Electrical Testing

Performing an electrical test is the best way to understand the age and condition of your wiring, this helps us better realise how well your electrics are working and whether it is necessary for any safety related improvements to be made. Conducting electrical testing can also highlight possible improvements that you may want to take care of in the future when time or money permits.

We adhere to the parameters set out by BS7671 (IEE wiring regulations) we will only notify our clients of deviations or things we deem to be unsafe within our professional opinion, we will not exasperate or scaremonger our customers into unnecessary improvements that they do not need.

When have you last had your electrics tested by a professional?

What are you testing?

We test all of the fixed wiring within the property, highlighting any defective or potentially dangerous fixtures or fittings. Our electrical systems are also closely tied to the mechanical elements of a property it is necessary for all of our gas and water services to be earthed, this is achieved with the use of a clamp on the gas/ water pipe itself, during the test we will also test the adequacy of the earthing at these points.

The electrical test doesn’t just test the quality of the cabling within the house, we also complete a test on the incoming cable to the property as it is irrelevant if the cabling within the property is ok if the incoming cable is not adequate at its source.

Common problems that we can identify and solve are:

    • Cracked or faulty electrical points
    • Warm electrical fixtures
    • Redundant switches
    • Improperly removed electrical cabling
    • Tripping issues at fuse board (consumer unit)
    • Power outages

EICR

EICR( Electrical Installation Condition Report) :

It’s of the utmost importance to have the quality and condition of electrical installations checked regularly. For a dwelling the timeframe between each test is 10 years and for a commercial property 5 years; a let property would come under the commercial property jurisdiction. All of our electricians are competent and trained to complete condition reports to the standards laid out in BS 7671.

After completion of the test a certificate will be issued, if the certificate is deemed to be unsatisfactory a quotation for any necessary remedial work to achieve a satisfactory report will be given; the quotation is not obligatory and no further work will be undertaken until a request is made from the client.

For a quotation please contact Static Electrical on 0800 002 9547 or 07963 560 776.

Periodic Testing

A periodic is exactly what it states: a test that should be carried out periodically on all the fixed wiring of your dwelling or commercial property. BS7671 stipulates the period for a dwelling to be 10 years and 5 years for a commercial property. Although there is a time frame in place, you can’t be too careful as poor wiring can potentially be dangerous so if in any doubt be sure to contact a professional. A periodic test has more recently become known as an Electrical Installation Condition report although the procedure has stayed exactly the same.

After completion of the test a certificate will be issued. If the certificate is deemed to be unsatisfactory a quotation for any necessary remedial work to achieve a satisfactory report will be given; the quotation is not obligatory and no further work will be undertaken until a request is made from the client.

For a quotation please contact Static Electrical on 0800 002 9547 or 07963 560 776.

Landlords

The landlord has a duty to their tenant to provide a home electrically safe, the way to achieve this is to perform an electrical installation condition report every 5 years, or every change of tenancy depending on which comes sooner.
The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 states that a Landlord is responsible “to keep in repair and proper working order the installations in the dwelling house for the supply of water, gas and electricity….”
