When was the last time you checked your home’s electrical system to make sure it was safe? Unless you recently bought your property or did major renovation work, it is possible that it has been a while since the last electrical safety inspection. But why would you want to have one?
The importance of an electrical safety inspection
In most houses, the electrical systems are hidden away in the walls and ceilings, often unthought about unless they are causing problems or big bills. Out of sight and out of mind, problems could be lurking nearby, invisible until they get out of hand. An electrical safety inspection can help put your mind at ease or give you a list of problems to address to improve the safety of your home.
Prevention is better than cure and a safety inspection could warn you of potential problems, such as faulty wiring that might cause circuit breakers to trip, or help prevent an electrical fire in your home.
When to get an inspection
There are a few reasons to get a safety inspection of your electrical system. If you are buying or selling a property, you should definitely check the various systems.
Similarly, if you are planning major renovations or additions to your property, this is a great time to check that all of the systems are working properly, and that there are no problem areas.
Even if you aren’t about to break down a wall to add another room, there are still reasons to get your system checked. If you plan on running appliances somewhere that used to not have significant power draw, such as turning a bedroom into a home office, then it is worth checking that the wiring, plugs and circuit breakers are all up to the new task.
One other reason to check the electrical systems is down to the age of the property. If your home is 30 years old and you don’t have a record of any electrical safety inspections, then this is a great time to get your home checked.
