Continue reading and learn how you can find electricians in Liverpool.
What is an EICR Liverpool?
An Electrical Certificate, also known as an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), is a document that proves that your property meets government regulated safety standards.
It is carried out by a certified electrical engineer who inspects all electrical installations within the property, ensuring that the writings and electrics are safe.
The inspection will be carried out against the UK standards for the safety and electrical installations.
What Happens Durning an EICR Inspection?
- The certified engineer will find and report any wear and tear or damaged electrical installations.
- It will become known if any of the electrical equipment or circuits are overloaded.
- The engineer will find andy potential fire hazards or electrical shock risks.
- Any poor earthing or bonding will also be revealed.
How Often Do I Need an EICR Certificate?
Electrical equipment will wear down over time so these inspections need to be repeated every few years to ensure a safety standard is kept in place. As mentioned previously, the EICR Liverpool has to be carried out by a certified electrical engineer.
Certificated carried out by anyone else will not be accepted as legitimate by most local councils, housing associations, estate ages or managing agents. The Electrical Certificate UK has to be signed off ONLY by a certified individual.
What is the Importance of an EICR?
Almost half of house fires in the UK occur as a result of faulty electrical wiring, which is a direct result of neglecting safety regulations and not obtaining an EICR Liverpool.The issue is an important one as accidents related to faulty wiring and electrical fires can be life threatening.
Do I Need to Obtain an EICR Liverpool?
In the case that you are a homeowner, it is not your legal obligation to obtain one, however, an in-spection is still advised to be carried out every 10 years, or more often based on your preference.
Note: Not having a valid EICR could affect your relationship with your insurance company, as in the case of an accident involving faulty electrics, they may choose to refuse a claim.
How Much Does an EICR Liverpool cost?
An Electrical Certificate UK cost depends on various factors, listed below:
- The age of your home, whether it is a new build or an older property.
- The size of the property.
- The complexity of the electrical installations in the property.
- The number of electrical appliances and areas which require to be checked.
- How accessible the electrical installations are in the property.
- Finally, the hourly rate of your chosen, certified, electrical engineer.
The EICR Liverpool costs begin at £69, when using the services of MyConstructor.
How Long Will It Take to Carry Out the Inspection?
Older homes usually have more outdated wirings and so the inspection may take a bit longer. The size of the property is also a determining factor.
Smaller properties may take as little as an hour to inspect, whereas larger houses will take slightly longer, around 3 to 4 hours.
Can an EICR Inspection be Failed?
Having an inspection carried out is not enough to ensure a ‘pass’ as your property has to be compliant with UK safety standards. Electrical installations need to be kept to a safe and appropriate standard, as through time everything wears out.
When an appliance or any part of the electrical system is deemed unsafe or faulty the certified elec-trical engineer will mark it as ‘unsatisfactory’.
This is not the end of the world, as at this point you will be aware that the appliance needs to be changed, fixed or removed and so you will have avoided any potential health and safety hazard in your home/property.
Failure to comply with regulations and failure to take action after failing an EICR Liverpool can result in hefty fines due to the number of accidents and fires, electrical faults cause, in the UK, every year. If a breach occurs, the local authority is responsible for taking action.
Note: Penalties of up to £30,000 may be issued to those property owners who fail to comply with the EICR Liverpool requirements.
It is also important to note that in cases where it is evident that the landlord has failed to comply, the local authority has the right to carry out emergency remedial work, with the permission of the tenant. The bill of incurred costs is then forwarded to the landlord.
