Electrical condition reports (domestic/commercial)
Our electricians will carry out a visual inspection and a series of tests, designed to ensure both the functionality and safety of an electrical system and also its compliance with the relevant wiring regulation. This includes testing the condition of the cables and the insulation covering them, and checking the consumer unit, all socket outlets, switches and connections. A certificate is issued on completion, detailing the results and a list of recommendations including the date the next inspection should be scheduled for.

Consumer unit changes

A full test and inspection on the electrical system is also included.
Safety checks or visual condition report
A visual condition report or safety check is a visual inspection of the electrical installation, not including any testing. The inspection is not likely to find hidden damage to equipment (for example, damage to cables and joints). Usually, a visual inspection report is more suitable for an installation that has been tested in the last couple of years, and the results were reported (on an electrical installation certificate or an Electrical condition report) as being satisfactory.
