Electrical Testing in your Ogbourne St George 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 Ogbourne St George 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 Ogbourne St George should get an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) from a qualified, reputable Ogbourne St George 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 Ogbourne St George if you are moving home, whatever its age or condition of the property.

Ogbourne St George 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.

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 Ogbourne St George 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 Ogbourne St George is not up to regulatory standards or could pose a danger to you, any other occupants and your property.
