Home Electrical Inspection
FAQs About Home Electrical Inspections
At The Neighborhood Electrician, we know that many homeowners aren’t familiar with what a home electrical inspection is or why and when it should be done. To help you with gaining a better understanding of this process, we thought we would share a few commonly asked questions:
When should I have a home electrical inspection done?
We recommend that you have one done before closing on a house and then annually after that. Even a newly built home can have electrical issues that should be resolved. In addition, you should call if you notice any signs of a problem, including frequently tripped circuits, flickering lights, or odd odors or sounds.
Why should I have a home electrical inspection?
Any number of things can result in electrical system damage or an overload that could cause electrical failure, resulting in problems for an electronic device or appliance or even putting your home in danger due to a fire. Gain peace of mind with an inspection and resolve any problems before something bad happens.
What kinds of things are you looking for during a home electrical inspection?
We are looking for electrical work that doesn’t meet code requirements for safety, overloaded circuits, electrical panel issues, lack of grounding, outlet issues, fixture issues, wiring issues, and pretty much anything that could pose a hazard.
Can you repair anything that you find is wrong?
Yes, we will give you a full report and then provide you with a quote for any repairs that are needed. We will answer all your questions and then leave the decision up to you as to how you want to proceed. We can also go over any electrical upgrades or installations that you might be considering.
