Manned 24 hour Call-out Service

Bank Holiday Call Outs

Information, Our Latest News

As a multi service 24 hour call out contractor dealing in Electrical, Mechanical and Fire & Security work, every day of the year can present our team with challenges.

With call outs coming through at any hour of any day of the year, we are always ready to help our customer deal with things like electrical faults, boiler problems and intruder alarms. Over Bank Holiday weekends however (like we have just had), the importance of our work becomes even more invaluable for sectors like hospitality who depend so heavily on weekends like this.

So with the recent bank holiday weekend now past, we wanted to share some examples of the work our electricians, mechanical contractors and fire & security engineers have had to deal with over the long weekend.

Electrical issues for a Hotel Chain

A hotel had electrical problems with one specific room in their hotel. Because the hotel was fully booked for the weekend, they needed it fixed fast.  There was no power going to the lights in the room and luckily for the hotel, the issue was spotted before guests had arrived. Our Electricians were dispatched and managed to repair the issue within just two hours of the call meaning that the business was able to keep the booking and did not loose any trade over the busy bank holiday period.

No power to the dishwasher

During the busy bank holiday weekend, bars across the city are very very busy meaning the turnover of drinking glasses is incredibly high.  For this busy city centre pub however, their dishwasher stopped working on Saturday meaning that they could not keep pace with the demand for clean drinking glasses – vital for any pub in Scotland.  Our electricians quickly managed to identify a fault with the RCBO, replaced it and made sure that everything was working a-okay with the dishwasher before departing.

A lack of hot water in the hotel

Who doesn’t love a nice hot shower or a steaming hot bath?  For one hotel, that was a problem because a rod stat in the heating system had stopped working. This meant that 8 of their bedrooms were not getting any hot water at all.  Our Mechanical team were able to identify the fault, repair the issue and ensure that all the rooms had hot water again quickly.

Electrical lighting problems

Emergency lighting is critical for the safety of those within a building to safely evacuate in the event of an emergency.  So when a large retail site developed a fault with their emergency lighting on one of the floors of their building, it needed to be fixed quickly.  Our Fire & Security team were quickly dispatched and identified an electrical fault that was causing the issue with the lighting.  The fault was fixed and the building was able to continue operating as per usual.


These are just a taste of the kind of work that our Electricians, Mechanical Contractors and Fire & Security Engineers deal with week in, week out at HF.
