A Price Guide and Information Sheet on Information Sheet on Testing and Inspecting Electrics



information
Unless work is being undertaken on your electrical installation, there is no legal requirement to ever have your electrics tested. However the NICEIC which is the electrical contracting industry’s independent voluntary body, suggests we inspect and test our system every ten years and of course even if we knew this, the suggestion would still be almost universally ignored.

Faulty electrics will kill you faster than any other household “problem”, so lets get them checked……..well tomorrow will do won’t it!

Obviously not, if you are reading this, you have just becone a “Let’s do it today person”!

This article is intended to be short, the subject isn’t, so at this point we recommend you read our comprehensive article on electrics, particularly the page on testing which you can see by clicking
