What Is an Electrical Safety Inspection?
During an electrical safety inspection, a licensed electrician examines and inspects each aspect of your home’s electrical system, including, but not limited to:
- Wiring, specifically looking for outdated or damaged wiring
- Electrical panels
- Fuse boxes or circuit breakers to look for oversized fuses or overloaded breakers
- Large components and appliances to determine if the outlet is appropriate
- Electrical outlets (both interior and exterior), specifically looking for GFCI outlets and grounded outlets, ensuring they are functional and safe
An inspection determines that all the electrical components and systems are safe and meet the National Electrical Code and local regulations, as well as an electrician can spot problems before they worsen into more expensive issues or turn into fire and safety concerns.
