Church Electrical Services
Recent Electrical Work In Churches
This is just a small selection of some recent projects that we have completed in Scottish Churches.
Please visit our projects page to see more examples of our work.
INTERIOR & EXTERIOR LIGHTING
We’re arguably Scotland’s leading electrical contractors when it comes to church lighting.
Lighting design & installation is one of our specialities, and we can also help churches upgrade to LED lighting (which significantly reduces bills). Our church lighting team can help with both interior & exterior lighting.
Emergency lighting, lighting repairs & lighting maintenance are some of the other areas we can help with. Whether you’re looking for a new system or simply fixing a light, please contact us.
WE CARRY OUT ALL TYPES OF TESTING
Church Electrical Testing
Churches need to have their electrical wiring tested on a regular basis, to ensure they comply with Electricity at Work 1989 regulations.
The name for this test is the Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), which was formerly known as the Periodic Inspection Report. In addition to this, appliances in churches need to undergo Portable Appliance Testing. Without these two tests, there is a greater risk to the congregation & staff, not to mention electrical fires.
Churches usually need to have emergency lighting tests, to ensure they comply with BS 5266-1 2016. This is something else we can help with.
To discuss whether or not your church needs to be tested, please get in touch.
REDUCING HEATING COSTS
Energy Efficient Heating For Churches
With the rise in electricity costs, it is now more important than ever for churches to be investing in energy-efficient heating solutions. With churches using different spaces for various purposes, there is no longer the need to simply have the heating on or off. Smart solutions can also help quickly heat areas or rooms as & when required.
For example, de-stratification fans can reduce heating bills by 30-40% by recycling warm air (rather than just sitting at the ceiling & cooling down). Similarly, ceramic & infrared heaters provide virtually instant heat to people without the need to heat the surrounding air.
With churches now opening the doors for the community to enjoy a warm space, simple energy-efficient installations will save huge amounts of money over the winter months.
ELECTRICAL REPAIRS & FAULT-FINDING
Church Electrical Repairs & Maintenance
When something electrical stops working, we’ll be able to help. A lot of churches have very old electrical systems, and we’re able to use our fault-finding processes to see exactly where the problem lies. It goes without saying, that we’re then able to fix the problem.
WE HAVE LOTS OF EXPERIENCE IN REWIRING CHURCHES
We are experts in rewiring churches which. Due to the age, layout & dated electrical systems a church really needs to be rewired by a company that understands how to do this properly.
Rewiring a church is totally different to rewiring a house or normal commercial premises. Please contact us, if you think rewiring may need to take place & we’ll let you know whether or not it’s necessary.
