Code Corrections We Can Complete

If your home or business has electrical issues that are not code compliant, we can help!

Improper Bathroom Outlets: Bathrooms should have Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlets to reduce the risk of electric shock in damp areas. A common violation is the use of regular outlets in bathrooms.

Incorrectly Sized Circuit Breakers: Circuit breakers that are too large for the wire they're protecting can result in the wire overheating and potentially causing a fire. This often happens when people replace fuses or breakers and don't match the wire's amperage rating.

Lack of Tamper-Resistant Receptacles: As per the National Electrical Code, tamper-resistant receptacles are mandatory in all homes, particularly where small children reside. They prevent children from inserting objects into outlets.

Insufficient Outdoor Outlets: It is required to have at least one outlet at the front and back of a house. Often older homes lack these outdoor outlets.

Overcrowding Wires: Overstuffing wires into an electrical box can cause overheating, damage to the insulation, and the potential for electrical fires. Each box is rated for a certain number of wires.

Lack of AFCI Protection: Arc-Fault Circuit-Interrupters (AFCIs) are required in all living spaces to prevent electrical fires caused by arcing faults. Many older homes lack these devices.

Improper Junction Boxes: Junction boxes protect wire connections from accidental damage and help to contain sparks and heat from a loose connection or short circuit. Sometimes, people make connections outside of junction boxes, which is a code violation.

Improper Spacing for Outlets: There are requirements for how far electrical outlets should be spaced, typically so that no point along the wall is more than six feet from an outlet. Often, outlets are spaced too far apart.

Using Indoor Equipment Outdoors: All outdoor electrical equipment should be weatherproof and suitable for outdoor use. A common violation is the use of indoor-rated equipment in outdoor settings.

Non-Compliant Extension Cords: Permanent use of extension cords is not compliant with electrical codes. They should only be used for temporary power needs.

Each of these violations presents a significant safety risk, and a licensed electrician should be called to make the necessary repairs to ensure your property is compliant with the current electrical codes at the municipal, state, or national level.
