If you’ve never had your home’s electrical system inspected or you’re wondering why you should hire a professional electrician, here are five reasons why you shouldn’t delay scheduling an electrical inspection.
- 1.You’re looking to purchase a home.
If you’re not a professional electrician, you likely aren’t trained to recognize the signs of a dangerous electrical system. Unless the home is brand new, call Blue Apple Electric for an electrical inspection. Our electricians will check for strange odors, arc faults, counterfeit electrical products, buzzing sounds, flickering lights, broken light switches, loose outlets, hot ceiling fixtures, problems with circuit breakers and warm or sparking outlets and switches. You will receive a professional report detailing the electrician’s findings and recommendations for repairs.
2. You’ve just finished a major remodel.
If you’ve moved walls, added new appliances or are looking to sell the home, it’s a good idea to hire a professional electrician to make sure the home’s electrical components are in the right places and the system is safe to use.
3. Your home’s electrical system is outdated.
If your home was built before 1940, you may have obsolete lighting components, such as knob-and-tube lighting. A professional electrical inspection will help identify which components need to be replaced and upgraded.
4. You’re looking for ways to cut electricity costs.
An electrical inspection can help identify malfunctioning parts or inefficiencies that could be costing you extra in energy every month. An experienced electrician can recommend upgrades that may lead to significant savings over the course of months and years. Developments in electrical systems are offering more and more opportunities for homeowners to cut energy and reduce their home’s carbon footprint.
5. You want to keep your home safe.
Whether you’ve got little kids or furry friends in the home, a professional electrical inspection can help keep you and your loved ones safe. An experienced electrician will check for fire hazards, housing/electrical code violations and faulty electrical components, and recommend necessary repairs.
