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

Wroughton 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.

The Process
- Electrical Testing Wroughton

When you commission an EICR in Wroughton 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 Wroughton 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 Wroughton postcode areas, including SN4 as well as the outlying areas.
