Housing Worx carry out tests to ensure that your home has a safe and up to date electrical supply.
We keep up to date information about the condition of homes, which allows us to prioritise the work we will do. If we are planning to carry out any work on your home, we will write to you telling you what work we will be doing and when it will happen.
Housing Worx will contact you to arrange a test date for your home and agree a convenient time.
Please keep children and pets away from areas where testing or work is taking place.
Be aware of trip hazards and do not touch any materials or power tools.
You do not have to be at home for the duration of the testing. We can work in your home throughout the day and ensure your home is secure when we leave, but it is important that we have access on the agreed date.
The electrician will carry out a visual check on the fuse board and all electrical outlets to ensure they are in a safe condition, and test circuits to ensure there are no faults.
The check only takes two hours and involves testing all the electrics in your home.
The electrician will ensure that they leave no mess behind when they leave.
If you have smoke detectors, we will check that they are working and replace any which are out of date. A new fuse board may be installed if required, and you may also receive a new low-energy bathroom light fitting.
Housing Worx will ask you to fill in a customer satisfaction form. It is important for us to receive your feedback.
