How Your Home Can Benefit From An Electrical Safety Inspection

One of the main services offered at Lion Home Service is an electrical safety inspection, which is designed to provide a comprehensive examination of the entire electrical system in your Fort Collins home. An electrical inspection of your home ensures that your electrical components are working properly and that any safety or fire hazards are caught before they become a real problem.

What Is An Electric Safety Inspection?

An electrical safety inspection checks the whole of the electrical system throughout your home to make sure that it’s working as it should. Every wire and component that the electrical system consists of is inspected thoroughly to ensure that safety standards are met. Once the inspection has been completed, you’ll be given an extensive checklist that details everything that our service experts did while also advising you on how to best improve your electrical system. While these inspections cover anything pertaining to your electrical system, the main areas of focus include:

  • Testing any carbon monoxide or smoke detectors
  • Testing your electrical panel
  • Checking security and safety lighting
  • Checking the wall outlets and switch operation around your home

How Often Should I Have Electrical Safety Inspections?

When it comes to having electrical safety inspections done, there are several factors that determine when you should schedule one of these inspections. Whenever you purchase a home, it’s essential that a safety inspection is performed for your electrical system. Any home that’s at least 40 years old should also undergo regular electrical safety inspections at least once every year.

New Appliances and Renovations May Warrant an Inspection

If you’ve recently installed a new appliance in your home, an inspection will be able to help you determine if the wiring is correct and up to safety standards. In the event that you’re planning a major renovation for your home, it’s likely that this renovation is going to lead to large amounts of rewiring and appliance installations, which is why you should always schedule an inspection following the completion of a renovation.
