Electrical Re-Wiring

Get free advice, and a competitively priced quote for a full or partial rewire of domestic or commercial premises, from electrical engineers you know you can trust.

Electrical installations in properties over 30 years old are likely to need rewiring, some of the most common reasons include:

  • Too few sockets – using extension leads and multi-plug adaptors to meet all of today’s electrical appliance needs risks overloading the circuit, designed for just a handful of electrical appliances.
  • Loose socket joints – this wear and tear may lead to overheating and cause a fire.
  • Rewireable fuses – out-dated fuse boards do not meet the current safety standards.
  • Perished cable – rubber cable is likely to have been used in properties of this age, in which case, it would almost certainly have perished during this timeframe.

Rewiring Costs

We offer a FREE visual inspection, and give advice on the best course of action to take to ensure your home or business is safe.

Sometimes a total rewire may not be necessary – our experienced electricians can advise if there is a cheaper alternative without compromising on safety!

Electric Underfloor Heating Systems

Electric underfloor heating provides warmth throughout the entire room, giving a whole new meaning to heating and comfort. The increasing popularity of electric underfloor heating systems is due to their numerous benefits as a heat source:

  • Suitable for every type of project: new build, refurbishment or renovation
  • Compatibility with different floor types: including stone, tile, wood, carpet, vinyl, Karndean and Amtico
  • Energy efficiency: requires less energy to run while producing even, comfortable, and radiant heat

Choose the best-suited system for your project, do you want electric underfloor heating to be the primary heating source or just provide a comfortable warm feeling to those cold tiles. What ever type of system you are after we are here to offer help and advice to point you in the right direction with your decision.

We offer the complete service from design right up to floor covering and finishing.

Extra Sockets

Plug sockets, TV sockets, Aerial sockets, USB sockets. We seem to be needing more and more power outlets in our homes and businesses as we rely more and more on technology for everyday living and in our places of work. This is fine as long as the sockets are not overloaded with extension leads and multiway plugs.

It is much better and safer to have more sockets installed and especially those that can complete multiple tasks for you. Double sockets which can support two mains plugs for a lamp and telephone which also have USB outlets for charging a mobile phone and an IPad are great for making the most of your electrical supply without having rows of sockets, cables and leads to contend with. At A Pearson Electrical we can install additional sockets, upgrade those you already have and check the wirings and safety of your sockets at the same time. So get in touch today to find out more.


The correct lighting can make a room cosy, bright, warm or cool, it’s up to you but choosing the type of lighting source is key to achieving the mood you want. Most lighting comes from some kind of electrical source whether it’s from a plug socket or switch on the wall. So when it comes to changing or updating the lighting in your home it’s time to call an electrician to ensure that the switches you have are in good working order, ceiling fittings are installed properly or wall lighting is checked.

The range of lighting to choose from is huge. There are recessed lights for kitchens, wall lights, floor or track lighting, chandeliers, adjustable height lamps and touch sensitive lighting to name a few. Then there are dimmer switches, double switches, chrome and brass finishes, the list is endless. Whatever your purchase, the next call needs to be to a reliable electrician who can install your lighting safely.

We are more than happy to have a chat and let you know the most cost effective way of changing or upgrading your lighting installation.
