Why it’s Important to Have a Qualified Electrician London

Posted on: August 4th, 2011 by admin 2 Comments

Electricity – it runs throughout our homes, and is used on a daily basis in our day to day lives. It can be found in every room of our property, and yet homeowners still do not realise the risk it can present if it is not managed by a certified electrician. Faulty electrics can be incredibly dangerous, and in some cases can result in electric shocks or even a fire. This is a real hazard, and as such the team at First Strike Electrical would urge any homeowner currently seeking the services of a specialist, to verify that they are a qualified electrician London.

Below, we have highlighted why it is so important to contract the services of a certified electrician, even if it is just to install your electric range cookers.

Health and Safety

As previously mentioned, the main concern which arises from using an electrician who is not qualified, is the safety of the homeowner. All electricians who are qualified with an approved scheme, will comply with Part P of the building regulations. This was introduced to minimise the risk of any accidents which may arise from shoddy or poor workmanship of an electrician.


A certified electrician will have public liability and personal indemnity insurance. This offers you protection in the event that you have accident as a result of their work, as you will be able to claim for compensation for any damage or accidents which arise due to the work which they have carried out.

At First Strike Electrical all of our electricians are certified, meaning that all of our customers can rest assured that any work we undertake is performed to an exceptionally high standard. If you would like to contract the services of a qualified electrician London, contact us on 0800 505 3355 today.

I did most of the work myself but required someone to come in and put in all of the electrics, so I called First Strike. They came in and quoted me a great price for the work and then carried it all out in a fast and high quality manner. Thank you so much for great service!"
