Inspection and Testing
Grove Periodic Domestic Electrical Testing
According to the Electrical Safety-First organisation (the recognised technical authority on electrical safety), Electrical faults are responsible for around half of all house fires in the UK. The best way to ensure your home doesn’t become a statistic in Grove and the local areas of Wantage, Uffington and Stanford in the Vale is to ensure your property has an up to date Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) from a trusted local electrical firm like Prestige Heating and Electrical Services.
An EICR is issued to Grove homeowners and landlords once a comprehensive inspection and test of the electrical systems and installation of a residence is carried out. Prestige has a team of competent, certified and qualified electrical testers serving the OX12 postcode area who carry out EICR inspections and testing in households in and around Grove and the local villages.
Landlords in Grove are now legally required to arrange for an EICR every five years – or when there is a change of tenancy in their rental property. There is no law compelling homeowners to have an EICR in Grove, but for safety’s sake it is recommended that it is done at least once every 10 years. It’s also becoming common practice now to have an EICR performed in Grove when a property when it is being sold.

EICR’s - What’s Involved?
Each property in Grove 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 Grove 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 Grove 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.
When the electrical inspection and testing of your home in Grove is complete, we’ll produce the typed EICR report and, if required,a no-obligation competitively priced quotation to carry out any or all of the recommended remedial works.
