Electric cookers draw huge amounts of current because of the heat they need to produce, so a larger fuse is required as is thicker cable and a double pole isolating switch. Usually when a switch is installed it interrupts the live wire of the circuit. The switch breaks the connection in the live wire. With a double pole switch the connection to the live and the neutral is broken so there is no fear of any residual current causing a shock when the switch is off.

Why do we need Electrical Testing?
Quite simply it is a statutory obligation in most cases. If your premises are open to the public, i.e. pubs,schools,cinemas,clubs,churches,dentists,doctors surgeries etc then you most likely need to be inspected yearly (Frequency of tests). If you are a private dwelling then you should be tested at least every 10 years. Electrical testing is often overlooked by ignorance, many companies now delegate the responsibility to either their own resources manager or a dedicated company. TC Electrical Services keeps a data base of all tests, when they were performed and the results.
This is a requirement for all types of installation whether it be Domestic, Commercial or Industrial. Home-owners wishing to sell their dwelling can use the same service to make the test results available to potential purchasers.

Electric underfloor heating is an invisible heat source without the clutter from visable pipes or radiators. It requires absolutely no maintenance and is silent running. It also prevents movement and circulation of dust so it is very suitable for people with dust related allergies. The heating is evenly spread across the floor which emits a pleasant heat at both feet and head levels. On top of that infra red heating is the most natural form of heat distribution.
