EICR TESTING JOIN FORCES WITH MR ELECTRIC AND PROFESSIONAL PLUMBING CARE

qode interactive strata

eicrtesting.com have now joined forces with both Mr Electric and Professional Plumbing Care

Mr Electric Birmingham is in the same ownership as eicrtesting.com and the owners also have a 30% share in Professional Plumbing Care. With this in mind It made sense to handle calls and back office quotes invoicing etc. for all three companies from our main office. This gives a far better service with 6 call handlers we manage to answer over 90% of calls within 3 seconds. This also gives us the ability to offer all testing and rework for both gas and electric. All three companies share the same vision of giving the best customer experience possible. See the link to our Electric and Plumbing page on Checktrade. Any company can say they give great customer service but we eat sleep and drink customer service. See above links for both companies.

What is a boiler service

A boiler service should include:

  • Checking the boiler is functioning efficiently and safely
  • Cleaning filters, flues and pipes
  • Testing and pre-emptive fault-spotting

Example faults include blocked flues, dirty burners, gas safety valve mal-functioning, all these will be checked and tested during the service procedure.

How often should servicing be done?

Most manufacturers recommend annual boiler and central heating service. There are different types of boiler such as open flue (vertical, chimney-style) and balanced flue (horizontally, through the wall). The majority of carbon monoxide poisoning is with open flued appliances. Balanced flue appliances draw clean fresh air from outside rather than air from inside which may be contaminated with lint (carpet fibres, pet hairs etc ).

Boilers we service
We service all the major boiler types:

  • Condensing boilers extract more of the heat energy in the gas, oil, or any other fuel. Condensing boilers have now been made compulsory by the Building Regulations (with a few limited exceptions) when you replace a domestic central heating boiler.
  • Combi boilers heat the hot tap water as it is used. When a hot tap is turned on, the tap water flows directly through the boiler, the gas flames light and heat the water on it’s way to the hot tap. In contrast, non-combi boilers heat a tank of hot-tap water and store it ready for use later.
  • System boilers have an expansion vessel and the circulating pump built into them, saving the installer fitting these components separately.

We service all the major manufacturers:

  • Baxi
  • Bosch
  • Potterton
  • Gledhill PulsaCoil
  • Glow worm
  • Keston
  • Vaillant
  • Worcester
  • Worcester-Bosch

Are you paying for someone else’s electricity?

Our client was lighting his landlord’s premises, part of a 10,000sq ft warehouse.

A tenant in a 10,000 sq ft warehouse off Junction 3 of the M5, was unaware he was paying his landlord’s huge lighting bill. A regulatory five year check, part of his tenancy agreement, showed his landlord was only paying for the supply to electricity sockets, not the electric lighting supply. The £22,000 plus VAT remedial work necessary to meet regulatory standards, and insurance criterion identified that the tenant, had been paying for his landlords lighting, as the supply had not been properly separated.

 

A Track and Trace audit, ie tracking the electricity supply and tracing who is paying for it, carried out by one of eicrtesting.com Qualifying Supervisors, Matt, showed what was happening. Both landlord and tenant were unaware the landlord was being supplied with lighting free of charge! and the tenant controlled his landlord’s lighting!

 

As a result, the rent was renegotiated to compensate for the huge overspend, and the electricity supply separated.  Our client is now only paying for his own electricity usage. The payback has been immediate.

“This is not at all unusual” says Jeff Longley, Director of eicrtesting.com and Mr Electric, Birmingham.

“We have recently attended a property where the upstairs tenant was unaware he was paying for the electricity supplied to a Chinese Takeaway downstairs, until he turned his electricity off and found he had cut off the Takeaway’s electricity, and called us to sort the problem out.”

On another occasion, a client, a multi million pound company found it had overpaid £54,000 over a 5 year period, as the property hadn’t had the electricity supply professionally split.

This can easily happen when properties are let and sublet.
