The internet has made it more difficult than ever to distinguish the genuine professionals from those with a flashy appearance – so how do you know whether you can trust an electrician to carry out that all-important electrical work in your home? Thankfully, accreditation’s exist that can supersede even the most professional-looking website to help you find nothing less than the best.
For over 50 years the Nation Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contractors (NICEIC) has been testing the technical competence of electricians. There is a wide range of benefits to using an approved contractor, like us as London Electrician 24/7; in our latest article we explore a few of the reasons why it’s essential to utilise an NICEIC approved electrician for any work.
The number one reason for using an NICEIC approved contractor is safety. Under the accreditation scheme contractors undergo a rigorous assessment process, covering a sample of their work, their premises, documentation and equipment. Approved contractors are then re-assessed on a regular basis to ensure continued compliance. This means that you can be sure people like us are monitored to the highest safety standards and will be able to carry out all manner of tasks.
One of the main benefits of being NICEIC registered means that we have access to a wide range of support services so we can offer our customers expert industry technical advice. This ensures that we can complete any type of electrical work in the most efficient manner for our customers.
Cheapest doesn’t always mean the best; if someone is producing sub-standard work around your home it could prove costly to get it rectified. The NICEIC protects against this through the Platinum Promise and independent complaints procedure which means that we at London Electrical 24/7 have to maintain a high quality of work and ensure that our customers are satisfied.
Insurance backed warranty
The purpose of the warranty is to protect consumers should any work be found not to comply with the Building Regulations under circumstances where the contractor is no longer in business to undertake the necessary remedial work. The warranty is valid for a period of six years from the date of completion of the original work.
All of these benefits come as standard when using an approved contractor for your electrical work. At London Electrical 24/7 we are NICEIC registered and trained to the 17th edition and holder of the Part P award which means that we have all the experience to tackle any project.
