    Why Should You Have Your Electrical Wires Inspected?

    You should have your electrical wires inspected during any of the following circumstances:

    • When buying a new home 
    • Every 30 years 
    • When installing a new appliance 
    • After a major renovation 
    • When having any work done on your attic

    Consequences of Bad Wiring

    Power surges, fire, or shocks that can be fatal, and faulty power arcs can be caused by bad wiring. Electrical fires rarely exude smells, which is why they are so deadly. They get worse before anyone notices them. And since no smoke is produced, smoke alarms rarely detect them. It could take up to one year for bad wires to ignite, but once an electrical fire begins, it can be hard to put out.

    Signs Your Electrical Wiring Has Gone Bad

    Thousands of homes catch fire each year due to electrical malfunctions. In order to keep your home protected, you should have your electrical wires inspected at least once every 30 years. If you have outdated or faulty electrical wires, your home can’t handle any increase in a power load, making them heat up quickly. The heat creates a huge fire threat that will put everyone in your home at risk. If you are worried about your electrical wiring, keep an eye out for these signs:

    • Wires that are damages
    • Melted insulation or melted wiring
    • Electrical appliances that are scorched 
    • Wires that are discolored
    • Frequently tripped breakers and blown fuses
    • Odd noises coming from the wiring
    • Messy wiring and burning odors
    • Warm and/or vibrating outlets
    • Lights that flicker often

    If you believe that your electrical wiring is outdated, you should contact us immediately. We will send a qualified electrician to perform a comprehensive inspection to remove and replace all damaged wires before they spark and start a serious fire.

    What to Expect During an Electrical Wire Inspection

    Our professionals will inspect:

    • Smoke alarm testing
    • Verification of proper smoke alarm placement

    • A check to confirm that your home is using proper light bulb wattage
    • A search for any source of potential shock or electrocution 
    • Assessment of proper grounding systems
    • Verification that surge protection is being used appropriately
    • Confirmation that the electrical panel contains the right labels and amps and is functioning properly
    • Verification that the arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) are working as they should
