Over time, electrical installations deteriorate due to their age and use. As a result, it is important for them to be inspected and tested at regular intervals.

At AAES Electrical, we are able to carry out electrical inspections and testing in Milton Keynes for an extremely competitive price.

Electrical Inspections & Testing

Experts recommend that electrical installations are inspected and tested every 10 years in owner-occupied homes, and every five years in rented properties.

Furthermore, a periodic inspection should be undertaken when a property is being prepared for letting, before the sale of a property or when buying a previously-occupied property.

Periodic Inspections

During a periodic inspection, a fully trained and qualified electrical engineer will carry out the following steps:

  • Reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded
  • Find any potential electric shock risks/fire hazards
  • Identify any defective electrical work
  • Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding

In addition, the electrical engineer will also carry out tests on any wiring and electrical equipment in the property to ensure they are in safe, working order.

Electrical Installation Condition Report

Upon completion of the inspection and testing, our electrical engineer will issue an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR). This document highlights any observations such as damage, deterioration, defects and dangerous conditions.

Such dangerous conditions typically include non-compliances with BS 7671 – Requirements for Electrical Installations (IEE Wiring Regulations).

Should the electrical engineer find anything dangerous (or potentially dangerous) in your property, they will declare it “unsatisfactory”. They will then guide you through the best course of action to take next.

At AAES Electrical, each of our electrical engineers has years of experience in the trade and they strive on the high quality of their workmanship.
