Electrical Inspection & Testing
All electrical installations deteriorate with age and use. They should therefore be inspected and tested at appropriate intervals to check whether they are in a satisfactory condition for continued service. Such safety checks are commonly referred to as 'Periodic Inspection and Testing'. Hertz Electrical Contractors provide electrical testing in Warwickshire, as an approved NICEIC electrical tester.
A Periodic Inspection will:
Reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded.
Find any potential electric shock risks and fire hazards.
Identify any defective electrical work.
Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding.
Tests are also carried out on wiring and fixed electrical equipment to check that they are safe for use. A schedule of circuits is also provided, which is invaluable for a property, providing peace of mind.
