Domestic Electrical Testing
“There are around 9,000* fires in homes every year which are directly linked to faulty electrical wiring”
It’s essential to have your wiring tested periodically. There are around 9,000* fires in homes every year which are directly linked to faulty electrical wiring – that’s a lot of damage and distress that could have been avoided with some simple preventative measures. Having your wiring tested will prove that your home is safe and give you peace of mind.
In addition, if you’re planning on selling or letting your home, you will need an Energy Performance Certificate (ECP) in accordance with EU law, which will analyse the energy efficiency of your home and suggest improvements where necessary.
It’s worth noting that some insurance companies will not offer cover until your home has been tested. Increasingly insurance companies are becoming aware of the electrical regulations and are adjusting their policies to suit.
