BN Electrical Services are your local electrician in Newbury and the West Berkshire region. Here are the services we offer to local customers:
Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICRs)
An electrical installation condition report is a requirement as every electrical installation deteriorates with time. You should have a periodic inspection every three to five years, and your electrical installation will be formally declared ‘satisfactory’ or ‘unsatisfactory’. As a local electrician in Newbury, BN Electrical Services works with landlords throughout the region, and can electrically test both commercial and domestic properties.
An EICR can help you find out the following:
- Any potential shock hazards or fire risks
- Any electrical circuits or equipment that are overloaded
- Defective electrical work
- Lack of earthing or bonding
We can replace domestic and commercial electrical accessories including plug sockets, light switches, light fittings and other electrical equipment installations. This does not cover the alteration of circuit arrangements. Once the work is completed, you will be given a Minor Electrical Installation Works Certificate to prove that the relevant electrical safety tests were carried out on all new accessories.
Be advised that if the electrician discovers an unsafe situation, it will be suggested that you have other work done to make things safe before the accessory replacement is undertaken. Get your electrical accessories refreshed and upgraded by a professional local electrician in Newbury.
Installing smoke alarms
We’ve been installing and servicing smoke alarms throughout Newbury and the surrounding areas for many years. We can install various mains-powered smoke alarms, keeping your property safe and giving you peace of mind. We also offer a regular maintenance service to ensure everything remains in good working order, and we can advise you on cost-effective solutions that will work best for the configuration of your property.
Are you concerned the fuseboard in your property is no longer fully compliant with UK electrical regulations? It could be time to make the change to a more up-to-date consumer unit. A consumer unit makes up a horizontal row of Mini Circuit Breakers, which includes a switch that will deactivate if there is a power surge.
There are different types of consumer units, but it is an upgrade that could be beneficial for your property. BN Electrical Services are a local electrician in Newbury who can offer replacement fuseboard services at competitive prices.

Replacement light fittings and Downlighters
We can replace existing light fittings with new fixtures, including downlighters. Updating light fittings is helpful in homes and commercial properties in many ways, not least of which being improving your energy efficiency with modern fittings that use energy-efficient LED lighting options. All our new light fittings are installed by qualified and experienced electricians, and are fully compliant with all regulations for safe and efficient results every time.
Security and external lighting
We have installed outdoor and security lighting all around the West Berkshire area for many years. In that time, we have seen a large increase in the number of people having outdoor lighting installed. This is because there is a growing trend towards appreciating the improvements to the look and feel of a home’s exterior, and also an increasing awareness of the value of security lighting to prevent crime.
We can install solar lighting for the green conscious, powerful halogen lighting or low-voltage LED light for the perfect compromise between the two. Outdoor lighting can be a great feature for many homes and commercial properties, and the best way to make use of them is to have them installed by professional electricians
