Much like an MOT for cars, it is important that you ensure you carry out checks on the condition of the electrics in your home at regular intervals. This will help identify any faults or defects which could require improvement and will ensure the continued operation of the installation in a safe and effective manner.

There are two kinds of checks that can be carried out and
we recommend that you always employ a registered electrician to carry out such checks.

Here are the following checks we here at Exe-Spand can help perform:

Visual Inspection

A visual inspection is a basic check to identify any visible signs of defects, damage or deterioration. No circuit testing will be undertaken, so your electricity will likely remain on during the inspection.

The electrician will need to be given access to all of the rooms in your home. The report will typically take around 1 hour to complete depending on the size of the property. Notes will be taken by the electrician as part of the visual inspection and a Visual Inspection Report (VIR) will be issued to the homeowner at the end.

The Visual Inspection report will record a number of observations and recommendations and provide an overall summary of the condition of the installation.

Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)

An electrical installation condition report (EICR) identifies any damage, deterioration, defects and/or conditions that may give rise to danger along with observations for which improvement is recommended.

It is a more detailed report than a VIR and will involve the testing of various circuits which will require the turning off of the electrics at the main supply.

This allows the contractor to identify any possible hidden defects or issues that cannot be identified during a VIR.
