Many people make sure to get their buildings and property thoroughly evaluated for stability and pests. However, whether you run a business or have a home, electrical safety is a crucial aspect that you cannot miss. Although it’s important to ensure that your home is free of pests and is suitable for living, getting a periodic inspection is just as important to ensure that you’re safe from power cuts and even more dangerous situations.

Dangers of Old or Faulty Electrical Fittings

Not only do new properties require inspections, but so do older ones to check that they haven’t been compromised over the years. If you have an electrical installation that doesn’t function efficiently, you could experience power cuts. Apart from this, you could also experience short circuits because of poorly insulated wires, electrocution when you come in contact with a socket, and a fire because of faulty plugs, sockets or electrical overloads.

While you might be able to check out certain plugs or sockets by yourself,  we highly advise that you hire a professional, such as Claddagh Electrics to conduct your fittings and regular inspections.

Importance of Periodic Inspections

An EICR or Electric Inspection Condition Report ( a periodic inspection), will show if your business or home’s electrical installations have been compromised with a thorough report, which can’t be identified with a visual check. We will provide qualified electrical engineers that will conduct an efficient report and inspection to reduce risks and provide a safe home and work environment.

The engineers will run tests throughout the process and complete the EICR, with a detailed analysis on faulty or damaged fittings, and non-compliances with current safety standards.

Why Do I Need an Inspection Periodically?

Electrical installations can be damaged with age and use, which is why you need periodic inspections done at home or at work. It will ensure that your home is a safe space to live, and a safe place to work in if you carry out an inspection for your business or work space. 

What Can I Expect from the Inspection?

If your periodic inspection comes back negative, the EICR will deem the results as unsatisfactory and we will need to work on the failed electrical system or systems immediately. Inspections are usually classified according to the following codes and can provide further detail regarding each:

  • C1- This code means that there is danger present and immediate action is required for the safety of residents, employees, guests, or customers.
  • C2- If you see C2 in your report, it means ‘potentially dangerous’, with urgent action required. While the threat isn’t immediate, it could develop in the future.
  • C3-  This falls under the ‘improvement recommended’ category. With this code, your installations could still pass the threat because even though something does not comply with standard regulations, it isn’t considered dangerous.
