An electrical safety check can safeguard your home or business and give you peace of mind. When little things go wrong, it can be easy to ignore them. Unfortunately, there’s no such thing as a “little” concern when it comes to electricity. That’s because even minor electrical malfunctions can point to something much larger. An electrical safety inspection can help put you at ease.
Common Electrical Hazards
If you have buzzing outlets, hot-to-the-touch electrical outlets, or frequently blown fuses, it’s time for an electrical safety inspection. Whether your home or business is older or just experiencing electrical overload, an expert assessment can get to the root of your issues.
Frequently Blown Fuses
Most of us experience a blown fuse from time to time. But if it’s becoming a regular occurrence, it’s time to bring in the professionals. Frequently blown fuses might point to a problem with the breaker, damaged or outdated outlets, damaged wiring, or an overloaded circuit.
Electrical outlets should be seen and not heard. If your outlet is buzzing, spitting, or humming, the message it’s sending isn’t a friendly one. Contact the licensed team at Thomas Edison and let us solve the case of the talkative outlet.
Frequently Dimming or Flickering Lights
If a light is dimming or flickering, there could be a simple explanation. It could be a faulty switch or a problem with the bulb itself. On the other hand, regularly dimming or flickering lights could point to an overloaded circuit, loose wiring, or voltage fluctuation. An electrical inspection can help diagnose and repair the issue.
Electrical Safety Inspections
A home in electrical distress will send clear signals alerting you to the need for professional action. With an electrical safety inspection, our trusted electricians can determine why your electrical system is functioning poorly. You can think of an electrical safety check as a preventative measure that can save you a lot of money and heartache in the long run.
When Do I Need An Electrical Safety Inspection?
If you’re experiencing electrical issues or have an older home or business, getting an electrical safety inspection is a good idea. Older systems weren’t designed to handle modern electrical loads, so they struggle with the demand, and significant safety issues can arise.
What Does An Electrical Safety Inspection Involve?
During an electrical safety check, we can inspect:
Your electric meter for potential defects
The capacity of your circuit breaker, including any risk of overload
Electrical wires to see if they are damaged, exposed, or frayed
Whether your GFCI outlets are properly wired and in good working order
Electrical Safety Inspection Benefits
Malfunctioning electrical systems are bad news. They cause frequent issues, make your home less energy efficient, and put your family in danger. Since electrical demand has increased dramatically, you may need repairs or upgrades to keep everything running safely and smoothly. An electrical inspection will reveal what’s required.
