Inspection and Testing
Why your Home in Cricklade 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 Cricklade 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 Cricklade should get an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) from a qualified, reputable Cricklade 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 Cricklade if you are moving into or out of property, whatever its age or condition.
Landlords in Cricklade 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.
