    Asked by Pete on 31st Mar 2020

    I want to replace my outside light from an old style light to something a bit brighter. I was looking at a led sealed unit but don't want to have to change it again in the near future. Are these any good? Where can I get a good one or alternatively the best spot light outside light with replaceable bulbs?

    My RCD keeps tripping and I can't find anything obvious that's doing it. Most of the appliances have been unplugged and I still can't figure it out. The entire system trips and not just a single fuse. Does anyone have any advice on how to find the fault?

    I have an old house that needs rewiring and a new fuse box. It’s a 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom victorian house. I just need to know roughly how long I can expect the job to take to complete? I'd also appreciate a cost estimate just so I know I'm not getting ripped off. Thanks.

    I bought a replacement oven recently after mine gave in. My last one was built into a special cooker point which has been disconnected and the new one came with just a regular plug. Should this be plugged into a separate socket like my old one of can i just use a regular 3 pin plug socket? I'm just wondering if there's any regulations i should be worried about. Thanks in advance.

    I've just had a garden shed built in my garden to be used as a workshop. I need to run an electricity cable from my back kitchen over to the shed about 15 metres away. I have a power socket outside but I don’t just want to run an extension and i'm not sure if i'll need some sort of safety measure in place? Will I also need to get certification of its safety?

    I have a flush dome ceiling light in the bathroom. I am unable to open the glass dome to change the bulbs. I have tried Google, YouTube and everything. I tried using vinyl gloves and sticky tapes to try and twist it counter clockwise but it won't open. It's stuck! Can anyone give me some advice. Help!

    I would like to have a double socket installed in a small room/cupboard (7ft x 7ft approx) that has my electricity meter, fuse box etc on 1 of the walls. Is this a reasonably straightforward job and approximately how much would it cost? Any advice and or ballpark figures would be greatly appreciated!
