Get the Most Out of Your Electrical Inspection

When you’re considering an electrical inspection, you want to ensure that you speak with a certified electrician that is able to come in and check out all of the components of the home. You want to work with someone that can easily tell you what the issue is, and even repair it, if necessary. Consider some of these tips and tricks when it comes to making the most of the electrical inspection you’re getting done inside your home.

Are Your Electrical Components Up to Code?

This is the very first thing you want to know. Whether you just purchased the home, or had another electrician did the work, or even if you did it; the electrical components should be up to code and you should make sure that you had the necessary permits to put them up. This is something that the electrician should be able to tell you, since they know the current electricity codes for the area.

How Safe is Your Electrical System?

Safety is essential, and electrical components can be dangerous if they’re not handled properly. You should always have the electrician check to see how well your electrical systems are holding up, and if everything is up to code and is not going to start a fire if you walk away from it. You do not want to turn something on only to know that the wire is going to fray and burn.

Is the Voltage Enough to Power Your Home?

Sometimes larger homes that have been upgraded with more electronic components are never upgraded. The panel should be able to easily hold all of the power that is within them. This is important for any portion of the home and when you have the electrician come in to do the inspection, you can have them check the voltage of the house, and find out if it is enough for the home. Certain appliances in the home need specific amounts of voltage in order to run. You have to ensure that each of the outlets is providing this amount of electricity.

Double Check Your Electricities Effectiveness

Once the repairs, replacements or inspection is done, you want to check the effectiveness of your electricity going through the home. Make sure to check all of the lights, outlets, etc. to keep them in the best working order out there. Without this being done, you might find it difficult to continue using these parts of the home if they do not work. While you want to ensure that your home is more energy efficient, knowing everything works is a good thing too.

Speak with our electricians to find out how we can make the most of your electrical inspection, and ensure that you’re ready to go.

Great experience with Barney and Steve! They added an outlet in my garage and fixed an issue in my kitchen. Nice guys. Came to the house when they said they would. Even went above and beyond and changed the light bulb in my garage door opener. Will definitely use them again.

Barney previously replaced our very worn out electric panel and was efficient and professional. He also came out on short notice Christmas Eve morning to repair an issue that left us without power in a portion of the kitchen -- just in time to welcome our company. Barney is quick to respond, very knowledgeable and performs quality work. We will continue to use Barney for our future electrical work.
