When Does My Home Need an Electrical Inspection?

March 21, 2022 | Blog

Many homeowners often neglect to receive an electrical inspection. Some people believe, “If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.” While this can be true, this is not the case for a home electrical inspection.

Our Bob’s Heating and Cooling team recommends you receive an electrical safety inspection at least once a year. We want to ensure all Louisiana homeowners know the signs they should get an assessment.

When Should You Schedule a Home Electrical Inspection

Many homeowners believe you only need an electrical safety inspection when buying a house for the first time or adding a new addition to your home. There are many other reasons you may need to schedule an assessment. Here is a rundown of the few reasons you may need to schedule an examination.

After DIY Electrical Work

While we do not discourage DIY-ers, getting your work checked by a professional electrician is essential. Getting your work checked by a licensed electrician will ensure that all your work has been successful. If you are planning on completing a DIY electrical project, give us a call, and one of our electricians can help you along your journey.

If You Did Not Get an Inspection Before Buying

Electrical inspections are not just to see if things are connected and working correctly, but they are a way to ensure the safety of your home. A proper electrical assessment is critical when buying a new home. If you were unable to receive on at the beginning of your purchase, be sure to receive an examination soon.

When Adding Any Additions to Your Home

Adding additions to your home requires technical knowledge to ensure proper wire safety. During your inspection, the inspector can assess any upgrades or fixes needed. You can get them fixed when you are renovating. It is also an excellent way to ensure your home can support a new addition.

If You Live In an Older Home

Electricians may not build older houses to the same code we have now. There may be some outdated wiring that can cause issues down the road. If your home is 20-30 years old, an inspection is highly recommended.

What Happens During a Home Electrical Inspection?

When you call one of our trusted electricians to provide you with a Berwick electrical inspection, they will do a thorough walk-through of your home. Here is a list of things your inspector will check in your home.

  • Proper Circuits: Your home must have the correct number of circuits for the electrical demand of your space. During your home’s examination, the electrician will look at all the circuits to ensure everything is in top-notch shape. There are also dedicated circuits for specific appliances in your home.
  • Electrical boxes must be flush with the wall and large enough to control all the wires that they will contain.
  • Cables and wires must be connected in a certain way to ensure the safety of your appliances and, most importantly, your home.
