How does the service work?
Fixed wire testing is carried out to determine if an electrical installation is in a safe working condition and fit for continued use. This is done by testing the electrical wiring, circuits and anything connected to the electrical system throughout the premises.
It is a thorough inspection, and everything electrical will be tested for wear and tear, as well as more obvious visual damage. Our engineers and operatives are experts in spotting any potential hazards within your internal system. We check all areas of your system including the main incoming supply point through to sockets, light fittings and other wiring accessories by injecting test voltages. This shows the true functionality of cables and connections.
Once the EICR is complete, we will pass on a full report with every item tested listed. If there is a fault with anything, then it will be categorised as either a C1, C2, or a C3. A C1 failure is in need of immediate action since there is a real danger present. A C2 requires attention in the near future but is not immediate, and a C3 is a suggested improvement.
