What should I do if my power goes off?
On your fuse board, try to locate which circuit has tripped. If possible, unplug all items on that circuit, then plug them back in one by one to determine what is causing the trip. If this is not successful, call Woodhouse, and one of our experts will be happy to assist.

How can I tell if I need a rewire?
If you have an older property that hasn't been tested in a few years, it's worth having a periodic inspection. Warning signs that you may need a rewire include minor shocks from switches and sockets, fuses tripping, or damaged or exposed worn cable; if any of these apply to you, you should contact a qualified electrician or enquire about our electrician services.
What is an EICR and who needs it?
Having an Electrical Installation Condition Report completed at your property is a legal requirement if you are a landlord and you rent your property out. You must have an EICR completed every 5 years or after a change of occupancy to ensure where appropriate that the installation is compliant with the current version of BS7671.
If you are experiencing problems with your installation or are having tripping issues, it is a good idea to have an EICR completed as this will give you an idea of the condition of the cabling within your property.
What is PAT testing and who needs it?
PAT stands for Portable Appliance Testing, and it is used to test any electrical appliance that can be moved and connected or detached from an electrical source.
It is critical to keep any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury in good working order. As a result, if you are a company owner, landlord, equipment user, or facility manager, you should have PAT testing performed on a regular basis.
