Home Rewires, a trading name of HC Electrical, is a NAPIT approved electrical contractor offering you peace mind that all work carried out is completed safely and to legally required standards.
NAPIT is one of the leading Government authorised and United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) accredited membership scheme operators in the building services and fabric sector. There are currently more than 10,000 NAPIT registered installers in the electrical, heating, plumbing, ventilation & air-conditioning, microgeneration and building fabric trades across the UK domestic, commercial and industrial markets.
For consumers this means access to installers who have demonstrated their competence and undertaken to comply with the requirements of particular schemes with regard to quality, safety and compliance.
Responsibility for compliant and safe work lies with the installer; NAPIT’s role is to monitor each scheme member and audit that they are fulfilling this responsibility. Installers do not carry out work on behalf, or under the control, of NAPIT and the extent to which inspections and audits are carried out is determined by the various scheme owner organisations.
Why choose a NAPIT member for your electrical work
It is important that you get work done by competent people working for businesses who are committed to quality, safety and customer care. NAPIT certificated scheme members have demonstrated their competence, they hold the necessary insurances and have the right processes and procedures to assure compliance.
NAPIT registered installers are:
- Able to complete work safely and to legally required standards
- Regularly assessed to provide assurance of their ongoing competence
- Capable of working to the very latest health and safety regulations
- Able to provide you with the necessary certificates to demonstrate the regulatory compliance of the work they do. These certificates may be requested by tenants, insurance providers and solicitors and may be needed if you are looking to let or come to sell your property.
It is important to know that you are in safe hands. Installers certificated by NAPIT are committing themselves to comply with requirements that include rectification of faults and effective handling of complaints.
Responsibility for compliance always lies with the installer you engaged. The schemes require that installers warrant relevant work for a period of at least 6 years, within which time they must return and rectify any non-compliant matters that are attributable to their installation work.
The installer should have made this commitment to you in writing in their quotation/contract paperwork. You may not be protected if you enter into an arrangement with an installer without such details being provided in writing.
If a problem arises and the installer is no longer certificated within the scheme, but they are still in business, it is this contractual commitment that protects you as they remain obliged to comply with the contract with you, irrespective of their certification status.
