Landlords and Airbnb hosts know that thanks to increasingly higher standards of wiring and installation, domestic electrical systems are now generally safer than ever for tenants and paying guests. However, the use of electricity in rented properties / Airbnbs have the potential to cause substantial damage to property and serious personal injury.
Homes built 4 decades ago simply weren't equipped for the power supply necessary for modern life.
• Electrical circuit breakers trip more frequently. This is usually an indication that your appliances are either trying to pull more power than they can handle, or there is something amiss somewhere in your wiring circuits. If you notice that you are tripping breakers on regularly, it's time for an inspection.
• Lights dimming or flickering when you turn on other appliances. This is another red flag that your electrical wiring is not handling the demands that modern appliances and 2020 electronics are trying to pull. Should you notice that your lights are dimming lights when the fridge freezer or air conditioning kicks in, it's time to call 07940 110015 for a quick inspection on site at no charge.
• Multiple extension cords or adapters to create additional electrical outlets for 3 pin plugs. Should you need an extension cord to get power to your phone charger, or you're relying on a 4 gang power strip for your living room lights and lamps, Lux Installations will quickly and efficiently install new receptacles to declutter and improve the safety of your London property regardless of age.
• Are you guilty of using more than one power cord throughout your home? Even for basic needs such as a hairdrier or DVD player then it's time to call us for a FREE inspection.
Fixed electrical systems are to be inspected and tested AT LEAST once every 5 years for rented properties, Airbnb may not state this in writing but it's highly recommended to take heed from other industries.
