Upgrades to your existing commercial electrical system

Whitestar upgrades your premises with minimal downtime. We have experience working with listed or historically important buildings. We ensure you comply with all relevant regulations. Our eye for detail saves you time and money in the long term, as you reduce the change of major electrical issues.
Electrical testing and inspection (EICR)
Every electrical installation deteriorates over time with use. Your business is responsible for maintaining and testing your electrical systems, so that users’ safety is not at risk.
Whitestar offers a full range of electrical testing and inspection services. Both are essential for your business safety. A large volume of our electrical testing and inspection service is carried out in or near our location in Hemel Hempstead.
Whitestar recommends you carry out consistent regular checks as well as the ones required by legislation. In our years of experience, small, regular fixes are far less costly than a major issue.
An EICR is an Electrical Installation Condition Report. It’s a mandatory safety requirement. Whitestar can ensure you comply, by carrying out several stages of testing and a close inspection of your building’s electrical system and wiring.
Usually, an EICR is required every 5 years.
In general, inspection happens before testing, although the two services are linked. Testing and inspection both follow a fixed process and procedure.
Sometimes a visual inspection alerts us that work is needed. Among other checks, an electrical inspection will highlight if there are any safety risks, such as shock, damage or fire hazard. Our engineers can identify any existing faulty or outdated installations. We can confirm that installations comply with relevant standards.
Electrical testing requires specialist equipment and is done in a specific order. Regular testing saves money in the longer term, as it helps discover problems before they happen.
Whitestar can help you follow all the latest legislation, regulations and standards dealing with electrical compliance. By law, all electrical equipment and installations must be regularly maintained.
It’s a complex area and no business wants to fall foul of the regulations. Failure to comply with your responsibilities can lead to significant fines.
The key to saving time and money on electrical compliance is to set up a robust, well-organised maintenance programme.
No electrical system is immune from occasional defects. Keeping your systems well-maintained means that together we can spot any minor issues before they become major ones.
