Electrical Inspections – When Should I Get One?
Getting electrical inspections for your residence means you’re taking a vital step toward keeping your family, tenants, and valuables out of harm’s way.
Avoid a catastrophe
Every year, hundreds of people are injured or killed due to electrical fires or shock. It’s every parent’s worst nightmare that their child unknowingly puts themselves into danger through using items wired with electricity. The sad truth is that nearly all of these catastrophes are avoidable. Regular property inspections are your greatest chance of protecting your family from harm’s way.
Who do I call?
Many people find themselves in need of an electrical inspection but often get stuck because they don’t know who to call. Do you call the appliance manufacturer? Your last electrician? Or your mate next-door? The correct answer is that you should call a qualified and experienced electrician.
What to inspect
What gets inspected depends on whether or not you’ve been keeping up to date with past inspections. This is because appliances and installations have different inspection lengths and it’s likely that only a couple of things are tested each time. If you have had regular electrical inspections with the same electrician, not all appliances and switchboards will need to be checked. But if you haven’t been keeping the inspections routine, it’s probably going to be a longer job since more installations require testing.
If in doubt, get it checked
There are more reasons than you think for having a home electrical safety inspection. Are you in the process of purchasing or selling a home? Worried about your home’s current electrical status? Have you had recent scares or run-ins with an unexpected electrical issue? Are you updating an older property’s electrical system? Or do you have an unreasonably high power bill? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s time to get an electrical inspection.
Safety always comes first. By scheduling a home electrical safety inspection, you are taking an important step in ensuring the future wellbeing of your family and home.
