    If we just want to replace our existing cooker hood with a new one do we need an electrician?

    Since a recent power cut, my not in use house alarm has gone crazy. The alarm kept making chirping noises and then went off making such a noise that I took the plug out at the circuit break in my fuse. But it’s still making noises from the back up battery I think. What do I need to do to make it stop?

    Hi, I have a kitchen cooker hood and motor that needs replacing as the motor is about 10+ years old now and has stopped working. My question is do I need an electrician to do the job? It would be a straight swap, I'd need the person to find a new cooker hood and motor. The issue is there are tiles all around the original cooker hood. When our existing one was installed we had tiles placed around it and now my family don't want to remove the tiles but need a cooker hood that can fit within them. Would this be possible to do?

    I’d like to put a small light and socket in my little potting shed and an outside light with a motion sensor. Someone has suggested I’ll need a new consumer unit for these 3 things, even though the socket will hardly ever be used. Is this necessary do you think?

    I'm converting a warehouse that was an exhibition space into a trampoline park. Need to: - Replace twenty flouro tube lights with LED equivalents - Move six plug sockets 6 inches to the left (currently surface mounted with cabling encased in trunking) Contractor says we need to rip out wiring and start from scratch because: - Current wire is a grey twin and earth that causes excess smoke and is only suitable for domestic. - Current wiring is attached to redundant old pipework and ceiling trusses (4mtrs off the ground) by cable ties. - Some back office wiring is surface mounted and not running inside trunking. He says “even if our electricians test everything and it is ok, if it doesn't meet regs Building Control may not accept it due to the extent of install you are carrying out they may request everything is replaced" Sound like it is necessary or could the existing wiring remain? Site was certified safe with Napit Electrical Installation report in 2018 Ta
