The best way to ensure your home doesn’t become a statistic for electrical fires in Nailsworth and the local areas of Forest Green, Watledge and Woodchesteris 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.

Each property in Nailsworth is different, so the amount of time an electrical test takes varies. During the course of the electrical testing your power will be turned off.
Our electrical testing experts in Nailsworth will perform a thorough check of all the fixed wiring in your home to ensure they are safe and compliant with regulations, and to find any potential issues. During the test our Nailsworth electrician will fill in a detailed multi-paged report, and once it has been produced and signed off, you’ll be sent a copy by email or post.
On the report any faults found are categorised. C1 faults indicate an immediately dangerous situation and would have been dealt with straight away on site; any C2 faults found mean potential danger with immediate work needed; any C3 faults found mean improvement is recommended; and an FI means further investigation is needed without delay.
