What does the Electrical Installation Condition Report — EICR Mean?
With the passage of time, electrical installations weaken and become more of a risk for your home and everyone living in it. Therefore, it is necessary that their proper functioning is assessed at regular intervals so that the necessary repairs and replacements can be carried out. These safety assessments are known as “periodic inspections and testing”. And once completed, you will be issued an Electrical Installation Condition Report — EICR certifying that the electrical installations in your home are in proper working order.
Prime Electrics has been conducting periodic tests for long enough to know all the critical areas that need to be tested. Under our supervisions a successful test will uncover:-
- Any circuits or equipment’s that are dangerously overloaded.
- Potential risks of electrical shocks and fires.
- Faulty electrical work (if any)
- If there is an absence of any earthing or bonding were needed.
It is our recommendation that you get your home checked for electrical safety every 10 years if it is an owner occupied home or every 5 years if it is a rented home. If you live in a caravan then you should get the periodic inspection done every 3 years. If you live in a home that has swimming pool, it will require an individual Electrical Installation Condition Report — EICR which will be valid for only one year.
Considering the sensitive nature of periodic inspections, Prime Electrics has employed only certified and properly trained staff to inspect the electrical condition of your home. Once our staff has explored all the necessary areas of your home you will be assigned Electrical Installation Condition Report — EICR detailing their complete findings. You can also trust any reports presented to you, by landlord for example, which were made by Prime Electrics because our reports are famous for portraying the true condition of your home.
