What is PAT testing?

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is the examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use. Most electrical safety defects can be found by visual examination, but some types of defects can only be found by professional testing. PAT testing is strongly advised for all landlords of domestic dwellings and is suggested for all properties with appliances.

Using specialist testing equipment alongside visual inspections, our professional engineers test all portable appliances on the premises to ensure they are safe to use. Regular PAT testing in Milton Keynes ensures your legal requirements are met and occupants and appliances are safe.

Heath Electrical Services are NICEIC registered, meaning we can provide the PAT services and associated documentation you require with ease.

Do my home electrics need to be PAT tested?

While it is not the law for domestic homeowners to have PAT testing, we advise an annual PAT testing regimen to ensure the safety of your home. Although some faults can be detected through visual inspection, some cannot, which is why PAT testing is important to ensure that you find faults before they become dangerous.

On the other hand, landlords must have regular PAT testing to ensure that the appliances provided are safe. PAT testing also helps you to maintain your duty of care to tenants, so if an appliance does cause harm to the tenant, you can prove that you have done all you can to maintain safety. We recommend having PAT testing annually and when new tenants move into your property.
