The Importance of Electrical Inspections & Testing for Your Home, Apollo, Pennsylvania

Electricity plays an important role in providing power to the many appliances and devices in your home. But without regular maintenance, you could run into electrical problems that put the safety of your family at risk. Regular electrical inspections are a vital step for this reason. The experienced electricians at TDF Electrical Inspections in Apollo, PA, are committed to the safety of your systems and explain the importance of inspections below. 

Why Electrical Inspections Are Important

Electrical InspectionsThe National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA) identifies electrical problems as the number one cause of property damage due to fires. Regular electrical inspections can help prevent some of these hazards and give you peace of mind knowing that everything is in working order.

What Happens During an Inspection

During an inspection, an electrician does a thorough examination of the home. They verify all outlets are wired correctly and in working order and that the fuse box is properly sized for the home. An improperly sized fuse box could be sending too much power, ultimately damaging anything plugged into the outlets and posing a fire hazard. Next, they will look at the wiring to check for outdated, damaged, or loose wires which could cause a short in the electrical system. Lastly, they make sure the proper voltage is sent to each appliance. Incorrect voltage could cause units to malfunction or stop working altogether.

Regular electrical inspections reduce your home’s risk of fire hazards and ensure safe operation of the electrical components in your home.
