How Often Should I Schedule An Electrical Safety Inspection?
As a local Plano electrician, we understand how busy life gets and that it's easy to forget about something that seems to be working right. Yet, all too often, a homeowner is unaware that they need to get a professional inspection done every five to seven years or so. We recommend getting an electrical safety inspection if it's been more than five years since you've had your last one.
Reasons To Get Electrical Safety Inspections
If you've lived in your Plano area home for the last twenty years, you most likely know how many times it went through an electrical safety inspection. If you haven't lived in your house that long, you may not know when or if a qualified electrician has inspected the wiring, breaker box, and other parts.
Plus, there's no telling if someone in the past tried to repair a problem or do an upgrade but made a mistake. We have seen evidence of wiring mistakes during the inspections we perform. Remember, you never know if a past owner, their tenant, or an inexperienced electrician tried to make electrical repairs or modifications that weren't correct.
For this reason, many home buyers get an electrical inspection in addition to a full home inspection before they sign their final contract. Those who get both understand that a home inspector doesn't have the same extensive industry experience and training as a licensed and certified electrical inspector.
Here are some reasons to make sure that a full electrical inspection gets done on your Plano home's wiring, electrical panel, and other components.
- Old wiring may be unable to support your household's power demand.
- Your electrical panel may be outdated and unable to function safely.
- There could be old wiring with decaying insulation.
- You may need GFCI outlets installed for safety in areas near water.
- Past electrical work may be wrong.
- A wiring circuit may be overheating.
- Your wiring may be outdated.
- There may be other safety issues.
- You're buying or selling a home.
