Periodic Electrical Test & Inspection

Specialists in Electrical Testing

The best way to know whether your electrics are safe is to get a qualified electrician to carry out a test and inspection report (electrical installation condition report).

 

In the UK this should be done every 10 years for a domestic property, 5 Years on a rented property or on change of occupancy, and more often for business premises.

If you havent had it done lately its really worth getting a quote. For the small cost you lay out the peace of mind is priceless!

What does an Electrical Installation Condition Report Involve?

During an electrical inspection we carry out both visual checks and electrical tests.

 

Visual checks include looking at sockets and lights to check for damage or deterioration, checking the fuse box to see if it is in good condition and complies with safety regulations, looking at wiring and earthing.

 

Electrical tests involve putting an electrical current into a circuit to measure the resistance of the earthing, and to check the insulation of the wiring, we also check if the wires are the right way around (polarity) and if the RCD (Trip Switch) operates within the correct time and specifications.

 

We provide a full written PDF test report detailing our findings and this can be provided to your insurer and tenants if they require.

 

If we find anything that isn’t safe we will take photos which will be attached to the report so you know exactly what the problems are and we will provide a free itemised quote for fixing them.
