Electrical Safety Inspections

Insurance companies often require electrical safety inspections for older homes and buildings. These inspections commonly uncover outdated wiring types like knob and tube or aluminum wiring, old fuse panels, obsolete breaker panels, and non-code-compliant wiring additions. Addressing these issues is essential for securing insurance coverage.


We recommend enhancements like 120-volt smoke and CO detectors to protect your home further. With our extensive experience, we will identify these problems and make your home safer, giving you peace of mind and ensuring compliance with all safety standards.

Proactively scheduling an electrical inspection when listing a home can save a lot of stress later on. We frequently conduct inspections during the subject removal phase, and discovering electrical issues at this stage can add unnecessary pressure. Instead, we recommend having an inspection and addressing any issues in advance. Providing a safety report to potential buyers can streamline obtaining insurance and financing. This proactive step ensures a smoother subject removal and a successful sale.

Signs You Require an Electrical Inspection

As the term suggests, an electrical inspection refers to the examination of your entire electrical system by an electrician. There are several reasons to get an electrical inspection, such as:

Purchasing a home:

A home is a significant investment, and it requires due consideration. While an assessment of the structure of the property is essential, an examination of the electrical system is pivotal to ensure that it is safe to occupy. This will also help you decide whether the home is worth the investment.

Age of the property:

If you own a property older than 30 years or are considering buying one that falls under that category, an electrical inspection is crucial. Over time, a property's electrical system can wither, and its wires can become compromised.


Are you planning on undertaking a home renovation? An electrical inspection will help ensure your current electrical system works with the new additions. This will also help you make informed decisions about the features you add to your renovations.


In some cases, your insurance provider might ask you to carry out an electrical inspection. Professional electricians can help you meet the demands of your insurance provider and prepare a report for you.

Electrical problems:

If you notice anything amiss with your electrical system, you should consider an inspection. We recommend paying attention to the following signs:


  • Sparks

  • Exposed wiring

  • Unusual noises

  • Flickering lightning

  • Burning smells
