Useful information

FREE PAT testing for landlords, insurance companies and letting agents.

PAT testing can also be done at the same time as a periodic inspection report. By doing the two together you will save time and money. PAT testing at the same time could locate any potential safety risks with any electrical appliances.

An electrical installation condition report will reveal if any circuits or electrical equipment are being overloaded, locate any potential electrical shock risks and fire hazards in an installation, identify any defective DIY electrical work, or highlight any lack of earthing or bonding. Tests are also carried out on wiring and associated fixed electrical equipment to check that it is electrically safe.
