Domestic Electrical Safety Certificate
Fy cartref ya fy castell, as we say in Wales (My home is my Castle)
Our home is our safe haven. It’s a place where we seek refuge and enjoy ourselves with our loved ones after a busy day at work. Safety of electrical systems around the home is of paramount importance, not only for your immediate protection but also to avoid issues which result in nuisance tripping. Nothing worse than being without power on a Friday evening. Unless you live in a brand new home you have no idea what DIY the previous owner may have carried out or the standard or age of the installation.
Accidents don’t spare anyone. Unforeseen circumstances are beyond our control, we can’t always be prepared for them. But for what we can prepare, we should! This is why it is important that you have a domestic electrical safety certificate for your home. A domestic electrical certificate shows that your house is compliant with the regulations laid by the IET and British Standards.
Domestic Electrical Installation Certificate
It is important to get a domestic electrical installation certificate for your home. Only an electrician who has installed the wiring in your house can give you a domestic electrical installation certificate. The certificate states that the installation has been carried out in accordance with BS7671.
