Inspection and Testing
Electrical Testing in your Minety home and why it is Needed
The Consumer group Which? says on average 4 people a day are killed or injured in fires related to electrical faults. The recommendation is that every home should have a regular electrical safety test – and being experienced Minety electricians at Prestige Heating and Electrical Services we know the dangers that can be associated with dangerous electrical wiring and we fully 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 Minety should get an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) from a qualified, reputable Minety 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 Minety if you are moving home, whatever its age or condition of the property.
Minety Landlords with rental properties now have a legal obligation to have a satisfactory EICR electrical test carried out every 5 years or when there is a change of tenancy thus making sure their tenants stay safe.

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