What Is a Home Electrical Safety Inspection?
A whole home electrical safety inspection is when a professional electrician comes into your home to examine your entire electrical system. This inspection ensures all of your wires, systems, and components are up to code and working as they should. These inspections are also essential for finding significant issues that could put you at risk for electrical shocks or electrical fires.
When Would You Need an Electrical Inspection?
While everyone should periodically have their electrical systems inspected by a professional, many experts agree the best time to have one performed is when you purchase a home, renovate your home, or if you add new, power-hungry appliances such as an air conditioner or washer/dryer to ensure it’s not putting too heavy a load on the system. Electrical safety inspections make sure the wiring is safe and in good condition, and ensure the system is capable of handling the loads without failing.
