Electrical Maintenance

It is important to carry out electrical maintenance on a regular basis; maintaining all the electrical fittings, appliances and devices in and around your home.
Maintenance enhances the smooth running of all the electricity powered items in your home, while creating a safe environment that will be free from all sorts of hazards. Home safety is obviously one of the most dearly held goals by most, if not all, homeowners everywhere.
A home is designed to be a safe haven for its dwellers, and therefore anything and everything that favours home safety should always be accorded first priority.
Electrical maintenance for the home is without question, one of the foremost and sure steps towards fostering a safe home. Of the various ways there are of maintaining your home’s electrical fixtures, the most efficient way is to make certain that it passes regular checks on all electrical installations in your home.
That will, in most cases, be best accomplished by an experienced accredited electrician contracted by you.The cheapest electrician near you in the Colcot area 4

The Importance of Proper and Timely Electrical Maintenance

When regular electrical maintenance checks are carried out for a home, various unwelcome mishaps associated with electricity can be easily avoided by catching problems early.

A regular electrical check can pay for itself by avoiding very high expenses of repairing, or even replacing badly affected electrical devices due to small problems that would have otherwise not have been detected.

In terms of home safety rather than cost, maintenance of key electrical components will ensure that your family safety is upheld.
Below are three key points where proper and timely electrical maintenance translates directly to home safety:

  • Outdoor Lighting The outdoor lighting in your home does a lot for your home safety.
    For one, it ensures that your porches and walkways are well lit and thus safe for both you and your guests at night.
    The other thing that they do is deter thieves and burglars, who always prefer to operate in the dark. The light fixtures, bulbs and lines of your outdoor lighting require regular checks and replacements because of the very nature of them being outdoors subjected to the elements.
    Having an accredited electrician carry out such checks on a regular basis will ensure that, at no point, will your outdoor area be left dark.
  • DIY Risks The urge to do things yourself when it comes to taking care of your home is always there, and often comes with a great feeling of satisfaction and fulfilment.
    Even though DIY appears to be a good idea there are some things that are advisably better left to the experts, and electrical repairs must surely top that list. With a properly planned electrical maintenance schedule and a reliable contractor, you will never feel the need to attempt to replace your old wiring or repair a broken socket, because that can be a very dangerous thing to attempt if you are not trained.
  • Fire Hazards A home fire can obviously be very devastating and frightening to the homeowner, and that is to say the least since such fires can result in the loss of lives. Electrical faults are one of the leading causes of fires in homes and almost always occur as a result of problems associated with the wiring.
    Heat from the wiring can, over time, degrade their protective covering to a point where it gets completely broken down.
    When that happens, bare wires could make contact each other, shorting and sparking up a fire within the walls of your home or other areas where these cables run. There are normally signs that would, if recognised, alert you when your wiring has become old and degraded.
    These include the constant tripping of breaker switches, brown and discoloured wall sockets or outlets, and at the extreme, an occasional electrical shock you might get when plugging in an appliance or simply touching it while it is plugged in.

However, when you are at that point of being able to notice those signs, it often means that the problems with your wiring are at their extreme. The best thing is to have regular checks done by an accredited electrician to always be on the safe side.

Here are a few facts about Colcot

Colcot is a northern district of Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, in the Dyfan ward of South Wales. Dyfan ward is situated in the north west of Barry and its most northern edge is on the green belt of the town. Port Road West runs through the ward and is the main route to Cardiff and Cardiff International Airport in Rhoose. Dyfan benefits from a sports centre and Buttrills recreation field and The Barry Hospital can be found on Colcot Road.[1] It also contains the Colcot Primary School, the Colcot Arms pub, the St David's Methodist Church, Coastlands Family Church, a fish and chip shop/Chinese takeaway, Barry Arts Centre and Merthyr Dyfan Cemetery.

Nearby Merthyr Dyfan contained land belonging to a sub manor of Cadoxton. It contained two carucates and 240 customary acres of arable land, and there was a court or grange belonging to it in Colcot.[2]
Historically the farms Colcot Fawr and Colcot Ganol were in the vicinity, and a Collcot Farm is also mentioned in 1784.[3] Colcot Fawr, once belonging to a John Love, was situated on the west side of Colcot Road,[4] likely near where the Barry Comprehensive School now is. A prosperous farmer, he made his will in 1667 and died shortly afterwards in 1668; he is buried at Merthyr Dyfan church.[5] The property was taken over by Thomas Love, who held Colcot Fawr until his death in 1683 when he is documented to have given £20 to his sisters Anne Love and Margaret Richard, and to his nephews and nieces, and a handsome number of his possessions to his brother Arnold.[6] Anne is documented to have died in 1690, worth £41 and owed £29, 3 shillings.[7]
