    What is Electrical Testing?

    Electrical testing is the process of inspecting an electrical system, whether it be in a house, a device, or elsewhere, with the aim of making sure that everything is working as it should.

    • Electrical testing is a relatively broad term, and can be broken down into specific types of testing. These include:
    • Continuity testing: Used to ensure that a system’s wires, connection and other components can carry an electrical current without interruption.
    • Ground resistance testing: used to make sure that a system is effective at grounding a current, keeping it safe to use.
    • Insulation resistance testing: used to measure the resistance of electrical insulation, making sure that it’s effective and safe to use.
    • Voltage testing: Used to check for faulty wiring or other issues, it tests the electrical potential difference between two points in a circuit.

    How do I get my electrics tested?

    Unless you’re a professional electrician or have extensive experience working with electrical systems, it’s highly recommended that you enlist the help of a professional when testing your electrics. It’s a dangerous task and doing it incorrectly can result in serious injury.

    If you are looking to hire a professional, take the time to find the right one. Electricians will all have different availability, costs, experience and qualifications.

    To find the right one for you, a good first step is always to ask your friends and family for a recommendation. If they’ve had a good experience with that electrician, there’s a good chance you will too.

    If this doesn’t turn up anything, search online. Make sure to check their reviews, testimonials, prices and qualifications before getting in touch and asking for a quote.

    Why do I need to get my electrics tested?

    Like most things, electrical circuits deteriorate over time. When this happens, there’s a risk that things can go wrong, causing potential safety hazards.

    But until you start to notice problems, it’s easy to delay testing your electrics. But there are many reasons why you should keep up to date with your electrical tests, and these include:

    • Safety – electrical tests can identify any problems with your electrics which could be potentially dangerous.
    • Regulations – in a lot of cases, it’s required by law to get your electrics tested periodically.
    • Efficiency – electrical systems that are older and aren’t cared for tend to be less efficient, meaning that you have to spend more to get the same amount of power.
    • Prevents damage – electrical systems that have deteriorated pose a substantial fire hazard. Left unchecked, you could be risking a fire breaking out in your property.
