Electrical Testing and Safety Inspections

Our NICEIC qualified electricians provide electrical testing and safety inspection services throughout Salisbury and the surrounding areas. Keeping you safe in your home from unseen electrical dangers.

Electrical Testing and Safety Inspections

Electricity is part of our everyday life. From when we wake up to when we go to bed, it’s there throughout the day running unnoticed. So it’s easy to forget how powerful and dangerous it can be.

With this in mind, did you know that an NICEIC Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is recommended at least every 5 years for homeowners? And it’s a legal requirement for all rental properties.

It’s recommended that you regularly check that your home is electrically safe, especially where more and more electrical appliances are being installed and used to control the home and continual charging is needed.

Your electrical installations

We offer a fully comprehensive range of electrical testing services with all of our electricians being fully NICEIC qualified.

Electrical tests are also carried out on wiring and associated fixed electrical equipment to check that everything is safe.

We will:

  1. Reveal if any electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded
  2. Find any potential shock and fire hazards in electrical installations
  3. Identify any defective DIY electrical work
  4. Highlight any lack of electrical earthing or bonding
  • Try to visually check your electrics from time to time, and if it looks suspicious, seek professional help.
  • If you’re a DIY enthusiast always get your installations checked professionally once finished. Nearly half of reported issues have been because of DIY installations.
  • Water and electricity are not nest friends. The bathroom is potentially the most dangerous place to get electrical installations wrong. Knowing the electrical safety zones in a bathroom is critical to safety and compliance.
  • Make sure your kitchen appliance are installed properly and that the appliances themselves are used in accordance with the instruction manuals
  • If it’s raining, DO NOT use electrical gardening equipment outdoors. Dry weather conditions are always favourable for garden tools and equipment.
  • If you’ve had a flood, it is likely that the electrics have been damaged and require fixing or reinstalling. It’s always good to ask a professional electrical installer first before you do anything else.
  • Always be cautious with electrical fires. You should never hang anything in front of or over the front of a fire – even if you think it is a safe distance away.
