Are you looking for Domestic Electrical services in the Kettering area? Then call Drage Electrics today on 01536480003
Since January 2005, domestic electrical installations have been included within the scope of Building Regulations. All new domestic electrical installations, together with specific alterations and additions to current installations, have to be inspected and comply with strict electrical safety performance standards. The standards cover the design, installation, inspection and testing of domestic electrical work and the provision of information.
This is due to the need to reduce the hazards posed by unsafe domestic electrical installations and thereby help to reduce injuries from electrical shocks and burns. It is also hoped to reduce injuries arising from fires in dwellings due to electrical components overheating or arcing.
When the time comes to sell your property, your purchaser’s surveyors will ask for evidence that notifiable domestic electrical work, installed after January 2005, complies with the new Building Regulations. There are two ways to prove compliance:
1. A certificate showing that the work has been undertaken by a competent installer who is registered under one of six Electrical Self-Certification schemes. Drage Electrics is registered under NICEIC.
2. A completion certificate from the local authority saying that the installation has approval under the Building Regulations. This, however, is dependent on the owner who has ordered the relevant electrical test certificates on completion of the installation from a competent person, and on the electrics being inspected by a competent person during installation.
So, whether you require a single socket or a complete re-wire, Drage Electrics offers you unparalleled service with over 40 years experience and fully qualified electricians.
