L J Mullan Electrical, carried out an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) on an old property in Banbury. The photo attached is one of the main reasons why EICR’s are important to be carried out on your household. The decorative light switch requires an earth connection, however the majority of this house had old wiring in place to the lighting circuits so an earth wasn’t in place. These switches were located throughout and can be a danger, should a fault arise. An earthing conductor, or known as a CPC, would prevent the light switch becoming live under fault conditions so that you, or anyone else wouldn’t receive an electric shock should a fault occur.
Please contact L J Mullan Electrical for any enquires or a free quote to carry out an EICR to give you peace of mind.
