Check your electricity when you move house

At Q-Energy, we have the best team of electricians Staffordshire has to offer. One of the many services we provide is electrical installation condition reports. These are vital for new home owners.

When people are looking to buy a property, they should do basic checks for issues. One thing many people ignore though is the electrics. You may expect the surveyor to include it in their reports. However, surveys do not look at the wiring in your house.

The seller may have had no clue about the state of the electricity or may not inform you of the issues that are there. Therefore, you should always double check yourself. The best way to do this is to hire a registered electrician.

Professional checks are always worth the investment

A visual check may spot issues if you know what you are looking for. Even if you do look in the right places though, a problem may not be obvious. Some issues you cannot see at all, and need tools to inspect. An electrician can check fuses and circuit breakers to see if they would do their job of protecting your home and appliances.

It is better to find out sooner rather than later that there are issues with your property. You don’t want to wait until you’re faced with an issue and have to hire someone to fix your problem fast. An experienced electrician can spot issues you don’t or see something that is going to develop into an issue in the future.

It is most important with older homes

While it is important to check a property before you buy it, this is more important in an old house. Over the years standards have changed and electrics can deteriorate with age. Paying a registered electrician to survey the electrics as well as someone to inspect the rest of the property can be expensive. It is worth it to give yourself peace of mind that your new home is in the best shape possible. This also reduces the likelihood of any surprise problems in the future.

An Electrical Installation Condition Report looks at the switches, sockets and wiring. Any power sources need checking in relation to safety standards. You can ask the seller if they have this certificate to see when the last check was.
