What Can You Expect During an Electrical Inspection?

During an electrical inspection, you can expect a comprehensive assessment of your home's wiring, panels, and electrical boxes to ensure they comply with current safety and building codes. Starting with a visual inspection, our inspectors verify that all wires are properly fastened and check the positioning and age of conduits and panels. Inspections also include system testing to ensure that ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets are functioning correctly.

Here's what most inspectors look for when assessing your home's electrical:

  • Hanging wires
  • Proper voltage, grounding, and surge protection
  • Updated smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Outdoor electrical outlets/lighting
  • Age of your main electrical panel
  • Condition of circuit breakers
  • Light switch functionality

How Often Should You Schedule Inspections?

Electrical inspections are scheduled based on the type of property, its electrical usage, and its history of problems. Generally speaking, residential properties should be inspected every 5 to 10 years, especially if the electrical system or home is over 20 years old.

Commercial and industrial facilities require more frequent inspections, with annual checks mandated in many different industries.

Additionally, when buying or selling a property, electrical inspections are essential before closing the sale as they can flag potential problems and verify that the new homeowner is aware of any previous or existing issues.

Electrical Panel Upgrades

Keeping an updated, code-compliant electrical panel is essential for maintaining your home's safety and sustaining a reliable power supply. As your home ages and technology advances, your older panel can become obsolete, increasing the risk of fire hazards and potentially limiting the use of new appliances or equipment. Upgrading your electrical panel is an essential home improvement that our team can help you with.

Our team manages the installation process with precision, from updating wiring and ensuring proper grounding to installing new circuit breaker panels. New electrical panels can improve your property's safety and support energy-efficient appliances. Modern panels can also help with energy consumption and eliminate inefficiencies.

Identifying faulty wiring in your home is crucial for staying safe and preventing the risk of electrical fires. Several indicators can alert you to wiring issues, and it's important to know the signs and contact a reputable electrician when you recognize them.

Some of the most common indicators of faulty wiring include the following:

  • Frequent circuit breaker trips
  • Blown fuses
  • Dimming/flickering lights
