John, Cronton, Widnes: I had a problem with some of my electrical appliances in my home, I rang up Red Elec and they sent some electricians around very quickly, they found that the problem was some old wiring that had started to fail, they re-wired my faulty circuiting to brand new wires and the problem has gone. Red Elec were quick to get out to me, friendly and finished the work fast. I couldn’t be happier with the service that they have provided me and I will recommend you to any of my friends and family who are having electrical issues in their home.
Mrs Graham, Cronton, Widnes: We had a new extension fitted that we were planning on using as a kitchen and then turning the kitchen into a dining area. Although the contractors that we hired to build our extension had no idea how to work electrics (they only told us after the job was finished and we were furious!), fancy building a room for a modern house and not coupling it up to the mains!! I gave Red Elec a call after finding their number on their website (through Google) and within the same day they sent two people round to connect the extension. They left not too long after they arrived leaving no mess and leaving us with a fully working room! We can finally turn it into the kitchen that we want and it’s all thanks to these guys

Electricians Widnes – Reviews from our Customers
If you’re searching for recommended Electricians Widnes, you’re in the right place. At Red Elec we believe our customers are the best people to tell you how good we are. So we decided to ask our customers in Widnes to review our electrical skills… Here’s what they said:
Mr Smith, Widnes:
I recently moved into a new flat and I realised only after a day of being in there (was too busy moving in to realise) that one of the rooms in the flat had sockets but they didn’t work, as if they weren’t connected to the mains at all and were only there for show! I was given Red Elec’s number from one of my new neighbours who said they work wonders when it comes to working with things involving electrics. I gave them a call at around 10:00am and somebody was round well before half eleven that same day and by 2:00pm they had left and I had a room in my flat that wasn’t left in the dark ages, thanks Red Elec! 10/10 would recommend!

Mr Bennett, Widnes:
There’s been many break-ins around our area, always happens at this time of the year. But to be on the safe side of things, we wanted to improve our homes security by adding outdoor lights around the perimeter of our home, just so we’re made aware whenever somebodies close, by the lights automatically turning on. I was speaking to my friend over a pint and he said that Red Elec did exactly what we’re wanting to his home, as I have already seen what they’ve done to his house, I decided to jump to the offer when he said he’ll give me their number. After a quick phone call they sent somebody round and within an hour the lights were all set up and working correctly. I would recommend these to anybody who is in-need of outdoor security lighting.
Earn and Save Money with Solar Panels
Here at Red Elec we are not just your local electricians, we can also advise and help you to save money with your electricity bill, in this article we will be talking about how you can save and even earn money, just by having solar panels fitted onto your roof.
HOW WILL I EARN MONEY?
You’ll be paid a minimum sum for all electricity generated by your system, known as the Feed-In Tariff (Fit). You’ll get approx 14.9p per kilowatt hour (kwh) for each unit of electricity you create.
You get 4.6p for every unit sold back to the Grid. Together, these payments boost your savings because your on-site electricity reduces the bill from your normal supplier.
WHAT SAVINGS ARE THERE?
- About £800 a year, typically. For example, a family of four in a three-bed property who buy a 4kWh solar panel system will earn about £560 a year from their supplier just for generating the solar electricity.
- On top of this, they will then make £90 from selling power back to the National Grid via their energy supplier.
- And finally, they’ll typically knock £150 from their electricity bill by using their own power instead of buying it all from their supplier.
- This works out as approximately £800 of savings in total.
At these rates, you need to be prepared to stay in your current property for a minimum of eight years to make it worthwhile. The key to making big savings is to use as many of your appliances as possible in the daytime when you are generating your own power.
Your installer should show you how everything works and you must register the Feed-In Tariff.
A new meter then shows you how much energy is being generated — and how much you are exporting. If you would like to know more on how you can save money on your next electricity bill, or you would just like to know about the other services that we currently offer, then please don’t hesitate to get into contact with us and a member of our friendly team will be in touch with you shortly.
Here at Red Elec, we may be your local electricians, but that doesn’t mean we don’t care for the community around Widnes and Halton. Energy rates are always increasing which means the prices are always getting more and more each year, but with these very simple tips you could end up saving a bomb on your next electricity bill!
Firstly to save energy in your home, make sure that if you’re not in a certain room (or it’s not being currently used at that point in your home), then make sure that all the plugs, lights, appliances etc. are switched off at the wall, another easy way to do this if the sockets are in hard to reach places would be to turn off the power for that room, via your mains box (usually under the stairs, the thing the “electric guy” comes and looks at every now and then). This alone could end up saving you around £100 on each bill (depending on how much energy you use). But that’s not it! You can purchase Solar Panels for your home which will generate electricity throughout sunlight hours and will store the energy in a generator of sort until the night-time comes, it will then use this energy to keep your home up and running. If you buy the solar panels yourself, you may not necessarily need to pay for an electricity bill every again, which means the panels will pay for themselves after a couple of years!

