  • What is an EICR?
    An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is a detailed inspection and assessment of the electrical installations within a property. It is typically carried out by a qualified electrician or electrical contractor. During an EICR, the electrician examines the electrical wiring, circuits, sockets, switches, distribution boards, and other fixed electrical components to assess their condition and safety. They check for any signs of wear and tear, damage, or deterioration that could present a risk of electrical shock or fire. The main objectives of an EICR are: Identifying Defects: The electrician looks for any defects or non-compliance with electrical safety standards, such as loose connections, damaged cables, or outdated wiring. Assessing Safety: The inspection evaluates the safety of the electrical installations and determines whether they meet current regulations and standards. Highlighting Improvements: The report may recommend improvements or upgrades to enhance the safety and efficiency of the electrical system. Issuing Certification: If the electrical installations are deemed safe and compliant, the electrician will issue an EICR certificate. If any issues are identified, they will be recorded in the report along with recommendations for remedial action. EICRs are essential for ensuring the safety of occupants in residential, commercial, and industrial properties. They are often required by landlords, property managers, insurance companies, and regulatory authorities to demonstrate compliance with electrical safety regulations and standards.
  • Do I need to use RCD protection on any of my circuits?
    Under BS7671 IEE Wiring Regulations all circuits are recommended to be protected by a 30mA RCD in most domestic situations. Please contact us if you require any further information.
  • What is an RCD and what are the benefits?
    An RCD is a Residual Current Device. It’s designed to protect against electrocution and electrical fires by cutting off the supply of power when it senses a leakage of electrical current from a circuit. An RCD monitors electric currents in circuits or individual items and will switch off the electricity automatically if there is a problem. For example, if you cut through a cable with a power tool, the power switches off, eliminating the chance of injury from electrocution. RCDs also offer protection against electrical fires.
  • Do you do Fire Alarms?
    We can do all aspects of Fire Alarm Systems including design, supply, install, test, commission and maintenance.
  • What is a Fire Alarm System?
    A Fire Alarm System is a number of devices that work together to warn the occupants of a building that carbon monoxide, fire and smoke are present and to evacuate immediately. The alarm system will typically combine auditory and visual warnings to bring attention to the emergency.
  • How often does my alarm need to be checked?
    Two visits per year is the recommended minimum to comply with BS-5839 Part 1. During the visit, your engineer will check the detection, sounders, batteries and more.
  • Is the Fire Alarm test disruptive?
    This will depend on the nature of your business and the location of your fire detection and alarm system. However, our engineers are conscientious and can adapt their practices to accommodate many issues, including sound issues.
  • How often do I need to test my Fire Alarm System?
    You should test your fire alarm once a week at a set time. Before you test your alarm, you must warn people inside the building that this is a regular test and that no evacuation is required. You must also advise your Alarm Receiving Centre that you are about to initiate the test so they do not alert the Emergency Services.
  • Do I need to perform a Fire Drill?
    You must perform one fire drill per year to comply with UK law. You must also record the results of the drill to inform your fire safety and evacuation plan.
