Domestic Electrical Testing (EICR) in Buckland

Electrical faults are responsible for around fifty percent of house fires in the UK, this is according to the Electrical Safety-First organisation (the recognised authority on electrical safety). The best way to ensure your home doesn’t become a statistic for an electrical fire in Buckland and the local areas of Faringdon, Stanford in the Vale and Littleworth is to make sure the property has an up to date Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) from a trusted local electrical firm like Prestige Heating and Electrical Services.

Landlords in Buckland are legally required to arrange for an EICR every five years – or when there is a change of tenancy in their rental property. There’s no legislation for homeowners to have an EICR in Buckland, but for safety’s sake it is recommended that it is done at least once every 10 years. It’s also becoming common practice to have an EICR performed in Buckland when a property is sold.

The Process - Electrical Testing Buckland

When you commission an EICR in Buckland from Prestige Heating and Electrical Services the following information details the process:

The power is switched off.

The electrician starts the testing. The checks include not only wiring, but also the fuse board circuit breakers and Residual Current Devices, earthing and bonding arrangements, and other parts of your home’s electrical installation which are hidden from view.

During the testing our Buckland electrician will fill in a detailed multi-paged report, which will identify any electrical issues and failures to meet the current regulations, according to a set of codes, giving grades to prioritise any electrical repairs or remedial work needed.

The report is returned to the office to be produced, signed and then sent to you. The report will detail all the test results including any faults found which are graded accordingly:

  • Faults found that are C1 indicate an immediately dangerous situation and would be dealt with straight away on site;
  • Faults found that are C2 mean potential danger with immediate work needed;
  • Faults found that are C3 mean improvement is recommended;                                                                    
  • FI means further investigation is needed without delay.

 

We will provide a no obligation fairly priced quote for your consideration if remedial works are required.
