Inspection & Testing

4 Way Electrical can provide a full range of Inspection and Testing services including:

Fixed Installation Testing

This test outlines any defects that may prove to be a safety hazard on the electrical wiring of a property. Fixed installation tests are necessary because all electrical installations can sustain damage over time due to factors such as wear and tear, corrosion or excessive electrical loading.

Portable Appliance Testing or PAT Testing

PAT testing or portable appliance testing is an important part of any health and safety policy. It is a form of electrical safety testing carried out annually to establish how safe your day to day electrical appliances are. This can be anything from a vacuum cleaner, kettle or computer in your home or workplace.

Homebuyers Periodic Inspection Report

This report takes the form of a fixed installation test, in which the electrical wiring on the property you wish to purchase is tested for any defects. We would definitely recommend all property buyers and landlords get a qualified electrician to conduct a periodic inspections report before buying or letting a property. It could potentially save you from getting seriously hurt due to an unsafe electrical installation, and a really large bill to get the problems rectified.

Landlord Electrical Safety Certificate

Owners of buildings have a duty of care to its users, so it is the landlord’s responsibility to ensure the electrical installation is safe when a new tenancy begins, and is maintained in a safe condition throughout that tenancy. It is recommended to get a portable appliance test carried out every year, and a periodic inspection report every 5 years if there are no alterations/additions to the electrical installation.

We can contact tenants, or collect keys from letting agents to gain access on your behalf. We provide a special rate for landlords if you are getting tests carried out on more than one property.
