Electrical Safety Inspections
Electrical problems can be a huge inconvenience to you and your family, as well as an interruption of your daily life. But actually, it’s much more serious than that. Often, electrical problems can pose dangerous threats to the safety of you, your family, and your home. If any part of your electrical system isn’t kept in great condition, it could cause serious damage to your property, or it may result in serious injuries. Still, electrical safety inspections are often neglected by homeowners. They don’t see a reason to call in a professional before they’ve noticed a problem with their electricity. But if you don’t have regular safety inspections performed, serious problems could go unnoticed until they become serious threats. Electrical safety inspections are one of the most important maintenance procedures homeowners need, and often they’re also the most overlooked.
The Benefits of Electrical Safety Inspections
Our professional electricians recommend that you have a professional perform an electrical safety inspection at least once every:
- Ten years for an owner-occupied homeowners
- Five years for a rented home
- One year for a home with a swimming pool
You should also have an electrical inspection any time you’re planning on purchasing, selling, renting out any building.
Regular, periodic inspections will help make sure that your electrical system is safe to use, which is important since it’s almost constantly being used. An inspection will reveal whether or not any of your circuits or other electrical equipment are overloaded, find any potential shock risks and fire hazards, fine any electrical work that is faulty, and highlight any lack of earthing or bonding. An electrical safety inspection will also test your wiring and any other fixed electrical equipment to make sure that they are completely safe.
Always Hire a Professional
Remember: you should only ever hire a licensed professional to inspect your home’s electrical system. Only someone with the proper training and experience will be able to determine whether or not there are any safety hazards within your electrical system. And only a professional will know the codes and standards that your electrical system needs to meet. Our experts will check your wiring system and its condition, all of your sockets and outlets, and the extent of any wear and tear, damage, or other deterioration.
