Archer Electrical will still be operating as normally as possible during this time of uncertainty. We will still be able to carry out electrical work, big or small jobs, for our usual rates. If you need a call out we will still endeavour to attend. If you have an electrical emergency we will make every effort to get to you. We will not be raising our rates for call outs. If all you need is advise on how to restore power if your RCD has tripped out, I will be happy to give it over the phone free of charge, we are also available on WhatsApp if a video call is better.

We will take extra precautions where necessary (hand washing before entering a home etc..) and if you are in isolation we can adapt to your requirements.



We started trading as Archer Electrical in 2003 in response to the need, for what seemed to me to be a lack, of quality electricians specialising in domestic work. My aim is to provide the very best quality of service to customers requiring an expert tradesman who they can trust with their own home.

I first joined Checkatrade in May 2006 and was one the first electricians to join in Southampton.
I remained a member until 2010 when I joined a larger firm of electricians. I relocated to Basingstoke in 2013 and re-launched Archer Electrical with help from CheckaTrade, the best site for trustworthy trades.

Full or Partial Home Rewires are our SPECIALTY.

REPLACE YOUR OLD STYLE FUSE BOX for a modern Consumer Unit with RCBO protection to comply with the latest safety regulations.
6 - 20 Way 18th edition consumer unit with RCBO's, greater circuit protection great prices.
(all other sizes of consumer unit are available)

New Regulations are now in force for Consumer Unit / Fuse Board Replacements. It is a requirement of BS7671 that all new/replacement consumer units in dwellings should be constructed of a non combustible material e.g. Steel. We can also supply and install Surge Protection and Arc Fault Detection devices.

NOW is a great time to upgrade the electrical safety protection in your house. Every consumer unit replacement comes with a full test of your home's electrical system.

I will make your house electrical system safe. Replace your Consumer Unit or old style Fuse Box with a modern 18th edition RCBO consumer unit.  Fully installed including supply & earth conductors, full testing & certification of the installation & safety check of existing wiring to BS7671 (2018) & Part P of the building regs.

Need an electrical safety check? Remember- 'Loose Wires Cause Fires' We can provide a full Domestic Electrical Installation Condition Report (DEICR) after a full inspection of the electrical system in your home. On completion of the report we will provide a quote for any remedial work required.

Power outside? we can fit outdoor sockets that are completely weatherproof even when the plug is in.
