Your home's electricity runs behind the scenes, inside the walls of your home, allowing you a great variety of modern comforts. However, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), electrical problems are the largest cause of property damage in home structure fires across the U.S.
An electrical home inspection provides a thorough examination of your entire electrical system, ensuring all visible electrical wires, systems, and components, such as appliances in your home, meet legal safety standards. The National Electrical Code (NEC) is the code that all electricians operate under when examining and working in your home. It defines the parameters for minimum installation guidelines across the United States. Upon completion of your electrical home inspection, a J.S. Electrical LLC licensed electrician will provide a detailed, prioritized checklist including areas in need of immediate attention, recommendations for improvements, and potential upgrade possibilities.
The Electrical Safety Foundation recommends electrical home inspections when:
• Purchasing or selling a home • A home is 40 years or older • Adding an appliance • A home has had a major renovation
