Do your home electrics need testing?
Over time electrical wiring can deteriorate and cause problems, this is why electrical regulations recommend everyone to have their electrics fully tested every 1-10 years depending on the type of building, property and its use.
Maximum periods allowed between Periodic Inspections:
- Industrial Installations – 3 years
- Buildings open to the public – 1 year
- External installations – 3 years
- Caravan Parks – 1 year
- Fire Alarms – 1 year
- Short Term Installations – 3 months
- Non-Rented Domestic Dwelling – 10 years
- Rented Domestic Dwelling – 3 years (Or change in tenancy)
A normal residential domestic dwelling not rented would be ten years maximum. These inspections should be noted and the dates written on your fuse board for a reference if you cant see any dates or documentation for your home the chances are it’s not been done!
Perhaps you have just moved into a property or looking to purchase one or even planning on renting or had some work carried out recently and you suspect poor workmanship or lack of certification this is a very good time to carry out a Periodic Electrical Inspection & Test.
Electrical Testing can also be done for peace of mind, insurance reasons, and fire risk dwellings i.e.: thatched cottages.
Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
Portable Appliance Testing is a routine check of all electrical appliances in your home or workplace.
It is a legal requirement for employers, landlords and residential care homes that all electrical equipment from simple battery–powered torches upwards, must be ‘safe, well–maintained and suitable for the purpose for which it is being used’.
The penalties for non–compliance can be severe: in certain cases, it may constitute unlimited fines and/or imprisonment should an incident occur.
