Inspection and Testing
Periodic Electrical Testing in Tetbury
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 Tetbury and the local areas of Doughton, Westonbirt and Avening 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 Tetbury 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 GL8 postcode area who carry out EICR inspections and testing in households in and around Tetbury and the local villages.
Landlords in Tetbury 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 Tetbury, 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 Tetbury when a property is sold.

EICR Codes for Remedial Electrical Work in Tetbury
Each property in Tetbury 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 Tetbury 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 Tetbury 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.
We do electrical testing in the Tetbury postcode areas, including GL8 as well as the outlying areas.
