Is It Time To Schedule an Electrical Inspection?

When you are buying or selling a home, it is important to ensure that all of the electrical systems in your house are working properly. This means scheduling an electrical home inspection to make sure that everything is up to code and in good condition. Electrical inspections, by a licensed electrician, can help you avoid unexpected issues down the road and can also help protect the value of your home.

If you are wondering whether it is time to schedule an electrical inspection, there are a few key times when you should consider one.

Electrical Inspection if you did not get one when you purchased your home

If You Did Not Get One When You Purchased Your House:

Most homes that are being sold will have an electrical inspection done prior to being put on the market. However, if you purchased your home a while ago and never got an electrical home inspection, it is definitely time to schedule one now.

Electrical Inspection Before Significant Home Upgrades

Before Significant Home Upgrades:

If you are planning on doing any significant home upgrades that will require electrical work, it is a good idea to get an inspection done before starting the project. This will help ensure that your electrical system, including your electrical service panel, can handle the additional load and that any work being done meets current local and national electric code requirements.

Electrical Inspection After any DIY Work

After Any DIY Work:

Even if you are an experienced electrician, it is always a good idea to have another set of eyes look at your work after you finish. Electrical inspections can help identify any potential problems that you may have missed.

Electrical Inspection if you have never had one

If You Have Never Had One Done:

If your home is more than 40 years old or you have never had an electrical home inspection done before, it is definitely time to schedule one now. Electrical systems can deteriorate over time or become damaged by external factors, so there is always a risk of problems brewing beneath the surface.

Electrical Inspection After a Major Storm

After A Major Storm:

If your home has experienced any sort of major storm damage, it is important to have a home electrical inspection as soon as possible. Electrical systems can be easily damaged by flooding or high winds, so it is important to make sure that everything is still safe and up to code.

Electrical Inspection If You Are Having Any Electrical Problems:

If You Are Having Any Electrical Problems:

If you are experiencing any electrical problems in your home, such as flickering lights or tripped breakers, it is important to get an inspection right away. Electrical issues can be a sign that the wiring in your house is damaged and could potentially lead to a fire.

Scheduling an electrical inspection does not have to be a hassle. You can easily find a qualified electrician in your area to come and take a look at your electrical system. Electrical inspections are usually not very expensive, and they could save you a lot of money down the road.

Custom Pop-up Outlet with Wireless Charging

A Clean & Clutter-Free Aesthetic

Outlets in the wall are unsightly. They typically don’t match the room decor, they stick out on your walls, and are often inconvenient in their placement. They make your room look cluttered and often interfere with your overall aesthetic. Plus, cords to your electronics will often have to drape over the side of your cupboards or end tables when in use. Exactly what you don’t want! But a pop up outlet hides in a countertop or built-in when not in use, preserving the look of your room. And when in use, it helps keep cords from being in the way. Win-win!

This custom pop-up outlet also includes a wireless charging port on top, which can be used even without extending the pop-up outlet!  Contact us at ARC Electric for installation of your outlet – in reading nooks, kitchen counters, or other built-in counters, as you please.
