Home Electrical Inspections In Charleston

Electrical Inspections for Homeowners and Home Buyers

man conducting home electrical inspectionA thorough electrical panel inspection can reveal potential safety hazards before they endanger your family. If you aren’t sure about the history of your home, a professional assessment can tell you whether any upgrades were performed by a licensed professional or an unqualified handyman. If you’re shopping for a home, remember that most home inspections only offer a general overview of the property’s condition. To get the full picture before you buy, have a professional electrician check each part of the home’s wiring, including the following components.

  • Circuit breakers
  • Electrical outlets
  • Fixtures and switches
  • GFCI/AFCI protection
  • Smoke detectors
  • Wiring connections

Scheduling an electrical inspection is an easy way to protect your biggest investment and to guarantee your family’s safety. If your house has electrical problems, you should know so that you can have them repaired.

Common Electrical Code Violations

Older homes in Charleston and Mount Pleasant rarely meet today’s sophisticated electrical standards, but that doesn’t mean that the components have to be unsafe. Regardless of the building’s age, here are a few red flags that we frequently see during home inspections.

  • Improperly tapped breakers and overburdened outlets can lead to overheating and fire hazards.
  • Bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and outdoor receptacles should be equipped with GFCIs.
  • Major appliances and outlets used for microwaves, hair dryers and high-draw devices should be on a dedicated circuit with the correct amperage rating.
  • New light fixtures shouldn’t be connected to old wires since they operate at a higher temperature. Your electrician can correct this problem by installing new wire.
  • Older light switches often aren’t wired to a neutral line, which is needed for certain features, such as motion-detection sensors and dimmers.
  • Illegal splices with exposed wires are one of the worst code violations. All junctions and terminations should be safely housed in a code-compliant junction box.

Preventing Fire Hazards With Home Inspections

Electrical faults are the third most common cause of house fires. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, small appliances that are plugged into overloaded outlets spark more than 5,300 fires annually. All in all, residential electrical fires cause $1.3 billion in damage every year. You can dramatically reduce this risk by having your home’s electrical system inspected and by repairing problems promptly.
