Locating and selecting a suitable qualified and registered electrician to work in your home can be a daunting task. When selecting an electrician to work in your home it is important that you feel you can fully trust your electrician to be reliable and carry out work to a high standard whist complying with electrical safety guidelines.
If you had an electrician in Medway quoting for electrical works in your home, they may have mentioned that RCD protection is required to be installed for the works to comply with the current electrical regulations.
But what's an RCD and what's the point of having it?
I have been hearing several reports from my customers in Medway and Gravesend recently that maintenance companies and kitchen fitters are telling them that their fusebox is dangerous and needs replacing. I have seen cases where a sticker has been placed on the fuse-board saying that it is unsafe to use.
Thankfully, not all my clients went ahead with the work and requested a second opinion. It is just as well as they did, as they didn’t waste money on needless work.

Whilst not all DIY electrical work is illegal, it does require a common sense approach.

Take Care When Selecting an Electrician!!
Many other Electricians in Medway are simply not interested in small electrical works. They want the choice jobs, and will drop you like a hot potato when a bigger, supposedly more lucrative, project comes in.
Others advertise as electricians having no qualifications. They thrive on the basis that you don’t understand what they do and, as a result, overcharge for shoddy, and often dangerous, work.
This of course is not limited to Medway, the same happens in other areas such as Maidstone, Gravesend and Sittingbourne.
