Emergency Electricians Manchester & Salford
There is never a convenient time for our electrics to fail, it always happens at the worst possible moment in time. Typically, you get home from work and walk in after collecting the kids from school and there are no lights, the fridge has defrosted, it’s dark and you have no idea what to do, you can’t even see your way to your consumer unit to investigate. Simply pick up your mobile phone and find us, you can just click our webpage to automatically dial our number a one of our skilled technicians will be able to advise you on what to do whilst we set off on our way to help.
Most domestic electrical faults are relatively easy to resolve, typically you will have a tripping RCD (Residual Current Device) or an RCBO (Residual Current Breaker with Overload). These devices are designed to avoid electric shock, however they can be extremely sensitive and will trip out with even a mild flow of current through the earth. Another common fault can be a dysfunctional appliance which can be easily isolated. In any event simply call us on 07749730033 and we will be able to help.
Common Electrical Problems
Frequently Tripping Breakers
This is common when there is too much demand on a single circuit, typically this can be in a kitchen when all appliances are being used. You should consider having the circuit upgraded to a ring main or adding a new circuit.
Frequently Tripping RCD
Your consumer unit will usually have 2 RCD'd thus splitting up the installation, once you have identified which RCD is tripping, switch off all breakers to the left of the RCD then switch on the RCD and wait to see if it doesn't trip. With any luck it won't and after a few minutes switch on each circuit one by one leaving a few minutes interval between breakers. Hopefully you will be able to identify which circuit is faulty, just leave this switched off and wait for us to visit.
Lightbulbs Burning Out Frequently
This can often be much more serious than just overuse and could spell of worn insulation within the wiring which will need to be tested by performing insulation resistance test on the entire circuit.
Warm Sockets or Switches
This can be the sign of damaged or faulty conductors and be the cause of fire, Call us out immediately.

Our clients said
After we had our summer house constructed we decided we wanted to convert it into a studio for our entertainment business. We have several keyboards, amplifiers and sound recording equipment not to mention no heating or lighting. Able Electricians were able to solve this problem for us and we are very pleased with the result.
