Electrical Safety Inspection
Every year hundreds of people are injured or killed due to electrical fires or shock, but the sad truth is that nearly all of these catastrophes are avoidable with a regular home electrical safety inspection. By having your residence inspected by the experts at Electric Express, you take a vital step toward keeping your family, tenants, and valuables out of harm’s way. It’s best to get it checked, to be safe rather than sorry.
There are more reasons than you think for having a home electrical safety inspection. Here are a few examples of when you would want to give our team a call:
- If you’re in the process of purchasing or selling a home.
- If you’re worried about your home’s current electrical status.
- If family members or property occupants had a recent scare or run-in with an unexpected electrical issue.
- If you are updating an older property’s electrical system.
- If your power bill is unreasonably high.
- If your home is older than 25 years or uses old wiring.
- If you’ve recently installed new electrical appliances, such as solar panels or kitchen equipment.
- If you want to make your home more energy efficient.
How often should I book an electrical safety inspection?
For most houses, an inspection every three to five years is sufficient for maintaining the safety of your home. However, for residences with a swimming pool, we recommend an annual inspection due to the unique requirements of electrics around water. Furthermore, if you can’t remember when the last inspection was booked, then it’s a good idea to book one in as soon as possible. Especially if your residence is older or you’ve recently moved into a new residence.
