Inspection and Testing
Periodic Electrical Testing
in South Cerney
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 South Cerney and the local areas of Cerney Wick, Siddington and Ashton Keynes 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 South Cerney 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 South Cerney and the local villages.
Landlords in South Cerney are legally required to arrange for an EICR every five years – or when there is a change of tenancy in their rental property. There is no law compelling homeowners to have an EICR in South Cerney, 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 South Cerney when a property is sold.

Electrical Testing in South Cerney – The Process
To make you aware during the course of the electrical testing your power will be turned off and depending upon the size of your property and the number of fuseboards etc that will determine how long the electrician will be on site. On average it is between 2 and 4 hours.
During the testing our South Cerney electrician will fill in a detailed multi-paged report, this will be sent to you after it has been produced by the office. The report will detail all the test results and any findings of electrical issues that are non-compliant with the current regulations or dangerous. The report grades any faults found as follows:
Faults found that are C1 indicate an immediately dangerous situation and would be dealt with straight away on site; Faults found that are C2 mean potential danger with immediate work needed; Faults found that are C3 mean improvement is recommended; FI means further investigation is needed without delay.
We will provide a no obligation competitive quote for your consideration if remedial works are required.
