PAT Testing - Why Test and Inspect? 

For both domestic and commercial properties, there are laws in place to make sure that your electrics are tested and inspected at regular intervals – known as a PAT test. Testing identifies potential shock and fire risks. It also ensures that appliances have been properly fitted as well as checking for overloaded circuitry. 

How Often? 

electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk recommended that test and inspect every: 
10 years for an owner-occupied home 
5 years for a rented home 
3 years for a caravan 
1 year for a swimming pool 
At least every 5 years for a business. 
Electrics should also be tested and inspected if you are selling or letting a property. 
If you’ve lost the paperwork for your name brand electrical products, you can still register them online and get handy reminders for when they’re next due for inspection. 

Why Choose Us? 

Testing and inspection should always be carried out by a qualified electrician. You may be able to do some electrical work yourself – some wiring work can be relatively straightforward but you must work within the regulations set out in BS7671 - find the details here. Also, you ‘must meet the requirements of Part P of the Building Regulations’. If you don’t test and inspect your electrics by the regulations, you could be breaking the law and putting people’s lives at risk. 
Working with us, you can be sure that your electrics will be professionally tested and inspected and you’ll be fully compliant with the law. It’s also good to have the necessary paperwork to hand should you be subject to an external inspection – we provide this as part of the service.
