Why your Home in Brinkworth Needs Electrical Testing

The Which? Consumer group says on average four people a day are killed or injured in fires related to electrical faults. Therefore, they recommend every home should have a regular electrical safety test – and being experienced Brinkworth electricians who know the dangers we at Prestige Heating and Electrical Services support this recommendation.

The organisation Electrical Safety First – the leading technical authority on electrical safety in the UK – suggests that like elsewhere in the country private homeowners in Brinkworth should get an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) from a qualified, reputable Brinkworth electrical firm at least every 10 years. This is vital for your own safety and also a requirement by some insurance companies who may refuse to pay out a damage claim if they were the result of neglected electrical faults. You should also arrange an EICR in Brinkworth if you are moving into or out of property, whatever its age or condition.

Landlords in Brinkworth 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.

Electrical Testing in Brinkworth – What Happens?

As all properties are different sizes there is no standard set time to carry out electrical testing it may take a couple of hours or it may take a few, the one thing to note is that during test the power in your home will be off.

Part of the testing involves our Brinkworth electricians checking the electrical installations, including the wiring, fuse board, earthing and bonding, circuitry, sockets and light switches. Our electrician will be looking for signs of damage and deterioration, defects and any other signs that your electrical system in Brinkworth is not up to regulatory standards or could pose a danger to you, any other occupants and your property.

During the test our Brinkworth electrician will fill in a detailed multi-paged report, and once it is typed up and signed a copy will be sent to you.

If there are any faults found that will be detailed; C1 indicate an immediately dangerous situation and would 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.

We do electrical testing in the Brinkworth postcode areas, including SN15 as well as the outlying areas.
