Get British Gas Home Electrical Care
Alongside the market-leading British Gas HomeCare central heating products, British Gas has now extended the peace of mind that they provide to householders with their new Home Electrical Care package. Electrical repairs can be particularly expensive – particularly emergency repairs – and this valuable cover will undoubtedly help to protect consumers from such eventualities.
The British Gas Home Electrical Care scheme provides you with both peace of mind in emergencies and regular inspections of your domestic electrics in order to help avoid future problems and emergencies and costs just £4.85 per month!
Although gas repairs and maintenance have been strictly controlled for quite some time, comparatively recent changes to electrical regulations mean that it is now in many cases prohibited for electrical repairs and maintenance work to be carried out by anyone other than a qualified electrical engineer.
The consequences of carrying out work that does not conform to regulations are wide-ranging – from improperly documented or registered work making it difficult for you to sell your home – to fire, serious injury or even death.
The British Gas Home Electrical Care scheme provides the following benefits:
Cover for your existing fixed electrical wiring system and fuse box inside your home and outbuildings.
Cover for your light switches, light fittings, mains sockets and transformers inside your home and outbuildings.
Electrical maintenance inspection every 2 years.
All work conforms to Part P of the Building Regulations for England and Wales.
Priority response in the case of a total loss of power or lighting.
24/7 customer helpline.
All electrical engineers registered unde the Building Regulations ‘Competent Persons Scheme’.
Standard parts and labour included.
For a low monthly fee of just £4.85 it is now possible to cover your electrics against the kind of problems and domestic emergencies that can leave you paying significant call-out, parts and labour charges to electricians. A full year of cover would be almost certain to cost less than a single callout for a simple problem!
