Inspection and Testing
Periodic Electrical Testing
in Stow on the Wold
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 Stow on the Wold and the local areas of The Slaughters, Bourton on the Water and The Rissingtons 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 Stow on the Wold 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 Stow on the Wold and the local villages.
Landlords in Stow on the Wold 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 Stow on the Wold, 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 Stow on the Wold when a property is sold.

What Happens when an EICR is Done?
When you call us to arrange an appointment for an EICR to be carried out at your Stow on the Wold property you should be aware that the testing may take several hours depending on the size of the house to complete and there will be no power during this time.
Our electrical testing experts in Stow on the Wold 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.
The checks include not only wiring, but also the fuse board circuit breakers and Residual Current Devices, earthing and bonding arrangements, and other parts of your home’s electrical installation which are hidden from view.
The report is completed on site and then brought back to the office to be produced and signed by the electrician who carried out the testing.
If there are any electrical issues found they will be graded on the report as follows:
C1 indicate an immediately dangerous situation and will have been dealt with straight away on site;
C2 faults mean potential danger with immediate work needed
