Our homes need regular electrical checkups to ensure that everything is running smoothly and in a safe condition. As the year’s pass, the electrical components in your home will deteriorate. This is why the National Electrical Code requires periodic inspections of homes to prevent fires, electrocution and similar disasters.
It is recommended that you have your home inspected every ten years. You should also have this process done when you are moving to a new home, adding an appliance and planning to renovate your home.
An electrical safety inspection is carried out by a licensed electrical professional and usually takes several hours.
They will check the condition of your electrical components including the following:
After the inspection, the electrician will give you a comprehensive inspection report, which indicates any deterioration, defects, and damages that need to be addressed immediately. The report will declare a safety verdict: satisfactory or unsatisfactory. If the defects are deemed dangerous and unsatisfactory, repairs will have to be done immediately to keep your home safe.
