HomeCert have conducted multiple works at my property including installing a NEST control for heating; installing a new RCD and conducting other works such as replacing an extractor fan. The staff are always knowledgeable, timely, polite, tidy - and honest! HomeCert is responsive and definitely a contact to save to your list. More...

Really happy with the recent work from HomeCert covering new pendant light fittings, external lights, new sockets, fitting new towel rails, co2 and heat sensors.
Pleasant and professional at all times, kept me informed of progress and did such a great job at tidying up after, I couldn’t work out how they’d got the sensors in the ceiling! Would always recommend and definitely have back again for any more work.

The service was very good. Good value and the electrician was done within the hour. He went and bought a motion sensor light for me and fitted it which saved me a lot of hassle. He also helped me fix my electric hob while he was there which literally broke as he walked through the door. Would 100% recommend them to any friends More...

I would like to add my reccomendation for HomeCert. One of the company's electricians, Paul, came to do some work for me yesterday and I was very pleased with the service. Paul fitted two ceiling chandeliers, replaced a faulty dimmer and refitted a loose plug socket. He was punctual and efficient, and tidied up all mess as he went (which was very helpful considering I had two small children in the house). I also asked Paul for advice on new lighting for our garden. He had lots of good suggestions and clearly a great deal of experience in this field. The company regularly install new garden lighting systems for clients, so he was able to suggest what types of lights might work for our situation. We will definitely use HomeCert again and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. More...

Mike from HomeCert replaced some transformers for our kitchen spotlights in early August.We were just in the process of moving house and wanted to ensure the spots worked okay for the new buyers. Mike came out at very short notice, was on time, polite - and kind enough to stay on in our empty house after we left with the removal van to finish the job off. He ensured the lights were restored to full working order, left the site clean and tidy, and was kind enough to lock up afterwards! Highly recommended - Mike’s number is 0207 205 2255 if you want to get in touch. More...

Q&As

Knowing that our clients are satisfied and happy with the work we've done. It's great to know we've helped them and to know the client now has what they want, be it a new light hung or a new socket installed, or if they've lost power and we've got them back up and running again, it's just a great feeling to know you've helped them.

At HomeCert we wanted to be able to go create work for ourselves and our electricians, and to provide a great service for our clients. We wanted to build a company we could be proud of.

HomeCert are a great choice because we always try our utmost to deliver to your expectations and beyond. Naturally, we ourselves are clients to other services in life and we would expect a great service, we understand then that our clients shouldn't get anything less than great service as well.

Our services are not online or remote. We come to the property to carry out the work

At HomeCert Ltd we are taking robust measures to ensure that the wellbeing of our clients, their tenants and our employees is of paramount importance during the global outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID- 19).

We are closely monitoring the official advice given by both the World Health Organisation and the guidelines from Public Health England on the steps we are undertaking. We are vigilant in ensuring all of our engineers have been fully briefed and are constantly updated on the ongoing situation.

We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene across the properties we visit at all times and in response to the Coronavirus, we have taken the following measurements to ensure the safety of all parties involved. In consultation of global and local public health authorities advice (including the WHO and Public Health England) we will adhere to the following in order to make our attendance and hygiene protocols whilst on site even more rigorous:

All staff and engineers are using the strongest hand cleaning and high-grade disinfectant products proven to be effective against Coronavirus
All of our staff are using latex gloves at all times to avoid transmission from touching points likely to pass on infection including door handles, handrails, tables etc
All staff and engineers are using plastic boot covers and informed to remove footwear where possible in the property
All staff and engineers are using protective masks at all times whilst in the property

Services

We can troubleshoot any electrical installation, when problems are found we consult and inform you before replacing any defective equipment or cables. We aim to solve your electrical issues in the least amount of time. One of the most important factors in doing this is the approach used, we use a methodical approach with professional equipment and instruments that allow us to logically and systematically analyse a circuit to determine exactly what is wrong. If you are experiencing difficulties call us now and we will get you up and running in no time at all.

Formerly known as a PIR (Periodic Inspection Report) there are many reasons why a householder might request an EICR and indeed they are highly recommended where proof may be required to show an electrical installation is safe. One of the more common reasons an EICR is requested is in rented accommodation where an EICR is the most straightforward and least time consuming method of proving an electrical installation is safe. We would advise the following time frames below

You can visually check your consumer unit or fuse board yourself to see if it has an RCD or not, they are usually double the width of a normal breaker and should have a test button on marked with a “T”. If this device is not present then it is highly likely that you will need a Consumer Unit Upgrade. As of January 2017 all new installations of consumer units and fuse boards require them to have a metal housing, if your consumer unit is also not made of metal then it is recommended by us to upgrade, though do not confuse the older metal fuse boards as being compliant as they will not have RCD protection.

Regular portable appliance testing (PAT) supports health & safety.
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 requires that electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe working order.
For an appliance to be deemed portable you don’t have to be able to lift it and move it elsewhere, a portable appliance is any appliance that is portable from the mains electricity supply by unplugging it. It does not matter which type of plug it is as long as the appliance doesn’t need an electrician to unwire it. Examples of appliances include hair-driers, computers, fridges, washing machines, etc

If you are buying or living in a property which is more than 10 years old, it is important to check that the wiring is up to date and still safe for continued use. Bad electrics can be a serious fire hazard and can lead to injury or electrocution. This is why electrics were brought into the building regulations under Part P on the 1st January 2005. Prior existing wiring installations are not covered, however, if you make significant alterations or new additions to the wiring in your home, the regulations come into force. We certificate all our work and we are fully insured, all of our electricians are competent and experienced in electrical installation, giving you the confidence and peace of mind that HomeCert will take care of your electrics. Contact us today to see how we can help you.
