Electrical Inspections | David Blundell Electrical

Why inspect and test electrical appliances?

Left untested, electrical appliances and installations can become a major hazard in a property, potentially resulting in death.
Our fully qualified electricians are able to test appliances and circuits to ensure current safety regulations are being met, and offer affordable solutions in the event a fault is present. We also offer electrical surveys for homebuyers.

All electrical installations deteriorate over time, damaged installations can and do kill if not maintained correctly.

By testing, we can identify faults and correct them and reduce the risk of injury to you and damage to your property.
