Inspection and Testing
Periodic Electrical Testing in Kemble
Electrical faults are responsible for around half of house fires in the UK, according to the Electrical Safety-First organisation (the recognised technical authority on electrical safety). The best way to ensure your home doesn’t become a statistic for electrical fires 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.
An EICR is issued to Kemble homeowners and landlords after a comprehensive inspection of the electrical systems and installation of a residence. Prestige has a team of competent, certified and qualified electrical testers serving the GL7 postcode area who carry out EICR inspections and testing in households in and around Kemble and the local villages.
Landlords in Kemble 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 law compelling homeowners to have an EICR in Kemble, 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 Kemble when a property is sold.

EICR’s Kemble – What’s Involved?
Each property in Kemble 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 Kemble 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 Kemble 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.
