extractor fan

There’s nothing like a refreshing shower in the lovely hot weather we’re having. So here’s some important trivia for you!

Did you know, that any room with a Bath or Shower is divided into “Zones” for the purposes of Electrical Safety?
 
Any light fitting, switch, shaver unit, fan or device MUST be approved for use in the Zone in which it’s going to be used.
Zone 0 is inside the bath or shower itself.
Zone 1 is directly over the bath or shower up to 2.25m high.
Zone 2 is a 60cm area further outside of Zone 1
 
Take a look around your bathroom and make sure you’re happy about your electrics. If not, get a Part P Approved Electrician to check it out.
 
Also remember, if you have a shower cubicle in a bedroom, you can’t have a 13amp socket within 3 meters of it. Keep Safe and if you need any advice call us on 01772 615428 or email us
 

Zone information from Currelec

Currelec received an anguished call for help from a lovely family, around teatime yesterday. They were expecting friends and were preparing a special meal when the electricity went off in their third floor apartment! They said they had tried resetting things to no avail and now the burglar alarm was going off!

It was pouring with rain and I didn’t know what to expect – water leak maybe? I arrived to find no electricity supply to the apartment at all. So I reset the alarm, switched everything off and went on walkabout in the building. I eventually found the main breaker for their apartment and reset it. On returning to the apartment, I was able to restore and test the system circuit by circuit until we found the culprit – the kitchen hob extractor! This was quickly repaired and I went on my way.

The only regret I had was heading out into the rain and leaving behind the lovely smell of cooking! I’m sure they all enjoyed their evening and the “Thank you” text was much appreciated.

We’ve been doing a number of jobs for a client, which included the installation of a ‘silent’ bathroom extractor fan. What a total transformation! The unit we supplied was one of the latest direct replacement ‘quiet fans’ at a very reasonable price. It’s so quiet, it’s almost impossible to hear it running and it uses much less electricity too. So, if like many people, you find the rattle and buzz of your bathroom extractor a pain, let us come and sort it for you.
Oh, and it looks fairly nice too!
