Electrical Inspecting and Testing

Electrical Inspecting and Testing

Denholm Electrical provide a full range of domestic and commercial inspection and testing services. If you are a landlord or business owner, you need to legally comply with safety legislation to protect tenants in your properties and employees in the workplace. We provide the full range of electrical testing and inspection services from installation certificates and annual tests, periodic electrical installation certificates and reports.

Electrical installations can deteriorate with use over a period of time. It is therefore very important that all installations are periodically tested and inspected to ensure that they remain safe and that they adhere to the latest safety regulations. We are fully qualified to carry out electrical condition reports and offer very competitive rates.

A periodic electrical inspection will record the results of the inspection and testing to make sure the electrical installation is safe to be used until the next inspection – following any work needed to make it safe. Inspections will find any damage and wear and tear that might affect safety and find any parts of the electrical installation that do not meet the IET Wiring Regulations. They also help find anything that may cause electric shocks or danger to the public.

They provide a record of the installation at the time of the inspection for inspection and testing in the future.

Electrical Installation Condition Report. (EICR)

Old and damaged electrical fixtures are one of the leading causes of house fires. Conducting a Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) can reduce the risk of electrical mishaps and keep your entire household and office safe.

With ever changing regulations and recommendations the fuse board is where a lot of problems and dangers are found.

Domestic EICRs should be carried out every ten years or whenever there is a change of occupancy. If you think you have a problem that needs checked then get in touch with us as soon as possible.

Commercial EICR should be carried out every 3 years or change of occupancy. If there is a swimming pull then it’s every 12 months.

What are we looking for?

  • – Correct earthing and bonding
  • – Condition of the consumer unit
  • – Condition and suitably of wiring
  • – Any defect or deterioration on the installations
  • – Functionality of all electrical fixtures including switches, socket-outlets, and wiring.

An EICR report will detail specific fixtures that need repair. Damage is ranked using the following codes:

  • – C1 – “Danger present. Risk of injury. Immediate remedial action required.”
  • – C2 – “Potentially dangerous. Urgent remedial action required.”
  • – C3 – “Improvement recommended.”


Should your EICR test come out with “unsatisfactory” results, do not panic. Focus instead on carrying out the necessary repair and maintenance as soon as possible.

We are not here to fail an installation or look for faults, if we find faults we will discuss the best course of action to be taken.

Denholm Electrical were recommended to me by my neighbour so I gave them a try. The man that came out, worked really hard for two days and transformed my bedroom with downlights and wall lighting. Very neat job and a good price. Very friendly too.

Delighted with the electrical work to my workshop in Aberdeen. They kept to the original price and finished the job on time. I would gladly recommend Denholm Electrical to anybody looking for trustworthy electricians.

We made the right choice choosing Denholm Electrical to install our new bathroom and kitchen lighting. We love it. Completely changed our property. Five stars from us.

I would not hesitate to recommend Denholm Electrical. They installed two outdoor water proofed plug sockets and an electric vehicle charging unit to our house. Really competently installed. 10/10!

I received a quote from Denholm Electrical for some indoor lighting in my living room and hallway. The quote was very competitive and I instructed them to do the job. They ended up doing a first class job. I would not hesitate to recommend them to my friends and family and will be using them again in the future for sure.

Really good electrician. I have used him on three occasions at my offices and home and he has delivered to perfection on each occasion. He always tidies up after himself and is exceptionally polite and well mannered. Very professional service.
