The companies and homeowners who go on and implement our recommendations have seen their bills dramatically reduced even covering the costs of their annual maintenance.
People often refer to fixed wire testing as an Electrical Installation Condition Report or a Periodic Inspection Report
Before 2012 fixed wire testing generally went by the name of a periodic inspection until the introduction 17th edition wiring regulations (BS 7671) since the 17th edition we now refer to this as an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), Fixed Wiring Testing is another name for the type of electrical testing involved in the Electrical Installation Condition Report.
The energy smart group carry out hundreds of these inspections and tests on existing electrical installations each year and we are constantly asked if this is important or how often it needs doing.

Why bother with electrical testing?
Electrical safety should be a must for any person really. Whether you’re a homeowner or a business owner, the risk is just as great and it is paramount that systems are maintained appropriately to safeguard households, tenants, members of staff and premises.
The reason for carrying out electrical condition reports (EICR) of electrical installations is to determine the current condition of electrical systems in terms of design and safety. This needs doing to ensure your compliance with current electrical wiring regulations – by identifying failures or defects and making appropriate recommendations via a periodic inspection report.
Take ownership of your electrical testing
By having a periodic inspection or Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) carried out you identify early any deficiencies in your electrical systems can be identified and dealt with immediately, meaning that a problem does not persist undetected which may eventually result in fire or injury.
The EICR gives us a chance to evaluate not only the deterioration of the installation but also its ensure your meeting the safety legislation.
If regular inspection and testing are neglected – those responsible may be prosecuted under health and safety law, the lives of workforce/tenants are put at unnecessary risk, and insurance claims may be invalidated. The Regulations require regular inspection and testing to take place so that the installation can be maintained in a good and a safe condition. It is a requirement by law.
What Happens After The Inspection?
After we carry out the inspection and test on your electrical system we will produce an EICR which will state if the electrical installation is Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory – this decision will be based on the current electrical regulations BS7671:2011. We will record all faults and make you aware of the condition as we go along.
Please beware that if your installation is Unsatisfactory the PIR Report will list Observations and Recommendations on how to rectify the issues at this point we would normally provide a no obligation quotation for the repair work to be carried out. we take this seriously but we are not out to nit pick or create you any issues but we have to record what we see remember where not there to rectify simply identify any faults or issues.
