About Me

My name is Ian Speakman. I have been working in the electrical industry for over 30 years. I started my career as an electrical apprentice at British Aerospace in 1987. I later gained a degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Manchester Polytechnic. I was a maintenance engineer for over 20 years before starting my own domestic electrical business in 2008. I have been registered as a Domestic Installer with the NICEIC since 2008.


These are some of the domestic electrical services I offer:

Electrical Fault Diagnosis
Do your fuses blow or circuit breakers trip? Sockets not working? Flickering lights? With over 30 years of experience in maintenance and repair, I am confident I can efficiently find and repair even the most obscure faults, saving you time and money.
Electrical Appliance Repairs
I offer an appliance repair service. Oven repairs, cooker repairs, electric fire and storage heater repairs, boilers, urns,  water heater and a wide range of portable equipment, too.
Electrical PAT Testing
I offer a small-scale PAT testing service for small businesses, hotels and landlords. For this I have a minimum charge. If you have a few items, such as power tools or band equipment, you are welcome to drop off it at our premises and I can test it while you wait. This is more economical as there is no call-out fee.
Electrical Installations
I install anything from a new socket to a complete rewire, including: appliances, electric showers (including plumbing), lighting, consumer units, security lights, downlights, cooker hoods, smoke alarms, central heating controls.
