Any home that has not been rewired within the last 25 – 30 years will likely at least require partial rewiring. But if you’re unsure, don’t take any chances, book a free assessment with our Newton Abbot Electrician.

Here are some signs that your home may need updating:

  • A consumer unit with wooden backing, cast iron switches, a balack electricity cable or no labelling.
  • Out of date plug sockets: broken or cracked sockets and rounded entries as opposed to 3-pin varieties.
  • Breakers that trip repeatedly.
  • Old cable colours or aluminium wiring present in the home.
  • Flickering or dimming lights that need to be changed regularly.

We can also install additional circuits where required in new or existing properties.

Green energy, generated from natural resources like sunlight, wind and water is better for the environment than fossil fuels, and could help you save money on your energy bill too! The most popular way to bring sustainable energy in to the home is via the use of Solar Panels. Panels fitted to your home use light from the sun to create electricity or heat water and work best on south facing roofs which get the most sunlight.

There are also plenty of ways to reduce your energy bills before committing to a whole new energy system such as solar power.

Here are a few ways to move towards a greener future:

  • LED lighting
  • Night storage heaters
  • Smart Thermostats
  • Car charging ports
  • Dimmer Switches


If you’re updating your Kitchen or Bathroom, let our Newton Abbot Electrician help you create the perfect spaces for culinary masterpieces and relaxation.

  • Strategic placement of sockets
  • Electric Showers
  • Hardwired Appliances
  • Spotlights, Mood or Feature Lighting
  • Extractor Fans
  • Shaver-Supply Units


With Gas slowly being phased out to make way for a more sustainable future, the truth is that electrical heating at this stage, is not necessarily suitable for every building. However, it is a great solution for those of you with low energy requirements meaning you can keep your bills to a minimum, or simply looking for an alternative, sustainable way to bring warmth to your home. It helps to reduce your overall carbon impact, which is critical for our green future.

Here are some benefits:

  • Lower upfront costs
  • No need for Gas on site
  • No plumbing pipework - meaning no risk of leaks
  • No annual Boiler servicing
  • Very low maintenance


New Regulation

As of 1st June 2020, private landlords are required to have a qualified electrician assess the safety of the electrical installation in their rental properties and as such, we have seen a rapid increase in requests for these reports.

From 1st July 2020, electrical installations must be inspected and tested prior to the start of a new tenancy, whilst checks must be carried out on any existing tenancies by 1st April 2021.

A copy of the most recent electrical safety condition report (EICR) must be supplied to both new and existing tenants and the landlord then must carry out an EICR every 5 years.

  • Avatar Rachel Phillips ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    I came home from work late one evening and realised I had no hot water due to a faulty time clock. Flexwire came out early the following morning and sorted it. I was extremely happy with the service provided and couldn’t recommend the … More company enough. They are always very quick to respond and very friendly. Great customer service!

    Fantastic service. I've ended up with much better and safer lights than before. The electrician was polite, helpful and very tidy 🙂
  • Avatar Alexandra Martin ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Dave and Georgie at FlexWire were incredibly helpful from the first minute. We ordered a Hot Tub and required a 30 Amp outside plug. The work was carried out both within the house and the garden. I went to work whilst the work was being … More done as my husband was home. When i got back i had to ask if he had even been because there was no tell tale evidence a work man had been in the house. No boot marks or dust. I knew the carpet needed to be pulled up to run a cable underneath and you would never have known that had been done. The work itself was done quickly as well. Can't recommend highly enough.
