If you are doing any sort of home renovation or moving to a new home, it’s recommended that you get an electrical inspection. Even adding a new major appliance is a good reason to get your electrical wiring checked out. An electrical inspection will ensure that your home is safe and can support the electrical load you need. So what sorts of things will your electrician check for during an electrical inspection?
The primary purpose of the electrical inspection is to make sure your home is safe. The electrician will be looking for any faulty wiring, outdated fuses, exposed wires and things of this nature. Updating any wiring problems will not only give you peace of mind that your home can handle the electrical load you put on it, but will also increase the resale value of your home. Labeling wires with the electrician will make any further installations far easier and safer.
An electrical inspection will also ensure that your home is up to code. The electrician will check things like if the electrical boxes are flush with the wall and if they are big enough to hold all of the wires and anything else that needs to be in the box. Outlets and light switches have to be installed at specific heights, and there are special requirements for wet areas like kitchens and bathrooms.
There are hundreds of other specific things your electrician will check for. All of this ensures your safety. The next time you are in need of an electrical inspection, give us a call at Quality Electrical Contractors to make sure the job is done right.
