Electrical Safety Survey

Next month, Cole Electrical will be conducting FREE electrical safety checks throughout the Derby area. To qualify for this service, you must be the home owner, and your home must be at least 20 years old.

The check will take less than an hour and will not cause any mess. We will visually inspect your fuseboard, earthing and wiring installation to see if these comply with the electrical safety regulations. We check if the wiring is in a sound condition generally. We will also test your RCD, smoke alarms, test your earthing if applicable. Any shortcomings identified will be detailed on our report, which will be given to you. You are NOT OBLIGED to have any remedial work carried out that we recommend.

If you would like to take advantage of this free safety check, please contact us via our contact page or by phone. We will then contact you for a convenient appointment for your check (We can usually accommodate early evenings and Saturdays where necessary).
