When we provide an electrical safety inspection we like to make sure that you can understand exactly what we are looking for and quite frankly, why this is actually important. For example when we talk about electrical code corrections. This can lead to a variety of problems though. It can get you in a bit of “legal trouble”. Especially if you are looking to sell a home without updated codes. If you spot a problem like a lack of power on specific power outlets within your home there is a chance that your code is not up to date.
People usually don’t like to think that there can be all sorts of critters within your walls. These critters though have been known to damage wiring inside your home causing a lot of the electrical issues that you could be experiencing. Such as the aforementioned scenario of having power outlets that are not getting any type of electricity. In these cases, there are several steps that we could take to rewire your home. There are actually ways that we could rewire your home without having to remove the drywall or anything like that. This is, of course, something that is only going to be possible in particular homes not in all of them!
How Often Do I Need To Update My Codes?
The national electric code actually changes every three years. In an effort to protect people from all sorts of electric hazards. If this is the first time that you have heard about this, and you have been living in the same home for longer than that, you may want to pick up the phone and give us a call. It is not that you are in immediate danger. If you wanted to be a bit safer though, giving us a call won’t be a bad idea!
