What does it involve?
An EICR will check to see if your property’s electrics have any faults that cannot be identified through a visual check. A number of faults may occur, such as electrical circuits being overloaded or overheating during use, cable degradation over time. If any electrical circuit is not properly installed – for example, without earthing or bonding to safely secure the electrics – it may potentially cause a fire or shock hazard. EICR testing will identify any defective electrical work within the system.
A visual check can also be performed to give you a quick analysis of how safe your property is. This will look for broken sockets and light switches, damaged cables and scorching / burn marks as a result of overloading the power outlet.
After the test has been completed, our test engineers will produce a certificate for you. This will be in a Digital and paper versions so you will always have a hard copy for reference.This will detail any damages, deterioration, defects or other dangerous conditions. Due to the Wiring regulations BS7671 constantly evolving we will highlight any safety standards and things that might put people at risk.
