Electrical testing is crucial to ensure that your whole electrical system is consistent and safe. It also enhances the quality of your electrics and prolongs the general lifespan of them. So, we thought we would tell you a few reasons why it’s important to have electrical testing within your property…


It ensures all electrics and appliances are properly installed 

Not only will we conduct an electrical test upon installation of any electrics in your property, but we will also test pre-existing electrics to ensure that they have been installed properly and correctly. If any part of your electrical system isn’t installed correctly, this can be very risky and potentially cause danger, as well as prevent the system from working properly. With a test, it will show if any part of the system is failing or causing strain on the rest of it.


Regular tests will benefit you long term

On average, it is recommended to have an electrical safety test around once every five years. Of course, you can have them more frequently if you wish or feel that it is necessary. However, with electrical tests every five years, this will keep an eye on the system and ensure that everything is working as it should, and it will flag up any faults or failures should there be any. As a result of doing this, you reduce the risk of more severe damage further down the line. Therefore, this will keep your property safer, improve the quality of your electrical system, and prevent you from having to pay the price of a big repair later on.


It improves circuit flow 

One of the most common faults in electrics, is failure with the circuit flow. Eventually, this can trip and cut off power completely, and quite often cause damage to the system. With electrical testing, problems within the circuit will be flagged up and as a result can be fixed so that the circuit flow runs better and you have a more efficient and better quality electrical system. 


It reduces the risk of fire 

One of the biggest dangers with faulty electrics, is that they can be the cause of fires. Not only is this incredibly dangerous, whether the property in question is your own home or a commercial building, but it causes absolute havoc and lots of serious damage. Electrical testing can prevent this from happening, as it spots any problems in their tracks and stops them from developing into anything bigger and getting out of hand.
