THIS IS FOR ELECTRICAL NEWS ONLYi is it me or does it take older guys longer to do jobs that when we was young
so, I was looking through google news this morning and i saw and advert for a device that I thought was TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE interesting that the device shown in the independant news footage is not the same as the little plug in unit that they are selling. Now I was under the impression that domestic meters in the uk measure in Kwh not in Kva and therefore don't penalise us for having a poor power factor. the advert from google actually states that it can reduce your bill by up to 90% and...
I was thinking of getting Chas registered and wanted to know if it's worthwhile or whether another one like constructionline is better? I would like to be able to work for the local authority and also for residential and commercial letting agents.

Does anyone know if there is any outside contractors who just do wall chasing in London?
Hello can anyone offer and advice on running power to an workshop. All work will be done by a professional electrician, I am merely seeing if my idea is feasible. So far I have 6mm swa prysmian cable buried according to reg, sand bedded and warning tape over etc 6.5 metre run. I have recently had a new electric oven installed which is 240v 2075w. I have an unused switched supply on the kitchen ring main for an old baseboard heater. Would the following be possible, connect the over to the...
I guess you could file this under hints and tips. When you're installing a socket the worst part, for me at least, is pushing it into place and keeping it there while you tighten the screws. That means bending the cables, however many there are. It can be quite a feat of strength and and a bit nerve racking. I have actually cracked a few new sockets in the past and had to replace again. I use pointed nose pliars to bend them but it's still a pain and a struggle. What do you guys do? Is...

So I’m currently studying Ze and pfc etc kind of understanding it. main question really is about the relationship between them both I understand that the lower the Ze the higher the fault current but why is this? Is it just simply to do with ohms law? And I’m just over thinking and confusing myself Any responses would be appreciated
Looking for some advice..... I work with a 4 zone heating timer programmer. Zone1 = kitchen,hall & towel rail but just in the last week when the heating goes off the towel rail comes straight back on so it must be something to do with towel rail signal as kitchen & hall heaters go off. The Timer clock is only 1 year old so can't be that. Can it be anything to do with pilot wire interface connected to the towel rail?
I have moved in 3 days to a flat which seems to have a lot of problems. I have not had hot water yet and the agent tells me I will pay for a call-out if it will be something simple and I could have found it on the internet.. So I am paranoid. The red light is on. I usually would have a shower around 1 am but there was never hot water in the bathroom or kitchen regardless of the time. I also found next to the water container that all switches were on but the isolator switch was off. Is that...
 
Do I need to upgrade the gas and water bond and upgrade main earth to pass the EICR?
Hi Anyone point in the right direction, I'm looking for an apprenticeship having already done my level 2 and 3 electrical installation and testing city and guilds at Dudley college. Im.based in Halesowen West Midlands. I'm a quick learner and take pride in my work. Any help appreciated. Cheers
(Rented property) The current bonding under the sink is 6mm - the electrician said it has to be min 10mm in order to pass the EICR. Is this correct? It looks like the wire has been there since the house was built and electrician said he would have to take a new one from the fuse box and somehow get this under the sink (go through ceilings etc as fuse box font of house and kitchen is at the back) Is this correct? Any advice would be much appreciated!
