Home electrical testing and maintenance (EICR)
All domestic electrical installations deteriorate over time with regular usage. It is therefore important that periodic inspections are carried out to test whether electrical systems are in an acceptable condition for continued use. Faulty electrical supplies present a considerable risk of fire and electrocution to you and your family.
Last year, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) revealed that 25% of all reported electrical accidents involved portable appliances, so it is equally important that Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing) is carried out alongside comprehensive testing of your home’s electrical circuits.
At Huttie, our fully-accredited NIEIC electrical engineers have been carrying out home electrics testing and maintenance for homes across Cambridgeshire and London for many years, keeping homes safe and efficient. Our engineers work to identify and isolate any defective electrical work, making homeowners immediately aware of any safety concerns they have.

For owner-occupied homes, the electric circuits should be periodically inspected every 10 years. Inspections need to occur twice as frequently for rented accommodation, with testing legally required every five years. If you’re selling a property or you’re purchasing a previously occupied home and you want to be sure of the safety and efficiency of the building’s electrical circuits, our engineers can carry out thorough fixed wire testing throughout a property at highly competitive rates.
In the event of an electrical emergency, Huttie engineers are available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day via our call-out service. If you’re concerned that your home is unsafe due to inadequate or dangerous electric wiring, please don’t hesitate to contact us immediately and our on-call electricians will arrive quickly on-site to locate the cause of the problem.
