EICRs in Redhill from £125

    The importance of EICRs near Merstham

    One of the main causes of electrical fires in homes and commercial premises in Merstham, Redhill, or Earlswood, is faulty wiring. Over time all wiring becomes damaged due to wear and tear and age. An EICR is the document that is issued following an in-depth inspection and test to check the condition of the electrical system. This includes all the electrical outlets, wiring, switches, and sockets. It will check their condition against the national safety standard. Just like an MOT for a car, it will check that everything is running safely and as it should.

    All EICRs must be carried out by professional electricians. Nova Electrical can provide electrical safety surveys in all types of premises including owner-occupied homes, rental properties, commercial offices, shops, hotels, schools, restaurants, leisure centres, and other locations.

    If there are any problems with the system, they will be given a code.

    • C1 or code 1 means that danger is present and risk of injury is likely, so immediate action is required. We will always make any C1 issues safe immediately. An example of a C1 problem would be accessible live conductors due to damage, or incorrect polarity.
    • C2: This means that any issue is potentially dangerous and remedial action is required urgently.
    • C3: This means that improvement is recommended and something has been identified that does not meet current recommendations.

    Codes C1 and C2 means the report will be deemed unsatisfactory. These issues must be rectified in order to show compliance.

    RH1 commercial condition reports

    EICRs involve testing the safety of the whole electrical installation. Commercial EICRs are required in Redhill in order to demonstrate compliance with laws including the Electricity at Work Regulations and the Health and Safety At Work Act. The frequency of your EICR or fixed wire test will depend on:

    • The type of installation
    • How often it is used
    • The external influences or environment to which the electrical installation is exposed

    For commercial businesses, an EICR will be required at least every five years. However, more high-risk environment may require testing every three years, or sooner, depending on the advice of your electrician. For example, caravans, theatres, and places of entertainment, or industrial units require EICRs every three years and caravans and swimming pools require yearly testing.
    Our electricians will check that the fuse board is safe and compliant with current regulations, that everything is correctly earthed to prevent electric shocks, and that all wiring in sockets, lights, and switches, are installed correctly.
