What happens in an electrical inspection?

Each electrical circuit in your house has a group of tests performed on them. The tests are as follows;
Continuity of CPC and bonding – This is to check that your protective conductors (earths) are electrically safe and correctly connected.
Continuity of ring final – Tests to ensure that there are no breaks or inter connection in any of the conductors/circuits feeding your sockets.
Insulation resistance – This is a test to measure the quality of the insulation between conductors (live, neutral and earth).
Polarity – A test to confirm that all live conductors are connected into live terminals.
Loop impedance – This test confirms the impedance of each circuit, which is used to calculate the speed a circuit will disconnect under fault.
RCD – If there is an RCD present in the installation it is tested to ensure it trips within the times give in BS7671 (electrical regulations).
Functional testing – To ensure that switch etc are working correctly.

House Rewire in Chesterfield, Derbyshire
“ My problem started with me trying to do my own DIY for a basic task,I thought it would save me time and money.How wrong I was!! I managed to short circuit the house and blow one of the main fuses plus some other things which I didnt realise Id done!!This was in an evening,so I was really glad when I called these guys and they sent someone round straight away. „

“ I was given a very reasonable estimate for the work. I went on holiday for 2 weeks and when I got back the work was complete. There were no extra costs and all the work was very professionally done. All the electrics worked and Ive had no trouble with the electrics since. Very satisfied. „
