Fault finding

Fault testing

Finding and correcting faults can be time-consuming, but with Tack Electrical you are always in control.

We will work no more than one hour on fault finding. At this point, we will give you a full update followed by a fixed price quotation or an estimated time for completion. Our team are all very approachable and will ensure you have all the information you need to make an informed decision on what course of action to take.

Don’t let faults lie. They will not go away on their own, and in many cases come back when you least expect it.

Common symptoms of faults in older installations

  • Lights going dim when using appliances
  • Fuse blowing without cause
  • Burning smell when using appliances
  • Arcing or cracking noise from switches
  • Green liquid substance around connections
  • Burning smell from switches
  • Older style sockets and switches

If any of this gives you cause for concern, please get in touch today and let us put your mind at rest.
