What’s Included in an Electrical Safety Inspection?

Your electrical system is complex, and no two homes are exactly the same. If your home is on the water, we might need to perform a boat dock electrical safety inspection. If you have a pool, we may need to check the appliances and electronics near it. So, a thorough electrical safety inspection can include various different types of testing and diagnostic services. When we finish your inspection, your electrician will give you a detailed checklist that explains all the updates your electrical system needs. We will make sure to point out any repairs or upgrades that are an urgent matter of safety. Some of the things we might do during an electrical safety inspection include:

  • Checking your grounding systems
  • Testing your smoke detectors
  • Replacing batteries in smoke detectors
  • Testing carbon monoxide detectors
  • Replacing batteries in carbon monoxide detectors
  • Inspecting your electrical panel for labeling and appropriate capacity
  • Checking the wattage of your light bulbs
  • Ensuring switches and outlets work properly
  • Checking for ground fault circuit interrupting (GFCI) outlets
  • Checking for arc fault circuit interrupting (AFCI) outlets
  • Assessing safety and security lighting
  • Examining your surge protectors
  • Checking your overcurrent protection
  • Inspecting all outdoor outlets and fixtures
  • Securing all junction boxes in attics and crawlspaces

Do I Really Need an Electrical Safety Inspection?

If you don’t have any noticeable problems with your electrical system, you might be wondering if you even need an electrical safety inspection. That’s not the case. With electrical issues, it’s essential to catch them before they become noticeable to you. You might not be aware of an arcing wire or a faulty surge protector until someone gets shocked. However, there are more benefits to getting an electrical safety inspection than just increasing your home’s safety. Some of the other benefits of getting an electrical home safety inspection include:

  • Reducing your energy consumption
  • Catching problems before they turn into more costly repairs
  • Potentially increasing your home’s value
  • Cutting your monthly energy bill
  • Peace of mind

How Often Do I need an Electrical Safety Inspection?

At a minimum, you should have your home’s electrical system inspected every three years. The electrical safety code updates every three years, so it’s essential to have a safety inspection to make sure your home is up to the latest code’s standards. Most electricians would recommend safety inspections more frequently than that, especially for older homes. You might want to consider getting an electrical safety inspection when:

  • Purchasing a home
  • Renovating or remodeling a home
  • Adding a new appliance
  • You have a home that is more than 40 years old
