Bison - giving you peace of mind
Do you know when the electrical installation – wall sockets, RCD units, wiring, etc - in your home was last tested and inspected?
Better solutions to your electrical needs
Electrical testing in the home is something many people neglect, but doing so could be dangerous, and sometimes even fatal.
Over time, electrical installations deteriorate so need assessing regularly, and every year Bison’s electrical engineers attend a large number of homes to remedy faults that could have been avoided if the electrical installation had been tested.
The maximum time between assessments as recommended by the Institute of Electrical Engineers is 5 years for residential accommodation, or every change of occupancy. That means if you’ve just bought a property, or have been in yours for some time, an electrical inspection is definitely due. Bison can quickly and efficiently test the electrical installation in your home, and provide you with an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) showing what, if anything, needs to be done to maintain electrical safety in your home, and compliancy with current regulations.
Your EICR will either be marked as satisfactory or unsatisfactory. If unsatisfactory, you will see one of three results:
C1 - Danger present – Risk of injury, immediate action required
C2 - Potentially dangerous – urgent action required,
FI - Further investigation required
C3 - A satisfactory report may show a C3 result. This means ‘Improvement recommended’ – your installation isn’t dangerous, but it’s not compliant with current regulations.
In each case, Bison will list the work that needs to be done to bring your electrical installation in line with current safety standards and regulations, and give you a quote for the work. You can then decide if, or when you would like it to be carried out.
Buying a new home?
If you’re thinking of buying a new home, it always pays to get an EICR done before the purchase. For a small cost you could unearth a problem that may cause you a lot of stress in the future. And, if you still love the property, any work that needs doing can usually be negotiated off the purchase price, so you won’t be out of pocket.
Failure to have your electrical installation tested can be dangerous. Electrical faults can lead to electric shock, fire, and the heartbreak that comes with them. Please don’t risk it!
