Whether you are planning on selling your home in the near future or are interested in making sure your property is safe for you and your family, it’s important to stay concerned with electrical safety inspections. You should be mindful of the following:
Home Age – Homes that are more than 40 years old frequently do not pass electrical safety inspections. From overcrowded wiring to electrical paneling, it is vital that you stay on top of anything that may cause a problem. You should also be concerned with electrical sockets that have not been upgraded in years and kitchen circuitry.
Lighting – Is your lighting installed correctly? You should go through all of your lighting fixtures to make sure that everything is working properly. Additionally, it’s a wise idea to upgrade your lighting so that everything is controlled by a simple switch on the wall, as opposed to lights that function with a pull chain hanging from the ceiling.
Kitchen Appliances – When it comes to the appliances in your kitchen, the refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, and microwave should all have a dedicated circuit. You frequently need to use all of these items at the same time, so having dedicated circuits means avoiding the risk of overloading your system.
