Inspection and Testing
Electrical Testing in Dursley 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 Dursley 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 Dursley should get an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) from a qualified, reputable Dursley 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 a insurance claim if they feel any the damage occurred was the result of neglected electrical faults. You should also arrange an EICR in Dursley if you are buying a property, whatever its age or condition to make sure the electrics are safe and the working.
Landlords in Dursley 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.

The Process - Electrical Testing Dursley
When you commission an EICR in Dursley 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 Dursley 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.
