Why is Residential Electrical Inspection Important?

There are several important reasons why having an electrical inspection performed is necessary. Here are some of the more typical ones:

Electrical shocks – Envision casually touching an electrified appliance and getting an electrical current coursing through you. While this might not be life-threatening, it can lead to other disastrous effects. Beyond possible personal pain, the appliance can be completely broken. A preemptive electrical inspection could identify and fix these wiring issues before those situations occur.

Surge protection – Depending on the region, this can be a frequent occurrence, especially with storms. An electrical surge can result in shorted circuits or damaged appliances. An electrical inspector will be able to identify and check wiring throughout your house that may lead to this problem.

Electrical fires – Quite often an electrical short circuit is responsible for house fires. Loose wires or cables can be reviewed and pointed out by a formal electrical inspection and the inspector will provide you with options to fix them.
