UK Spares was formed in 1993. We have become one of the prime suppliers of spares within our main area of expertise which is electric water heating and electric space heating. As part of UK Electric Ltd., we are financially sound and have sister companies involved in a diverse range of activities associated with electrical, electronic, mechanical, lighting and controls. If you have an unusual problem why not give us a try.
Why repair when it seems easier to replace?
In today's market place, many installers are finding that end users are actively seeking a straightforward repair quote for their plumbing, heating and electrical needs. This is partly an interim measure in the economic downtown and also due to the growing awareness of our environmental impact. Installers need to stay attuned to this step change to be able to meet their customer's needs.
According to www.direct.gov.uk, the average person in the UK discards more than 33 tonnes of electrical waste in their lifetime - this figure relates to the average person in the street, it's not a figure 'per household' or 'per plumbing and heating installer'. Many of these items would have been repairable had the right spare part been sourced, and a simple part change can easily double the lifespan of your appliance.
It's true to say that this throw away mentality costs us more in the long term. The manufacture of a new electrical product can include using valuable materials such as gold, copper, aluminium and iron and there's also the additional consideration of transportation and packaging involved in this process. The disposal of electrical items may also pose a danger to our environment if this is not done correctly. Chemicals used in the manufacturing process, such as mercury and lead, may seep out and pollute our planet, posing a potential hazard to both wildlife and ourselves.
Saving you money:
There's often an appreciable saving to be made by ditching the 'rip out and replace' attitude. Replacing the three elements in a mid-price storage heater, including labour, would equate to around 40% of the cost of buying a new unit. There are countless examples relating to different types of electrical spares.
