Electrical Inspection

When buying a home, everyone knows you need to hire a home inspector. Home inspectors will catch basic electrical issues, but do you want to move into a home that was just “basically” inspected? Hiring an independent electrician to provide an electrical inspection has the potential to save you money and offer peace of mind.  An electrical inspection is imperative for the safety of your potential home.

A residential electrical inspection by Quality Electrical Contractors includes a variety of services.  Our contractors will inspect the electrical panel, wiring, and the fuse box in your home.

Your electrical panel is a useful but dangerous piece of equipment. A homeowner, due to the risk of electric shock, should never do inspections of the electrical panel. When we inspect your electrical panel, we are ensuring that the wiring is up-to-code, tidy, and clearly labeled. We are ensuring your panel and wires are free of corrosion and defects. Along with the electrical panel, we inspect the fuse box to make sure each switch is properly aligned.

During your electrical inspection, we are checking that the wiring in your potential home is up-to-code. This is particularly important in older homes where aluminum wiring was popular, and is now considered troublesome. Only an electrician can safety and thoroughly inspect this type of wiring system.

At Quality Electrical Contractors, we want nothing but the best for our customers. We want you to feel safe and confident in the home you are considering. Having a professional electrical inspection will give you the confidence you need to move forward with your new home.
