The Importance of Electrical Testing
Electrical testing helps to maintain the safety of those around devices that use electricity as a source of power. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) estimates that around 1,000 accidents are reported every year as a result of electrical appliances.
Every home or business relies on hundreds of metres of fixed electrical wiring to power several items. Rather than risking temporary closure to your business or serious failures in your home, it gives you a chance to stay on top of your electrics. If electric shocks occur, then they can result in injury or death. Helping to protect your workers or family should be top of the list. With regular electrical maintenance, this can be achieved.
There are different types of electrical testing that can be carried out. These include PAT (Portable Appliance Testing), Flash testing, and earth bond testing. The process of PATs includes a visual check of the item. Flash testing is mainly for higher voltage products and can also be known as a hipot (high potential) or dielectic withstanding voltage (DWV) test. Earth bond testing typically measures the earth and the conductive parts of a product to ensure that there is a sufficient electrical connection. Without one, there is a chance that electrocution could happen to those working with the product.
Should I Get My House Re-wired?
If you have an old property or cannot remember the last time a re-wire took place, it may be time to contact an electrician. Maintaining healthy electrical wiring in your home keeps those within it safe. Although it may seem like an inconvenience, the safety of yourself and those around you is of the utmost importance. If there are any problems with your electrics, it could result in house fires, electric shocks, burns, or worse.
A house that hasn’t been rewired for between 25 and 30 years will most likely need re-wiring. You can look out for some obvious signs of damage to help you know when re-wiring needs to be undertaken. Also, if you have out-of-date plug sockets, breakers that trip, old cable colours, or flickering lights, then there is probably a problem with your wiring.
Wiring jobs do not have to carried out on old properties. They can also be completed on new builds and extensions. The process of a re-wire typically includes the fitting of new cabling under the floor and within the walls of a property. Access to all switches and sockets is required, which is why renovations are an ideal time to undertake this type of task.
