Electrical Inspections Can Include

Electrical inspections can range from an entire home or building to a specific switch or outlet

During an electrical inspection of a home or business, an electrician will generally cover a range of components and systems to ensure they're functioning correctly and safely. Here's a unique list of the most common items an electrician might inspect:

Electrical Panel: The electrician will examine the panel for any signs of rust, loose breakers, or other issues. They will also check the breaker ratings to ensure they match the circuit wiring. Any overheating signs, indicated by scorch marks or a burning smell, will also be noted.

Circuit Breakers and Fuses: These components will be tested to ensure they're functioning correctly. Electricians look for any signs of wear or damage and will verify they’re the correct size for the circuit they’re protecting.

GFCI Outlets: Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter outlets are designed to protect against electric shock in wet or damp areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, and outdoor locations. Electricians will test these outlets to make sure they're working correctly.

Electrical Wiring: The electrician will inspect visible wiring for signs of wear or damage, such as fraying or discoloration. They will also check to see if the wiring is up to current electrical code standards.

Outlets and Switches: Each outlet and switch will be tested for functionality. The electrician will also check for any signs of wear, heat damage, or improper wiring.

Light Fixtures: Electricians will inspect and test all light fixtures, looking for any potential issues like flickering lights, which could indicate a poor connection, or any damage to the fixture itself.

Remember, an electrical inspection is a vital safety measure that helps identify potential electrical issues, ensuring the electrical system in a home or business is safe and up to code.

Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors: These safety devices will be tested to ensure they're in good working order. The electrician will also check if they’re appropriately located according to safety regulations.

Surge Protectors: If the property has surge protectors installed, the electrician will test these devices to ensure they're functioning correctly to protect your electronics from power surges.

Outdoor Electrical Systems: Any outdoor lighting, outlets, and power meters will be inspected for damage and tested for functionality. The electrician will also ensure all outdoor electrical components are weatherproofed correctly.

Electrical Appliances: For a comprehensive inspection, the electrician might also check large electrical appliances like HVAC systems, water heaters, or ovens to ensure they're correctly connected and not putting any undue strain on the electrical system.

AFCI Protection: Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters are designed to prevent fires by detecting dangerous electrical arcs. The electrician will check if these are installed in the appropriate locations and functioning correctly.

Electrical Bonding and Grounding: Proper bonding and grounding are crucial to ensure electrical safety. The electrician will verify that the electrical system is correctly bonded and grounded.

Remember, an electrical inspection is a vital safety measure that helps identify potential electrical issues, ensuring the electrical system in a home or business is safe and up to code.
