Inspection & Testing

Intro into Domestic

Electrical installations can deteriorate over time and develop faults. That’s why AC Electrical is able to provide quality inspection & testing services, to customers of all sizes.

As NICEIC approved contractors, & City & Guild qualified, we check installations against the current BS7671 British Standard for wiring regulations.

If you need a more bespoke service or would like to discuss your needs & requirements, drop us a line and let us get everything sorted for you. We will be able to highlight any areas where dangerous situations exist and where improvements can be made.

How often is an Electrical Installation Condition Report required?

  • 10 years or change of occupancy for households, domestic dwellings.
  • 5 years for commercial sectors (offices, shops, hospitals, schools).
  • 3 years for industrial sectors
  • 1 year for any special locations such as swimming pools, petrol stations, medical locations.

Other circumstances when an electrical installation condition report should be carried out are:

When a premises is being prepared for letting purposes.
Before the sale of a property or when purchasing a previously occupied property.

PAT Testing

PAT, or Portable Appliance Testing, is a routine inspection conducted on electrical appliances and equipment.
This test ensures that electrical appliances are safe to use, thus minimizing if not entirely preventing accidents and injuries.

PAT involves carrying out visual inspections on appliances and equipment to identify visible signs of damage.  Electrical testing uses the calibrated testing equipment to confirm earth resistance, earth continuity, and insulation resistance tests, as well as polarity and safety-switch checks. Identifying potential electrical faults with appliances and equipment.

Portable Appliance Testing is one of the most efficient and trusted methods of checking the safety of electrical appliances and equipment.
