Electrical Safety Inspection
Does Your Home Need Electrical Rewiring?
Even though the lights and TV still come on, your electrical wiring could still need upgrading. If your house is more than 40 years old, your existing wiring might not meet your family's current power needs, or it might no longer be safe for your home. Faulty wiring is the leading cause of house fires. Old wiring isn't necessarily dangerous; but you can't be sure the system is up to code and materials like wire insulation can deteriorate over time.
If you have any of these warning signs, you should schedule your electrical inspection with our licensed electrician:
- Breakers that trip or fuses that blow repeatedly.
- A tingling sensation when you touch an appliance.
- Flickering or dimming lights.
- A persistent burning smell from a room or appliance
- Warm, discolored or sparking outlets.
- You have two-prong, ungrounded outlets throughout the home.
- You don't have GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlets in Kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas exposed to moisture.
- Your insurance carrier charges you higher premiums because you have older or aluminum wiring.
- You are using extra power due to smartphones, computers, air conditioners or flat-screen TVs. This lack of power isn't just inconvenient, it can cause damage to your sensitive electronics.
