The electrical installation in your home or business is a complex system made up of many different components. Over time, these components may degrade and become less effective. If neglected completely, this can result in an increased risk of electric shock or fire. It is therefore very important to get your electrical installation checked by an NICEIC-approved electrician every five to ten years.
We offer comprehensive electrical testing and inspection services for homeowners, landlords, businesses and anyone responsible for a property with electrical fittings. Get in touch to book a slot with one of our engineers.
The first step in any electrical inspection is a thorough visual check of the property. This is a comprehensive way to identify a range of potential defects. To carry out this inspection, our electrician will need to check every room in your property. This allows them to check a range of things, including:
Our electrician will take notes on all of these areas, among others, in order to build up a general picture of the condition of your electrical installation and advise you accordingly.
An electrical installation condition report, or ‘EICR’, is more detailed than a visual inspection, and involves a range of circuit tests and other checks. This involves temporarily turning off your main electricity in order to accurately identify any problems.
An EICR is a great idea if you are buying or selling a property, as it provides an accurate picture of the condition of the circuits in the building, highlighting any necessary repairs. It is also a legal requirement for landlords in order to improve the overall safety of their tenants. So, whether you’re a private homeowner, a landlord or an estate agent, if you require an EICR, we’re the team to call.
We can also carry out portable appliance testing, or ‘PAT’, in domestic and commercial settings. This is a compulsory measure for businesses as it ensures that all electrical appliances are safe and compliant with the latest health and safety regulations. Contact our team today to find out more.
