Reliable electrical system testing in Southampton and surrounding areas.
Does your property need an EICR?
As electrical installation specialists in Southampton, we also carry out official EICR surveys. Our fully qualified electricians have the tools and knowledge to carry out full Electrical Installation Condition Reports for both residential and commercial premises in Southampton and surrounding areas.
What is an EICR?
An EICR is a formal document produced after a qualified electrician has evaluated the electrical installations within a property.
Only electricians with JIB or NECEIC registration who have taken a course covering inspection and testing hold authorisation to carry out Electrical Installation Condition Reports. A good working knowledge of electrical installations is essential and Euro-Lec (Southern) Ltd has many years of experience in this area.
Moreover, a copy of the final EICR report is yours to keep. We will also keep this on record in case you need another copy at a later date.
When would an EICR be required?
There are a number of situations where you may need an Electrical Installation Condition Report. For instance before investing in a new property, when signing contracts for rental properties, or to add value to properties for sale.
We suggest that domestic homes have the electrical installations checked every 10 years to ensure there is no deterioration in the wiring and outlets. Rented properties should be tested every 5 years. Commercial properties have a recommendation of every 5 years and industrial buildings every 3 years. However, an EICR can be carried out as often as the property owner would like.
When is a new EICR recommended?
Often when rental properties change occupancy, an EICR is done to give new residents peace of mind. A new Electrical Installation Condition Report is also highly recommended when a building has experienced damage due to vandalism, fire or other damage.
We repair water leaks, toilet cisterns, water heaters, shower valves and blocked pipes.
Electric showers, gravity fed showers, power showers and shower enclosure installation.
Additional radiators, bathroom towel warmers, thermostatic valves, balancing and maintenance.
