Replacing Electrical Outlet Sockets

For a variety of reasons, plug socket outlets and switches in your home might get damaged or broken. Sockets, which are usually found low on the walls, might wear out over time if they are used frequently. A cracked or damaged socket, on the other hand, is a hazard and should be changed as soon as possible to safeguard the safety of you and your family.

The socket outlet may become unusable for a variety of reasons, including obstructions within the socket or plug pins sitting loosely within your plug fitting. The interior of the socket may be damaged in some cases, necessitating replacement. If you detect a burning odour or observe black stains around your sockets, contact an electrician right away. Here at Hargreaves, we can have a qualified professional with you fast!


Repairing existing electrical sockets

Sockets more often than not have to be replaced rather than repaired. Internal electrical faults within the socket housing can generally not be fixed. This is because the internal components of a plug socket do not come with replacement parts, necessitating the purchase of a new socket.

However, sockets can be repaired in some cases, such as when the socket has grown loose or is too tight for your plugs to fit in. If there is a blockage in your socket, it may be possible to remove the blockage. An experienced electrician will know instantly if a wall socket can be repaired or must be replaced.

When plug sockets stop working, the problem is usually with the wire behind the socket, which may have just become dislodged or may be a symptom of a larger problem. Our skilled Liverpool electricians are trained to recognise socket faults and rapidly resolve them, ensuring that we provide you with the most cost-effective and efficient solution possible.

In your property, you're going to be installing new sockets.

Adding additional connections to your home or flat can make it safer as well as more functional. Modern houses are more technologically advanced than ever before, thanks to the proliferation of technologies such as televisions, gaming consoles, laptop computers, digital TV boxes, and other electronic devices. Using extension plugs to provide power to such gadgets is risky since it can overload your system and is also ugly because it results in a tangle of wires behind or next to your TV console.

Installing additional socket outlets will provide your home with the functionality you desire, and they may be pushed right into a wall if necessary, leaving a tidy appearance. You can even eliminate the need for additional plugs by installing sockets with USB ports, which eliminate the need to plug in chargers for phones, kindles, and other devices.

It's possible that you'll need to add more plugs to your kitchen. Because many older homes were built when we used fewer electrical appliances than we do now, you may find yourself frequently unplugging items like your toaster or kettle to make room for electric mixing bowls or even your microwave.

Installing new electric plugs in your home is simple and uncomplicated, and our courteous, skilled electricians will work with you to ensure that the project is completed with the least amount of trouble and disturbance. Call Venture Today to see how we can help.

How much does it cost to install a new electric socket?

The cost of installing a new plug socket in your home or apartment is determined by various criteria, including the number of sockets to be replaced, the socket's new position, and the type of socket you require. This is because the work's intricacy may be determined by some of these factors. At Venture Electrical, we are always upfront about our prices, and we guarantee that we will always provide you with the most cost-effective choice for moving or adding a new socket to your home.

Replacing your home's light switches

New light switches may be required in your home if you are installing new lighting, such as a new fixture or switching to spotlights, or if you want to update the aesthetic of your home with more contemporary light switches.

Dimmer switches, which allow you to control the level of light to a fitting, or more complex lighting switches, which allow you to control different areas of rooms such as kitchens where you may be looking to add task lighting, downlights, and ambient lighting, can transform the lighting of your home, adding ambience.


Repairing Light Switches

Have you gone to turn on your lights but nothing happens? When your lights won't turn on, the problem is usually with your electrical source or wiring. When all other possibilities have been exhausted, the fault may be within (or behind) your light switch itself.

Wiring behind the fascia of your socket can become loose, causing the socket to stop working properly. We can help you detect problems with your light switches and repair them quickly, safely, and efficiently.

Smart lighting is becoming increasingly popular among homeowners. Smart lighting comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, and it can be controlled with a tablet, phone, or even a voice-activated device like an Amazon Alexa or Google Home.

While many smart light switches can be installed by yourself, it is often a preferable idea to have a competent electrician install one for you for your peace of mind and safety. Because not all smart switches are compatible with older circuit types, the job may be more difficult in some situations. In these cases, a dimmer switch might be a good alternative, allowing you to adjust the illumination of a room and create ambience.

If you have an older circuit type and want to employ more home automation, you should think about rewiring some areas of your home.

Garages are increasingly being used for other purposes than parking your automobile. In fact, many of us utilise our garage or shed to practice hobbies or do work in an area that is separate from our homes.

In these cases, you may want to install additional connections to your garage, shed, or summer house so that you can use items like computers, tools, and other devices with ease.

Whatever your needs are, Venture Electrical will work with you to ensure that the area has a fully functional power supply so that you can enjoy your extra space.


Installing a charging station for electric vehicles in your house

Many car owners are now opting for fully electric or hybrid vehicles.

While cars can be charged using a conventional plug, most electric car owners will benefit from the installation of a specialised electric charging point, which allows for considerably faster charging and is potentially more energy efficient.
