Picture of Electrical Inspection

Is Your Home Up to Electrical Code?

With new technology comes new responsibility. All of us have electricity constantly flowing through our homes, and our daily lives depend on the ability to plug-in. Picture cooking dinner without an oven, or going grocery shopping without having a refrigerator to put your food in, or trying to coordinate plans with your family without a phone. It’s almost unimaginable because electricity is deeply embedded in each and every one of our lives. We depend on electricity, and we expect it to be there for us when we need it. It’s a form of comfort; however, it can pose potential harm to you, your family, and your home. And, one electrical issue can cause a domino effect of power problems in your home.

Common Electrical Problems In Your Home

  1. Flickering Lights

  2. The Need to Frequently Change Your Light Bulbs

  3. Dead Outlets

  4. Warm-to-the-touch Outlets and Light Switches

  5. Tripped Breakers

  6. Power Surges

To make sure your home is running efficiently and effectively, it’s best to have a professional electrician perform an Electrical Safety Inspection. These issues can cause wire corrosion and home fires, so it is important that you keep an eye out for these electrical signs--they indicate danger.

Regular Inspection Benefits

The best way to establish peace of mind, knowing your electricity is safe, is by booking regular electrical safety inspections.

These inspections will ensure:

  1. Your electrical connections are up to code

  2. Your home is eco-friendly and energy-efficient

  3. Your energy bills are lowered

  4. Your electrical appliances are safely installed

Additionally, electrical code inspections are advised to ensure your electrical system adheres to updated Texas electrical regulations. This is a great way to find out if your appliances and electrical systems need updating, or if your property is safe and electrically secure. Codes are amended for your safety, so it is important that your home is up to date, and meets electrical standards.

You should schedule a code inspection if:

  1. You are installing a new kitchen, laundry, or bathroom appliance

  2. Your home was built over 40 years ago

  3. You have never had, or have not frequently had, your home inspected

  4. You have consistent, repetitive electrical problems

  5. You are renovating, or expanding your home

  6. You are buying a new home

  7. You are selling your current home
