Like any other system in your house, the electrical system requires regular maintenance and upkeep. But because the majority of your system isn’t regularly visible, it’s easy to overlook. Fortunately, a licensed electrician can perform a home electrical safety check. You’ll get increased efficiency and reduce your risk of an electrical fire. Here’s what’s included.
Inspect Your Electrical Panel and Wiring
An electrician fully inspects your electrical panel for torque and makes sure everything is properly grounded and there are no compromised parts that create a hazard. Ground-fault circuit interrupters or GFCIs are tested, too. Your GFCI is a fast-acting circuit breaker designed to shut off electric power in the event of a ground-fault within as little as 1/40 of a second. The polarity of the wires in your home is checked, too, for efficiency and safety.
Clean and Inspect Heaters and Fans
If your home has a wall heater, an electrician cleans the grills and assesses the heater’s function. Exhaust fans are also looked at. Grills are cleaned and inspected for damage, too. Because their performance may decline so slowly, you may not even realize your heater or exhaust fans are running at reduced capacity without an expert looking at them.
Assess Whole House Protection
A smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector are the best ways to prevent an unnecessary tragedy in your home, and an electrician tests both of these when carrying out a safety check. You can also expect your attic and crawl space to be inspected for proper wiring and closed junction boxes to minimize shorts or accidental electrocution.
