What is PAT testing and which parties require it?
Portable Appliance Testing, or PAT, is a process used to test any movable electrical appliance that can be connected or disconnected from an electrical source. Ensuring that electrical equipment is in good working order is important to prevent accidents and injuries. Therefore, if you are a business owner, landlord, equipment user, or facility manager, it is recommended to have PAT testing performed regularly.
What are the signs that a property may need a rewiring?
If you have an older property that has not been tested in a while, it is a good idea to have a periodic inspection conducted. Some signs that a rewiring may be necessary include minor shocks when using switches and sockets, frequently tripping fuses, or visible damage or wear on the electrical cables. If you experience any of these issues, it is important to contact a qualified electrician or consider our electrician services for further evaluation.
What is an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) and who requires one?
As a landlord, it is a legal requirement to have an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) completed at your rental property every 5 years or after a change of occupancy. This is to ensure that the electrical installation meets the current standards of BS7671 and is safe for use. Additionally, if you are experiencing problems with your electrical installation or are having tripping issues, an EICR can provide insight into the condition of the cabling within your property and help identify any potential issues.
