Inspection and Testing
Periodic Electrical Testing in Northleach

The best way to ensure your home doesn’t become a statistic for electrical fires in Northleach and the local areas of Eastington, Farmington and Chedworthis 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 Northleach 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 GL54 postcode area who carry out EICR inspections and testing in households in and around Northleach and the local villages.
Landlords in Northleach are legally required to arrange for an EICR every five years – or when there is a change of tenancy in their rental property.
