    PIRs and electrical testing near Salfords

    The main form of electrical test is called an Electrical Installation Condition Report or EICR. Previously known as a Periodic Inspection Report or PIR, this report is produced when periodic electrical testing and inspection is carried out on a building or property. If you need an EICR in Salfords, Earlswood, or Horley, Nova Electrical can help.

    We can complete all types of electrical tests. These tests are sometimes called:

    • Commercial EICRs
    • Domestic EICRs
    • Periodic Inspection Reports
    • Fixed wire testing
    • Commercial condition reports
    • Condition reports electrical
    • PAT testing
    • Landlord Electrical Reports
    • House Buyer Electrical Reports

    Much like an MOT of a car, it is important to check the condition of your electrical installation at regular intervals. It is recommended that owner-occupied domestic properties are checked every 10 years and businesses every five years or with each change of tenancy. We can complete EICRs on properties of all sizes and descriptions, including factories, warehouses, and offices. EICRs need to be carried out more frequently than every five years for certain premises, including hotels and restaurants and our electricians will be able to advise you.

    Do I need an electrical safety test if I am buying a home in Horley?

    We recommend an EICR before buying a new home in Horley. Research by Electrical Safety First found that just over a third of property buyers check out the electrical installation in any detail. Many believed these were included in a standard home survey. Over a third then went on to discover electrical problems after the purchase had been completed. Issues like rewiring can be very costly and inconvenient so it is important to employ an electrician to complete an electrical survey to give an overview of the electrical system.

    Horley landlord electrical surveys

    Landlords are legally required to ensure the electrical installation of any rental property are safe when tenants move in and are kept in safe, working condition throughout the tenancy. New regulations came into force in 2020 that all rented properties need their electrics inspected and tested every five years and more often if the most recent inspection states that it requires it. There must also be an EICR with each change of tenancy to ensure nothing has been damaged during the previous occupancy. It is essential that a qualified electrician complete the test and any subsequent remedial work. Local authorities can impose large financial penalties for non-compliance.
