Testing and Tagging
Why do you need to test your electronic appliances?
Testing and tagging is an extremely important process in ensuring that all newly installed appliances and electronics are working safely and properly. Electronical appliances are most commonly required to undergo this procedure. Having said that, there are also many other electrical components and gadgets that need to be tested to prevent any kind of malfunctions or safety risks for users.
The test tagging process is not as quick as you may think, taking even several months to complete the whole task correctly. The testing process has different stages, with each stage having different time points. Time points depend on the equipment type that is being tested. A lot of common, generic pieces of equipment immediately show a score of fail or pass. It is the opposite for more in-depth investigations, which usually require a longer time frame to determine the score and identify the reason for failure.
When electronic equipment goes under certain test tagging procedure, an experienced and professional tester will illustrate the potential dangers that can be associated with the machines that are being analysed.

How to provide a high quality service?

Why do you need a safety check?
When faulty wiring causes an unexpected blackout or your switches become faulty, everyone calls an electrician with no hesitation.
Surprisingly, there are those who do not share the same amount of concern for their properties and worse, their own safety and health. This is truly concerning as it is no secret that the cause of most house fires are overloaded circuits or faulty wiring. People should put more effort in making sure that their homes and businesses undergo safety inspections.
Regular safety checks can keep you and your family away from danger and serious injuries, even death. They also prevent you from incurring damages on your home and all your valuable belongings. Nowadays, state governments often support home safety inspections so it is really difficult to find any possible excuse to forego professional help. One call is all it takes to have a capable electrician perform a safety check of all areas of your home. Such a small act can save you from life-threatening injuries and financial troubles.
The Safety Check Process
While performing safety checks, our responsible crew sees to it that your electrical equipment and circuits are not overloaded. Furthermore, potential problems and deficiencies are easily highlighted so that any electrical hazard can be eliminated immediately.
Ticking time bombs ready to explode are especially apparent in old houses that haven’t been inspected for many years, maybe even decades. They can be very easily equipped with faulty bonding or earthing and cause dangerous accidents. Government-funded safety checks can be carried out only by approved professional electrical home safety inspectors so you can be sure that your safety is in the best possible hands. While performing the assessment, your safety inspector performs some very detailed tests with the power switch off and do a visual audit. After the test is finished, your system is restored to its original condition and your inspector gives you any advice you may need, and also detailed explanations of the implications. Finally, you get a report containing an evaluation of your electrical installations’ condition. We also determine whether it is safe or in need of remedial work.
Electrical inspections ease your worries and lets you live your life knowing that you and your family are sheltered in a safe environment.
Safety inspection is especially vital if:
- Your house is older (more than 25 years) and has never had an inspection
- Your home has old wiring
- You are trying to sell your property—safety of your property is a big plus for potential buyers.
