Luxury – Virtue or Sin?

High-Quality, Luxury Electricals

At Lux, Cambridge-based providers of high quality electrical installations and services, we fully understand that the line between necessity and luxury is one whose position varies between geographical locations and stages of development. There are many people in many places who do not have the financial or infrastructural means to accommodate for electricity supply and may still continue their lives healthily and contently without it, whereas in the place and level of modernity that we live in, normal life is unthinkable without electricity, whether or not it is really is a luxury.

Luxury Electricity

Should luxury or indulgence be something that we strive for and dive into, or should our values remind us to keep our distance from it? Does longing for luxury make us progress, or degenerate? Whether we perceive our gift of full access and use of electricity to be a luxury or a necessity, one thing that’s for certain is that electricity has done virtuous things for humanity. It has revolutionised work, education, communication, transport, the production of the food, clothes and other essentials, and electricity has brought so much more light and warmth into our lives. As long as we use electricity or any other possible form of luxury to genuinely better our lives and use it with responsibility, appreciation and kindness, there is nothing greater we can expect of ourselves to do with the gifts we are given.

Our Services

By example of our work and the passion that we put into it, Lux Electrical reminds you that that electricity is a wonderful thing as we install it with care and happiness. At Lux Electrical, we want to encourage the type of energy and spark that makes you feel positive and grateful, not idle or guilty, for virtue or sin lies not in objects and situations, but in what’s inside of us.

Modern Electricity

In our modern way of life that’s unavoidably artificial, in order to find balance, it may be necessary to maximise the areas of our lives that are de-stressing and soothing, since so much is demanded of us in other aspects that require us to function in almost machine like motions and efficiencies, rather than as soulful organic beings. Sometimes, this means that whatever domestic bliss’s you can entrust in at the end of the day including those that electricity enables to be brought to you, may be among the only things that can compensate for the hectic busy buzz and pressures you are faced with in the outside world, and the only way to finally bring yourself and your life back into balance.

Do you live or work in Cambridge?

With the number of electrical devices nowadays, your safety at home and work is more important than ever. Whether you run an IT firm with multiple PCs or have a home full of gadgets, it’s important to have regular maintenance every year.

Although wiring has improved significantly since the 1950s, there are many buildings which still have an antiquated system. It’s also important that you don’t overload any electrical system, no matter how modern.

Only recently an employee was killed by 86 volts when changing a welding electrode, according to Health and Safety Executive. Another employee received an electric shock that broke both their shoulders.

Understanding Electrical Testing

Do you need electrical testing?

With more gadgets than ever, electrical testing is increasingly important. You should only ever do your own electrical work is you’re qualified to do so; otherwise, it could be extremely dangerous. Anybody who undertakes electrical work must satisfy the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.

If somebody comes in contact with a voltage over 50 volts, they can receive a wide range of injuries, including problems with their heart. Thermal burns are also a risk if the flow of electricals is high, or if there are hot surfaces.  Some voltages also have a spark which is powerful enough to start a fire.

Lux Electrical can ensure your home or office is safe

All our electrical testing is carried out to the highest standards, and we cover all aspects of testing, installation and lighting designs. We can also provide full and part rewires, alarm systems, new builds, extension, garden lighting and loft heating systems.

The Importance Of Electrical Rewiring

I always recommend rewiring vintage lighting. It’s not a bargain if your house burns down.’

(Lara Spencer).

Having an old lighting system can lead to damaged equipment, dangerous accidents and ignition of flammable atmospheres. It also means you end up calling out the electrician every other day. Sometimes having a complete re-wire is the best solution.

In America, the number of injuries caused by electricals is estimated to be around 50,000; that means it costs them around $1 billion a year. Here in the UK there are also plenty of fires and accidents caused by faulty electrics. When choosing an electrician for rewiring your home, it’s important they carry out work to the highest standards.

How Long Does A Full Rewire Take?

A full rewire is an extremely big job. After all, it involves replacing the electrical wiring in every room of your home. That’s why it’s important to choose a company that will be supportive during the process. You might find that some of the decorations will need to be removed, and existing sockets replaced with double ones.

The time taken for a full rewire is usually less than two weeks.

If drilling isn’t possible, then new wiring will need to be fitted in plastic trunking. A full rewire also involves testing electrical systems, including security lights, alarm systems, doorbells and electric showers.

In Need Of A Rewire?

This university town is full of beautiful older properties, but they haven’t always been properly renovated.

If your property hasn’t been re-wired in the past 25 years, the chances are it needs upgrading it to bring it up to current standards. If you have an old-fashioned style electrical box, it could well end up being dangerous and potentially cause electrical shocks and fires.

Old fashioned fuse boxes usually have large white ceramic style fuses. In extremely rare cases, the electrical system won’t have been updated for decades, and you’ll find old dolly switches and round pin sockets. In such cases, a full re-wire is then absolutely necessary.

You can also estimate the age of wiring by the colour of the cabling, as modern PVC-u insulated cables are usually white or grey. Older PVC-u cables will also need replacing eventually if it doesn’t have twinned earth cabling.I

For full rewires in Cambridge, simply call Lux Electrical this summer. We can provide not only re-wiring but electricals for new builds, extensions, loft heating, internet systems, alarm systems and garden lighting.
