When was the last time you checked your electrics?
The Electrical Safety Council recommends that the electrical installation in an owner-occupied home is surveyed at least every 10 years.
Do you know when yours was last given a thorough inspection?
What is an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)?
An Electrical Installation Condition Report is a report based on a thorough inspection and test of a property’s electrical installation.
Even if you’re not a landlord, EICRs may be important at the time you sell your home. Homebuyers often ask for them and expect them to be provided by the seller.
Trust Gregor’s registered electricians to produce an EICR for your property!
First, we thoroughly inspect and test your property’s installation, including:
- Checking whether circuits are overloaded
- Assessing existing earthing and bonding
- Testing switches, sockets and lighting fittings
- Identifying safety risks.
Then we report our findings in a complete Electrical Installation Condition Report. This sets out any safety issues that have been identified, and recommended remedial work.
If you recently moved into your home and are unsure about the safety of your electrics, you can help put your mind to rest with Gregor’s Electrical Installation Condition Report.
What are landlords’ responsibilities for Electrical Safety Testing?
Did you know that the electrical installation in any landlord’s tenanted property that is classed as an HMO must be surveyed at least once every 5 years?
Whether your tenanted property has HMO status or not, it is your legal responsibility to make sure that the installation is safe both at the time when your tenants move in and throughout the duration of their tenancy.
All electrical appliances must be safe and CE-marked to indicate the manufacturer’s compliance with applicable EU laws.
If a tenant suffers injury as a result of any electrical causes in your property, and no adequate electrical testing has been carried out, you may be personally liable.
What is PAT?
PAT is short for Portable Appliance Testing.
Portable Appliance Testing or PAT also allows you to check the safety of your electrical appliances and equipment.
As the name suggests, this is all about the safety of your electrical appliances and equipment.
You can rely on Gregor’s qualified electricians for all your PAT needs in Bristol, Bath and the surrounding area!
We will carry out a range of both visual checks and more formal tests of your electrical appliances, then report our findings and any safety issues we’ve identified, as well as recommending appropriate courses of action to remedy these.
