Fault finding.


Alpha Services currently offers inspection services though out Devon & Cornwall. The key to effective inspection and testing services is to agree the limitations with the client.

This is important as this enables us to carry out an inspection and test which meets the requirements for which the report is being issued and causes the minimum disruption to the client.

Effective periodic testing is a way of performing preventative maintenance. Examples of this are generally found on commencement of a visual inspection. Faults can be identified in the early stages and rectified before they develop into more serious faults and/or cause further cost implications.

As we inspect the distribution boards and switchgear we ensure sound electrical connection, over time and usage electrical connections can work loose and can cause faults. After a thorough visual inspection is carried out electrical testing proceeds. Each circuit is subjected to electrical testing to verify its adequacy to protect the end user from electrocution and to verify its disconnection under fault conditions.

If we identify any areas which require attention we will advise you in the report and together implement a plan to rectify any remedial work. Together with a professional on site, smartly dressed electrical team ready to provide you with a smooth effective service including any out of hours work required, you will be issued with a top quality computer generated report.

In accordance with the regulations from 1st January 2011 Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICR) will be issued.

Dependant upon the usage of a property/building it is imperative that periodic testing of the electrical installation is carried out. The purpose of periodic testing is to ensure compliance with BS7671.

In most cases it is used as a way of preventing faults. The main areas we concentrate on to ensure safety within the work place are fire risk and electric shock risk. Continued periodic testing is a way of improving safety within the workplace and reducing the risk of electric shock to the end user. It is also a way of satisfying insurance requirements. Many people do not realise that there insurance may be invalid if they do not possess a current periodic certificate.

We can advise on the recommended testing intervals for periodic testing.

We provide a hassle free service tailored to your requirements. Out of hours work can be arranged to suit your needs to minimize downtime. In some cases we have carried out the report in sections over a number of years to reduce the costs.

Free site surveys are carried out to determine the initial cost of the report and the duration of the inspection and testing process and the manner in which it will be approached.
