The Peace Of Mind Offered By NAPIT Electricians
When you're having your home's electrical system overhauled, you want to be sure that the work is carried out by experts who know what they're doing. This is why it's always a wise decision to rely on the services of NAPIT electrical contractors. (Current Electrical is covered by NAPIT.) Here's a basic rundown of the advantages NAPIT has to offer.
How Competent Person Schemes Protect You
Since 2005, the UK has set multiple "Competent Person Schemes" in place to ensure that all new construction and renovation work complies with the appropriate safety regulations and building codes. This arrangement places the burden of documentation, notification, and inspection on the craftsmen who actually execute the work. This means your obligations as the owner of the home are minimal. Competent Person Schemes are operated to help electricians and other contractors meet their regulatory requirements. NAPIT (the National Association of Professional Inspectors and Testers) is a scheme that endorses the work of expert workers and contractors in a variety of building trades, not just electrical work.
Why Contractors Choose NAPIT
Because it extends coverage to many different disciplines, NAPIT is the scheme of choice for contractors and building companies that offer a wide range of services to their clients. Relying on one organisation to handle all of their testing and regulatory needs simplifies contractors' workflow and allows them to keep their costs low. NAPIT also aggressively pursues new disciplines like the Microgeneration Certification Scheme and the Green Deal Certification Scheme so that their member companies can offer clients a full range of expert services.
The Benefits Of Employing NAPIT Electrical Contractors
As a homeowner, relying on NAPIT electricians is a great way to ensure that all new electrical work done on your home is safe, reliable, and long-lasting. Every NAPIT company will give you a NAPIT Compliance Guarantee on their work when the job is finished. This makes the trade organization itself responsible for rectifying any faults in the electrical work (at no cost to you) if your original contractor is unable to fix the problems. NAPIT's Compliance Guarantee is good for six years following the completion of the work it covers. In a rapidly-changing industry where individual companies form and dissolve quickly, it's good to have a long-lasting authority guaranteeing the work done on your behalf.
Working with well-qualified professionals is always a wise decision when it comes to improving your home. You can check up on any contractor's credentials by looking them up through the Competent Persons Register (http://www.competentperson.co.uk/) or by checking with NAPIT directly.
