6 Signs Your House May Need Rewiring
We tend to take it for granted that a constantly flow of electricity feeds our lighting, warmth, TV and mobile devices day and night. Of course we do! The network of cables which provide that electricity is hidden behind switches and sockets. So how do we know if there’s a problem when we can’t actually see how our homes are wired?
In this blog we’re going to look at 6 signs that your house may need rewiring. If you experience any of these, we would recommend calling out your local electrician to check your electrical installation sooner rather than later. When it comes to your home electrics it’s definitely a case of ‘better safe than sorry’.
Local Electrical Contractor in West Bromwich
Just 5 miles outside Birmingham city centre, West Bromwich nevertheless feels like it’s a town with it’s own distinct identity. But that may have something to do with it being the home of West Bromwich Albion, the fortunes of which have always had a huge impact on the town. When they’re playing well, and winning cups, the town booms.
Like all the Black Country towns around it, West Bromwich started out as a village and grew rapidly thanks to its coal. Now it’s known for its football, its great market, and its shopping. This is a town that’s kicked back against the Merry Hill competition, and regenerated its town centre, and its local community.
For centuries Wolverhampton made its money from the wool trade. Then came the Industrial Revolution and like all the towns and cities in the Midlands it became a global producer of coal and steel. For many Midland towns, the industrial bonanza is a thing of the past, but Wolverhampton has managed to maintain its engineering industry, as well as developing expertise in the aerospace sector.
Wolverhampton is a thriving 21st century city that’s proud of its industrial history – it regularly hosts a Black Country Festival celebrating the region! Contract Labour Solutions electrical engineers are always delighted to have the opportunity to visit our commercial and domestic clients across this diverse, adaptable city.
Looking for Birmingham Electricians?
When was the moment we decided to set up Contract Labour Solutions in our home city of Birmingham? There isn’t one simple answer to that, but we all agree that working on the iconic Library of Birmingham in 2013 was a pivotal moment for us. We’d witnessed the gradual transformation of Birmingham city centre over the years, but being a part of it was a tremendous buzz – it made us proud to be Brummies!
Since then, we’ve continued to be part of the reshaping of the city. Contract Labour Solutions provided the electrical installation for the new HSBC headquarters on Bridge Street. And just this year we completed the electrical installation for another iconic building; this time it was Project Apple, also part of the Arena Central development on Bridge Street.
Looking for Electrical Contractors in Walsall?
It’s thought that the name ‘Walsall’ derives from ‘Walh Halh’ which means ‘valley of the Welsh speakers’. The town sits resolutely in the West Midlands, though, 55 miles east of the Welsh border and just 8 miles from Birmingham city centre. Walsall is one of the towns forged by the Industrial Revolution, which is when it became a global leader in the production of leather goods. Now, its proximity to the M6 has transformed it from a producer to a distributor of goods.
Contract Labour Solutions electrical engineers are regular visitors to the town – in fact, we remember visiting the famous illuminations at the Arboretum as kids. Now, though, our role is to install, maintain and repair electrics, rather than wonder at them! And we’ve never yet met anyone speaking Welsh in Walsall…