Our most prized services are:
- Outdoor Lighting: This is when you need some outdoor lighting around the perimeter of your property (both homes and businesses), they can be for driveways, so you can see where you are parking your vehicle at night time, or even security. Our security lights are here to make you feel a bit safer at night, they will turn themselves on when there is movement picked up by their sensors. Although it may not be an intruder, it could just be the neighbour’s cat triggering them, but at least you’ll be warned when something is in your garden. We can install these at any time during the day or night, but it is much quicker for us to install them during the day due to us being able to see perfectly.
- House Re-Wiring: If you live in an old property then this service is perfect for you. Many years ago when houses were being built, the electricals were done differently back then and are seen as unsafe these days. If you know for certainty that your house’s electrical wirings are quite old, then it may be time to re-wire your property. This service is especially good if you’ve noticed that a lot of objects in your home are breaking fuses for no reason at all, its not because the appliance is faulty, it’s because your wiring within the walls is. But don’t worry, our electricians can rip out the old wiring and install it with newer, safer wiring instead. We can also remove all old sockets and replace them with newer ones which are also a lot safer. Having your house or business property re-wired lowers the chance of an electrical fire randomly occurring.

Simon Mu, Farnworth, Widnes: I recently had Red Elec’s electricians come to my home to sort out some dodgy sockets (about 8 in my home haven’t worked since I moved in 2 months ago). The guys who came round were great! They were very friendly and knew exactly what they were doing. The electrical sockets that weren’t working before, now work as they are meant to and I don’t need extension leads running around my rooms just to have something turned on. Thanks a lot guys!
Michelle Walsh, Cronton, Widnes: I had Red Elec’s electricians come to my home to re-wire it fully. My home from what I’ve been told is around 100 years old or so. Being that old, a lot of the plug sockets and electrical wiring wasn’t safe and I was advised by family members to get it re-wired so I would get electrocuted. I found Red Elec’s number when surfing the web and decided to give them a call. The guys who came round were very friendly and knew exactly what they had to do and where they had to do it. It only took them two days to completely re-wire my home and I don’t feel like I’m going to die when plugging something in anymore (a few sockets used to spark when plugging and unplugging thing from them). Thanks so much guys!!

How to change a wall socket in the safest way possible
You don’t need to be a qualified electrician to replace a socket. You can do this sort of minor electrical work without notifying your Local Authority Building Control Department, but the work must be done in accordance with the standards in the relevant Building and Electrical Regulations and you should consider having the work checked by a competent electrician to make sure it is safe.
An Electrical socket may be broken or become damaged if it overheats and scorches. If the problem is scorching it will usually have been caused by a loose connection in the socket or by loose connections in the plug. Don’t plug it back in without dealing with the problem, or it will just happen all over again.
- Firstly you should isolate the circuit (turn the power off for that plug socket) use a socket tester to double-check that it is actually dead. Unscrew the socket faceplate from the wall, keep the screws in case the new ones don’t fit.
- Loosen the terminal screws and free the cable cores. If the insulation is heat damaged, cut back the cores and strip the ends. Run green/yellow sleeving over the earth core if you find it bare.
- Connect the (old) red or (new) brown core or cores to the live terminal of the new faceplate, the (old) black or (new) blue core or cores to the neutral terminal and the earth core or cores to the earth terminal. Tighten the terminal screws fully. Fit the new faceplate. If the new screws don’t fit the lugs of the old box, use the original screws. When power is returned to the circuit, use the socket tester to check it is wired correctly.
If you do however change your own plug sockets, make sure you get somebody around who knows what they’re doing to make sure the plug sockets are safe to use. This could be a family friend, electrician or just someone you know. Although if you have a busy schedule and you cannot do this yourself, for whatever reason. Then don’t hesitate to get into contact with us here
Here at Red Elec we offer a fantastic House Rewiring service throughout the Widnes & Halton areas. Whether you’re buying a new property or refurbishing your home, you’ll eventually need to check the age and quality of the wiring to the sockets and switches. Not doing so, could result in electrical problems and even safety issues in your home. Rewiring is undoubtedly a major undertaking, but it need not be a risk that will break the bank. When you hire a professional electrician with the right accreditation, you can be confident that the job will be done right.
In every family, the demand for power is increasing. We all use many more gadgets and appliances, and our homes draw more power from the mains than that of around 20 years ago. If the wiring in your home isn’t up to scratch, you could be at risk of unexpected power loss or even shocks when trying to use something connected to the mains. Old electrical fittings can also be dangerous, with fire being an unfortunate consequence. A complete rewire of any property is a big job, but it’s also an essential undertaking that can add value to your home. Done properly, rewiring ensures the safety of family and friends, and it will also future-proof your home.
