We recommend that you get advice from a registered electrician
- In the meantime, buy a plug-in RCD adaptor to use in any socket in your home – they’re affordable (around £10) and available from your local DIY store or garden centre.
- Visit the ESC’s website for free advice about using your installation and electrical products safely.
- Identify potential dangers in your home by doing your own visual check regularly. It’s easy with our free App which can be downloaded at: www.esc.org.uk/visualchecks. The App explains how to resolve simple, non-technical problems and helps you to identify when it’s best to call in a professional.
- Ask a registered electrician to carry out an Electrical Installation Condition Report – at least every ten years
