Need an electrical contractor in Wigan?

A bad electrician will cost you double for the same work. Or worse, more than double when:

  • The work needs redoing
  • And, if made worse, more electrical work needs doing

Electrical Safety Certificates
in wigan

What is an electrical safety certificate?

A certified electrician provides an electrical safety certificate. It attests that the circuitry in your property is working and safe.

An electrical safety certificate is also known as an ‘electrical installation condition report’ or EICR for short.

What’s involved in an electrical safety inspection?

A proper electrical safety check will:

  • Detect critical safety risks before they cause a disaster.
  • Uncover poor electrical work before it becomes a problem.
  • Show if your property’s circuitry is overloaded.
  • Ensure earthing and bonding measures are good enough.
  • Measure the extent of damage and wear and tear.

Do I need an electrical safety certificate or condition report?

Renting out a property in Wigan? An electrical safety certificate is not a legal requirement. But the safety of your tenants is your legal obligation when it comes down to the electrical work.

If you don’t know whether your home is safe, you could be putting lives at risk.

The legal penalties reflect that in kind.

How long does an electrical safety certificate last?

An electrical safety certificate is valid for 5 years or until there’s a change in tenancy – whichever comes first.

PAT Testing
in wigan

What is a PAT test?

With PAT testing, a certified electrician inspects certain electrical appliances and certified their safety.

The electrician will then issue the appliance a pass or fail.

Why do I need a PAT test?

A PAT test eliminates the risk of poor or faulty electrical appliances. In England, PAT testing is not a legal requirement.

But you must, by law, protect the safety of your tenants and employees.

You could face legal penalties if a faulty appliance or equipment causes harm to your tenants or employees.

What is involved in PAT testing?

A PAT testing electrician will give each appliance a visual inspection and, depending on the electrical class of the appliance, an inspection that goes into more depth.

Once testing is complete, your electrician will issue a pass or fail sticker to the appliance

  • Tests the electrical circuitry in a property

  • Monitors electrical risks and faults

Why do I need electrical maintenance?
