Electrical Testing

According to the Electrical Safety-First organisation (the recognised technical authority on electrical safety), Electrical faults are responsible for around half of all house fires in the UK. The best way to ensure your home doesn’t become a statistic in Uffington and the local areas of Fernham, Longcot and Watchfield is to ensure your 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 Uffington homeowners and landlords once a comprehensive inspection and test of the electrical systems and installation of a residence is carried out. Prestige has a team of competent, certified and qualified electrical testers serving the SN7 postcode area who carry out EICR inspections and testing in households in and around Uffington and the local villages.

Landlords in Uffington are now 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 Uffington, but for safety’s sake it is recommended that it is done at least once every 10 years. It’s also becoming common practice now to have an EICR performed in Uffington when a property when it is being 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 Uffington 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 Uffington 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

C3 faults mean improvement is recommended

FI means further investigation is needed without delay

We can provide a competitive quote to repair any electrical faults found.

We carry out electrical testing in the Uffington postcode areas, including SN7 as well as the outlying areas.
