Inspections


Consider something for a moment; you have an MOT carried out on your car every year, your boiler serviced every year and so on. When was the last time you had your electrical wiring inspected?

Electrical wiring deteriorates with time and use, which can give rise to problems and potential safety hazards.

A wiring inspection, or Electrical Installation Condition Report to give it its full name, is like an MOT for your wiring and can help to identify issues before they become serious faults.

It's recommended that the electrical installation in a dwelling is inspected every 10 years at most, or when the property is sold.

At a typical cost of £100-150, depending on the size of the property, an inspection might sound like a costly exercise but when you consider that putting right a serious fault could cost several hundred pounds, an inspection that could well prevent that fault from developing starts to look like the cheaper option, to say nothing of the peace of mind you gain from knowing the electrical wiring in your home is safe.
