All electrical installations become worn over time and can become unsafe and dangerous as a result. Due to this reason, they should be inspected periodically, checking for unsafe or unsatisfactory conditions.
At MacLaren, we carry out up to date electrical inspections. Upon completion of an electrical inspection, an Electrical Condition Report (EICR) is issued to the property owner by Maclaren Electrical Services Ltd.
What does a periodic inspection involve?
At MES, we pride ourselves on providing up to date and professional electrical inspections. When conducting our tests, we ensure that all electrical circuits and equipment are not under the stress of any overloads. We also look for any areas where earthing or bonding is not present. By checking for these hazards, we can identify any potential shock and fire hazards. Furthermore, we can detect any defective electrical installations and test that equipment is safe. We can also provide a schedule of circuits. We aim to keep you, and anyone else on your property safe, by reducing the risk of injury or electrical fire at home or in your office.

How often should an inspection be performed?
It is important that electrical inspections are carried out periodically. At Maclaren Electrical Services Ltd, we recommend that the following periodicity should be maintained:
- 10 years for an owner-occupied home.
- 5 years for a rented home.
- 3 years for a caravan
- 1 year for a swimming pool.
By conducting these tests regularly, you can rest assured that you will not be faced with electrical fires or injuries.
Are there any events which should trigger an electrical inspection?
Yes, there are events which should trigger electrical inspections. Typically, these are:
- When a property is being prepared for letting.
- Before selling a property or buying a previously-occupied property.
This means that future tenants and home owners can live happily and safely in your property.
