ELECTRICAL SAFETY INSPECTIONS

To protect you and your property every electrical installation should be inspected and tested periodically to ensure it remains in safe condition for continued use.

Electrical wiring, sockets, fuse boards, light fittings and so on deteriorate due to age and wear & tear; this can lead to a risk of potentially an electric shock or even a fire. A periodic inspection is recommended every 10 years for private homes, and more frequently for rented homes. NH Electrical regularly carry out these important safety inspections and provide our clients with a full written report known as an Electrical Installation Condition Report (or E.I.C.R.)

What does an Electrical Safety Inspection Involve?

Electrical Installation Condition Report documents the condition of your electrical wiring and gives you a clear safety answer (Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory) and also the overall condition of the electrics.  The report also details any faults found and tells you how serious they are.

The size of the property is what determines how long the inspection testing will take. It is usually calculated on around 1 hour per circuit.

The inspection & testing involves minimal disruption to the property (no mess or need to lift floorboards). The inspection is carried out by making a visual inspection of the electrical installation’s followed by detailed tests of the consumer unit and at the sockets, light fittings and any other electrical outlets throughout the property. Once our on-site work is complete, we take our results back to the office to assess all the measurements and create your report.

Why should you have an Electrical Installation Condition Report?

  • Buying a house – Most house buying surveys do not cover the electrical installations. We recommend checking your new home is safe before you move in, this can be carried out before the purchase of the property to save you from any unforeseen future costs.

  • Landlord – If you privately let a domestic property, then most professional lettings agents require you to have an electrical safety certificate. The report shows that you have taken your tenants safety seriously by having an up to date Electrical Installation Condition Report.

  • Fire or Flood – If unfortunately your property has experienced major damage caused by a fire or flood, it is wise to get the electrical installation checked and the results properly documented.

  • Concerned home owner – It is worth having a safety inspection if your electrics are old and have not been checked for a long time. If you frequently experience flickering lights, blown fuses, or circuit breakers tripping then we recommend a safety inspection.

What does the report contain?

The report documents any faults that are detected, ranging from minor to immediately dangerous faults immediately dangerous and recommendations for safety improvements. We will then provide you, should you wish a FREE quotation to rectify any issues.

PORTABLE APPLIANCE TESTING (PAT)

Portable Appliance Testing is a routine check of all electrical appliances in your home or workplace. It is a legal requirement for all employers and Landlords to ensure that appliances are safe and well maintained and PAT testing (basingstoke) by a qualified electrician certifies that they comply with all health and safety regulations.

We conduct PAT tests using the latest testing equipment to ensure they are carried out efficiently and thoroughly. All appliances tested are then labelled with a dated pass or fail sticker and a report of the testing will also be provided along with future PAT testing reminders.

FAULT FINDING

Tripped circuits or blown fuses can happen at any time, which can be worrying, leaving you without lights or power. NH Electrical are on hand to help. Our fully qualified and highly trained electricians can be with you at short notice to locate and repair any electrical faults.

We have many years’ experience of electrical fault finding in both domestic & commercial properties.

Most typical electrical fault such as fuse board problems, tripping, blown fuses, tripped RCDs, lighting and power faults can be repaired on the initial call out by our experienced electrician. An initial inspection of fittings and fixtures will be carried out to check for loose connections signs of burning or dampness. If we cannot detect any obvious faults we will proceed to carry out an in-depth electrical fault finding test using calibrated electrical test equipment.

Once we have completed these tests, if any remedial work is needed to reinstate power or fix the cause of the fault, we will provide you with a detailed FREE quotation before the commencement of any additional work.
