  • We intend to keep our business open and will be operating as usual during this vital period of social distancing.
  • We have been briefed on the symptoms of COVID-19, and everybody who works with us is under strict instructions to stay at home at the first sign of any respiratory illness or fever.
  • We will wash/sanitise our hands thoroughly before and after visiting anyone’s home.
  • We accept contactless payments.
  • We have not recently travelled overseas or knowingly had contact with an infected person. In the unlikely event of exposure, we will obviously stay home and self-isolate in line with the latest government rules.
  • When booking an appointment we will ask you to confirm that you have not recently travelled overseas or knowingly come into contact with an infected person.
  • We agree to adhere to the social distancing guidelines and refrain from shaking hands and keep at least 1.5m from others. We kindly ask that you do the same.
  • For the time being, I will have to respectfully decline appointments to homes under quarantine.

Safety switches protect you and your family

All homes are now legally required to have a safety switch (RCD) for both power and lighting. But if your home is more than 20 years old, you may not be aware that you don’t have one. A safety switch can save lives. It automatically shuts off the electricity supply when current is detected leaking from faulty switches, wiring or electrical appliances.

Ray will come and check your switchboard and fit RCDs if necessary, and check that any existing safey switches are working properly.

Protect your electrical equipment

A surge arrester will protect the wiring and equipment in your home from unexpected voltage spikes which can occur in the electricity system from events such as lightning strikes or faulty power poles. Voltage spikes can damage power outlets, lighting and any equipment plugged into the system including fridges, stoves, computers and much more. Surge arresters act as a fail-safe system.

Extra power points

Most homes don’t seem to have enough power points. Instead, people overload existing power outlets with adaptors and extension cords, which can be dangerous. Ray can install additional power points as well as change singles to doubles so there will be enough for everyone.

Outdoor lighting

Regardless of the purpose of your outdoor lighting, the benefits are all positive. From increased safety and security, to creating a warm and inviting environment, adding outdoor lighting will improve the look and value of your home. Whether you’re sitting outside on the patio or you want to highlight a feature with a spotlight, Ray can help you to get the most out of your outdoor areas.

Upgrade to energy-efficient LED lighting

Lighting can contribute to over 30% of a household’s total electricity bill. Ray can help you reduce this by replacing power-burning halogen lights with modern, energy-efficient LED lighting.

The benefits are many:

  • Start at full brightness every time
  • Can lower your power bill
  • Safer as they operate at much cooler temperatures
  • Brighter than halogen lighting
  • Durable and less prone to breakage
  • Last 8-10 times longer than standard halogen lamps
  • Environmentally friendly

Maintenance and safety checks

Like a car, you should have your home electrics checked to make sure they are performing as they should. Ray will come to your home and carry out a full electrical safety test. This will identify any problems such as overloaded electrical circuits or equipment, reveal any electrical hazards like live wires and discover any dodgy, DIY or non-compliant electrical work. Ray recommends this for older homes and homes that have been renovated.

Power boards can be a useful way to increase the number of power outlets in your home, but only if they are used safely and correctly. Here’s what you should and shouldn’t do.

Bathroom extractor fan

In the bathroom, the most important function of your exhaust fan is to draw warm, humid air out of the room during a hot shower, which prevents mould and mildew from forming. But your exhaust fan can still draw out your cooling and heating, even when it's switched off
