We use electricity in our homes without even thinking, in fact, we use it so often that it is easy to forget just how dangerous electricity can be.
Having your home electrics tested is the best way to ensure they are safe to use, any electrical inspection cost is worth it to protect your family and home.
Faulty wiring, appliances, or electrical supplies carry a risk of fire or electrocution. At Huttie our NICEIC accredited electricians can check the electrical infrastructure within your home is working safely and they will be able to identify any potential electrical fire hazards that need addressing.
Over time electrical installations can deteriorate and become hazardous which is why it is a good idea to arrange for an inspection when buying a new house or moving, particularly if it is an older property. With fees to pay and furniture to buy we understand that moving home is already costly and a visit from an electrician might seem like an unnecessary additional expense, however, this visit will be far cheaper than any potential financial or human cost of an electrical related fire in your new home.
Even if you are not moving house we recommend that you have the electrical circuits in your home checked every 10 years and as of 1 June 2020, private landlords in England are required by law to have their rental properties inspected by a qualified electrician every 5 years, making them essential on any landlord’s home inspection list.
Therefore it is better to think of any electrical inspection cost as an investment in safety, not an unwanted fee because peace of mind is priceless.
