PAT Testing Prices - Learn Everything Before Booking Your Appointment

In our homes, we use different electrical equipment every day for different purposes. Most times, we do not know if these electrical appliances are safe for use, but we make use of them regardless. Portable appliance testing also known as PAT testing is a series of tests that helps you determine how safe your electrical appliances are.

PAT testing is not required by law but it is the best way to comply with the electricity at work regulations of 1989 as well as other electricity regulations. PAT testing should be done regularly after which a PAT testing certificate will be issued alongside serial numbers for each electrical appliance tested.

Since PAT testing is a regular exercise, you should know the PAT testing prices and what you should budget for. 

It's for this reason we've made this post so that you'll know the PAT testing prices and the factors that affect its cost.

What You Should Expect To Pay

After extensive research, we found out that most companies charge a flat rate for the initial electrical equipment that is tested. Subsequently, a lesser fee is charged per appliance tested. The PAT testing prices differ from one company to another since they will provide you with a specific quote. However, for the PAT testing prices, you should expect to pay anything between £50-£100 as a flat rate for the initial batch and then between £1 to £3 after that.

If the company spends the whole day on your property, then for the PAT testing prices be ready to pay between £200 and £600.

Possible Factors That Can Affect The PAT Testing Prices

  • The location of the appliances:
    Where your electrical appliances are located within the building will significantly affect the PAT testing prices. If the appliances are situated in one place, you're likely to be charged less. However, if the appliances are located in different areas of the house, you will be charged more since it will take the electrician more time than usual to complete the tests.

  • The location of the electrician:
  • The location of the electrician will also affect the PAT testing prices. If the electrician has to travel a long distance to get to your house, he will probably increase the price. It’s advisable to hire electricians within your area. If you live in a remote area, you don't have to worry. will take care of your needs. We'll find a way to get you the best deal. Just reach out to us at We'll help you get the best PAT testing prices.

  • Extra work done:
    Most times the PAT testing isn't the only work that will be done by the electrician. There will be other electrical works but they might all be labeled under the PAT testing prices. The extra work to be carried out can also add to the PAT testing prices. Some of the additional services to be carried out by the electrician include fuse replacement, rewiring of plugs, replacing damaged plugs, etc. The more additional services you'll require, the higher the PAT testing prices.

How Does The PAT Testing Work?

Apart from the PAT testing prices, one other aspect you should have knowledge about is how the PAT testing process works. Firstly, the electrician will conduct visual checks on the appliances. This stage is important because many faults can be found in this stage. Once the visual checks are complete, the electrician then proceeds to the next stages of the tests. 

They are the earth resistance tests, earth continuity tests, and insulation resistance tests. Knowledge of the stages of the PAT tests are as important as the PAT testing prices.

Why Do Electrical Appliances Need PAT Testing?

Well, the most obvious reason is safety. Although PAT testing is not a legal requirement in the UK, businesses owe a duty of care to workers and customers to ensure that electrical equipment are safe for use and PAT testing helps guarantee this.

Different legislation has been put in place to ensure electrical safety at work such as the 1989 Electricity at Work Regulations and the Health & Safety at work act of 1974. One way to comply with these safety legislation is through PAT testing. If you do not comply with the safety regulations, you can be fined as a penalty and the PAT testing prices will be the least of your concerns.

What Type Of Electrical Appliances Need To Be Pat Tested?

There are 3 types of electrical appliances that should be considered for PAT testing. They are categorized into class 1, class 2, and class 3 appliances. Class 1 appliances are considered to be dangerous and extra care should be taken during the PAT testing while class 3 appliances are the least dangerous.

  • Class 1 appliances include vending machines, industrial machines, toasters, microwaves, kettles, freezers, washing machines, and even electric heaters.
  • Class 2 appliances are made up of less dangerous appliances such as televisions, food mixers, drills, DVD players, lamps, and hair dryers.
  • Class 3 appliances include appliances with low voltage like torches, cameras, and mobile phone chargers.

If you need PAT testing for your appliances and you do not know how to go about it, do not worry MyConstructor will take care of it.
