EICR in Weymouth

An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is a formal assessment document generated after evaluating the electrical setup of a property, conducted by a qualified electrician or approved contractor with expertise in periodic inspection and testing. These professionals typically have undergone relevant training and are registered with recognized bodies like the Joint Industry Board (JIB) or accredited schemes like the NICEIC.

There are various reasons why homeowners might opt for an EICR, especially when evidence of electrical safety is necessary. In rented accommodations, an EICR is often sought due to its simplicity and efficiency in proving the safety of the electrical setup. Additionally, it’s advisable for domestic residences to undergo EICR every 10 years to ensure the electrical system’s condition remains optimal, although certain factors may necessitate more frequent inspections. These factors include the age of the installation, property type (such as those with swimming pools), environmental conditions, misuse or vandalism, changes in occupancy (especially in rental properties), or any concerns regarding electrical safety.

While there’s no legal mandate to conduct an EICR in any circumstance, it offers assurance of electrical safety for homeowners at a relatively low cost. Comparable to annual boiler or car servicing, the expense of periodic EICRs is modest, yet they can potentially prevent substantial costs by identifying and rectifying issues before they escalate.

During an EICR assessment, the electrician identifies and categorises any observed defects or omissions within the electrical setup using recommendation codes indicating severity levels. These observations are presented transparently and are not intended as a sales pitch. Subsequently, homeowners can seek competitive quotes for addressing the identified issues, providing them with autonomy in decision-making regarding necessary electrical maintenance or repairs.

For an EICR to work most effectively, Dorset Extensions Electrical recommend having an EICR at the recommended intervals as described by the 17th edition wiring regs and have the work carried out as recommended for the property to remain electrically safe.

Well what can we say about Michael and the team!! From day 1 we were impressed with his enthusiasm and professionalism. Everything we asked for (including some great ideas from Michael) has been executed perfectly, on budget and well within time. Our work required a range of different contractors which Michael was able to arrange seamlessly with no stress involved on our part. They were ready to take on any task required all of which have been accomplished to the highest standard. We highly recommend this company.

So I wanted to treat myself to a new kitchen and hallway upgrade & had lots of quotes. Dorset Extensions came to my property and talked me through the whole process and explained why my kitchen would be out of bounds for a few days and left me with full understanding as to why. The whole design process and installation was a doddle and could not be happier with the results. Would highly recommend

A couple of years ago, Mike and Gaz updated my kitchen, and I'm still really pleased with it. I was heavily pregnant and nesting at the time, so very hormonal, and they were really considerate and kind to me. They were both a pleasure to have in the house, always friendly, and communicated their progress clearly, and did amazingly well at keeping mess to a minimum. I would definitely contact them again, next time I want work doing in my home.

Excellent service and polite and tidy. I have used Dorset extensions and garden rooms, for several jobs around my home, from fencing, ground work, plumbing, carpentry and brick work. When they say give us a call we do it all they mean it. I have never received anything short of excellent service, on occasion with a plumbing emergency getting to me quickly, providing vision to transform an awkward space in the garden. I have always found all of the team to be professional and polite. I have recommended them to friends who have had large projects completed to exceptional standards and have been exceptionally happy with the results. I would not and never do hesitate to recommend them to friends and colleagues looking for a reliable and trustworthy builder.
