Fault Finding Services
An electrical fault can be something as simple as a broken plug or appliance, or as serious as an exposed live wire in your mains supply. The trouble is that unless you know how to find a fault, it can be almost impossible to track down the problem before it becomes more serious. Trained electricians from MG London can use their experience, expertise and specialised equipment to provide homeowners and businesses in London with a fault finding service that will keep you, your family, tenants and your customers safe.
How does it work?
If you discover that there is an electrical fault in your home or business premises, simply call us at MG London. We will arrange for one of our qualified and certified electricians to come to your home or business and carry out a full diagnostic check using specialist tools. We use top of the range multimeters to test for continuity on your circuits, and by a process of elimination we will track down the fault and advise on repairs.
Depending on the nature of the fault, we can test a single area or circuit, or test the whole property. If we discover additional faults, we will then provide you with informed, professional advice.
What are the most common faults?
Our professional electricians are qualified and experienced to deal with all kinds of electrical repairs. We find that the most common problems are usually quite easily solved, and include:
- Faulty connections in wiring, which can be re-wired correctly
- Faulty sockets, switches or lights, or electrical components such as dimmer modules, extractor fans etc., which can be replaced.
A step-by-step guide to MG London’s electrical fault finding service
If you suspect that you have an electrical fault in your home or business, call our team. We will send one of our highly trained and fully qualified electricians to you as quickly as we can. They use their expertise and specialist equipment to track down and identify the fault. Once the fault has been found they will then:
- Isolate the electrical circuit to ensure it is safe to work on
- Replace the faulty component or faulty section of wiring
- Reinstate the power and test completed work to ensure it is both safe and operating correctly.
They will also advise if any other related work is necessary, such as redecorating around repaired or replaced switches, or whether further repairs or replacement electrical wiring work is required.
Our experts can also carry out an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report). This is a comprehensive check that tests all circuits, and any findings and recommendations are then listed on the report. This may be a requirement for your property insurance if you are a business, part of a full survey for homeowners looking to sell or buy a property, or part of your duty of care as a landlord or property manager.
How much will it cost?
At MG London, we operate a transparent pricing policy that doesn’t hit you with any ‘hidden extras’. Our electrical repairs are usually charged on a ‘time spent’ basis, so how much you pay will depend on how long it takes to identify, locate, and repair the electrical fault. Electrician call-out rates for fault finding and small jobs start at £90+VAT for the first hour, and then £22.50+VAT per 15mins thereafter.
Standard costs for EICRs are £225+VAT for a report on a one-bedroom property, and £25+VAT per additional bedroom.
