Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)

An EICR provides peace of mind that your property is electrically safe. Electrical Installation Condition Reports are periodic inspections on the fixed wiring that is installed into a residential or commercial property. The inspection is thorough and will highlight any areas that need to be repaired or replaced to ensure safety. Our qualified electricians will inspect and assess the condition of the wiring. They will record the current condition and make recommendations for repairs as necessary.

A domestic EICR report is recommended to be carried out every 5 years from the date of any new electrical installations, such as house rewiring. The rules are different if you are a landlord, to find out more click here.

Homebuyer Electrical Reports

Homebuyer electrical reports are recommended when purchasing a new home, either before or after the purchase. If required we can perform a pre-purchase inspection, so you are fully aware of the condition of a property’s wiring before purchase. To book a homebuyer electrical report, please get in touch.

Landlord Electrical Safety Tests

Landlords are legally obliged to ensure their property is compliant with electrical safety legislation. We can provide landlord electrical safety checks to ensure a property meets the latest electrical safety regulations. To find out more visit our electrical safety page.

PAT Testing

PAT testing, also known as portable appliance testing, is essential to ensure any electrical equipment is safe to use. We can provide annual PAT testing which will certify that an electrical appliance meets the required safety standards. If the appliance passes the PAT test it will be certified as safe to use. We will mark passed electrical items with a sticker. This will confirm the item has passed the test and the sticker will also state the pass date and recommended date of the next test.

If you are a commercial organisation or landlord, you are advised to ensure PAT testing is completed periodically. This is to safeguard users and comply with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989. Failing to comply can put you at risk of prosecution. So, call us today to arrange PAT testing in South Devon.

How Often Do I Need PAT Testing?

The frequency of electrical equipment PAT testing varies, depending on the appliance. So, as a rule of thumb, handheld electrical equipment should be tested every 12 months. The frequency at which other non-handheld portable electrical equipment needs testing will depend on the type of equipment. We can provide expert advice, so if you are unsure, please get in touch.

Electrical Faults

If your mains power keeps tripping out for no apparent reason or any other electrical installations are not working, then call us to arrange a call out. We can visit your property to diagnose electrical faults. Our electricians can inspect your electrics and can also recommend affordable repair solutions to meet your budget.
