Home Electrical Inspections
When you schedule an electrical inspection for your home an electrician will identify the kind of wiring your home has, test all the outlets and make sure there are functional. They will check that ground fault circuit interrupters (which can protect you from electrocution, electric shock and electrical burns) are installed in areas like the bathrooms, kitchen, garage and outdoors. They will also check your electrical panel for any safety issues and check your electrical outlets to make sure they do not present a fire hazard.
If you have damaged or exposed wiring in your home, it can lead to deadly electrocutions and fires. According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International ‚ÄúWiring hazards including damaged and exposed wiring and household wiring together accounted for 20 percent of electrocutions.‚Äù If your home does not have surge protection, your valuable items, including your important computer files, can be damaged or lost.
One of the newest electrical codes to be updated involves ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs). This code requires that all bathroom receptacles and all kitchen receptacles servicing countertop surfaces must have ground fault circuit interrupters to protect against electrocution. Electrical regulations are set by local city, state or national legislation.
