EICR Testing and Report, PAT Testing and Report, and new immersion heater switches.

Verified Review

Tristan's work is always excellent and well thought through - we have used his services on many occasions over the last 5 years - including installation of a new electric heating system. He sometimes needs chasing when setting up appointments etc., but he has helped us out in emergencies. We would highly recommend him.
