How Often Should You Schedule an Electrical Inspection?, Apollo, Pennsylvania

Your home’s electrical system is the power source for everything from kitchen appliances to the smartphone in your pocket. Just as any other system, regular maintenance is required to ensure optimum efficiency and longevity. Residential electrical inspections will ensure all wiring, outlets, and power sources are working harmoniously, and that you aren’t overpaying for utilities or putting your family in danger. Keeping to a regular electrical inspection schedule will help you stay safe and save money. Consider the following information if you’re in the dark. 

How Often Do I Need an Electrical Inspection?

electrical inspectionLegally, homeowners are required to schedule an electrical inspection every 10 years. However, in many cases, there is reason to schedule maintenance more often. If you’ve purchased a new property, an inspection will ensure you have made a worthy investment and the home is safe to move into. If your current residence is more than 40 years old, it’s likely to contain knob and tube wiring, which is dangerous and must be removed. Any renovation or addition of a major appliance warrants an electrical update from a licensed professional. Likewise, any change to your walls, wiring, or outlets should be monitored by an expert in the field. 

How Will an Electrical Inspector Help Me?

A licensed inspector will start by performing a thorough examination of the home to confirm that all outlets are wired correctly and there is a properly sized fuse box for the home. Next, they’ll check the wiring to rule out any threat of a shortage caused by outdated, damaged, or loose wires. Finally, they’ll confirm the proper voltage is being sent to each appliance, so each component operates smoothly.
