Annual Inspection

While we have many items and systems checked and serviced like our heating boiler or intruder alarm system, we very rarely have a vital part of our home given an annual inspection.  The vital part I refer to is the wiring and fuse board/consumer board.

Over time the installation deteriorates, the insulation becomes brittle and often falls away from the copper within the cabling, this causes arcing and in trun may lead to a fire.

Having the electrics tested and inspected will give you piece of mind that your installation is up to current standards and is safe.

RECI recommend that the electrical installation should be tested and checked about every five years.  For more information from the RECI website about home safety check this link
