and you don’t have the time.
Sure. Our tradespeople are happy to install a wide variety of electrical items as part of the many electrical services we provide.
Fire alarms are great at alerting you to a fire and, if you are renting a property, it is a legal requirement for your landlord to have installed one. But they can also be a nightmare when alerting you to burnt cooking or a particularly steamy shower. Some can be overly sensitive, yet the real issue is when they beep for no reason whatsoever. A fire alarm connected to the mains can beep non-stop if something is wrong with it.
Of course. Beeping fire alarms can be a beeping nightmare, but there are several simple explanations for why it might be acting up. In fact, in many instances, you might be able to fix it yourself. If not, then it’s time to book one of our electrical services.
We’ve said this many times, but we’ll say it again: showers can have many, many different kinds of problems. Sometimes it’s a plumbing issue, sometimes it’s a gas issue and sometimes it’s an electricity issue. Before you book a tradesman, you should probably do some sleuthing yourself to see exactly what the problem is. You might even be able to fix it yourself but, if you can’t, then you should probably get someone in.
Yes, yes and yes. If it’s a plumbing problem, then yes, our plumbers can fix it. If it’s a heating problem, then yes, our heating engineers can fix it. And if it’s an electrical problem, then yes, our electricians can fix it.
Replacing a light bulb is a doddle, even a broken one, but replacing or installing a light switch can be slightly trickier. As with all electricity-related issues, getting it wrong can have some nasty consequences. Of course, if you know what you’re doing, this isn’t an issue. If you don’t, you’re best off getting someone in to help you.
Absolutely. Replacing a light switch is a simple enough job for an electrician and it can be done within an hour — though installing one from scratch can be a bit more complicated. Your electrician will need to figure out how to wire your new switch safely and this can require a bit of detective work.
Electrical work needs an expert hand from time to time, which is why we’re happy to provide a wide range of electrical services. What’s more, we know that electrical problems are the kind of things you want dealt with quickly. Thankfully, with Fixington, you can book a tradesperson online in a matter of minutes.
