There’s no question of the value of having an expert take a look at things to ensure that they’re in working order. This is no less true when it comes to a home electrical inspection wherein a professional will come and examine the current workings of your home’s wiring and more.
When Should You Schedule a Home Electrical Inspection?
You want your house to be wired safely and to code, but this can be hard to confirm as a person without experience in the industry. These inspections can prevent electrical fires and more and are an investment that you should at LEAST consider in depth.
If you’re looking for a new home, then this should be a step taken to check the status of the house’s wiring. Particularly if you’re eyeing older models, then consider that they will likely have been wired decades ago and that this could pose a safety risk before long, if it doesn’t already. “These homes also commonly lack the power supply and wiring necessary to support the wide array of electronic devices used in homes today.”
Another time to opt for a home electrical inspection is before having any major renovations done. Since you’ll be upgrading some part of your home, you’d want to make sure ahead of time that these changes will be able to be supported by your electrical system. Something else to consider along this vein is an energy audit, which you can read more about here.
Finally, at some point, your insurance company might ask you to have an inspection carried out at certain milestones in your home ownership, or if you’re changing agents/policies/etc. This makes sense, considering that risk assessment is a big part of their job, and they would want to know if the current state of your system provides any potential problems.
