Inspection and Testing
Electrical Testing in Aldbourne Homes
The Which? Consumer group says on average four people a day are injured or killed fires related to electrical faults. They recommend every home should have a regular electrical safety test to ensure that the occupants and property are not casualties of an electrical fire. We are experienced Aldbourne electricians who regularly see the potential risks of dangerous wiring and we fully support this recommendation.
The leading technical authority on electrical safety in the UK is the organisation Electrical Safety First and also advise that like elsewhere in the country private homeowners in Aldbourne should get an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) from a qualified, reputable Aldbourne electrical firm at least every 10 years. This is vital for your own safety and to protect your home. Some household insurance companies may refuse to pay out on an insurance claim if they feel any the damage occurred was the result of neglected electrical faults. You should also arrange an EICR in Aldbourne if you are buying a property, whatever its age or condition to make sure the electrics are safe and the working.
Landlords in Aldbourne have a legal responsibility to keep their tenants safe, and an EICR electrical test is required every five years, or when there is a change of tenancy.

EICR’s Aldbourne – What’s Involved?
Each property in Aldbourne is different, so the amount of time an electrical test takes varies it can take just a couple of hours or it can take a lot longer. During the course of the electrical testing your power will be turned off.
Whilst our Aldbourne electrician carries out the electrical testing they will be filling in a detailed multi paged report about the condition of the electrical installations in your Aldbourne home including the fuseboard, visible wiring, earthing etc. This report will identify any problems and failures to meet the regulations. There are a set of codes, giving grades to prioritise any electrical repairs or remedial work needed.
Any faults found that are C1 indicate an immediately dangerous situation and will be dealt with straight away on site; any C2 faults mean potential danger with immediate work needed; any C3 faults mean improvement is recommended; and an FI means further investigation is needed without delay.
