Electrical testing

Just like your car MOT - It is important, at regular intervals, that you ensure you carry out the necessary checks on the condition of the electrics in your home. Over a period of time, all electrical installations will naturally deteriorate.

This will help to identify if there are any faults or defects which could require improvement. And will ensure the safe operation of the installation going forward.

Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)

An EICR will highlight any defects in the electrical installation on your premises . Including inadequate short circuit protection, damaged/outdated wiring, and faulty connections which may give rise to danger, along with observations for which improvement is recommended.

As a homeowner or homebuyer, you want the peace of mind that the electrics in your home are safe. Similarly, landlords with an awareness of their electrical safety obligations, undertake regular periodic inspections before any tenancy begins, and each installation must be tested and inspected every five years.

How We Conduct EICR Testing

We will need access to all of the rooms in your premises and everything unplugged. The report will typically take around 2-3 hours to complete, depending on the size of your property.

 

At CC Electrical Services, we follow a detailed and systematic process to ensure that each EICR is comprehensive and accurate. Our experienced electricians are meticulous in their inspections, ensuring no detail is overlooked and it conforms to the IET wiring regulations.

 

Initial Assessment: We begin with a visual inspection of the electrical installations. o identify any visible signs of defects, damage or deterioration. Your electricity won’t be turned off during the inspection.

Testing: We will conduct a series of tests to check the integrity of wiring and components. The power is required to be switched off for the testing of circuits and verifying operation of the circuit protection devices. 

Documentation: We document all findings and provide a detailed report.

Recommendations: Based on the report, we offer recommendations (if any) for any necessary repairs or upgrades.

Certification: Once all issues are addressed, we issue the EICR certification.

Electrical installation certificate (EIC) will be provided for inspection & testing new installations, or new additions to existing installations (new circuits).

Minor Electrical Installation Work Certificate will be provided for small additions or alterations (no new circuits).
