Is it time you got additional sockets? The increase in charging devices, kitchen appliances and media entertainment systems inevitably means that many homes have insufficient sockets.

Installation of Kitchen Appliances
We install all types of kitchen appliance. With the increase in the power ratings of many double ovens and hobs it may well be a requirement to install a dedicated high current circuit. If you are unsure of the requirements please give us a call BEFORE you make a purchase as the cost of a new circuit may well be more than the appliance!
Hot Tip ! Remember that if you wish to use a standard 13A plug connection your oven or hob appliance must be below 3kW!!
