Why Choose Us? When you’re looking for Reliable & Qualified Electricians in Preston and throughout Lancashire and you want the work Guaranteed, read the following …

 

You can Trust us to work Safely and Legally

It’s very important to remember that all electrical work must comply with British Standard 7671 for reasons of safety. Indeed, many jobs must now be notified to the Planning Authority’s Building Control Dept, to comply with what is known as ‘Part P’ of the Building Regulations to remain legal. Currelec are Electricians in Preston, carrying out work throughout Lancashire and are fully qualified to BS7671. Our work is regularly inspected by an independent body – to make sure we’re doing our job properly and ensure your safety. Not every Electrician you encounter will have taken the considerable time and invested the large sums to achieve this standard, but you really do have to ask yourself ‘Why not?. Electricity is inherently dangerous and should only ever be installed and maintained by people who are competent and who continually maintain their qualifications and insurance.

 

What is all this ‘Part P’ anyway?
The Building Regulations are divided into sections, which are lettered from ‘A’ to ‘P’ at the time of writing. Each section deals with an aspect of Building Work. For example ‘Part F’ deals with Ventilation, ‘Part B’ is Fire Safety and ‘P’ is Electrical Safety. If an Electrician is a member of a ‘Competent Person Self-Certification Scheme’, (just as Gas & Boiler Fitters are on the ‘Gas Safe Register’), he/she can handle all this automatically when they complete the work. They carry out the work in a compliant way and self-certify the job to Building Control. This process is straightforward and requires no input from, or further costs to, you, the customer. However, householders and unregistered Tradesmen must submit plans and an application fee to Building Control before work starts. This option is obviously both expensive and time consuming. You might think this process can be skipped, as who will ever find out? Well, whilst ‘Part P’ hasn’t been very well advertised up to now, it is becoming so and likely to gather pace. Work can come to the attention of Building Control in lots of ways, who can then check the planning status of that work. It is an offence to fail to comply and pleading ignorance is no defence. Ultimately, they can demand the work is demolished! Also when your property changes hands, the subject is increasingly likely to come up during searches & enquiries. So, whilst you may not agree with it, it needs to be done and the best way to do it is through an Electrician who is a member of such a ‘Competent Person Self-Certification Scheme’.
