What is an Electrical Inspection?

An electrical inspection is a process of inspecting and testing the electrical installations within a property. Upon completion, you are presented with an electrical installation condition report (EICR). The electrician will visually inspect the electrics and discover how many fuse boards and circuits there are before performing a series of tests to identify:

  • Any missing or inadequate earth bonding on water and gas main supplies.
  • Any missing or inadequate safety devices that should be present on all electrical circuits.
  • Any deviations from the current electrical standards.
  • Whether there are any RCD’s that are not working correctly.
  • Whether there is any defective electrical work within the electrical installations.
  • Any damaged or deteriorated electrical installations such as loose or damaged cables and sockets.
  • Any health and safety risks such as shock damage or fire hazards.
  • How old the electrical installations are, to see if rewiring needs to take place.

Once you’ve been presented with the electrical installation condition report on completion of the electrical inspection Hounslow service, you could be presented with a grade on this report. The grades are as follows:

  • C1 – The electrical installations pose immediate danger risks; therefore, remedial works will need to be performed immediately before continued use of the electrical systems.
  • C2 – The electrical installations have a high electrical risk and remedial works will need to be completed as soon as possible within an allotted time frame.
  • C3 – Remedial works are recommended to improve the electrical installations, but you can still pass the electrical inspection with this grade.

If any of these grades are present on your report, Lola Electrical engineers are happy to offer you a free no-obligation quote for all remedial works that are needed.
