Common Problems Found During Electrical Inspection
Bad Wiring: Older homes have outdated forms of wiring that need to be replaced before you move in. Damaged wiring, such as wiring that has been improperly installed or frayed, can lead to a variety of dangerous problems. An electrical contractor can ensure that the wiring in your home is up-to-date and safe.
Unsuitable Grounding: Sufficient grounding receptacles are crucial for maintaining proper function within a home. If your home’s grounding is unsuitable, a trained electrician can ensure that it meets code.
Outdated Electrical Paneling: Your home’s electrical box should be easy to access and up-to-date. During the inspection, the electrician will check the wiring to ensure that there are no frayed ends or exposed coiling.
Damaged Electrical Outlets: If your outlets are sparking or overheating, that is cause for alarm. Not only will the electrician need to secure the electrical outlets, but they may also need to incorporate more outlets into your home.
Inadequate Power Issues: Oftentimes, older homes do not meet standard powering levels for modern day families. Your electronics need to be able to operate without causing damage to the infrastructure of your home. During an inspection, a licensed electrician will ensure that your home has adequate electrical capabilities.
