Electric Shower Replacement

Electric shower looking tired, going hot and cold for no apparent reason? Among other things, old electric showers suffer from an internal limescale build up which can cause fluctuating pressure.

The internals of an electric shower are rarely replaceable, its far more economical to just have it replaced. To replace an electric shower, we first have to check its rating, more often than not its between 7.5 – 8.5 kw. Now we replace like for like, we cannot replace a 7.5 kw shower with a 10.5 kw shower without updating the existing cabling and fusebox.

On average we can replace a like for like electric shower in a couple of hours, quality electric showers like Triton for instance retail at about £70. Contact us today to for all types of Electric Shower Replacement Services.

Exterior Light Fitting Services

Exterior floodlight and lantern light replacements. Modern floodlights tend to have a led array, this is non replaceable bulb. Both of these come with optional pir (motion sensors), again these are non-replaceable.

If any of these are failing its more economical to just replace the whole unit as they are relatively inexpensive. If you don’t have a current wired exterior light, you can always get a solar powered one which negates the cost of running new cables.

Our electricians can replace any exterior floodlight within an hour, our Handyman Electrical Services are here to brighten your day by tackling those pesky floodlights fast.

Head on over to our Rates page where you can view our hourly charges to perhaps give you a better idea of costs.

Q: Are there any electrical services you don’t provide?

A: While we provide a broad range of handyman electrician services, we don’t specialise in large-scale electrical projects like complete rewiring of properties or major electrical installations.

Our expertise is in smaller, more immediate electrical tasks such as replacing sockets and switches, installing light fittings or replacing electric showers. We focus on practical solutions for everyday electrical needs in your home.

Q: Can you upgrade my existing sockets to include USB outlets?

A: Absolutely! We specialise in upgrading old electrical sockets to newer versions with integrated USB outlets, providing added convenience for charging devices. These USB sockets take the same amount of time to fit as any other electrical socket.

Q: Do you offer services for repairing or installing exterior lighting?

A: Yes, we provide services for installing exterior lighting, including modern floodlights with LED arrays and lantern lights.

Bearing in mind, old floodlights where the normal filament bulb appears to have stopped working, in fact could be something more. As modern floodlights cost circa £20, it’s far more economical to replace.

We can also fit your chosen solar-powered lighting options which don’t require running new cables.

Q: How do you handle electric shower repairs?

A: For electric showers experiencing issues like fluctuating temperature, we recommend replacement over repair. This is often more economical due to the non-replaceable nature of their internal components.

Q: Are the electrical parts you install guaranteed?

A: Yes, all the electrical work we carry out is professionally done and guaranteed to last. We use high-quality parts and ensure each installation or repair is up to standard.

Q: Can you assist with the installation of dimmer switches?

A: Yes, we can replace traditional rocker switches with dimmer switches, allowing you to control the lighting level in your rooms for the desired ambiance.
