What is Electrical Fault Finding?

Electrical fault finding involves systematic diagnosis of electrical systems to identify and resolve issues such as short circuits, lighting, power issues and more. We use specialised tools and techniques to resolve electrical issues and keep your home safe.

How Electrical Fault Finding is Performed

Fault finding should only be performed by qualified experts. That’s why all of our engineers are NICEIC qualified. Here’s how we do what we do:

Assessment – Our electricians will conduct a visual inspection of the impacted area, to get an idea of what might need a closer look.

Testing – Using specialised equipment like multimeters and voltage testers, we’ll test the various components of your electrical systems to find the fault.

Isolation – Our electricians will isolate specific circuits or components to pinpoint the source of the fault. 

Repair – Once the fault is identified, our electricians repair or replace the faulty components as necessary. This may involve repairing damaged wiring, replacing defective switches or outlets, or addressing issues with appliances or fixtures.

Verification – We’ll conduct thorough testing of the electrical system to ensure that the fault has been resolved and that all components are functioning properly.

Reporting – We’ll document our findings, including details of the fault, repairs performed, and any recommendations for further action.
