When Should You Get an Electrical Inspection?, Apollo, Pennsylvania

Your wiring and electrical system are one of the most important components of your home. Breakdowns can lead to costly repairs, prolonged periods without power, and even injury, which is why the staff at TDF Electrical Inspections in Apollo, PA, wants to stress the importance of getting a regular electrical inspection. Without it, you have no idea how well your wiring is holding up, if there are any warning signs of potential problems, or if repairs are needed. If you’ve yet to get an electrical inspection on an existing or new construction home, refer to the guide below.

What Is an Electrical Inspection?

electrical-inspection-tdf-electrical-inspections-llcDuring an electrical inspection, a state-certified electrical inspector will take a comprehensive look at your home’s system. The primary focus is the wiring, power boxes, and safety switches, but they’ll extend this to components such as appliances and connections to ensure they meet safety standards and aren’t exhibiting any red flags. If something is found, the electrical inspector will suggest a course of action to repair issues and educate you on best practices to maximize the system’s lifespan.

When Should I Get an Electrical Inspection?

According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International®, there are several key reasons to get an electrical inspection. The first is if you’re buying a new home or have just built one. You want to be sure everything is correctly installed and in working order before making a major purchase, and an inspection is the only way to verify this. This also includes any home additions or major renovations. If you live in a home that is over 40 years old, it’s also good to have an inspection to ensure nothing is worn down. Installing new appliances is another good time, as you need to be sure that older wiring can withstand the power demands of newer home appliances.

The most important thing an electrical inspection provides other than safety is peace of mind. TDF Electrical Inspections offers a variety of commercial and residential electrical inspections, as well as emergency services, and are committed to ensuring you get the most from your system.
