There are many types of electrical inspection services, and it can often be difficult to understand exactly what level of electrical testing you need. At First Strike Electrical we are on hand to guide you, and provide the advice that you need.

Why get an electrical inspection?

Electrical inspections ensure that your business’s or home wiring and other electrical components and appliances are safe, and in good working order. The main aim of an electrical test and inspection is to make sure that wiring and electrical components do not pose a hazard to yourself, family, residents or employees.

What do they involve?

Typically, a comprehensive electrical inspection conducted on a property or commercial building involves:

  • Determining any electrical hazards
  • Checking the wiring: is it uncovered and permanent? Is there any exposed or outdated wiring?
  • Checking and testing safety switches
  • Testing power points and lighting, as well as examining the feeder pillar or fuse box
  • Evaluating the level of electrical service
  • Assessing any home DIY wiring
  • Noting the locations of smoke alarms and testing them
  • Checking electrical items and appliances, making sure they're compliant

When should you get an electrical inspection?

Although it is important to get your business or property regularly inspected and tested by reliable and experienced electricians as part of general electrical maintenance; there are several key moments when electrical inspection and testing is needed most.

These are:

  • Before you commit to buying a house
  • If your house is old and you have any concerns
  • In preparation for, or after bad weather or a major storm
  • If you rent your property, report any electrical issues to your estate/ letting agent or landlord immediately
  • If you’re a landlord or letting agent, it is a legal requirement that electrical issues and concerns are considered a top priority. You must ensure that electrical fittings and installations are properly maintained and kept in safe working order
