Electrical installations and repairs Kenya

Solutions Unlimited Group is a market leader in Industrial and domestic electrical installations in Kenya. Electrical installations can look mysterious. There are some basic requirements for electrical installation, and some things people need to know about them. Quality of workmanship, standards of performance, and possible hazards are some of the more important issues in electrical installation, and it isworth familiarizing yourself with the basic requirements.

Electrical installations basics

New technology requires a very wide range of new electrical installations. These are very different from the old systems, particularly in communications, media systems and IT areas.

All electrical installations are regulated by bodies such as Energy regulatory comission and the National Construction Authority in Kenya. Installation of electrical fittings must:

  • Comply with Kenyas regulatory Standards
  • Comply with safety best practice requirements
  • Have certified safety compliant components under Kenya Bureau of Standands (KEBS)
  • Be conducted by appropriately licensed contractors

These are the fundamental quality checks and safeguards on all electrical installations in Kenya. Our technical team will advice you on how to make sure you have a good system for dealing with electrical faults and related issues.

Things to look out for:

  • Smells of ozone or burnt plastic: Wiring issues.
  • Scorch marks: The electrical board may have taken damage and be unsafe, even if there wasn’t a fire.
  • Any overheating appliance: Either the appliance is unsafe or there’s a power issue.
  • Odd noises or behavior in machinery: Electrical installations can be damaged by operating machinery which can create hazards by damaging wiring. The system should be taken offline instantly and checked ASAP.
  • Water around electrical fittings: Very serious problem, requiring immediate service. Water can do tremendous damage very quickly near live power sources. Water damaged areas around electrical fittings should be repaired, because they’re no longer water resistant.
  • Anything flickering: It’s normally the appliance, but if not it’s the power.

Testing of electrical systems is conducted during the maintenance program, and is efficient in as far as safety checking and operational status are involved. Properly conducted maintenance will find and fix faults, but it’s not an audit process.

An audit is a further stage of quality control, and can be used as a planning tool for future installation needs. You’ll also find that these checks provide good information for business budgeting and forward costing of new electrical wiring installations and related plant and equipment requirements.
