ABOUT

 Specialist Domestic Electricians based in Abingdon

ASKES

Alan Knight, who owns and completes the work at ASK Electrical Solutions, is a forward thinking domestic electrician using the ever changing electrical regulations to complete electrical work in a safer, methodical and more efficient way.

Our area of service is mainly Abingdon and the surrounding villages. However, we have existing customers as far a field as Evesham in Worcestershire and Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire.

Our core projects from conception to completion, which are often bespoke ones, include Part/Full Rewires, Consumer Unit(Fuseboard) Upgrades, LED Lighting, Security Lighting/CCTV/Alarms, Mains Smoke Alarms, Modern Electric Heating, Armoured cabling for outdoor electrics. We also undertake small jobs such as replacing broken sockets and light switches, replacing light fittings, installing new kitchen appliances, fault finding/tripping electrics etc. 

We do not cut corners and take genuine care to complete the works as professionally and neatly as possible, ensuring you are totally satisfied with our work. We are also happy and prefer to book appointments to ensure we complete the works at a mutually convenient date and time.

ASK Electrical Solutions have also been assessed and endorsed by Which? Trusted Traders. The Which? brand is synonymous with rigorous testing and best buys and this is the reason why we wanted to be part of Which Trusted Traders. Also as an Elecsa Part P Domestic Electrician, we are assessed annually, whereby an Elecsa Assessor spends half a day with us checking insurances, health and safety etc are up to date, quizzing us on the latest regulations and visiting one of our customers to check our work and to check that we test electrics correctly.

When we survey a job, we will estimate the costs based on your actual job rather than a generic cost for the job you require completing. Our estimates and invoices detail both the labour and materials, including the actual materials used and on larger jobs also the dates and hours worked for the labour charge.


FAQ's

Q. How do I know if an electrician is authorised to carry out electrical work in my home?

A. The following website which we suggest you check www.electricalcompetentperson.co.uk lists all electricians who are registered to work for householders in England and Wales, such as ourselves. If they aren't on this register then they shouldn't be undertaking electrical work in your home. This is particularly relevant to handymen, kitchen fitters, bathroom fitters, builders etc, who say they can do electrics! Insurance companies do not take kindly to unauthorised tradesmen completing electrical work in homes. Please beware!

Q. Why do I need a Part P Domestic Electrician to install my electrics for me? Surely all you need is common sense!

A. Some DIYers can install additional lights and sockets, but because they have no knowledge of the regulations they believe that just because the lights work when they turn them on that they have done a good job. But unless the circuit is tested correctly by a Part P Domestic Electrician, how do they know that the circuit can function under fault conditions and it is under fault conditions that people's lives and property are at risk. Also, if there is a fire, which was caused by an electrical circuit or accessory, will an insurance company pay out if it hadn't been tested and tested regularly to make sure it was safe.

Q. What forms of payment do you accept?

A. We accept payment electronically by BACS or by Chip and Pin. However, we do not accept payment by cheque, in line with most businesses nowadays.
