An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is the most common type of electrical test. It should be performed by a competent electrician and will consist of a visual inspection, looking at the consumer unit, plugs, light fittings, switches, earthing and bonding and for other signs of wear and tear and visible signs of burning or scorching. The electrician will then complete dead and live testing. Typically, an EICR takes around three to four hours to complete, depending on the size of the property and the number of circuits that require testing.
We come highly recommended and as members of TrustMark, all work comes with a six-year warranty. Speak to one of our electricians now on 020 8265 2061.
EIC inspections in Gosport (PO12): What will it tell me?
An EICR, sometimes called a fixed wire test, will offer a full summary of the condition of your property’s electrics to check they are compliant with current British Standards for electrical safety (BS 7671). The report that you are issued after the test will record any observations and make necessary recommendations.
The classifications codes are as follows:
- C3: This means that improvements are recommended but any issue is not considered to be an immediate or potential source of danger.
- C2: This is an issue that is not considered to be immediately dangerous at the time of inspection but could be a fault that could cause issues in the future, so urgent remedial work us required.
- C3: This indicates that immediate danger is present, so swift remedial action is required to make the installation safe. An example of this would be an accessible live conductor.
If you have any C1 or C2 codes, then the report will be considered unsatisfactory and you must get these defects corrected to demonstrate compliance. Read our blog: Upgrading your electrics: What every homeowner should know.
