What is an EICR Report?

As with almost everything else, electrical systems and wiring gradually deteriorate as time passes. Because the deterioration is usually gradual and unnoticeable whilst it’s happening, you likely won’t find out about it until it’s too late. When the deterioration becomes critical, this can result in damage to other aspects of your electrical system or electrical appliances. It can also lead to fires and pose a danger to those within your property. With an EICR, such deteriorations in your electrical system can be discovered and fixed before they become critical. This will help forestall damage and ensure the safety and security of your property and those using it.

It will also help ensure your property satisfies pertinent current regulations at all times. While having an EICR carried out isn’t a legal requirement, we strongly recommend it in order tokeep your electrics functioning optimally and your property safe. We would advise you to have an EICR periodic inspection performed at least every ten years on a domestic property and at least every five years for rental properties (or at the change of each tenancy).

If you don’t know whether your property has ever undergone a periodic inspection or can’t remember the last time it did, contact us at Mittens Electrical today for a recognised EICR report.

What happens during Periodic Inspection?

We have specialists on staff who are qualified and registered to perform periodic inspections for all types of domestic and residential buildings in the UK. All our periodic inspections are personalised and tailored to match each individual building. This is important, because every building is different and therefore requires its own unique process to accomplish a comprehensive inspection that covers all areas. We can also perform periodic inspections on commercial properties.

For a periodic inspection of your domestic property, we will begin by discussing with youthe level of inspection you prefer. We can check the obvious aspects of your electrical system or go deeper, such as inspecting cables in floors, walls, and so on.

There could be operational limitations for inspecting the electrical system of a commercial property that can impact your servers or phone lines. However, we can develop a plan that minimises how much of your business is impacted (and for how long) whilst the inspection takes place.

Once the periodic inspection is completed, we can provide an Electrical Installation Condition Report, which will summariseyour electrical installation’s safety. This will come in handy when making an insurance claim on your property and in other scenarios. Depending on the condition of your electrical system, you might not need another EICR report for another 7-10 years.

If we discover any faults in your electrical systemduring the inspection, we can immediately recommend and deliver the best solutions to promptly rectify them. We promise you that our periodic inspections and EICR reports are honest and accurate.

How much does an EICR cost?

The cost of an EICR Report will vary from property to property, based on size of the premises, age of the property, extensiveness of the electrical system, and so on. A one-bedroom flat can cost as little as £100, while a five-bedroom house or larger can cost about £300. Generally, the cost of an Electrical Installation Condition Report provided by Mittens Electrical is amongst the most competitive you will find in the UK and it’s also great value for money.

Why do you need an EICR report?

Small electrical faults can be a sign of a bigger problem. Brushing such faults aside can lead to complications further down the road that will result in a more extensive deterioration of your electrical system. In fact, did you know that electrical faults cause approximately half of all UK house fires? You can avoid such expensive occurrences with a cost effective EICR performed by our experts.

Besides protecting your property, your loved ones, and/or tenants, an EICR is also often a requirement of home insurance firms. If this is incorporated in the fine print of your insurance policy (which it usually is), you might not be able to make a successful claim if you don’t have a valid EICR. That is, an outdated or non-existent EICR can invalidate your home insurance policy with your insurer, who will no longer be liable to pay out for an electrical fire or other damage caused by an electrical fault that could have been discovered during periodic testing.

To protect your interests, we can provide an EICR report every five years or at a change of tenancy.
