Would You Go More than a Year Without Changing the Oil in Your Car? Well, Your Home Electrical Wiring Deserves the Same Kind of TLC.
If you’re buying or selling a home, a whole-house wiring inspection is a no-brainer. But shouldn’t you have it done periodically, just to play it safe? For your added safety and peace of mind, it’s positively essential.
Here are just a few of things we look for when conducting a home electrical wiring inspection:
Are there ground fault circuit interruptors (GFCIs) for the bathroom, kitchen, garage, basement and outdoors?…these should be located everywhere electrical shock is most likely to occur.
Is there any exposed or frayed wiring?
Are all electrical panels correctly labeled and secured to their mounting surfaces?
Is your electrical panel interior free of rust and corrosion?
Are all circuits properly protected with the right size circuit breakers or fuses?
A lot of what we look for is obvious. And a lot is “stuff” you most likely would never think of. Our advice? Give your home the same care you would your car, and contact us today for a whole-house wiring inspection.
Whole House Blue Printing
This is a really neat item and a great plus to selling your house. Have you ever gone to your electrical panel looking for a specific breaker and found that it is not marked correctly? We can go through the house and trace every circuit, draw a blueprint of your home, mark it on every outlet, switch, light, and device, and put a circuit number next to each item. We will also draw up a new panel directory. Impress any buyer with an electrical diagram of your home.
