Your home’s electrical system plays a crucial role in protecting your family and anyone who buys your home. About 51,000 home fires each year are the result of a malfunction in the electrical system. When a residential fire begins, it can take anywhere from just a few minutes to an hour for a house to burn down completely. The best way to prevent a fire from happening is with a home electrical inspection.
An electrical inspection is performed by a licensed electrician or electrical contractor. The inspector then examines several segments of your home’s electrical system to make sure everything meets local and state code requirements, and suits the power demand needs for your family.
The Electrical Safety Foundation International, an organized non profit dedicated to promoting electrical safety at home, recommends an electrical inspection for the following conditions:
Your home is 40 years old or older
Your home has gone through a major renovation
You’ve added major appliances within the last 10 years
Before purchasing or selling a home
If your home is not meeting your family’s power demand
