Customer Guide to Electrical Testing

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.

Step 1 – Start date

Housing Worx will contact you to arrange a test date for your home and agree a convenient time.

Step 2 – During the work - your responsibilities

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.

Step 3 – What to expect when work starts

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.

Step 4 – After work is complete

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If you have smoke detectors, we will check that they are working and replace any which are out of date.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.
