It is not always easy to know if your electricals require inspecting or testing. However, checking the condition of your electrical wires is crucial in preventing safety hazards and costly damages. With this, we advise all customers to undergo regular inspection and ask you to look out for the following signs that could be onset by an electrical issue.
Some of these signs include:
- Dim lights
- Flickering lights
- Frequent circuit tripping
- Hot outlets
- Sparking from outlets
- Burning smell from outlets
- Buzzing sound from outlets
- Defective plug sockets
- And many more!
Our testing and inspection services are known as PAT testings and Periodic inspections. PAT testing allows us to assess the condition of all portable appliances to check they are working to the correct safety requirements. Periodic inspections involve a thorough examination of the wiring in your electrical circuits, appliances and devices, where we look for any signs of wear and tear or potential damage. This allows us to make sure your electricals adhere to the current regulations and are up and running safely. Once complete, we provide a full report, listing what we have found, and if there are any damages, the process of repair. Once the repair work is done, you can be left feeling confident that your home is an electrical hazard-free environment until the next testing.
We advise all commercial businesses to undergo PAT testing every 2-4 years! This is due to the high frequency of appliance use, as most appliances are used multiple times each day in the workplace. This is often a requirement for insurance policies, which ensures the safety of staff and visitors.
We also advise commercial businesses to undergo a periodic inspection between 1-5 years, with no more than five years in between. For domestic properties, we suggest a gap of between 5-10 years. This prevents extreme damage from taking place, along with the possibility of costly repair work.
