We don’t often think about the condition of our heating system until it becomes a big problem. However your radiators need looking after too. By bleeding your radiators, it will keep your heating system functional and well cared for, as it will keep your property heated efficiently.


Bleeding a radiator is needed when air gets stuck, which means it won’t work as efficiently as it should. Bleeding lets the air release which should sort the problem. If this isn’t done, the air can stop heat from evenly spreading within the radiator, so your home will get cold spots. Due to the heating working incorrectly, you’ll find you’re paying out for energy bills. A couple of signs to keep an eye out for, are cold spots in the radiator, strange gurgling noises and insufficient room temperatures due to the system struggling to spread it evenly.

They will be able to do it efficiently and carefully without you having to worry about whether or not you’re doing it correctly (due to the hissing noises and remembering to make sure the heating is off first!). They will also be able to check the pressure afterwards and get your heating system back up to the full potential, for more advice and a cheap Plumber in EC2, call us today.

The Benefits of Dimmer Switches

A dimmer switch is used for raising or lowering how bright a bulb is. They are used commercially and also domestically, as they are energy efficient. This is due to the bulbs giving out less watts. If you have a dimmer in more than one room you will find your energy bills being lower. They can also be linked to smart functions, meaning they can control the mood and atmosphere easily. This is particularly handy if you are wanting the lights lower so you can watch a movie, as you can then turn them up again straight after. The lights can be set to change automatically with set timers, which is less time consuming.
As the lights aren’t using their full strength, they won’t burn out as easily, therefore lasting longer. There are different types of dimmer switches, such as integrated switches that can be controlled both wirelessly and manually. These are quite common with modern smart systems. Another favoured switch is a touch screen dimmer, which are usually placed on a wall and simple to use.
Slide dimmers are easy to use, due to simply moving them to and fro and up and down. Rotary dimmers can be used manually to lower the lights, as well as being the on and off switch. If you’re not sure what sort of dimmer light to install, it is best to talk to an expert, as they will know what to suggest to help lower energy bills and keep your home modern and safe.

Benefits Of PAT Testing

When it comes to keeping your business safe, PAT testing is the way to go. For a business to be able to use electrical tools and equipment, you need to ensure they are safe first, as an untested item is a potential fire risk. Health and safety comes first after all, and keeping your colleagues and yourself safe, therefore potentially saving lives, is the main reason you should get things PAT tested. Electrical problems are one of the common reasons a domestic fire can start in the first place, usually from damaged wires and appliances.
Regular PAT tests mean that within your business, you will be abiding by the UK rules and regulations, and will benefit both you and your insurance company. The law says that any employers must check that any electrical tools or equipment are maintained properly, and that colleagues know how to use them.
Fires from faulty equipment are common in the UK, which is why PAT tests are integral in the work place. An expert will know what to check and will know how to advise you, keeping you and your workplace safe from a potentially life threatening danger.
