An EICR, (Electrical Installation Condition Report), is sometimes also referred to as a Landlord Electrical Safety Test or Fixed Wire Test. The report provides a summary of the condition of the electrics in your home and determines whether they comply with the current British Standard for electrical safety (BS 7671).
At Farthing Electrical Solihull, we have extensive electrical knowledge & the experience to deal with any of your electrical enquiries. We are an NICEIC registered company that specialises in residential Domestic properties, and are pleased to announce that we have recently passed the new 18th edition wiring regulations test!
The NICEIC inspect and regulate work carried out by electricians that are registered with the organisation. For an electrician to become a member, they have to be skilled and qualified in all types of electrical works and installation. Electricians will be carefully and regularly assessed to ensure that they are suitably qualified and meet the highest standards.
What is a Consumer Unit/ Fuse Board?
A consumer unit is the central point at which mains electricity enters the property and is then distributed into subsidiary circuits that provide all the power and lighting for your home.
Reasons you may need your Fuse Board Replacing:
Fuse Boards may need to be replaced for a number of reasons:
1) Where the existing unit does not meet current electrical regulations, especially in the case of there being no RCD protection
Electrical faults can occur at any time within your property. Whether it is a residential or commercial property, electrical faults can cause serious fire hazards and can lead to damage, injury and risk to life due to electrocution. Because of the high risks around electricity, strict rules have been brought into the buildings regulations under part P. The majority of existing properties have wiring which is not covered within these regulations, but should you decide to make significant alterations to your property, then the regulations will come into force. This is why you should always consult with and use a reputable certified electrical company who meet all the regulations to carry out any re-wiring of your home or property.
