Happy New Year ! a recap of 2016

EICR Edinburgh would like to take this opportunity to thank all its customers for their business throughout 2016.

2016 was a great year for EICR Edinburgh electrical services. Our electricians assisted many customers in Edinburgh and the Lothians with fuse board / fuse box installations.  Our Electrical Testing service saw us provide dozens of electrical safety certificates (EICR, PAT & PIR) for landlords & businesses.  Our electrical safety experts installed smoke alarms , carbon monoxide detectors and tested emergency lighting.  Our environmentally conscious team saw a rise in the demand for led lights installations in Edinburgh and more voltage optimisers installations being carried out.

Finally, a special thanks to all the customers who left reviews. We were delighted with all the fabulous reviews left on both google and free index.

All the best for 2017

Haddington West Parish Church EICR Edinburgh

EICR Testing and Installation at Haddington West Parish Church Edinburgh

We recently performed a comprehensive EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) at Haddington West Parish Church in Edinburgh.

We found 8 of the 40 shades to be in an immediately dangerous condition, ready to fall. Sited 20 feet above the public seating area. We found low insulation resistance readings (faults) simply due to sloppy installation work ( completed in 2009). If it’s not safe, it’s not good enough. Your safety is our number one priority at EICR Edinburgh.

House Rewire Customer Testimonial

Mark and his team recently did a complete rewire of a newly purchased house for me. The electrics had not been looked at in many years and the entire house needed rewiring, a new fuseboard as well as sockets and switches needing updating. The free quote I received was very fair and the job was completed on time. I would recommend Mark and his team to anyone and would definitely use them for any electrical work in the future.

Customer Testimonial for EICR Report in Edinburgh

Mark and Andy conducted an EICR of a one bedroom flat. There were a multitude of problems which presented themselves in a recently renovated bathroom, with serious faults, which were immediately disconnected. Mark advised that I should make the renovation company aware of these faults and give them an opportunity to rectify these issues. As I was on a tight schedule to prepare my property for rental, he was prepared to and able to ensure remedial work (rewire, location and correction of fault on lighting circuit, amongst many others) was carried out two days before I was due to relocate, even making rearrangements to his work schedule. In addition, Mark also carried out PAT testing and installed hardwired fire alarms and CO detectors in the flat with no damage to existing décor. His professionalism and work ethic is second to none; his work is to a very high standard and I am very grateful for his help, advice and services. I would have absolutely no hesitation in using him again, or in giving a recommendation. He really is an asset to all the electrical contractors out there.
