Smart meter - electric- problems
I would NOT recommend a smart meter. My electrics and fuse box worked perfectly before I had mine fitted with no issues at all. It was fitted the Friday of Spring Bank weekend and my fuse box kept tripping afterwards and wouldn’t stay on. Apparently this is a common problem according to the Engineers manager who he rang because he didn’t know what to do ! The engineer phoned his boss and he said I would have to get an electrician to look at it, this has happened before on other installations. WHY ARE WE NOT MADE AWARE OF THIS ISSUE. Getting a reputable electrician on a Friday afternoon of a bank holiday weekend is not easy. Siemens didn’t offer any help apart from advice to contact an electrician and off he went and left a me with no electricity! Fridge, freezer, etc all off. It was a good job I didn’t need electricity for medical equipment. 2 weeks later I have some electric on due to a very kind electrician doing a temporary job at short notice but the fuse box still keeps tripping and just waiting for the electrician to put a new box in. How we can prove it’s Siemens fault? They only thing I can prove is that it was working perfectly beforehand. I will be sending my electricians bill to Bulb with a complaint to see what they can do about it. I am disgusted with the service provided by Siemens and they should at least have an electrician on stand by to sort these issues out. DO NOT GET A SMART METER - I wish I hadn’t.
