Reliable Electrical Testing And Inspections in Hepworth, West Yorkshire
Electrical fires are among the most common causes of property damage, and can strike at a moment’s notice. All it takes is a bit of faulty wiring (See PAT Testing), some damage to the electrical systems, and a spark is created – things can get ugly really fast. That is not said to scare you, but merely draw attention to the importance of electrical testing for residential properties in general.
By having a certified and NICEIC approved TRS Electrician come out to your residential or commercial property, you can have your electrical systems checked and certified to ensure that your property is safe, and within regulations.
Periodic Electrical Testing and Inspection will:
- Reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded.
- Find any potential electric shock risks and fire hazards.
- Identify any defective electrical work.
- Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding.
Tests are also carried out on wiring and fixed electrical equipment to check that they are safe. A schedule of circuits is also provided, which is invaluable for a property.
Who Should Be Having Electrical Testing Performed?
The short answer is – anyone who owns a property. This can be your own home, rental property, commercial property, or even schools and sport facilities. In fact, in many cases the law states that all workplaces must ensure safe and well maintained electrical systems.
In addition, as of 2020, many landlords may be required to maintain mandatory 5-year electrical inspections and certifications for all of their properties from private to student.
While keeping up to date on electrical system testing and regulations may not be the strictly enforced law as of yet across the UK; it is still a good idea to keep on top of.
No matter what type of property you own or manage as a landlord, the electrical system should always be in a safe working condition and fully tested. Testing simply guarantees safety, and TRS Electrical will provide an electrical certificate to prove it.
What Does Electrical Testing and Inspection Entail?
Electrical testing and inspection requires a professional electrician, who is certified to perform the testing, to come out to the residential or commercial property for examination. This will involve professionally examining and inspecting the electrical wiring, surge boxes, outlets, and electrical system as a whole.
Once the property has been deemed safe by a TRS electrician, they will issue a certificate of safety.
What Other Reasons Are There For Electrical Testing In A Property?
Besides the whole health and safety thing, electrical testing is a good idea for a multitude of other reasons as well. For example, it can help save you money. Faulty or incorrect wiring can be incredibly inefficient, and can lead to unnecessarily high electricity bills.
In addition, it can also help you avoid any unexpected delays when trying to sell or buy a home. If your electrical system testing is up to date, you don’t have to worry about waiting around for the electrical inspector to come and check out the property prior to buying or selling.
