Even the most modern electrical systems will require on-site maintenance from time to time. There are also instances when a full inspection is necessary to satisfy specific regulations. Not only can this help to guarantee a safe environment, but legal considerations could also need to be addressed. When renting a property out to tenants, a landlord may need in-depth electrical testing before any agreement is signed. Or, selling a location might require a third-party electrical inspection in order for it to be placed on the market. Regardless of the reasons, it is an undeniable fact that such services will guarantee that any system is in top working condition.

At Crowhurst and Son Electrical Contractors in Gloucester, we provide Part P circuit testing, PAT testing, and electrical insulation testing.
Since it came into effect in 2005, Part P laws have made it a legal requirement for all fixed electrical installations to meet certain criteria. It applies to houses, maisonettes, and flats, as well as commercial properties that share an electricity supply with domestic dwellings.
Part P includes criteria for electrical design, installation, the subsequent inspection, testing, verification, and certification. Part P circuit testing is important to ensure the safety of both yourself and others, aiming to reduce the risk of injury, and death, from electric shocks, burns, power supply interruptions and fires. As electrical contractors, we have seen an improvement in industry standards since Part P was introduced and we are proud to maintain this high standard throughout all of our electrical work.
PAT testing is a routine process where electrical appliances are checked for health and safety purposes. This test usually includes a visual inspection of such equipment, the attached electrical cables/wires and where necessary, the earthing continuity.
