Rich is a top guy, pays attention to detail with his fittings and takes care in your home. He spent time going through the controls and the features and checking the work. I will be using him again - when we do our next smart upgrade. Top job.

Had art of smart change our consumer unit today, very happy with the result from a very friendly and professional company. Impressed with the attention to detail and the neatness of all works undertaken. Also there was no fuss even considering the extra work and time required for the unforeseen issue sthat cropped up, which were all taken in his stride.
Many thanks again, we will be in touch again soon.

If your thinking of upgrading ( or needing to upgrade like I was due to a faulty central heating programmer) then look no further than Rich Heppell from The Art of Smart. He installed a Nest smart heating controller this afternoon for me. Excellent service provided from his company, smart controller installed, additional electrical work carried out, app set up and demonstrated on
i pad, everything left very clean and tidy and all for a very competitive price.
Cheers Rich, appreciate everything you did today �
Highly recommend The Art of Smart.

I asked Rich to wire up an oldschool Hi-Fi system for me in my new home; Maranzt amplifier with a pair of Mission speakers, I know the basics but I wanted it to be neat. He suggested I buy a sonos connect which i'd never heard of to enable me to connect to the system with spotify from my phone which was a fantastic idea. He fitted it all for me to an extremely high standard running all the wires (which he provided I might add) behind the skirting and got everything updated and synced. I can now play new music at the drop of a hat but with that fantastic sound of a proper hi fi. I personally will never use another electrician, perfectionist and all round top guy. Do not hesitate to go ahead with The Art Of Smart!

Rich and Art Of Smart always do an awesome job, his "out of the box" thinking is quite inspirational, want Alexa to control outdoor lights, pass him a pen and he brings the concept to life, 1 hour later and Alexa does my outdoor lights! Heating, lighting, security, all by the power of voice and made simple and cost effective, I would highly recommend Art Of Smart, get them in and watch their creative juices flow, you won't be disappointed!

Thank you to Rich and his friendly team - I was very impressed with their knowledge, speed, cleanliness and they've done a great job of the double Nest Installation we had done today. I will be recommending them and would definitely use him in the future for any smart home products and installations.

Rich is an absolute credit to himself and his business, he is punctual, professional and hugely knowledgable. He sets himself apart from his competitors by paying attention to every detail and making sure he cleans up after himself. Once our Nest system was installed he set aside time to make sure we understood how to get the best performance from it. I wouldn’t hesitate to ask Rich to do further work for me as well as my friends and family.

Just had my home consumer unit upgraded and relocated, earthing sorted out (including new earth spike) and some solar PV kit moved along with a few other wiring jobs. Art of smart were excellent, from quote to completion of the work everything was highly professional and the finished result is exceptionally neat. I'd be reluctant to let anyone else touch my house wiring again!

Having enjoyed a Nest Smart thermostat at our previous house, and knowing that we were moving in the new year I was eager to take up a Black Friday offer on local installation by Art of Smart. Rich and Paul came to install Nest in our new home on a Sunday evening. We had just moved in so they worked very well around the chaos and were keen to not disrupt us for too long. Rich explained the placement options and we agreed to use the original thermostat wiring and install next to the defunct mechanical stat and make good that previous space at a later date. Art of Smart were tidy and thorough in testing and explaining how it works. Unfortunately Nest didn’t behave itself in the absence of our forthcoming internet connection and Rich was excellent at responding to my concerns that night and returned before work the next day to iron out the bugs. Rich is even looking into a separate electrical issue that our ageing boiler was showing and provided a handy work around. Art of Smart are clued up and eager to put customer satisfaction as their highest priority so I heartily recommend.

Fantastic home automation and electricians. Have used several times to do the full works around the house. Go above and beyond every time, and always happy to give free advice with remote support on the home automation. As an engineer myself I know what look for in professionals and Art of Smart would be on my team any day.

Absolutely fantastic. I recently asked Rich to undertake some electrical work at my house. I wanted some additional electric sockets so I could have items in my house where I wanted them as opposed to where the existing sockets dictated I put things. He came round to access the job and then provided me with a comprehensive written quotation for the required work. As soon as I gave him the go ahead he gave me a date for when the work would be carried out. Extremely impressed with his hardworking methodical approach to his work. Before starting any of the processes needed to carry out the work he'd explain fully what he was going to do, which walls would have to be channelled out, which floorboards lifted etc keeping me fully informed throughout the day. Whilst he was doing the sockets I asked if it would be possible to run a data cable from my broadband router upstairs to my son's room, who is a keen gamer and prefers his computer to be hardwired rather than Wi-Fi. Rich was very happy to do this and had everything needed to do the job with him, he even put in an extra socket, at no extra cost, so my Son could plug all his gaming stuff in under his desk instead of having an extension lead trailing round the room which had always been the case before. Don't expect to be left with a load of cleaning afterwards either, Rich will not let you clean up, he insists on cleaning up as he goes and even brings his own vacuum with him. I cannot praise his level of workmanship and professionalism enough. I would have no hesitation in recommending him and if I require further work doing I would not go anywhere else. You can always tell if someone loves what they are doing it's shows in the end result and Rich definitely loves his work.

Buying a property that needs excessive work doing to it it’s always going to be a challenge, however having the right people around you makes all the difference. I approached Richard at the art of smart because I knew his reputation, ability, and timeliness. On our initial meeting at the property Richard was very helpful in giving me tips and ideas on how the electric functions of the property would work well. He was also honest about the state of the current wiring and what changes need to be made to make the house safe and well functioning. His quote came through for the work very quickly afterwards, and his price was extremely competitive, especially considering some of the unprofessional service and quotes I had received before him. Work commenced on the property quite quickly and the communication was always excellent between myself and Richard on when he would be there what work would be completed and what was left to finish. This was great for me being able to communicate with my other tradesmen to ensure everyone could work well together and manage the process well.
On the first fix Richard and his team were excellent in sorting the house, stripping down the wiring and getting the house ready in its bare stare for the plasterers and plumbers to complete their part of the process. On his second fix Richard exclled in wiring my fixtures back together in a very clean and swift manner leaving minimal dirt at the property like he’d never been there!! His team were polite and friendly and speaking to my neighbours the noise they made was very minimal and they were always polite to them as well.
The new electrics box is clearly labelled and I was given a thorough walkthrough of my new services he had fitted ensuring that I was completely capable of using them before he left. The lights are really bright and the bathroom additions he has opted for are fantastic! I even have sensors lights out front. Everything has been catered for directly to the spec we planned.
I’m extremely pleased with Richard and his team, they have a great mentality for providing friendly professional service and the workmanship is second to none. Thanks again and when I need my next property developing they will be the first people to call.
I will also post some photos on this page once the final finishings of the plasterer and plumber are complete.

I can honestly say this company is absolutely amazing! I bought a house which needed a fair few bits doing and Richie complety took all the stress away from me. He kept in constant communication about when I would gets keys and quoted quickly for me so I knew the cost I was looking at. Richie started two days after I got keys, fitting me quickly so I could have my house back. The service, communication and quality of work is 5* I couldn't recommend him enough. Plus the added bonus of him cleaning up extremely well to :) jobs all done in a couple of days - New sockets, extractor fan, nest heating, nest smoke alarms, alarm system, downlighters, light fitting, outside light, arieal points.
