    Advice on 'Cheaper' brand / for CU upgrades, PRS EICRs

    Hello, Would like some opinions. We have quite a few CU upgrades to complete. These are PRS properties, and looking down the list, a lot will be TT. Since Amd 3 we have used Hager CUs. Decent quality, also like the little meter tails clamp for TT. However, the cost is prohibitive, especially...

    BEAMA Calls For EICRs To Be Done In UK Residential Buildings Every 5 Years

    An interesting report. I'm in favour. My own opinion is that ten years between inspection and testing of domestic installations is too long, and that this period should be reduced to five years.

    A point of interest really, not having done that many EICRs and the few that I have done did not come with any problems.
