Electrical installation condition report (EICR)
In order to comply with the Wiring Regulations, our team of electrical engineers conduct an Electrical Installation Conditions Report (previously called the Periodic Inspection Report). Just as the name implies, a periodic inspection seeks to:
- Identify if there are any electrical circuit or equipment overloads
- Identify areas of potential shock risks or fire threats
- Discover any defective electrical service
- Point out lack of bonding or earthing
Only registered electricians are qualified to perform this service. Afterwards, our electricians will issue an Electrical Installation Condition Report. This will show details of any problems, dangers, defects or non-compliances discovered.
If there are any issues, we’ll obtain permission from you to go ahead with correction and repairs.
Testing for residential and commercial landlords
As a landlord, whether you run a residential building or a commercial property, the onus lies on you to provide your tenants with safety and security from the building itself. This includes eliminating wiring risks and electrical hazards lurking within the building.
It is therefore essential to perform frequent tests on your electricals to curb any danger associated with the electrical condition of the building. Failure to do this could result in occupant risk and you could be sued for professional negligence. It’s better to be safe than sorry – periodic inspection and testing not only ensures compliance, but averts danger.
Testing before a property purchase
Buying a house can be a very big investment for anyone, especially if it’s your first time. However, it is important to perform a complete electrical testing before you commit financially. There are cases of individuals who invested in a property only to spend thousands of pounds renovating the electrical system because it was severely defective.
Sometimes the financial loss is not recoupable. Knowing the status of the property can influence the direction of your negotiation. Similarly, if your house is in the market, you’ll want to make sure your wiring system is in top condition, or it could end up unsellable. Our engineers can provide electrical testing services wherever you are in the UK.
Homeowner’s electrical testing
According to the Wiring Regulation, electrical installations in privately owned properties ought to be tested every 10 years. However, in reality, most private properties have never been tested. If your building is old, there’s a high possibility that it hasn’t been tested for decades.
A current Electrical Installation Conditions Report will give you peace of mind knowing that the members of your household are safe from any electrical hazards.
Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
While you check your building’s wiring system, it is important that you don’t neglect the electrical appliances such as your toasters, vacuum cleaners, washing machines and so on. Over time, these items may become susceptible to damage. You want to know that your tenants are safe using your equipment.
Mittens Electrical electricians perform PAT to identify and correct leaky appliances, thus eliminating electrical shock. If your appliances need to be repaired, we can fix them immediately- otherwise we would recommend you to get an entirely new set.
Emergency lighting testing
If a property has an emergency lighting, then it is the legal obligation of the title holder to maintain the electrical system regularly. At Mittens Electrical, the UK, our electricians are capable of performing periodic inspections and tests on emergency lighting systems, including maintenance and full repair services.
