The best way to know if your electrics are safe is to have a qualified electrician undertake an Electric Installation Condition Report (EICR) for you. This is an extensive test of your home electrics for which you will receive a detailed report on completion.
In doing this we will check the electrics around your home to ensure that it complies with safety regulations. We will also test each circuit to ensure that everything is in order and wired correctly. Plus, we test to ensure that any safety measures trip as they should.
For a domestic home this is advisory every 10 years, although for a rental property this is now a legal requirement and is required every 5 years or on a change of occupancy.
This is a great way to give you peace of mind for you and your families’ safety.
If we find anything that isn’t safe then we will provide all the information you need to help you decide how you might like to resolve this. There is no obligation for us to continue with any identified work of course.
