Every home in the United States must follow the rules dictated by the National Electric Code (NEC), as well as the rules set by local governments. This is to ensure everything is up to date and running safely.
These rules change frequently over time to match the electrical demands of each family. For example, the invention of more personal devices such as laptops and smartphones has led to new requirements in order to safely supply the right amount of power to each home.
To see if your home is in compliance with these regulations you can schedule for an electrical inspection to be performed. During this inspection the electrician will check things like outlet locations and then they will make sure you are not overloading any branch circuits which could lead to an electrical emergency.
It is important to keep your home up to code in order to keep everyone safe and everything running smoothly. If you are unsure if your home is following the proper regulations, contact us at (210) 899-2430 and schedule a home inspection today.
