Electrical Installation Condition Report Liverpool

All electrical installations will naturally deteriorate over time with age and use. Because of this, we offer Domestic Electrical Installation Condition Reports in Liverpool (EICR) to determine whether your installation is fit for continued use.  These checks are known as ‘periodic inspections’, and once completed, you will receive an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR).

Step-by-step Guide to an EICR

A periodic inspection will reveal any electrical circuits which might be overloaded as well as any potential shock risks and fire hazards, also identifying faulty electrical work and highlight any lack of earthing.

1

Tests are carried out on wiring and any fixed electrical equipment. Electricals should be inspected every five years for an occupied home. You should also have electrics tested before letting a property, or before buying or selling a previously owned home.

2

The inspection will verify the condition of switches, sockets and light fittings. Examples of items that might need replacing include older rough-pin plugs, cables with fabric coating hanging from ceiling roses to light fittings, round light switches, black switches and sockets mounted in skirting boards.

3

We will also check the condition and type of wiring system. For example, cables coated in black rubber, fabric or lead will need replacing with modern PVC cables. We will test sockets used for supplying outdoor electrical equipment to make sure that a suitable residual current device protects them.

4

Our team will issue an EICR, which identifies any deterioration, defects or dangerous conditions. Urgent action will have to be taken if the overall condition is declared ‘unsatisfactory’. If this is the case we will issue a free quotation along with your report for any remedial works needed.

What is an EICR

An Electrical Installation Condition Report is completed following a professional assessment of the full installation of a property.  This includes the consumer unit, wiring, switches and sockets.  Once an assessment has taken place, you receive a full report showing any works that are required or recommended to bring the property up to the latest edition of the Wiring Regulations (BS 7671) and how to get a satisfactory certificate if your property has come back as unsatisfactory.
