Periodic Electrical Testing

Electrical Testing Factsheet  

Periodic Electrical Testing needs to be carried out at your property to ensure your home is safe and that your internal electrics meet the approved standards as safe to use. These standards are set out by the Welsh Government and homes need to be tested once every 5 years to comply.

Engineers check the wiring and fuse board at your home and 30% of your homes electrical fittings such as your light switches and plug sockets. They do this to make sure your home is safe and complying with the Welsh Government Standards.

When your home is due to be tested Pen Alyn will contact you to arrange a mutually convient appointment. Due to the importance of this test it is essential you allow the engineer access to your property for this to be carried out. Once tested your home won’t need to be tested again for 5 years.

Access is Vital. We have to carry out a 5-yearly Electrical Testing by law, whether you use your electric supply or not. If the suggested time and date becomes unsuitable, please contact us to rearrange.

Beacause we cannot guarentee your safety unless we have been given access to service, failure to let us into your home will result in legal action by applying to the court for an “injunction for access”.

 

If you need to amend an existing electrical testing appointment please phone 0800 970 72 72

If you wish to report a fault with your electrics report a repair.
