Electrical Home Safety Inspections
When buying a home, you’ll want to know what, if any, electrical defects or safety hazards exist in your potential new home. Key items of concern are things like out-dated or unsafe electrical service panels, missing GFCI protection, aluminum wiring, and grounding problems. The peace of mind you will have knowing that a licensed electrician - a professional in the electrical field - inspected your home, is well worth the money. Mike Counsil Electric, Inc. can bring you that peace of mind at an affordable rate.
Whether you’re buying a home, living in an older home, or just moving in to a new home, here are some ideas that can help you. If you’re in the buying process, the things to look for are safety and repair aspects. Mike Counsil Electric, Inc. can offer you an inspection to check for these items. Although a home inspector does a very thorough generalized inspection, there is the potential for potential electrical problem areas to be missed. However, if you hire an experienced licensed electrician, your electrical inspection will be more thorough and you can get an estimate for the cost of the repairs at the same time.
At Mike Counsil Electric, Inc., we provide a thorough home electrical safety inspection. We closely follow all items and current electrical codes as specified by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The National Fire Protection Association has ensured that electrical installation codes are in place to promote safety in the home; any codes generally are in place to promote proper electrical system operation and prevention of electrical fires and the tragic loss of life and limb. We will go through the electrical wiring, electrical devices, and all electrical systems in your home or business to ensure that your electrical wiring is up to the NFPA standard. If we find something that is currently not up to this standard, it’s possible that we can offer you a price to correct the situation while on site in your home.
We will also go through your electrical service panel to check for proper connections, proper grounding, checking the main disconnect, as well as looking for potential damage due to age or from the elements. Other items we look for are proper grounding throughout your electrical wiring, and we conduct polarity checks at your electrical receptacles. We observe dimmers for excessive heat buildup and proper function. These are just examples of a few of the items that need to be checked.
We will provide you with a written report of our findings of the home electrical safety inspection as well. The home electrical safety inspection program offered by Mike Counsil Electric Inc. is just one of the many residential electrical services we offer.
