Landlord’s Electrical Safety

Electrical Safety First has found that some landlords are unaware of the significant financial risks from fines and invalid insurance through not acting on their electrical safety obligations. gas-elec can ensure your Landlord’s electrical installation is legally covered.

gas-elec can carry out EICRs

An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is an inspection of the condition of an existing electrical installation. It identifies any deficiencies against the national safety standard for electrical installations and is reported in a Document that complies with the current wiring regulations.

The certificate provided will grade the findings and identify any short comings in respect of the current BS7671 standards.

Electrical remedial work

gas-elec’s trained electricians will quote for any remedial work generated from the safety checks carried out and bring the condition up to current legislative standards.

Portable Appliance Test

The Landlord is also responsible for any electrical appliances left behind for tenant use. gas-elec can ensure they are electrically safe, and provide certification that they are safe when we carry out the EICR.

BOILER PLUS: 2018

Legislation around heating manufacture and installation are changing this April 6th 2018; these changes address the energy efficiency of heating systems and are being introduced by the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

The biggest changes involve the minimum performance levels for domestic boilers. Going forwards 92% ErP will be the minimum efficiency standard for all boilers manufactured and installed, aiming to reduce carbon emissions set by the EU, and to phase out inefficient boilers. Boiler plus has been created to assist with the Governments Clean growth strategy; ultimately tasked to battle climate change and lower energy bills without reducing domestic comfort levels.

These changes are going to affect all of us, whether Engineer, Landlords, or individual Homeowners. Installers who knowingly install boilers disregarding
the new regulations, can be prosecuted by Building Control for breaking the law. Gas Safe will also be able to refer safety concerns to the HSE and if any
invoicing by installers is carried out for works passed illegally it will be classed as fraudulent under training standards. Homeowners can also be fined up to
£5000 if they knowingly allow non-compliant works to be carried out, and can also face prosecution.
