As electric installations deteriorate as they get older it is advisable to have it checked out so that you know everything is in safe working order.
Electrical installation testing is more commonly known as periodic inspection and testing and is completed at set times for different properties.
If a property is being sold, rented out or buying a previously occupied property you will need an Electrical Condition Report s proof.
You will also need testing for a swimming pool, a caravan, a rented home or owner occupied home.
The aim of the test is to look for any potential damage that can cause fire, check for overloading and highlight a lack of earthing or bonding. All switches, light fittings and sockets will have to be checked also.
If any electrics are deemed dangerous or damaged it will be declared as unsatisfactory and will need immediate attention.
The only person that can carry out this type of testing is a qualified electrician who will check all installations against the rules that are set in the UK.
