One of the services we provide to customers, is a safe wiring and electrical safety inspection. Not only this, but we also urge those who have perhaps not had an inspection in a while, to have one carried out, and we want to make more and more people aware of the importance and how they can make your home a better place. Electrical safety inspections apply to just about anywhere with an electric supply, and the impact of these checks can be much greater than you realise.


Firstly, what is an electrical safety inspection?

It basically means having a fully qualified electrician carry out an assessment on your whole electrical system to ensure that it is working properly and safely and that the building is under no danger, risk or threat. It’s extremely important to have these safety checks in place as it prevents things from going wrong and solves any existing or imminent problems within your electrical system.


Why we have them

Before buying any property, it is compulsory to have a safe wiring and electrical safety inspection. Without, you are not permitted to move into the property as you can’t secure a safe working electrical system. Although it’s mandatory at this stage, the importance of actually getting regular checks is sometimes overlooked. Problems can occur at any time which is why we must remain one step ahead and seek professional help and advice if we have any concerns.


Common problems

Problems and faults within an electrical system can vary quite a lot, and as such the damage and outcomes can range from small and minor to big and severe. A lot of the time, these faults can also result in an increase to your electricity bill, and noticing this can be a key indicator that something’s not quite right and you should get it checked out. Other signs of electrical faults may include blowing the fuse, a light switch tripping, and power not working to full capacity.


Why electrical safety inspections are important

Problems within your electrical system can lead to potentially dangerous and serious outcomes, which is why we want to rule out any chance of that happening and stop things before they make too much of an impact. A lot of the time when people come to us for help, it’s because of an already existing problem, and something that’s already happened. An electrical safety inspection is able to get to the root before the issue becomes present and causes damage to the property. No matter how small you think the problem may be, we urge you to get it inspected by professionals, as electrical faults can even cause fires and put you and your home in danger.

Not only will electrical safety inspections fla up any problems and allow electricians to work on them, but they can also be a step in preventing any further issues in the future. An electrician will advise you on how to keep your home safe and avoid causing more problems with your electrics.
