What is a Domestic Electrical Health Check and why do I need one?

 

A Domestic Electrical Health Check from Jay Sparks is a basic electrical inspection and test of all your electrical wiring and fixed electrical equipment within your home and outbuildings. It covers a range of inspections and tests to help ensure that electrical equipment is safe, fit for purpose, correctly earthed and protected by suitable fuses or circuit breakers to help prevent electric shocks, electrocution, faults and electrical fires occurring.

 

Electric Fires are one of the most common causes of fires within domestic dwellings and can be created by many reasons and have devastating effect. In fact electrical fires are now considered to be the number one cause of fires within the commercial and industrial sectors.

 

The Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) who are jointly responsible for setting the British Standards of electrical installations within England & Wales (BS 7671 requirements for electrical installations) recommends domestic electrical installations are inspected and tested when newly installed, altered or added to and periodically inspected and tested at least every 10 years or at every change of ownership / tenancy.

 

Following any electrical inspection and testing copies of all relevant certificates, reports and schedules must be given to the person ordering the work.
