  • You might be wondering, “How often is the National Electrical Code (NEC) Updated?” Every three years, the nation’s leading electricians and engineers put together a new version of the NEC. First published in 1897, the NEC sets the standard for safe electrical system installation, design, and wiring. The most recent edition of the NEC was released in 2020. Electrical code update services are when a professional electrician changes your current electrical system to meet the latest electrical code standards. Mr. Electric of Birmingham will perform a thorough, multi-point inspection of your home to ensure that you understand every update your home needs to meet the current safety standards.

  • Since the electrical code updates regularly, it can be tough for the average homeowner to stay up to date with all the changes. Most electrical code update classes are 15 hours long, but you may not need to know all the information. For instance, a new section about EV chargers may not apply to you if you do not own an electric vehicle. Luckily, our team continually studies the latest version of the electrical code, so you don’t have to. Let us help you understand the parts of the NEC that apply to you and your home.
