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.

What we thought to be a simple fault turned out to be a big investigation to find the fault, then fix it. It wasnt easy as the house is a nightmare, as we previously discovered! However, Alfie was great. Very diligent and hard working. He solved the issue and I would definitely highly recommend him. We would certainly use his services again.
A warm thank you to GES, especially Alfie who discussed the job and suggested solutions at our pre-meet phone call. Alfie arrived on site within time specified, was very, professional, respectful, polite and helpful. I really appreciated being briefed at the condition of the electrics and shown areas of concern. Due to the water damage in my outbuilding together with poor wiring and a dated circuit board, Alfie came up with a solution that was aesthetically pleasing, affordable, and more importantly, meets with current regulations. Alfie also suggested cosmetic and security solutions to the front facade of my house that I may wish to consider at some point in the future and without the hard sell! If you want that piece of mind at a competitive price, then I highly recommend GES for all electrical works.
We chose Alfie because of his extensive experience, which met our needs, and his competitive pricing. We found him to be very professional, friendly and approachable. Nothing was to much trouble and he went the extra mile to make things safe in our home. He was easy to contact and solved any problem that we might put his way. He was very reliable. We recommend Alfie to anybody that has electrical needs, he is second to none. Thank you Alfie !
Had 3 double sockets installed in my conservatory and an extension to my outdoor lighting. Alfie and his team did an impeccable job, kept everywhere neat and tidy and the finished work was first class Thanks again

Alfie did a lot of work for us from the beginning when we just got our house, he helped us rewire the whole house and put switches and sockets exactly where we wanted them. He also helped us with all the lights and all other small electrical work. We will be calling him again for sure!
