Hi I'm a totally clueless about this subject matter...really looking for some guidance here...
I live in a flat and we have a panel of switches controlling the electric supply to lights, the oven & kitchen, the economy 7 heating etc etc. About once a fortnight one of the switches trips. Pushing it back up turns everything back on again but the fact that it trips so regularly makes me worry that there is some underlying problem. So:
1. Should I be concerned? (Quite often the tripping will coincide with one of the light bulbs going). Might any fault be potentially dangerous? Is it possible that something is draining more electricity than it should?
2. Is this something I can look into myself?
3. I notice that in a similar thread someone recommended getting a 'part p registered electrcian'. Can someone confirm that this is definately the recommended path to follow here?
4. How much should it cost me to get the necessary diagnosis+fix carried out (by a part p registered electrician)? (I live in a 2-bed flat in Harrow).
Really hope someone can shed some light here.
Many thanks in advance,
