What is Electrical Testing2018-04-27T13:33:53+00:00

In our homes we use electricity and don’t even think about it, it’s a part of our day to day life. As a result, we sometimes forget how powerful and dangerous it can be.

All electrical installations deteriorate with age and use, they are altered and added to throughout the years.
Installations in older properties may not be designed for today’s living.
They should therefore be inspected and tested at regular intervals to check whether they are in a satisfactory condition for continued use.
This process may be referred to as periodic inspection and testing or an electrical condition report.
