Wiring Inspections – The Benefits

Electrical systems typically work without problems and often go unnoticed until the day an issue occurs, such as a tripped breaker causing the house to lose power. Taking preventive maintenance steps can help detect and fix problems before they ever happen. A wiring inspection is one form of preventive maintenance for a home’s electrical wiring and circuits.

For a new construction, a renovation, or after adding new circuits to a home or a building, wiring inspections are necessary to ensure that the work is done properly and in accordance with local regulations. A licensed electrician is the right person to hire to conduct an electrical inspection.

What does the inspection usually include?

A thorough electrical inspection will check for:

  • Any exposed wiring that may pose a danger
  • Firmly and correctly mounted electrical panels
  • Corrosion that may lead to short circuits
  • Correctly rated breakers or fuses protecting all circuits
  • Overloaded circuits

In a nutshell, the inspection will determine if the property’s electrical system adheres to the laws and regulations enacted to ensure that the system is safe and adequate for the load it will take.

A wiring inspection is also a good way to get an accurate blueprint of the electrical system in your house. This can help you understand the ins and outs of your own house, along with making it easier to find problems within the wiring and circuits.

Homes and businesses can also benefit from periodic inspections by ensuring that the existing wiring is sufficient to handle upgraded or additional appliances and equipment.

Remember, when it comes to electrical systems, safety should go hand in hand with efficiency. Accidents have occurred due to incorrectly installed electrical wiring or appliances. A wiring inspection by a licensed electrician with the proper training can help to prevent such mishaps.
