Home Buyers Electrical Testing

Make sure you’re bringing your family to a safe home…

If you’re thinking of buying a home in the Cheshire region, maybe in Stockport, Bramhall, Hazel Grove, Cheshire, Marple, Wilmslow, Cheadle, Poynton or Handforth, we can’t recommend strongly enough that you engage a qualified, credentialed electrician to perform thorough home buyers electrical testing in the home you’re considering.

Unfortunately, a lot of substandard electrical work has been done in our region over the years by people who were either unaware or negligent of our national wiring safety standards. We’ve done many inspection and tests and found quite a few homes in need of important safety upgrades, even when everything looked perfect.

Surveyors cannot perform electrical testing…

It’s a common misconception that the surveyor who assesses your home structurally can do the same for your electrical system. The fact is, they have neither the training nor equipment to do electrical testing. A surveyor may be able to see a fuse box and comment, quite correctly, about its age, but electrical safety is about much more than the state of your fuse box. Thorough examination and Electrical safety testing of your system is the only way to ensure safety for you and your family.

Here’s what 5Star Electrical Services can do…

Please call us when you have a home you’re interested in and let us ask you some questions about it—that will help us in deciding which of our services to recommend.

  • Full Electrical Testing with Certification: As we mentioned above, surveyors cannot test wiring. In addition to knowing all of the visual signs to look for when inspecting your electrical system, our technicians use specialized equipment for testing the soundness of your wiring, even within the walls of your home, that you can not see. We then take all these results and input them into your computer system to generate you an Electrical Installation Condition Report, an EICR, previously know as a PIR.

We make the electrical testing process very convenient…

We’re in regular contact with the estate agents in the region so, if we need arrange to collect keys to the home you’re looking at, so we can do our inspection, we arrange that easily. We’ll collect the keys, perform your inspection and/or test and then return the keys to the estate agent, all on your behalf. We will then report back to you with the results of your inspection and/or test.
