The pictures below show examples of my installation work but in no way indicate limits to what I can offer, so please contact me for a detailed chat.
|Recessed spot lighting is a popular theme but if not done properly can cause issues with heat build up and energy inefficiency. In the installation below LED fittings have been installed into a panelled ceiling to provide an attractive installation with low running costs.
|Fed up with the kids leaving the lights on? In the installation below an occupancy sensor has been installed along with these IP rated LED downlights into a plasterboard bathroom ceiling. The white light from these LED lamps provides a clean look at a total of just 20W and are automatically turned off when not needed.
|Wall lights need not mean unsightly supply cables. Embedding cables for a neat, clean finish makes your lighting look like an integral part of the surroundings rather than something simply slapped onto it.
|Stylish lighting such as this cold cathode kitchen installation can make a striking difference to a room in place of a traditional ceiling rose or batten fitting.
|If you have an old rewirable fuse box such as that pictured below left, then having it changed out for a modern consumer unit with circuit breaker and RCD protection will give you the benefit of improved safety and convenience in the event of a fault.
|Recessed LED spotlights are much more efficient than their halogen counterparts, but the right bulbs must be selected for the optimum lighting of any given room. These LED lamps are ideal in this hallway installation.
|Revamping a room is the ideal time to replace tired looking socket faceplates with something more modern or to install additional sockets to accommodate the extra gadgets of 21st century life!
|Flatscreen TV's look attractive when hung from the wall but the right fittings must be used to keep it secure, and cables should be concealed to make it look like a natural part of the room as in this bedroom.
|IP rated outdoor sockets with RCD protection are a handy addition to the garden to feed lawnmowers, strimmers, pressure washers and the like.
|Mains powered linked smoke/heat alarms remove the risk of dead or missing batteries preventing you from being warned of a fire when you really need it.
|Whether a shower pump or a full electric shower requiring only a cold water feed, I can manage new installations or the replacement of a failed unit. New installations will require a plumber to get the pipework into the right place, but I can assist you in finding a reputable partner firm.
|I can provide custom installations to meet your room designs if there are particular decorative arrangements you have in mind.
|Replacement switch faceplates help to modernise a room. Switch upgrades to PIR, dimmer, smart or touch versions or the relocating of switch drops are all possible options.
|Artistic or ambient decor lighting is becoming quite popular. Whether you want to illuminate pictures, feature walls, gardens or shelving, or if you simply want to introduce some colour to a room, modern LED or fluorescent technology can make an attractive effect without costing a packet to operate.

|Battery or mains driven doorbell installations are far more reliable than those DIY wireless options.
|If you've had electric underfloor heating laid under your new laminate or tiled flooring, you'll need it hooking into the mains and a thermostat/controller fitted, all of which I can offer.
|If you have an outbuilding such as a garage, shed or greenhouse, talk to me about a modern mini consumer unit installation for lighting, heating and/or socket outlets, supplied if necessary by an overhead or underground cable.
|A rage of external lighting possibilities are available to suit your requirements including motion controlled, dusk 'til dawn sensor control, flood, spot, efficient LED and decor options.
|UV insect control helps to reduce those unwanted airborne pests in the kitchen or dining areas.
|Electric ovens and/or hobs installed on their own dedicated circuits.
|Shower priority control boards allow you to fit more electric showers into larger homes or into properties with multiple en-suites, student accommodation, etc.
|Whether in a kitchen, bathroom or en-suite, if you need an extractor fan core drilled through your wall or ducted through the roof space, then I can install it. Manual, timed or humidity controlled options are available.
Winter giving you the cold bathroom blues? A high level downflow heater provides a quick way to heat a small space when there isn't room for a heated towel rail or radiator.
|For heat where there is no plumbing such as an outbuilding, or where plumbing would be expensive or disruptive to install, electric panel radiators and storage heaters provide an effective means of keeping out the cold.
|I work with local landscapers on integrating electrics into garden designs both grand and small. Whether you have a terraced house or a country barn, if pond pumps, accent lighting or outdoor power figure in your landscaping plans then I can help you to make it a real feature. [More]
|Lights recessed into a tarmac driveway or pavement add a touch of style to an otherwise plain looking medium as pictured below in this Warwick installation performed in conjunction with Spartacus Landscaping.
|Occupancy sensor lighting, especially in bathroom or cloakroom areas, is a low cost but effective way of ensuring lights don't get left on unintentionally and provides convenience, especially for those less able-bodied.
|Electrically heated towel rails with thermostatic, boost and/or timed controls.
|Timer/boost control solutions for heating, lighting or any other application where automation can save effort and energy.
|Faultfinding and sorting out the botched mess others have left behind.
|Working with your flooring contractor to install underfloor heating solutions.
|Working with your builder to ensure first fix electrics are installed on time and where you need them....
|...before completing second fix works scheduled to coincide with completion of plastering/deorating etc.
|Dado installations/modifications customised to fit your space.
|Instantaneous hot water solutions.
