Electrical Installation Condition Report

From revealing when circuits are overloaded to finding wiring problems, an EICR tells you the condition of your electrics. Regulations recommend that you have one at regular intervals, as the status of your electricity systems will deteriorate over time. For an occupied home, it’s usually required every 10 years, or when you are selling your property. Letting agents and landlords may need to have one every five years. You should also conduct a report every time a new tenant arrives, to ensure that your electrics were not damaged by the previous tenant. The reports are not compulsory. However, if something goes wrong in your tenanted house, you may be liable if you cannot prove you have had them tested. These reports may also lower insurance premiums., so they are incredibly beneficial.

Better to be safe

Our service is a lower-cost option when compared to similar electrical options. Providing a domestic visual inspection (DVI) service for fixed wiring, our team makes sure that your home is safe. It’s not as detailed as a periodic inspection report, but it still produces similar results. Recommendations are made if any areas of concern are found. Our team also decide an appropriate time to return for further inspections, to make sure that your home is safe.

Homebuyers’ report

  • The DVI report is used when it is necessary for a visual check. It is used to ensure the following:
  • There are no broken or missing electrical equipment and accessories.
  • There is no access to live parts without the use of a key and/or tool.
  • There are no signs of burning at any of the electrical equipment.
  • Protective main bonding is in place to incoming extraneous services.
  • That the condition of the meter tails, consumer unit(s), and supplier’s equipment is satisfactory.

The report is essential if you are buying a new house, as it shows the condition of the electrical services. It’s also used where an electrical installation certificate or electrical installation condition report (EICR - Periodic Inspection Report) exists, and any recorded C1 and/or C2 codes have been rectified. If any unsafe items are detected, an EICR should be carried out.

Complete PAT

Certain types of electrical faults are only detected with portable appliance testing (PAT). This test is usually completed if a visual exam does not find the fault. It does work both ways, as certain faults only appear with a visual inspection. Here is a sample of what is included:

  • Full inventory of appliances, locations, ID numbers
  • Certificate of compliance
  • FREE minor repairs
  • FREE microwave leakage tests
  • FREE RE testing (if repaired by us)
  • FREE file data storage
  • FREE RE test notification
  • No hidden extras
  • Commercial reports

Whether you need domestic, commercial, or industrial electric testing, our team always provide you with a cost-effective and professional service. Complying with The Electricity at Work Act is extremely important, and we provide certification and reports to aid you. Most large factories have their own team. However, the vast majority of commercial premises need assistance. Commercial electrical testing saves lives and prevents fires, so it’s incredibly important that you stay up to date. Testing is available outside of normal working hours, as our team understand the negative effect that limited power has on a business. With a background in installing electrical systems, we are here to provide the service that you are looking for.
