Everything About an EICR Birmingham

It’s something we all dread. Looking for a reliable and trustworthy electrician to conduct our Electrican Safety Certificate can be tiring, stressful, and sometimes still ineffective.

What Should You Know About ElCR Certificates?

If you're in charge of a building or a rental property in Birmingham, you've probably heard the term Electrical Safety Certificate, or Electrical Installation Condition Report, or EICR for short.

Although, do you know exactly what this term mean?

We've put together everything you need to know, in order to assist you learn more about EICR and why it's so important for your and your tenants' safety.

Let's get into it!

What Does an EICR Birmingham Stand For?

EICR is the abbreviation for Electrical Installation Condition Report. Previously, it was known as Fixed Wire Testing.

An EICR is a test performed by a skilled electrician to guarantee that your electrical installations are safe and will not pose any fire hazards or electric shocks.

Hard Wire Testing, Periodic Inspection, and Electrical Safety Certificate are all terms used to describe EICR Birmingham examinations.

Because installation components such as light fittings, fuse boxes, and plug sockets are 'hard wired' into the building and cannot be easily relocated, EICR Brimingham examinations are commonly referred to as 'Hard Wire Testing.'

Should I Hire a Professional?

If you hire a professional to inspect your property and conduct your Electrical Safety Certificate, you can rest assured that all of your electrical appliances are safe to use!

What Exactly Do You Mean When You Say "Electrical Installations"?

All of the fixed electrical equipment that is supplied through the electricity metre is referred to as an electrical installation.

An electric installation consists of the following components:

  • All fuses, circuit breakers, and, preferably, residual current devices are included in the consumer unit (fusebox or distribution boards - RCDs).
  • Cabling, including that which is concealed in walls and ceilings.
  • Adornments (such as sockets, switches and light fittings).

Is an EICR - Electrical Safety Certificate Required For My Property?

It depends on the purpose of the EICR Birmingham examination. Some, but not all, buildings are required to have EICRs.

Electrical Installation Condition Report for Commercial Property Owners

An EICR Birmingham Service for a business structure such as a shop, factory, or office is not required by law. Although, it is advised to consduct one. It may be the best approach to ensure that your building's permanent electrical equipment is safe.


Electrical Installation Condition Report for Landlords of Residential Properties

In England, EICR Inspections are needed by law for rental houses and HMOs in order to safeguard renters and their belongings.

What Is The purpose of an Electrical Safety Certificate?

If you operate a business, an office, or a rental property, you have an obligation to protect the safety of your workers, customers, and renters.

Electrical installations that are old, damaged, or malfunctioning can produce electric shocks as well as a fire hazard.

Faulty wiring and cabling cause 18% of household fires in England, therefore it's critical to ensure sure all electrical systems are safe to use.

An EICR Birmingham is the most thorough method of ensuring the safety of your installations.

How Long Does It Take To Complete an EICR?

It is debatable. The length of time it takes to complete an EICR Birmingham depends on the size of the building and the number of circuits that need to be tested.

Any severe flaws discovered by the electrical engineer must be addressed, which might take time.

How Often Should I Obtain an EICR?

The testing intervals are determined by the structure.

Because certain structures are more vulnerable to risk than others, an Electrical Safety Certificate may be required more regularly.

Swimming pools, for example, require an EICR Birminghamevery year, whereas workplaces and schools only require one every five years.

Depending on the climate and the general state of the electrical installation, the electrical engineer performing the testing will define how often the testing intervals should be.

In April 2021, the legislation governing electrical checks for landlords were modified.

If you live in England, each tenancy agreement must include a valid EICR Certificate that must be updated every five years.

If I Live in a Domestic Property, Do I Need an EICR Birmingham?

In the same manner that a rental property requires an EICR Birmingham, an EICR is not a legal necessity. It is, however, your job as a homeowner to ensure that your property is secure.

For instance, if a defective electrical fitting in your home caught fire and caused damage to a neighbor's home, you would be liable.

If you file a claim for damage to your house with your insurance company, they may deny it if they consider your electrical systems have not been properly maintained.

In a domestic residence, it is suggested that an EICR Birmingham service be performed every 10 years. It's a common assumption that homeowners take better care of their electrical systems than renters. As a result, it is advised that an EICR be performed every ten years rather than every five.

If you're going to a new house that isn't brand new, we recommend getting an EICR done, before you move in. This will give you peace of mind that your new home's electrical system is up to code.

You will be handed an Electrical Safety Certificate, you are moving into a new construction or a house that has been totally rewired (EIC). This will demonstrate that your electrical installation meets the requirements of BS 7671. (IEE Wiring Regulations).

How Can I Figure Out How Many Electrical Circuits My Building Has?

When you schedule an EICR Birmingham inspection, the business will inquire about the number of circuits you have. This will aid them in determining a fee and the length of time it will take to complete your tests.

There are two things you can do if you don't know this number:
  • Send a copy of your prior EICR Certificate report to the firm.
  • Send a snapshot of your circuit board to the firm. They'll be able to figure out how many circuits you have using this.

What Happens During The EICR Inspection?

A trained Electrician or Electrical Engineer will check the electrical installations in your building during an EICR Birmingham examination.

A visual inspection will be performed by the electrical engineer, who will look for cracks, fractures, and symptoms of overheating. The circuits will next be tested electrically, with voltages and currents being utilised to ensure that they are safe.

If any problems are discovered, they will be documented and discussed in the report.

Is It Necessary To Switch Off The Power When Performing an EICR?

Both live (power on) and dead (power off) tests are used in EICR testing.

The majority of the testing is done while your electrical system is operational. However, several tests require that the power be switched off.

Circuits may be turned off separately, as long as they are properly labelled, resulting in minimal disruption in your building.
