We did this EICR in an empty house and wanted to share it with you. So you can see how we do EICRs and what they involve in the real world.
Electrical Installation Condition Reports are something every electrician will get asked to do at some point, some electricians specialise in these.
The problem is that the standard seems to have dropped as many companies offer super cheap EICR’s and they are forced to do them extremely quickly because of the low price, this means that electricians like ourselves who do a full, thorough check often get priced out of the market but the super cheap competitors.
The way an EICR should be done is quite clear, and those who do a shortcut version are bringing the standard of our industry down.
You can find official guidance and tips for EICRs in this excellent book called Guidance Note 3: Inspection and Testing, you can buy it here: https://amzn.to/2SD5fF6
The test tools I use are the Fluke 1664FC Multifunction tester and a R2 long wander lead. You can buy the products for great prices and support the channel by clicking the links below:
