The very meaning of the words  Electrical Emergency gives us a sense of dread, but the fact of the matter is that we all go through some form of emergency from time to time. Here at RM Plumbing & Electrical, we understand that there is no perfect timing for an “emergency”.

So we are proud to announce that we do our best to be your number one choice when it comes to needing an emergency electrician in Cardiff.

We also know that emergencies such as power loss have a significant negative impact not just on domestic properties, but commercial properties too. Our expert electricians have over 10 years of experience in dealing with emergency electrical situations so with RM Plumbing & Electrical you are in very safe hands.

We have an excellent brand reputation which we have worked hard to build by exceeding customer expectations in terms of the quality of our work and our excellent customer care standards.

It is vital when dealing with electricity that you get an expert in to ensure that all work is done safely and efficiently. So if you don’t know your diamond pliers from your lineman’s pliers, or your voltmeter from your unibit or step-bit please ensure that you don’t do the work yourself as this could result in you getting an electric shock!!

All of our electrical engineers wear personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect themselves from any hazards that could occur and are Part P Electrical Safety registered Installers. You need to have a full understanding of electronics to avoid things such as an electric arc or an arc flash. Electrical flashover, or arc flash, is one of the most deadly and least understood hazards of electricity and is prevalent in most industries.

The thermal energy from arc flash, however, can actually be worse and more common at a lower voltage and can cause devastating, severe burn injury, and even death. You need an electrician who knows his way around a breaker panel or who can test for stray voltage!

Knowledge is king when it comes to electrics and we have over 10 years of expert knowledge gained by qualifications and experience.

Rewiring a home can be a major issue if it is not done by an experienced professional. We has over 10 years of experience in providing electrical services to businesses and homes all around the country.

Electricity Tripping Out

Do not make the mistake of constantly resetting your circuit breakers; our electrical engineers are experts in fault finding and diagnosis. If a circuit often trips it could be the sign of faulty wiring or accessory or an issue with an appliance that may be causing a fault on the circuit.

Flickering Lights And Blown Bulbs

Flickering lights can be a sign of faulty wiring or loose connection issues. Do your lamps repeatedly blow? The most common cause for this is as a result of using cheap supermarket lamps. Always use quality lamps from a branded manufacturer.

Light Switches Or Sockets That Give A Small Electric Shock

If you receive a shock of any size from metal switches or sockets then call us immediately. It may be a sign of serious earthing issues.

Sparking Sockets Or Switches

Have you ever noticed a spark when switching on a switch or socket? This can be an early sign of a worn accessory and if left unchecked can lead to an electric shock.

Smell Of Burning

A burning smell could be a sign of the start of an electrical fire. Typically when an electrical accessory starts to overheat it gives off a distinctive and slightly fishy smell.  If you think you have an issue then you should switch off your electrics at the consumer unit and contact us straight away.

Outdated Electrics

Many homes in Cardiff and the surrounding areas are quite traditional and therefore have a range of electric issues due to being installed possibly 50 years ago. This can mean a full rewire is needed, or it can be just that you need more sockets in some of your rooms.
