What Does an Electrical Safety Inspection Include?
In order to determine the value of a safety inspection, it's important to know just what will be inspected and what an experienced and trained technician will be looking for. A proper inspection will cover every point along the route of your wiring from the power lines attached to your property all the way to the last outlet or last switch. With that in mind here are few key areas that we inspect. This is not a comprehensive list, but rather, it showcases the highlights.
Panels - The panel may be the most important component in your electrical system. It is the hub of all electric flow that comes into your home. It both controls the amount of power that flows and also distributes it throughout each room, outlet, and light switch. In many cases an upgrade is necessary for an older, due to the amount of power required by modern technology.
Outlets and Light Switches - We inspect every single receptacle and light switch to make sure they are prime condition and operating at peak performance. We look for overheating or burned areas.
Wiring - The type and overall condition of the wiring is traced and assessed for breaks, tears, burns or overheating damage. We also check to make sure there is proper insulation and protection throughout.
Fuses - We check to make sure that all fuses are working, in condition, and the appropriate size in order to prevent a fire.
Codes and Requirements - We give you an overall assessment to make sure that your home is up to date with current city and state codes, and that it also meets the requirements of your insurance policy in order to avoid, fines, penalties, or an increase in your insurance coverage.
Pre-Sale or Pre-Purchase Report - If you are considering buying or selling a new home, a report can help you determine what needs to be done - if anything - prior to an agreement of selling or purchasing a home.
