What is electrical testing?
There are a number of electrical tests that can be carried out, and they are all done for different reasons and buildings. Every home and business premises should have regular inspections and tests to ensure that the electrical wiring and appliances are safe for people to use.
Full periodic inspection and testing is a thorough test that should be done at least every 5-10 years. You may also need to have your electrical installation fully inspected for insurance purposes and health and safety reasons. If you are a landlord you should get your property tested during this timeframe but also every time there are new tenants in your property.
Other tests include a home buyer’s visual inspection that gives peace of mind to people looking to buy a property, and PAT (Portable Appliance) testing which helps to keep people safe when they use appliances in the workplace. If you’re looking for an electrician that does PAT testing, click here.
