Inspection and Testing
Periodic Electrical Testing in Lechlade
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 in Lechlade and the local areas of Little Faringdon, Kelmscott, and Buscot 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 Lechlade 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 Lechlade and the local villages.
Landlords in Lechlade 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 Lechlade, 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 Lechlade when a property is sold.

Electrical Testing in Lechlade – What Happens?
As all properties are different sizes there is no standard set time to carry out electrical testing it may take a couple of hours or it may take a few, the one thing to note is that during test the power in your home will be off.
Part of the testing involves our Lechlade electricians checking the electrical installations, including the wiring, fuse board, earthing and bonding, circuitry, sockets and light switches. Our electrician will be looking for signs of damage and deterioration, defects and any other signs that your electrical system in Lechlade is not up to regulatory standards or could pose a danger to you, any other occupants and your property.
During the test our Lechlade electrician will fill in a detailed multi-paged report, and once it is typed up and signed a copy will be sent to you.
If there are any faults found that will be detailed; C1 indicate an immediately dangerous situation and would 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.
We do electrical testing in the Lechlade postcode areas, including GL7 as well as the outlying areas.
