Every home needs the electrics to be running like clockwork. Even a minor electrical fault can create chaos in your home, as you may find that you cannot use areas of your home properly.
Unfortunately, problems don’t often develop during standard business hours, and in these situations, you’ll need an emergency electrician service.
All our recommended electricians can provide an emergency call out service, so any problems can be quickly corrected, and have the functionality of your home restored.
If you’re unsure about whether you would need this type of service, we’ll explore it in a little more detail, so you have all the facts to make an informed decision going forward.
The first question homeowners often ask is whether they actually need an emergency electrician service. This is a subjective issue, and you’ll need to use your discretion to decide whether any problem can wait.
In a case where the functionality of your home is severely compromised, the answer is obvious, but if the problem appears to be minor, you may wonder if you should call in an electrician immediately.
In order to answer whether you have an electrical emergency, you need to think about your situation. Is the electrical problem going to create other issues around your home?
For example, if a fault has compromised the power to your kitchen, you will not only be unable to prepare a meal using your oven, but the food in your fridge and freezer may start to spoil.
While a refrigerator may keep its temperature for several hours, it is likely to warm up over a weekend, which means that you’re not likely to be able to wait until Monday morning.
If the electrical problem will cause issues around your home, it is best to err on the side of caution and call in a professional.
Remember, that the electrics in your home can be hazardous, so you should not attempt any temporary repairs to try and manage as you may put yourself, your family and your home in danger.
In some cases, you may not be aware that you have an electrical fault inside your home.
Fortunately, there are some common signs of a fault in domestic wiring that should be explored by an experienced professional. These include:
You may even create a fault through an accident such as a nail through a wire that should be checked immediately, in this instances you would need an electrician as fixing this kind of fault requires expertise and experience to ensure it is done safely.
Emergency electricians are not limited to solely these type but can also provide help for a wide variety of issues.
This includes fuse box upgrades, electric cooker installations, lighting installations, storage heater installations, fire or flood damage emergency repairs, fault finding and diagnostics and socket or light rewires.
This means that practically any electrical issue can be dealt with by an emergency electrician and all our recommended electricians have the skills, qualifications, expertise to offer all these services and deal with all your electrical problems and issues.

Excellent service so good we are booked in for more work to be done
Used once in the past with no problems. Just want to say have a phoned for advice on a couple more occasions, and each time have been very impressed, by the advice and time given to me. They will be my first port of call for any future electric problems.
Came out on a bank holiday at very short notice - not even an emergency. Very helpful, professional and courteous.
A very good experience. Gareth came to look at the job when he said he would. Two electricians arrived to undertake the work on time, they were efficient, tidy and polite. The job was completed on time and all rubbish was taken away. Would recommend and use again.
Great and friendly service, would highly recommend.
From initial quotation to job follow-up, the service was faultless. Electrician was knowledgeable, courteous and clearly walked me through various ideas and options available. Work was carried out on time/date agreed, and on budget. Would highly recommend.
Excellent workmanship. Really pleased with the finished result, can now use freezer and electrics in garage, old lights removed and replaced with new ones. System also separated from house circuit which is ideal. In addition I originally booked Steve last week but due to poor weather conditions I was unable to empty the garage and until he arrived I didn't realise he wouldn't be able to complete the work. Steve was extremely accommodating and agreed to return a week later with no fuss. I will be using him again for sure!!
Steve was really friendly, helpful and provided an excellent service. He was around the same day we called to provide a quote and completed the job quickly and efficiently. We will certainly be using him again.
Very tidy work, all sockets were flush and tidy matching well with the existing electrical fittings. Be quite happy to use him again.
Can't fault it. A good job and would definitely recommend Steve to others.
Very approachable and knowledgeable and did a really good job.
Steve has been brilliant since he got in touch last week. He came out to me the same day, and had to send off for a part and fitted it today. He even came back again last week after I thought the initial issue had got worse. He was very professional, friendly and efficient and I would happily use his services again.
Steve was very helpful and friendly. He came out the same day and repaired wiring which had been drilled through, triping out the Sockets. Very professional. Would highly recommend him. Will definitely use his services again.
Steve came out .what a great job he done .id had another electrician out who totally messed my electrics up .but Steve sorted it out so it’s all safe .and done it quickly so was only charged for an hours work .will always phone on Steve now .very happy customer.
Our experience with Steve was exceptional. He responded to our cry for help very quickly and fitted us in to his busy schedule the following day. He arrived when he said he would and quickly sorted things out for us. As it happened, he did not have to carry out any work as such and, as a result, he did not charge us a penny. For his speed of service alone we give him 5 stars and he is at the top of our list to call on, should we ever require any "real" electrical work to be carried out in the future. We will also recommend him to anyone we know who needs an electrician.
Steve has now completed the work, first class service.
an amazing service. Steve was able to solve my electrical problems so quickly without fuss or expense.a great service from start to finish .I was so grateful.
We had several small electrical replacement fittings to do around the house.Steve was excellent at communicating, gave a great quote, turned up on time and completed the work quickly and cleanly. Will always use from now on and would thoroughly recommend.
Steve was fantastic from initial call to installing a new shower fan he was both courteous and professional and knew his stuff complete expert! I would highly recommend him and will definitely use him again it was a pleasure to do business with him.
