Inspection & Testing

We advise that an examination is carried out regularly for safety and peace of mind because electrics decay with usage furthermore years – and electricity can be dangerous. So it’s a critical case in keeping your house electrics up to date with modern technology or people placed at risk.

When should an EICR be carried out? Other instances are if a property is being let out or before selling a property or purchasing a beforehand owned home. We will present you a clear and precise report with each recognised fault, deterioration, and, of course, any non-compliance with the required regulations. We will also be pleased to provide you with a free no-obligation estimate for works that are needed.

The five purposes of a condition report are:

  • Finding any damage, including wear and tear, that might affect safety.
  • To find parts of the electrical installation that do not meet the IET Wiring Regulations.
  • To find anything that may cause electric shocks and high temperatures.
  • Record the inspection and testing results to assure the electrical installation is safe to practice until the next inspection.

Once the Electrical Installation Condition Report work gets completed, our electrician will estimate when the following report is needed. It is usually around five years, but it all depends on the quality of the material used in the installation.

With TK Electrical Contractors, you can have peace of mind that qualified NICEIC engineers will carry out your work.

PAT Testing

Electrical appliances start their life safe, but over course, they can worsen to such a degree that there is a substantial risk of electric shock to a user or the appliance catching fire. Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) guarantees electrical devices are safe to be used (much like an MOT checks your car is safe to drive).

In London, all workplaces must make sure electrical appliances are safe to use; several regulations condition all companies should keep their electrical appliances well maintained to ensure they are safe.

PAT testing is a way of testing electrical devices, and it prevents users from getting an electric shock & reduces the risk of fires, and it is a legal requirement in the workplace.

Why do we do Appliance Testing?

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT testing) will find faults in electrical appliances that may otherwise go unseen if you don’t have a suitable maintenance system in place.

And if someone gets an electric shock because you did nothing to prevent it, you will be held liable by law.

Many insurance companies now stipulate portable appliance testing as necessary for most businesses; if there happened to be a fire, the insurance company would want evidence that regular PAT testing report to determine a settlement.
