The Importance of an EICR

This blog post explains all you need to know about EICRs (electrical installation condition report). We have created a guide explaining the importance of an EICR, as well as how you can benefit from it! Hopefully, reading this blog answers all of your questions, but feel free to check out our contact details below if not!

What is an EICR?

An EICR inspects your electrical system, checking to see if the installation is satisfactory or not. During the inspection, a few things are checked, including the condition, deterioration and any damage that may have occurred. To sum it up, EICRs are used to check the safety of your electrical system.

Why is it important to get an EICR?

As a property owner, it is important for you to ensure that your premises meets all necessary regulations, making it a safe space for you and your family and if you own a businesses your customers and staff. Electrical safety is vital, as the risks associated with a poor installation can be deadly, so it is key that you keep everything running safely and legally.

How often do you need an EICR?

The main thing to remember is that EICRs need to be carried out periodically, but there is not a set time to wait before your next one. Ideally, it should not exceed five years, but it should be much sooner if you have reason to suspect an issue in your property. Luckily, our team are qualified to carry out your checks, so we are always on hand to help.
