Our representative will firstly note down details of the property, including the age and any history known, plus number of bedrooms and existence of any outbuildings using electricity. (These are also included in the check.)
The main fuse box will be examined and depending on the age and condition, may be dismantled for closer inspection. In this instance the electricity will have to be turned off for a short time to undertake the check but our representative will give warning before doing so.
A number of socket outlets and lighting circuits (normally no more than 20%) will be checked, and depending on age and condition, some may be dismantled for closer inspection. Some earth test readings will also be taken. Wiring to immersion heater will also be checked.
Wiring running to sheds, green houses and garage will also be checked for general condition. Details of the above will vary depending on age and fabric of the building and accessibility of certain items.
Please note that we will NOT check other electrician's work.
A free report will be issued to the homeowner with recommendations for improvements where necessary to bring installation up to current safety standards. If the customer requires it, a quotation can be offered without obligation for us to do this work.
