Every electrical installation deteriorates with age and use. It is important for the person responsible for the maintenance of the installation, device or appliance to be sure that the safety of users is not put at risk, and that the installation continues to be in a safe and serviceable condition.

A Periodic Inspection is an inspection on the condition of an existing electrical installation, to identify any deficiencies against the national safety standard for electrical installations.

A periodic inspection will: 

  • Reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment is overloaded
  • Find any potential electrical shock risks and fire hazards in your electrical installation
  • Identify any defective DIY electrical work
  • Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding
  • Tests are also carried out on wiring and associated fixed electrical equipment to check that it is safe
  • A schedule of circuits will also be provided, which is invaluable for a property

It is recommended that periodic inspection and testing is carried out at least every:

  • 10 years for a domestic installation
  • 5 years for a commercial installation

Other instances when a periodic inspection should be carried out are:

  • When a property is being prepared to be let
  • Prior to selling a property or when buying a previously occupied property
  • When there is reason to believe that damage has been caused by a fire or flood for example

What our customers are saying

Really pleased with Jon, excellent result even though positions of the sockets were quite tricky. I would not hesitate to recommend Jon to anyone and I am quite happy to use his services again for future reference. Thanks!

Jon was absolutely fantastic. Able to attend the property within 48 hours (whereas other electricians weren't able to attend until Mid-April) and on top of this also provided the most competitive quote. Jon was friendly, professional and courteous and did not try to sell us work that didn't need to be done (in fact he told us that the electrics were in excellent condition on a house we were buying and that no further work is needed). I would not hesitate to recommend Jon to anyone.
