Witney Periodic Domestic 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 Witney and the local areas of Curbridge, Minster Lovell and Brize Norton 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 Witney 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 OX28 postcode area who carry out EICR inspections and testing in households in and around Witney and the local villages.

Landlords in Witney 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 Witney, 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 Witney when a property when it is being sold.

The Process - Electrical Testing Witney

When you commission an EICR in Witney from Prestige Heating and Electrical Services the following information details the process:

The power is switched off.

The electrician starts the testing. 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.

During the testing our Witney electrician will fill in a detailed multi-paged report, which will identify any electrical issues and failures to meet the current regulations, according to a set of codes, giving grades to prioritise any electrical repairs or remedial work needed.

The report is returned to the office to be produced, signed and then sent to you. The report will detail all the test results including any faults found which are graded accordingly:

  • 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 fairly priced quote for your consideration if remedial works are required.

If you do require electrical testing we cover Witney postcode areas, including OX28 as well as the outlying areas.
