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

Electrical Testing in Wanborough – 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 Wanborough 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.
