Electrical testing

We come to your home to carry out electrical testing to make sure that the electrics in your home are safe. This is part of the important work we do to keep you safe in your home.

It’s so important that we are required by law to do it.

We will let you know in advance when your electrical testing appointment is, and we’ll also send you a text reminder before we visit. It’s really important that you are at home to let us in to do this.

While doing the testing, we may spot things that need fixing like a socket or light fitting. If we spot anything that could be dangerous, we will fix it straight away. If we spot something that needs fixing but is not dangerous, we will try and fix that while we do the test. If we run out of time we will arrange another appointment to come back.

Electricity: The dos and dont’s


Don’t:

  • Do it yourself! DIY wiring can lead to electrical parts overheating, which can cause electric shocks, fires and death.
  • Overload sockets. Plugging too many devices into one socket and using multiple extension leads can lead to overheating and cause fires.

Do:

  • Allow electrical testing to take place. Regular checks are the best way to make sure electrical installations are safe and to spot potential problems before they become a danger.
  • Buy reputable electrical goods. Cheaper, unofficial electrical products, such as phone chargers, may not meet safety regulations and could cause a fire.
