Local Electrical Inspectors and Testers

Electrical inspectors and testers play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and optimal functionality of electrical systems, components, and equipment. For property owners in Australia, especially those with ageing electrical systems, it is advisable to consider having comprehensive inspections. This not only provides peace of mind regarding the safety of the system but also helps identify potential repairs or the need for a complete rewiring of the property.

 

In Australia, landlords are obligated to arrange electrical inspections and testing for their properties every five years. It is a legal requirement, and they must obtain an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) certificate from a qualified electrician. This certificate serves as documentation that the electrical installations in the property comply with safety standards.

 

Whether there is a legal mandate for an electrical inspection or you simply want to proactively assess your electrical system to prevent hazards such as electrical fires, you can easily find the most reliable and qualified electrical inspectors and testers in the Top Tradies directory. Ensure the safety of your property by staying informed about the condition of your electrical systems through regular inspections by trusted professionals.

Frequently asked questions about electrical inspectors and testers

The primary job of an electrical inspector or tester is to examine electrical systems, equipment and components to check for any potential hazards and to rectify any issues that are identified. 

 

Electrical inspectors use specialist equipment to conduct testing, such as Approved Voltage Indicators, Digital Multimeters and insulation testers.

 

Electrical inspectors test electrical systems and equipment to check that they meet the required British Standards, for example, electrical installation and wiring safety must meet the BS 7671 requirements. The electrician will inspect appliances, power sockets, lighting and any other electrical fixings to check that they are safe to use.

 

Electrical inspectors can test electrical equipment in commercial and domestic properties, including Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing). When new properties are built, electrical inspectors will perform comprehensive testing on the electrical systems to ensure they meet the required standards.

To do an inspection report, an electrical inspector will usually charge between £200 and £500. The cost will vary depending on the size of the property, the number of appliances and accessibility to the wiring system. As a daily rate, a qualified electrical inspector will usually charge between £200 and £350.

 

If the property has a complex circuit board, this will usually increase the cost of the inspection. 

 

The inspection may identify that some repairs are required to bring the electrical system up to the required standards, which the electrician will usually quote you for as part of the testing service. Older properties that have not had the electrical wiring system upgraded may have a number of issues identified in the inspection and a full rewiring may be recommended.

If your electrical inspector advises that you need to have the property rewired, the total cost will be somewhere between £2,000 for a smaller property and up to £10,000 for a larger property.

 

Rewiring a property requires the electrician to access all the cabling that runs through the walls and floors and this may mean removing plaster and then replastering once the new wiring system is installed. 

 

There may also be redecoration required as a result, so the costs can mount up, so it is important to find a good quality electrical tradesperson with reasonable rates, to help you to keep your costs down for an electrical project as big as rewiring a full property.
