Need Help? Have a Question?

The electrical system is the nerve center of your home or business. It sends power to your lights, HVAC system, appliances, and devices — the items you use daily and take for granted that they will fire up on demand. When the power is down, it’s pretty difficult to function. That’s why it’s important to schedule an electrical system inspection by a licensed electrician, especially if your home or business is an older structure. The electrician will examine the wiring, circuitry, outlets, and other system components to ensure that they are updated and operating safely and make recommendations for upgrades and replacements as warranted.

An electrical inspection may seem like an unnecessary expense but weigh that against the loss of property or life due to a fire or other electrical-related failure or incident. Here are some advantages of having an electrical inspection.

Safety

Electrical fires cause millions of dollars in damage to homes and businesses annually. An electrical inspection can pinpoint frayed and outdated wiring, overloaded circuits, and other hazards.

Lower energy costs

When an outdated electrical system is trying to power more than its capacity, it can result in higher energy costs. Upon completing an inspection, an electrician can make recommendations for upgrades that can improve overall system efficiency.

Code compliance

This is particularly important with a commercial structure, especially an older one. It’s important that your electrical system is up to code, especially if you are planning to remodel or expand.

Electrical Inspection Before Selling Your home.

If you plan to sell your home, you should schedule an electrical inspection and make any necessary repairs before listing your house. It’s better to do it before a home inspection is required by a potential buyer.
